6 Tips to Writing Personal Thank You Notes

Becca Barrett Photography

I’ve recently been writing lots of graduation thank you cards. I’ve sent them to my parents, grandparents, mentors and close friends. I am graduating from college in less than a month and I have a lot to be thankful for. I didn’t get here by myself and I think it is nice to thank people you helped you accomplish things in your life.

I’ve never really sent out thank you cards before. So I looked up how to do it online (thank you google). Here are six tips to writing thank you notes that I have discovered…

  1. Keep the notes short!
  2. Use nice thank you note cards. Thick card stock is really nice!
  3. Hand written notes are preferred when it’s a personal thank you, typed when it is professional.
  4. Be specific on what you are thankful for. Mention a time or a place the person did something meaningful for you.
  5. Do not have spelling errors (I type up thank you messages first, so I can use spell check).
  6. Send the notes in a timely manner.
