@peachacid:  Depends how close I am to you. I would only want an inserted picture if we were close enough that I’d want it on my refrigerator. Otherwise, I’d rather have a card with it on the front–I keep cards, so I’d still have it. I don’t know what I’d do with one loose photo print in this age of digital photography.

I prefer a card regardless 🙂

@peachacid:  Picture on the front. I’m honestly just going to throw away a pic inside the card anyway. I’m planning on  doing a photo collage thank you card, for this very reason!

Neither, I’m not a fan of photo thank you cards from a wedding. But on the front of the card if anything! I did print some photos of our guests and enclose them in the thank you card envelope but not one of us.

We used Shutterfly and had 3 glossy pictures as the front of the card with our names and a message on the inside. 

Some of our guests commented on how beautiful it was and how they loved the pictures on the front.

The only way I would really care about a picture is if I’m close enough to you to hang it on my fridge. So in that case I would prefer a picture instead of the picture being on the thank you card. If I’m not all that close to you it will all just be put into the box in my office that I put all my cards in.

@peachacid:  postcards would be nice because than I could just easily post it on my fridge! I agree though that they aren’t quite as formal. I thought about it a bit more and I think I would prefer the picture inside because it’s easier for someone to pin somewhere.
