Recently I had the pleasure of writing a thank you note, and in the process I had the thought that, like letter writing, the practice of writing thank you notes may be a dying art. Let’s face it, most people don’t handwrite anything these days. We email, we text, we pick up our cellphones, we even Skype. We communicate in all kinds of ways, but we just aren’t handwriting much of anything anymore.
What I know for sure, is nothing can replace for me the simple pleasure of receiving a simple handwritten thank you note. And, in today’s noisy, electronic world, a thoughtful card, with a few lines of “thanks” handwritten inside, is a stand out symbol of caring and personal attention. If you are an artisan seller, include a short thank you note with every purchase you mail out. Your customers will love it!
Here are some great thank you notes I found on Etsy. Maybe they will inspire you to pull out your pen and write a thank you note!
