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 a virtual thank you card, we can help. When using one of our online thank you templates, we set you up with the two most important words (we think you know the ones) and offer a little verbal embellishment and artwork to make your grateful notes extra graceful. All of our sample text is 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 thank you cards to multiple recipients after an event, it can be helpful to use the same general format—just make sure each message acknowledges the specific gift you received. A personalized 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.
