When was the last time you sent handwritten thank you notes after a job interview or business meeting? Personalized thank you notes or cards go a long way. The message will likely brighten up someone’s day and it’s a great way to share your personality, gratitude, and interest in a job.

Handwritten Thank You Notes

I love sending thank you cards, birthday cards or a card to say hello just as much as I like receiving them, so I’m always looking for fun stationery to brighten up someone’s day.

I recently ordered cards from Basic Invite, a website that allows you to customize invitations, stationery, and any card you can imagine. You can select from hundreds of designs, unlimited color options and add a little extra flair with flat or raised foil on cards available in gold, silver and rose gold.

What I like about these thank you notes/cards is that you can instantly see the preview online, so you can make sure there are no mistakes in ordering. There are 180 different color options for the cards, and 40 different colors of envelopes to add a pop of color to your message. I ordered pink, green, purple, and blue. You can choose a card for every holiday, occasion or select anything from personalized graduation invitations to thank you cards for graduation.

After I selected my designs, which I customized with my name I was able to order a printed sample of the card to see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before ordering any more.

Every year around the holidays, I usually have to send a text message asking friends for their addresses before I can send them a holiday card. Basic Invite lets you share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request your friends and family’s addresses so you can send the cards directly from the site after you choose the design.

How to send a thank you note

  1. Choose the right cards to send. Keep it professional.
  2. Start with a greeting. “Hello, it was so lovely to meet/see you.”
  3. Thank them for the specific item, or their time. Keep it short.
  4. Add a closing for example. “I look forward to hearing from you.”

When was the last time you got a thank you card? I always send one after job interviews or whenever someone does something really nice for me just to say how much I appreciate them!
