"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."
If you want to thank someone for a gift or an act of kindness, you may want to find a standout card. Gold thank you cards from Shutterfly have pops of color because they are foil-stamped. This elegant decoration may help you achieve your goal of sending a good-looking, quality card. Most people choose to buy bulk thank-you cards when they know they’ll be getting a lot of gifts, but when should you send a hand-written note of thanks?
There are certain occasions that necessitate a thank-you card. There aren’t necessarily hard-and-fast rules, but etiquette dictates that you send a written note if you receive a gift in the mail, around special occasions or that was handmade.
Around the holidays, many families get together and open presents with everyone there. When presents are opened in front of the gift giver, a verbal thank you is usually sufficient. However, not all families get to spend big holidays together. When personalized gifts have to be sent through the mail, you should send a thank you as a reply.
Many people receive lots of gifts around their birthday, wedding, anniversary, bridal shower or baby shower. After these special occasions, you may want to send out gold thank you cards to the guests and gift givers alike. In these instances, etiquette mandates that you have the thank yous send out within a month of receiving the gift.
If someone made a gift for you by hand, you should thank them for the thought with a handwritten note. A handmade gift could include baked goods, a quilt, needlework or anything homemade.
Sending a thank-you note is a thoughtful way to show your appreciation. However, if you don’t have cards on hand, it can be challenging to reply in a timely manner. Be prepared for acts of kindness by keeping custom stamps, cards and envelopes at the ready. Depending on the gift you were given, you may even want to send a small, personalized gift along with your gold thank you cards.
