What to write in a thank you card

Sometimes, it can be hard to put your gratitude into words. If you need a little help deciding what to write in your thank you card, we can help. When using one of our online cards we set you up with pre-formatted thank you card text and offer a little verbal embellishment and artwork to make your grateful notes extra graceful. All of our sample thank you cards are fully customizable, and we recommend making the thank you card text specific to the gift or act of kindness you’re thanking the recipient for. If you are sending birthday thank you cards to multiple recipients after an event, it can be helpful to use the same general format—but make sure each message acknowledges the specific gift you received from the specific guest. A personalized thank you card is always appreciated. In addition to gifts, kindness, gratitude, support, hospitality, friendship, or ‘just because’ are all good reasons to send a thank-you card and brighten up someone’s day. We also have the perfect thank you cards for teachers and thank you essential workers.

When to send thank you cards

For smaller, intimate events, best to try to send thank you notes within a week or two. For wedding thank you cards, we recommend sending within three months of the celebration.
