Do you use business thank you cards to let valued customers know that you appreciate their loyalty? As a blogger, I occasionally receive a thank you card from a brand or blogging group that I work with regularly. It’s a nice feeling to know that someone appreciates the work you do. As a freelancer, we don’t get a lot of thanks for the work that we do so it’s nice to see a thank you card occasionally.

How to Choose Business Thank You Cards

Have you ever considered sending out a thank you card to the brands and PR companies you work with regularly? After all, as bloggers, they are our “customers” when you really think about it. When choosing your thank you card, should you use a traditional card? Or a business thank you card? Here are a few things to consider.

Is it seasonal?

Will you be sending a thank you card after each job? Or once a year to thank your best customers? If you’re sending it throughout the year, make sure you choose a generic theme. If you’ll be sending it once a year – say at the holidays – you can choose a Christmas or winter theme.

Thank You Cards from Tiny Prints

Consider the size

If you’ll be mailing the thank you card to clients, consider the size. You’ll want something that the post office will accept without needing extra postage. I look for thank you cards that are about 5″ x 4″ in size.

Preprinted message?

Would you like to have a preprinted message in your thank you card? Or would you prefer to write a message for each customer yourself? You may want to have a preprinted message and then sign your name. Or, have your name and the message printed already. Don’t forget to think about whether or not you want your name and address printed on the envelope for you to save time.

Personalization

Do you want to have a generic image on your card? Or would you like to have a photograph of yourself or your blog branding on the front of your card? Tiny Prints has a great selection of business thank you cards to choose from, and you can personalize them very affordably!

    This is a handy post. I don’t need business thank you’s any more, but my daughter does. It is always hard to decide just what is appropriate. I will be passing this along to her.

    Great Tips!

  3. Thanks for info!

  4. Oh all such great tips! I love the idea of writing your own personalized note!

  5. Dana Rodriguez says:

    These are great tips. My fiance’ has a small business so I am going to share this with him. Thanks!

  6. I like the business cards that have a blank side to write a personal message on the back. I keep them and they remind me of the business conducted. I like cards that don’t cram as much info as they can on them! I usually like to write at least a word or two on them, so I try to have some space on my cards too.

  7. Jennifer Essad says:

    I always worry about the person tossing my business card, special written note or greeting card with out even reading it! Not to mention the time and cost of purchasing and sending them!

    I think hand written business cards can really add some humanity to this day and time and the fast paced world.
    Great tips for choosing.
