Frequently Asked Questions

How much time is this going to take me?

It won’t take you long to write a thank you note. It will take 2-5 minutes per note.

How do I find people's addresses?

You can always send an individual a note via their company address, and it’s easy to find company addresses on their websites. If you can’t find their address via the internet, send them an email and ask. It’s ok to mention you’re sending a surprise.

How long should a thank you note be?

As short or long as you want, but you don’t need to write a lengthy note to be impactful. Short is sweet — we recommend about 50 words.

Do I need branded stationery?

Nope, the thank you is what counts. Branded stationery is a nice touch, but it’s not necessary.

What if I have too many people to thank?

If you’re overwhelmed or crunched for time, use a handwritten letter service like Letter Friend or MailLift. You can also hire a TaskRabbit or virtual assistant to complete the task for you.

What if I have messy handwriting?

Don’t worry about it. Your handwriting is yours, so own it. If you think your writing is too hard to read, you can always ask someone else to write the note on your behalf.
