Well, I can’t say I agree with you on that one (I’ve received a few handmade cards through the years, and those I really cherish), but the cards will be written by hand.
Ah, yell as much as you want – it’s refreshing!
I guess I could close the topic though, but then again – I do still get interesting and nice comments. Like the girl from Finland, it was nice to see that she was of the same mindset as I – for a moment there I was starting to question the way my parents brought me up (then I asked this same question on my Swedish blog and everyone thought it was a little crazy to hand write all the cards). Happy to know there are cultural differences!
As for the “You’re awful” posts… I don’t take them to heart, but I do get a little frustrated from time to time. 🙂

I don’t go for hand written thank-yous. It doesn’t seem formal enough to me.

First of all, thanks for your sweet words when it comes to the cards! As you’ve pointed out, I did choose the method of making them myself and by so made them more labour intensive than the normal card. As such, I do think it becomes even more important for me as the creator to finish them in a way that pleases me. However, my take home message from this entire discussion is that there are big cultural differences – and as FI’s family is Canadian, hand writing is the safest route to go no matter how much it pains me.
As for the side conversation I’ve had with suburbian – well, you do seem to have taken it for what it was: just a fun little side rant! 🙂 Because I do have to laugh a little when I get comments telling me I’m horrid for wanting to print the messages (yes, all personal). These are thank you cards accompanied by a gift… I can hardly see my bridesmaids tossing a fit over a present they got for being there on my big day, just because I didn’t hand write the card! 🙂
So you think printed ones are more formal and that, that outweighs the personality aspect? Interesting new take on this question! May I ask where you’re from? I do get the sense that peoples back ground has a heavy influence on their opinion in this matter.
They will be hand written.
