The lasting impression or written thank you notes
Don't forget to send a thank you card--handwritten and through the mail,whether it is to thank people for birthday presents,meals people made to help you after a birth or G-d forbid death and to thank clients for their business. I thought it was nice and was just so impressed as I was going through the mail to get a thandwritten hank you card from Z Folio Gallery in California for a purchase made a week and a half ago.
Often many of us take the "easy route" and zap an email or don't send a thank you at all,which leaves givers wondering if you appreciated their gifts/purchase and may make them less inclined to help you/give you future business or refer you.
Think of it this way...how great do you feel when you receive a birthday card in the mail? I'll go out on a limb and say you feel pretty darn good and appreciated by you. I think a written note is one of the most honest and sincere acts of kindness and good will.
