Hi all,

I am looking to get some stationery printed to use for writing thank you notes. Does anyone have an example of what it should/could look like?

I was thinking of maybe a 5"x7" or 6"x4" size with my name printed in the centre of the short side in plain font eg Arial or Times New Roman.

I remember bflynn once described what he uses but can't seem to find that thread anymore.

Any suggestions?

I got some plain cards called "Deckle Ivory - Note Cards" from that have been just dandy. Unfortunately, they no longer seem to stock them. :( Remember what M & M say in the cast... a set of 10 plain cards that say "thank you" that you buy at Target will do just fine.

It's not the card, it's the sending and the content that matter.

Don't overthink this one...
pmoriarty give great advice.

My only addition is that you buy "mixed" packs of cards, so when you're sending a second (or third!) card to someone, it's not the same format every time.

Ooops - I might be overthinking this... :lol:

I was just looking at this site:

They have 30% off plus free shipping right now (see home page).

I know that it's not important what the paper is like, but I selfishly enjoy having nice paper to write notes on. I have taken to the flat cards as of late because it's very quick and easy to jot off a quick note without overthinking it.

My personal favorite for paper quality is Crane.

:wink: Just happy to share a way to reduce cost...I think I paid a total of 17 bucks for my first order of 25 cards. Though I went with a Navy Blue border - just to be different!

Personally, I found a neat little greeting card place and buy different assortments of ten. Some very classy, some more fun. I use them differentially as I want them to be a reflection of me as well as the relationship.

No matter which one I use I always get positive feedback, so i guess I either: Pick really well Or It doesn't really matter. I'm guessing the later.

I am a High I, and I believe more colorful/modern cards are more effective with fellow High I's. And I'm sure others would disagree.

I have been sending out dollar store thank you cards (8 for a dollar). I sent a couple out to friends who hosted me for a weekend and when I saw them next, they acted like I had given them a billion dollars.

I don't think you have to spend a lot on the cards, just make sure you send them :)

There is a recurring theme in this thread. Simple is good.

I believe a note is as good as a card and the fewer frills the better.

One rule - handwritten.

In the UK (forgive me if I am in error - UK MT Crew feel free to admonish) thank you cards or notes following an interview would be rare.
