What customers have to say about our Thank You Cards

Best way ever to send a thank you
"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."

Shutterfly team, you've outdone yourselves!
"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."

"We used these for my 9 year old to send for his birthday thank you cards. We left the inside blank so he could write a personal note. They turned out very nice."

Teaching Children to Write Thank You Cards
Thank you cards are important for children to learn how to use. It's the kind of skill every parent hopes to pass on to the next generation for how well it reflects on their children. Get your child excited by letting them choose their favorite color, such as yellow thank you cards. If you have been struggling with instilling this skill in your children, then here are some tips to get the ball rolling.
Young children are just developing their skills in empathy. If you use this skill while it's forming to promote good habits, they often become linked to feeling good. If you're trying to get a young child to write a thank you card, use an example of a time when someone thanked your child for something and remind them how that felt.
Teach by Example
If it's time for your child to write thank you cards, then get some out yourself. This is easy during the holidays when both you and your child receive gifts. However, if it was your child's birthday, it just means you'll have to dig deep and come up with one or more things people have done for you lately that you are thankful for.
Give Your Child Some Agency
Letting your child have a say in how the cards look and what is written in them is especially important as kids get older. When they take charge of one or more aspects of the thank you note process, they're building good habits for future appreciation. You can let them choose a picture to put on the card or how the address labels will look.
Just as it's important to say thank you to someone in person when they do something nice for you, thank you cards are important as little reminders of love and appreciation. For just about any color, including yellow thank you cards, look at our customization options. You can also create personalized postage stamps for your thank you cards and other mail.
