In today’s business world where most communication is done through email or text, it may come as a surprise that handwritten thank you cards are just as relevant as ever.
Taking the time to send a personal thank you card shows your appreciation and makes a lasting impact.
I love sending out thank you notes. For example, one of my clients left a great video testimonial for me. To show my gratitude, I’m going to send him a thank you card.
Though I know the value of giving a thank you card, I’m just not good at sending them out.
Fortunately for me, I have a robot that does it for me.
Here’s How Robots Can Help You Send Thank You Cards
This isn’t science fiction. This is the real deal.
A robot can really handwrite a thank you card for you. This is great news for me!
When it comes to thank you cards, there are several reasons I don’t like to write them myself:
1. My handwriting is terrible. Maybe you don’t have this problem, but my chicken scratch doesn’t look good in a thank you card.
2. Sometimes I forget to pick up a card. Like most of you, I have a busy schedule. I don’t usually have thank you cards on hand and I might forget to pick one up at the store. Thank you cards are important and I don’t want to forget to send one to a client.
3. I prefer typing over handwriting. It’s a personal preference, but I know a lot of people feel the same way. If I can type out a thank you note as opposed to writing it in a card, I’m much more likely to follow through.
So how can a robot take over the thank you card for me?
I use a website called Bond.co. I am not affiliated with this company, but I can honestly say that I love their product.
There are a lot of websites out there that will create a card for you that looks handwritten, but Bond is the only one that I’m aware of that uses a robot and a pen to create the message. The robot writing the note gives the paper pen impressions that make it look like it was handwritten.
There are many ways to personalize your note. You get to select the card you want and even pick the handwriting style. I prefer to use Bedford, but you can look through the options and see what you like the best.
Once you’ve selected your card and typed your message, you can add the address. The thank you card is mailed directly to the recipient with your address as the return address.
These cards cost approximately $5 a piece, or less if you order more than one at a time. I know it can be cheaper to send these cards yourself. I would rather pay the premium to make sure they get sent out on time and look nice. It’s a worthwhile expense in my book.
There’s No Excuse To Not Send A Thank You Card Anymore
There is no excuse for those of you that avoid sending thank you cards because you don’t like to write or don’t have the time. You can have a robot do it. It’s quick and painless to send thank you cards when you have a robot doing it for you.
