Quick tips for your happy Father’s Day messages

Before we share some messages you can copy and paste (and customize!), here are some tips to keep in mind for your Father’s Day greetings.

  • Be sensitive. Father’s Day can be a complicated or sad time for some. Keep that in mind as you plan your marketing campaigns around Father’s Day and schedule your messages.
  • Use inclusive language. Many people can act as a father figure—stepfathers, uncles, brothers, fathers-in-law, and other trusted adults. That’s why it’s so important to use inclusive language where appropriate in your Father’s Day messages.
  • Adjust your message. Depending on where and how you’re using your Father’s Day greeting, you may need to make tweaks to what we’re sharing. Customize these ideas and examples for your needs and the specific channel you’re sharing it on so it’s most effective for you.
  • Stay on brand. It’s always important to keep your brand guidelines and brand personality in mind when selecting or creating marketing messages for your business. And Father’s Day is no exception.
