Inspired by a thread earlier today, I’m wondering if it would be horribly tacky to send personalized generic TY’s? By that I mean we would order TY’s with something along the lines of “We’re so happy that you were able to share in our special day.” printed and then hand write a personalized TY for the gift they gave.
To me this doesn’t seem bad but I’ve never received a TY like this so I wonder if others would find it tacky. Thoughts?

It’s a thank-you and it’s personalized in some way, so no, I don’t think it’s tacky at all!

IMO, as long as you write a personal note on each, it’s fine!
How is a photocard less polite than a hallmark card? 🙂 Plus bonus free photo!
Tacky would be getting upset if everyone doesn’t hang it on their fridge 😉

I think it would be alright if you included the generic message, and then personalized like you said. If there is just a generic message without any handwriting, that would be poor form.

Thanks for the feedback. It just seems so repetitive having to write the same opener on 40 TY’s when it could just be printed.

I just got one like this. They had ordered photo notecards from Kodak Gallery with their wedding photo on the outside. I loved the photo card idea. I am a stickler for etiquette but as long as there is a handwritten note, I think that’s fine. Kind of wish I had thought of it…

Sounds like a good idea to me. I agree with everyone else, if there’s a handwritten note in there, too, it’s fine.

Totally fine–just make sure you DO personalize it!

No that’s fine – I get many TYs like this!
As long as there is a personal note I think it’s fine!

The only problem I see coming up is what if they didn’t attend the wedding but still sent a gift? Would you have a different card?

As long as you don’t do this: I went to a wedding over the summer where they handed out pre printed, unpersonalized, thank you notes as you left the reception and that was it 🙁

That is what I am doing. I got them to match my invites and didn’t want them just plain, do I had that same thing written on them at the very top of the inside and then will write a personal note to each person.

@seattlemeg: We would order some blank ones for those that couldn’t attend.
@ninefivethree: Wow, thats… lovely? lol

(although I have dreams–dreams!–of making one stamp that says: “Thank you for coming. We loved the gift” and pounding through like I’m that lady at the DMV).
I swear I’m klassy in person.
