"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."
One of the most common times to send out lots of thank-you cards is after a wedding. You can use pink, blue or purple thank you cards to let your guests know how much you appreciate their gifts and presence. While sending this type of a note is common, there are still come misconceptions. Consider the following dos and don’ts as you compose your notes.
Etiquette is an important part of sending out thank-you cards no matter the occasion. For a wedding, some say it plays an even bigger role than it normally does. As you write your guests to thank them, you may want to keep these tips in mind.
Do make the notes extra personal by mentioning the specific gift you were given as well as the person you are writing to. You can mention a special dance you shared or what you are going to do with the gift in the future.
Don’t write about how you disliked a particular gift. Every thank-you note you send out should be positive and equally eloquent. By discussing your displeasure, you may make the recipient feel unappreciated. A note that is too short may have a similar result.
Do try to be prompt in sending out your notes. Most experts suggest having the thank-you notes sent out by the day after the wedding or at least within the month. This amplifies how much your guests’ presence meant to you.
Don’t send out a prewritten thank you that you simply have to sign. Your purple thank you cards should be a place for handwritten notes. This extra touch makes your appreciation more apparent while also making the note more personal.
As you get ready to send out your purple thank you cards, you may realize you need a few other accessories. Whether you need personalized stamps, address labels or a statement gift, you can find much of what you need right here at Shutterfly.
