"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."
"It is nice that someone as Non Technical as myself can with Shutterfly's help produce such a nice product."
"The quality is great and the delivery time fantastic. Just wish they had ability to customize size of pictures as they do on photo book pages. I'd also like the ability to add a custom text box."
"I will never buy notecards in a store again! It is a pleasure to send a notecard with my own pictures prepared in such a professional and high quality manner. It is also a great way to show off my skills as a photographer to my friends and family."
Have you ever been on the receiving end of a thoughtful gesture or unexpected gift? In times like these, it is important to thank the giver for their kindness. Here are a few tips for sending genuine secular or religious thank you cards.
Anytime someone extends a gift or service to you, you should always send a thank you note in response. For this reason, it is a good idea to always have secular and religious thank you cards on-hand and ready to drop in the mail at a moment’s notice.
When it comes to sending a thank you note to someone, timing is everything. Aim to send a thank you card within a few days after the gift is received, and no longer than a month afterward. The sooner you give appropriate thanks for a gift, the more genuine the gesture will seem. If you wait too long, the thank you card will appear to be no more than an afterthought.
When writing your thank you card, mention the gift that you received and how it brings joy to you. If you don’t like the gift, you don’t need to lie, but still be specific and thank the giver for the item. They don’t need to know that you plan to return it or exchange it within the week!
If you know someone is religious, add an extra touch of sentimentalism by sending them religious thank you cards. If they are avid gardeners, choose thank you cards with floral designs. Going out of your way to choose the appropriate card will not go unnoticed by the recipient.
While it is certainly not required, it can be a very thoughtful gesture to give a gift back in return. There is no need to purchase expensive items, since small gifts are often the most meaningful. Ideas include a piece of customized jewelry or a personalized frame. As long as you put thought into the gift, it will be received with gratitude.
