"I made thank you cards using a few photos of my toddler son, to send as thank you notes when various relatives and family friends give him a toy or gift. The cards are such a hit. So much more meaningful to have this personalized card than a store bought thank you card, and for about the same price or less than the store bought card. The quality of the cards and pictures are great. As my son grows up, I'm sure I will continue to design and buy personalized thank you cards like these. Such a special and meaningful way to thank someone for their generosity."
"Having enjoyed several Shutterfly photo books received as gifts from my son, I couldn't resist trying to create them myself. The ease of creation and the wonderful results got me hooked on Shutterfly. I've created six books so far, and I have the intention of scanning in all our photos and creating photo books to showcase them all. Just when I thought this photo creativity couldn't get any better, I decided to try my hand at greeting cards. My wife and I recently retired to the west coast and wanted some all-purpose cards to use for note cards and thank you cards. The quality of the cards I received has surpassed my expectation by a mile. They are incredible. I went with matte finish which I prefer. The cards are coated in what seems to be a plastic protective layer which will likely make these cards keepers. They're nice enough to frame. Even with the shipping cost, the cards are cost effective to give as one-off personalized birthday cards. I'll never use a store bought card again."
"The cards are super cute and great quality! Can't wait to send them out."
"This card design is beautiful!!! this was our second try and thankfully we chose this design. Is beautiful, elegant and neat. The size is great and the glossy cover makes it look so fine. The only bad thing about it is that you can't change the color of the " & " logo, which of course is lame because you would like to personalize it with your wedding pallet colors. However, it does let you change the color of the initials. Luckily, our wedding color was navy blue... so by combining the initials blue and "&" in light blue it ended up working very well. It was a hit! Everybody loved them. Great keepsake."
"I just love shutterfly!! I made these thank you cards and they turned out so cute!!! Everyone told me how much they liked them. The only thing I would like to see in the future is possible being able to write personal messages to each individual I am sending the cards to instead of them all having to be alike. Thank you shutterfly. You have got products and great deals."
Relationship maintenance is and always has been a key part of building a successful career in the business world. Whether you are an executive looking to move up, an entrepreneur looking to cement bonds with vendors and customers, or just a worker looking to make sure your regular contacts realize how much you appreciate their custom, business thank you cards provide you with the opportunity to send the right message whenever your contacts provide you with gifts, or just when it is time to show them your appreciation.
There are a variety of opportunities to send your thanks in the business world. The most obvious times would be when customers or vendors invite you out recreationally, such as to golf outings, retreats, or social gatherings. It is also a good idea to have them on hand to show gratitude to those within your organization, including both those you depend on to do your job well and the mentors who invite you to develop your professional skills more by providing access to opportunities. Depending on your position, it may even be a good idea to keep a couple styles of thank you card on hand, to present a slightly different message and design depending on circumstances.
Of course, the best way to say thank you for a gift in the business world is to reciprocate in kind. That’s why it’s always tempting to respond back with something you can customize, like a new coffee mug, mason jars, or pilsner glass. That way, whether the message is lighthearted and fun or memorable and motivating, you have the opportunity to personalize your thanks when you send a gift in return. Whether you are rewarding a mentor or courting a client, the personal attention and the addition of a custom message or engraving shows your attention to the relationship in ways that a generic gift just does not.
