"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 nice paper beautiful design. I was happy with these thank you cards!"
"I received my thank you cards in a timely manner. They were of great quality. I plan to continue using Shutterfly for all my needs."
"I ordered 5x7 wedding thank you cards with three pictures on the front and one picture on the back side and three from the inside. I ordered them on Tuesday and received them on Thursday. I LOVE THESE CARDS. they are beautiful. better than what I was expecting. The only dissappointment was getting a hold of a customer service rep on the phone. I emailed them with couple of questions and almost got an emmediate email back. The first time tried to call on the phone and i had an estimate hold time of 60 minutes !!!!??? Couple of days latter I called and was on hold for 15 minutes and talked to someone that was very helpful. He answered my question in 5 minutes.... Despite of long hold on the phone, the produce was excpetional. i am going to order my wedding picture 4x6 pictures also."
After a graduation, birthday party, baby shower or wedding, many people choose to compose and send out personalized thank-you cards as a way to show their appreciation for the gifts that were received. Shutterfly has thousands of options for you to choose from including patterned and pink thank you cards. Most of the products can be personalized with photos and special phrases. To make it even easier to send out these letters, you can get customized stamps and address labels too.
No matter why you are sending out a thank you, etiquette may dictate that you try to give a prompt response. Because of this potential time restraint, some gift receivers feel that, after a certain amount of time has passed, they no longer are obligated to send out a card.
According to many thank-you etiquette experts, it is never too late to send out these personalized notes. The preferred time frame may vary based on the occasion. For example, after a wedding you have about a month, but after a birthday party a week may be more appropriate. Whether you are a few days, a month or a year late on your writing, you should still pick up the pen and finish your thank you cards.
When you do send out belated thanks, you may need to follow a few extra steps. For example, you may be tempted to apologize for sending a late card. Instead, you should focus on the recipient rather than yourself. Talk about the gift he or she gave and the use you have put it to since the gift was given. It is okay to include a brief apology, but this correspondence is meant to be appreciative rather than apologetic.
Most people realize that life can get in the way of sending out perfectly timed pink thank you cards. Because of this understanding, you should strive to send out your cards no matter how late they may be.
