After celebrating a birthday, a holiday or a wedding, it’s proper etiquette to send a thank-you note to the gift-giver, host or guest. Though customary, it’s a tradition that is often overlooked. Living a busy lifestyle, forgetting to make a visit to the card shop to purchase a card that can be delivered and finally, signing and putting the card in the mail at the local post office can take precious time out of the day — one of the reasons it’s often overlooked.

Finding ways to get the message of the thank you card across, without actually having to go through the entire process can help to save time, and your reputation.

What are some of the ways that you can save time and ensure that a thank-you card is being delivered on your behalf?

Thanks Note

1. Use Online Services

Popular online services can allow you to choose a thank you card that is right for the occasion, fill in the card with your message and deliver the card to the recipient by entering their mailing address. Services like Postable enable you to create and initiate the delivery of the thank you card via mail in moments, ensuring that you’ve maintained proper etiquette.

2. Use Personal Messages

Personal messages written inside of the thank-you cards are going to deliver heartfelt warmth directly to the person that is receiving the thank-you card. Look for services that enable you to not only customize the message, but the font and the graphics, the design and the appearance of the card. There are many services that even allow you to take advantage of authentic, hand-written cards, using a message provided by the sender.

What are some of the things you should consider when choosing a thank you card?

Think About the Occasion

The occasion that the thank-you card is being delivered to celebrate is important. Focus on the message of the card and choose a card that suits the person it’s being delivered to, as well as the occasion. There are many types of independently designed cards available; whether you are searching for something formal or informal — multiple options are available.


Consider the cost of the services that are being offered. Most delivery companies have various ranges of the cards that are available, starting at as little as one dollar. From that price, you can customize the appearance and delivery speed of the card. Look for services that are willing to offer customers bulk discounts for multiple thank you notes being delivered, helpful for occasions like weddings, and compare multiple card delivery companies before making the final decision.

Getting a thank you card in the mail is one of the first things that you should consider after a wedding, baby shower or special event. Conveying your appreciation for the gift of time to attend or a gift is simple with the many card forwarding services available. There’s no longer a reason to not send that thank-you card that you’ve been needing to, online card services have made it easier than ever.
