So I recently got a thank you card from a wedding I attended 8 months ago. They were nice thank you cards, and then I opened it up and the bride and groom had typed their “thank you’s” and cut out the message and glued it inside the card.
I have never seen that before and I am left wondering…tacky? Genius?
I really do not know what to make of it…do you?

If it was a cute personalized message that was actually relevant to my gift and how much they loved it and why, I wouldn’t mind. Honestly, my handwritten ones were so ugly that a typed one would’ve been much easier to read for most people. I also wouldn’t have wasted any because I can delete words when I make a mistake.
Now if they were all generic Thank You cards and everyone gets the same message, that would annoy me.

im pretty traditional, so this is a big no no to me! Gah! They probably copy and pasted the word. The engineer (and matlab enthusiast) in me, is thinking I could totally write a program based on the invite list that would spit out all my invites for me. But then, that’s not be point of thank yous now is it? It’s showing that you have taken the time and effort to personally thank them for their gift!

It depends on the card. If it’s a handmade card, with a personalized typed messege, I think it’s ok. If it’s a generic card with a generic typed message, I think it leans towards the tacky side.

I have HORRIBLE hand writing, and I will be typing my thank yous. I type my end of year cards for my students. I write out a small, personalized note, and print it on a card. I’ll probably do similar for my thank yous

@missjewels: My 90 year grandma dies this because she has advanced Parkinson’s and cannot write due to tremor, anyone without Parkinson’s has no excuse…

@Nona99: I love that your 90 year old grandmother is that insistent on writing a thank you note. 🙂
OP, I am pretty traditional, so I don’t like this at all. I find it tacky. Unless you have some type of something that prevents you from holding a pen, this should never happen. If someone takes the time to purchase a gift, we should take the time to writing a note. It’s not that hard!

@missjewels: Do you have a picture of the card?
