"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."
"Great quality product made from thick card stock and with bold colors! Fast shipping that protects cards and keeps them in good shape. Always enjoy products ordered from Shutterfly!"
"Loved the way these thank you notes turned out. The colors are vibrant and we got great feedback from all the recipients. They really looked gorgeous. However, be careful when writing. The glossy paper does not absorb ink very well and it has a tendency to smear."
"I had gotten a similar card from a competing company and in this one the pictures looked MUCH better. The color contrast was all wrong and I couldn't see the kids faces from the other company. Shutterfly had great quality and I was very pleased with the finished product."
There’s a wide variety of thank you cards to choose from when you begin to look. When you find a design you like, there are also multiple options for personalization. You can change up the size, change the font, add your own photos and even change the color scheme. Something that you may not have considered is changing the card from flat thank you cards to folded thank you cards. While both are beautiful options, there are some benefits of folded thank you cards that you may not have thought of.
When you order folded thank you cards, you are giving yourself some extra writing space. You probably have a lot to be thankful for, and when you receive your order, you can get to town writing thank you notes to everyone who needs one. When there’s a fold, you have more of an area in which to write your note. You can expand the message to something that’s more personal, rather than just sticking with a message that’s cut-and-paste.
If you have some extra photos you want to include on the card, a folded option might give you some extra room to include them. After your wedding your guests will want to see pictures from the big day. They’ll delight in receiving a thank you card that contains multiple photos. Friends and family members will also find joy in receiving a card that contains many photos of your newborn child. No matter what you have to be thankful for, it’s always more personal and fun to say it with pictures. Folded cards also give you a sort of envelope in which to tuck in loose photos.
You might be creating folded thank you cards for a specific occasion, or you might be making them to send out in general when you find the need. Either way, it’s easy to personalize them. Check out some of our fun folded designs to get your project started today.
