I know that thank you cards are important, but what am I supposed to write in them? Is just signing them enough?
Thank you cards are an essential courtesy, but they can be confusing. After all, it’s a part of traditional etiquette that too often gets forgotten. When you’ve had a big event, whether it’s a wedding, shower, religious ceremony, or graduation party, you’ll need to thank your guests.
If you are thanking a guest for attending, all you need to do is write a short note thanking them for being there on your big day. A short anecdote can be added, but isn’t necessary.
To thank somebody for a gift, it can be good to mention it directly. Thank them for their gift and comment on it. This can be saying how you have used it or will use it, why you like it, or how generous it was of them.
The main thing to remember is to write from the heart. Don’t worry about writing anything long; a few sentences is plenty if they are genuine.
In many cases, the tone of what you write can be set by the style of thank you card you choose. This can be matched to other parts of your stationery, such as invitations, or even include a photo. You can find plenty of design inspiration among our fully customizable selection online!
