When Should You Send Thank You Cards?

Collection of Christmas present boxesThank You Card > E-mail

Is there even an argument here? Everyone knows that getting an actual card in the mail means more than digging an e-mail out of hundreds of others. Text messages and e-mails are awesome for a quick and efficient correspondence — not a meaningful or personal message.

There’s no competition.

If you want your thank you to really hit home and have meaning behind it — sending an email is not the best way to do it. Snail mail has a much different effect than email or text message. Take advantage of this and send a real-hold-in-your-hand card to make an impact.

Daily opportunities to say thanks!

Sending a personal thank you card is not reserved for Weddings and Birthdays. While mailing proper thank you notes after getting married is a must, there are other daily occasions that call for a practice in gratitude. We’ve listed some of the major occasions that call for sending thank you cards along with some daily occurrences that you may not have thought about.

But before we dive into the occasions, let us address the timing.

When should you send out thank you cards?

15 Dog Greeting Cards & Gifts to Send to Your Pup-Loving Friends

WTH is a dog greeting card [you may be asking]? If you’re the kind of person that is more likely to run after a puppy than run in your local 5k, then you’re likely going to vibe with this post very well. If on the other hand, you’re over there thinking what a bunch of weirdos — there’s still a chance you’ve got a friend or two that would fall under this description. Dogs, after all, are what make the world go round.portrait-of-a-dog-astronaut-in-space-on-background-of-the-globe-of-picture-id898916798 (1)

Back to the ‘dog greeting cards’ concept. Of course, we’re aware that dogs can’t read. Although we’re convinced if you read the cards to them, they’d totally comprehend. These greeting cards (with the exception of one) are meant for those folks in our lives that would rather play with the puppy than be social at just about any social gathering. You know the one. They probably have a furry little friend of their own. These cards are not only designed for these folks — they’re designed by them. So — if you have a friend of this liking in mind, they’re going to love you that much more after you send them a delightful dog birthday card. Even if you don’t get it, they will. And they’ll love you that much more.

[And if you’re more of a cat fellow, we’ve got just the list of cards — here.]

Don’t forget, all these delightful dog greeting cards can be mailed within minutes without you ever having to leave your couch (or change out of your PJs). That’s right. These cards are out of this world adorable AND easy as can be to mail. Just choose the card that really tickles your fancy, write your message and click send. Postable will print, address and mail your dog card for you. If that’s not woof-ing awesome, we don’t know what is (another pun, perhaps). Continue reading
