How to Say Thank You
Happy Thanksgiving! Before someone eats all of the turkey and falls asleep on the couch, you should take some time out of your day to say thank you to your clients, employees, bosses, and colleagues. We love writing customized letters, and we’ve created some simple ways to design a memorable and customizable thank you card.
The first step to creating a personalized thank you card is to plan. Create a list with the people you want to thank and some reasons why you are thankful for them. Make sure that your comments are personal, honest, and reflective of the way you actually feel. Once you plan, you can pick your medium. The best way to say thank you is whatever way you know how. We love writing cards by hand, but an email thank you might be just as nice.
Make sure you include the following information:
The person’s name: you can’t write a serious thank you letter if you don’t personalize it. Make sure that you spell their name correctly—you don’t want your thank you letter to backfire!
Specific reasons you are thankful: this is very important. You want to make sure that your note is personalized and specific. We’ve created some examples below:
Thank you for helping me get settled in my new position.
Thank you for being an open communicator.
Expand: Explain a bit about why they are important to you.
I couldn’t have finished Project Y without your help!
I enjoyed staying up-to-date with your current projects.
Create some follow up: This is where you show your client, friend, or colleague that you care about their future plans.
I hope you have a wonderful year!
I hope that you have a peaceful Thanksgiving, and I wish you the best!
Sign off properly: Like your introduction, you need to create a personal sign off.

No matter how small or large the gesture, thank you cards are a welcomed indication that you support your colleagues, friends, and customers, and these cards will ensure that your customers or friends feel recognized, loved, and acknowledged.
Happy Thanksgiving! We will be out of the office on November 27th and 28th for family and turkey time, but we will be back and ready to go on December 1st.
