Thank-you cards aren’t just a polite response; they’re a relationship-building tool that leaves a lasting impression on the recipient. They’re more thoughtful than an email or call as they show somebody that you took the time out of your busy day to give appreciation. Moreover, for small business owners, thank-you cards for customers, vendors, and employees are a gesture of how highly you value the business relationship.
However, generic thank-you cards are less likely to make a memorable impression. Thank-you cards are an opportunity to reinforce your company’s image and personal ties to the recipient. Custom thank-you cards are a way to express your company’s values; personalized cards let the recipient know how important they are to you.
Look no further if you are looking for ideas for creative thank-you cards. Our easy-to-use templates, design support and varied printing options allow you to add personal details to thank-you cards. Here are our best ideas for making your thank-you cards stand out and resonate with your customers.
You want your card to really speak to your recipient, and one of the best ways to do this is with a creative design. Your card should have unique elements that stand out from the pack. Fortunately, this doesn’t require much time or creative direction; instead, you can personalize one of the thousands of Canva templates on our website.
Canva templates are straightforward to use as a starting point and can be customized to your brand guidelines. Fonts, images, colours, and more are at your fingertips. The use of Canva-designed templates means that your card will look polished and professional for your business. Plus, the files are print-ready!
Work With A Designer
For a personal touch that matches your vision, you have the option of working with a professional TPH designer. This way, you benefit from that designer’s experience with knowing what looks good digitally and how that translates to a paper card.
Small Business Tip: Ask our designers to leave space on your postcard for you to handwrite your own thank-you. This type of card can be included with E-commerce orders or given to employees and vendors.
If you work with many customers and vendors who deserve thank-you cards, varied printing is the option for you. This will allow you to have a design with minor changes, like customer names, in the same print run.
To make your card really stand out, we have multiple finish options, including matte, satin, gloss, soft-touch, and trendy coloured edges. Additionally, Embossing and debossing, spot gloss and foil elements add intrigue and luxury to designs. These elements are small touches that have a huge impact; they make your card look and feel unique.
Having a card that stands out means that your business – and your appreciation – are all that much more memorable.
