Christmas cards from wildfire companies

We enjoy looking at Christmas or holiday cards that are sent by companies that are involved in wildland fire. It is interesting to see how they interpret the holiday while at the same time including a (sometimes) subtle advertisement for their products, or a thank-you for being a customer.

Here is a photo of the front of the card that was sent to us by one of the supporters of Wildfire Today, Thermo-Gel.

Thermo-Gel Christmas Card 2009
Thermo-Gel's holiday card

Inside the card it reads: “Wishing you a happy holiday season and a successful new year. Thermo-Gel.” The card also includes a handwritten message from our contact at the company.

Sorry the photo of the card is a little crooked; the card was perfect, of course. I took the photo with my Droid cell phone, after my attempt at scanning the card failed. The scanner software separated each of the six images on the card into six individual files. Foiled by technology again, which thought it knew better than I did what I needed!
