Would you (general you) be ok with a type written thank you card with a personalized message for each guest?
I have handwriting that would make a grade school teacher cry. Im seriously considering this as an option
My way of looking at this is that it would have been so much better in any case if it was a personalized message. Thats the important part to me- that each thank you card be different and unique to the person its being sent to.

WOW!! Some people are amazing. We’re planning on using our engagement photos to have thank you cards made (so that I can get them out quickly, not have to wait for the wedding pics to come back) with a blank inside for the handwritten message. Then I will probably do the same to have Christmas cards made, use the engagement pictures. I don’t think we’ll get the wedding ones soon enough to get Christmas cards made (wedding in early November)

If it is personalized from the greeting all the way to the salutation, I see no harm in typing/printing. Having each thank you note be personal and specific (as treejewel19 stated) is what really matters.

As long as you have a personalized message, that is all that really counts. Maybe you can sign your name, just to be on the safe side:)

If I dont send thank you cards, my mom will probley disown me. Honestly, shes someone who thinks is SUPER important. And it is!!! Im planning on doing thank you cards, and including a picture, so its sort of the best of both.

I wouldn’t be bothered by the pre-printed card, but I wouldn’t be impressed at all with no personal message and signature. It’s really frustrating when someone can’t take the time to properly thank someone for their generosity.

I think that is in poor tastes. Even if there was a typed message inside that was generic and they then wrote a little message to each person I would be okay with it. I was invited to a wedding last October and couldn’t attend. I sent a gift. Never got a Thank You. I was really irked by that.

I think it would be super cute! You could do it on kraft paper and tie it with twine or something, it would be awesome…as long as it was personalized!

Seriously. We’ve attended several weddings in the last few years and never received anything. Fiance was IN one of the weddings! I’ve also only ever received one thank you card for a baby shower, from FI’s best friend (their card was awesome, too). I attended BOTH of FSIL’s baby showers, gave a very nice gift, and helped with set up and cleaning. Nothing.

I have gone to three weddings this year and three bridal showers… I have not received one thankyou card.
Maybe they haven’t gotten around to it yet, but it seems like it’s becoming the norm – atleast in this area.
I personally think it’s rude though!

I’ve never NOT received a handwritten thank you, so I would be super taken aback as well.

My mother would KILL me if I didn’t personalize a thank you card. It’s been ingrained in me the proper thank you card etiquette.

I would’ve give those people a gift in the future. It’s SO rude not to write someone a thank you card.
