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.

As long as you hand-write a heartful thank you note on it, it’s fine!

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.

(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.
