    I have no idea what something like this would look like. What would it say? Do you have a photo?

    If they are normally used for headstones.. what would someone use them for?

    The postage alone would make it not worth the cost to me.
    Plus I’d be a little confused over receiving a tile from a wedding with no Thank You note – I’d guess that you weren’t all grateful about the gift and the thank you note wasn’t coming…

    I get touchy about thank you notes 😛
    So I would rather you spend the time/money on writing me a note! 🙂

    What are you supposed to do with the tile?  I mean, if it goes on a headstone, what do you do with one that says “thank you” on it?  I don’t mean to come off sounding rude … that it not my intent.  It’s just that I am not sure what one would do with it?

    It’s an interesting idea, but I don’t think I’d like a tile with someone else’s wedding picture on it hanging around my stuff forever. It’s not like I would display it prominently, and it would likely just take up space in a drawer somewhere if not thrown out. That’s a lot of money for you to pay to have people potentially just throw them away anyway.

    If you are really in love with the idea, I would limit it to your family.

    @BluSptLvR:  

    Few concerns:

    Postage. Those suckers look heavy.

    Second, this would be the kind of thing you would put on a mantle or somthing, do you think people would want to display a huge thank you card?

    I don’t think people expect aynthing special as a thank you card. Just a card is fine.

    As a guest, I honestly have no idea what I would do with it. I don’t like clutter so I doubt I would keep it. Also, I feel like this would cost quite a bit to ship.

    @BluSptLvR:  Would it be like a coaster? How would you ship them? I’d probably “recycle” it unless it was multi-purpose and I LOVED YOU TO PIECES! I’m probably not going to have something with your name hanging out in my house forever unless I loved you TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSS much. 🙂

    Well, I think it’s a great idea if you included ways of using it.  You said you use it as a coaster, which is cool.  What else could you use it for?  Just seeing it, I don’t know how much it weighs, how thick it is, etc. so difficult to tell what I’d use it for.  If I had it in my hands, then different story.  I’ve never seen one of those in real life, so have no idea of size/weight, or what I’d do with it off of a headstone!
