Many people underestimate the power of a handwritten thank you note. Some people think it’s better to quickly email one, but let me tell you, nothing brightens up someone’s day like getting a thank you note in the mail. Whether the note is for a gift or thanking an interviewer for their time, writing a note is the way to go. It really shows you care!

Here are some tips on how to make a thank you note great.

Purchase stationery
-We sell beautiful stationery from all over the world here at Mockingbird Paperie. If you are not local, we also sell products online at

Use a nice pen
-We sell beautiful rollerball and fountain Acme and Lamy pens!

Personalize the message
-Make sure to stop and ask how their family is doing or remember to put something that you talked about in the note. It makes it more personal and if it’s an interviewer they will remember you better.

Take your time
-Don’t rush through the note; the reader will know you did.

Always send a note even if the gift or gesture was small
-Nothing is too small or insignificant.

Happy writing!
