I’m patting myself on the back for finally sitting down this weekend and sending out the thank you notes for holiday gifts that, yeah, I probably should have sent a bit earlier. But then, it was the holidays! I’m a busy working parent! In other words, I am hoping that my friends, family and colleagues will forgive me–and I’m sure yours will do the same for you if you’re in the same position.
There are so many really beautiful new thank you card styles from designers and brands like Kate Spade, Jonathan Adler, J Crew, Petit Collage and more. Even cards that are perfect “from the kids.” Surely there’s something that feels exactly right, whether you want something simple and polite for your boss, or a little more cheeky for your favorite cousin.
As for pricing, there are a couple of free cards in there, like the playful Cirque thank you card. However most cards cost between one and three “coins” plus additional for premium options like a funky envelope, liner, or special “stamp.” 20 coins runs you $6, with big quantity discounts like 300 coins for $42.
If you figure that’s way less than what a pack of 300 real paper cards would cost to buy and mail–and probably less than the gift or party you’re thanking someone for in the first place–I’d say that’s a small price for being incredibly considerate. Even in mid-January.
