I love receiving thank you cards and save these sentiments of gratitude in a keepsake album. Every etiquette book will encourage, or outright demand, handwritten thank you notes. While handwritten thank you notes are ideal in many situations, they aren’t always practical in our fast-paced society.
So, what’s an event host to do when an email won’t cut it and handwritten notes won’t get done?
They turn to Postable! I discovered Postable this summer while searching online for thank you cards that could be sent for me. I honestly didn’t think I would find anything, but lo and behold there it was. My one stop, sanity-saving, shop. I placed my order and then added this fantastic company to my event planning toolbox.
Why did Postable make it into my bag of tricks?
Ease Of Use
From start to finish the process is easy and stress-free. When you’re multitasking, the less stress you have the better life is for everyone.
The card quality alone is worth the purchase. I’ve purchased bulk cards from stationary and chain stores before with disappointing results. The paper used would be too thin for my personal taste and the designs of those cards? Dull would be an understatement. The cards I sent through Postable weren’t too thin nor were they dull.
You would think with the quality you would pay a pretty penny, thankfully that’s not the case. The cards didn’t break my bank or raise my blood pressure.
By far, this is what sold me on using the company in the future. After I placed my order, I went about my to-do list celebrating because Postable had allowed me to mark off my thank you cards. Then I checked my mailbox a few days after placing my order and there was a thank you card from Postable! Not only did I get to see first hand the quality I had sent out, but I also knew that my business was appreciated. If you want to create brand loyalty you show appreciation to the people using your brand.
Postable exhibits the qualities that give a brand staying power. Which, from a marketing standpoint, excites me but not only that they made my life easier. I highly recommend them the next time you have to churn out a stack of thank you cards.
Regardless if you handwrite thank yous, use Postable, or send an email, please for the love of all that is good in this world do NOT send a thank you text message unless it's going to a friend. Or better yet, call them.
