“Nothing says thank you like a note written by a 4 year old. But for those who don’t have the monk-like patience it takes to elicit the above pictured type of work from a pre-schooler, there is hope.”

via Krrb: “A card printed on letterpress gives just the right amount of gravitas, but the modern design and bright color of this Tella Press card keeps things light and fun! You can find this card (and more!) on

Writer (and the blog’s editor at large) Brooke Williams goes on to give plentiful advice on producing a fantastic Thank You note, including a breakdown on the “anatomy” of the note’s written content. Specifically:

1. The Greeting (ex: Dear People of France,)
2. The Gratitude (ex: Thank you so much for the arrestingly beautiful Statue of Liberty you sent over to us.)
3. The Proof Of Use (ex: She now stands majestically in New York Harbor, greeting all who come to these shores in hopes of a better life. We really think she’s taken quite nicely to her new home.)
4. The Once And Future Contact (ex: We really appreciated your support of our effort to overthrow those blasted English – can you believe it was 100 years ago already? – and hope that we can stand side by side again should there be any similar conflicts in the future.)
5. The Gratitude (Again) (ex: Thanks again for sending Lady Liberty our way. We can’t imagine the harbor without her.)
6. The Exit (ex: xox The United States)

Such great pointers, and so desperately needed by some! Thanks, Brooke. xox Daily Design Idea.
