Handwritten thank you notes are becoming less and less common, in part because so few people know their friends’ physical mailing addresses anymore. Postable is a web-application that’s working to bring back this tradition, offering people a way to collect addresses and send personalized thank you cards to their friends and loved ones.
Etiquette dictates that you should send a handwritten thank you card when you receive gifts or other thoughtful gestures, but that process can seem daunting when you’re the bride-to-be, the mom-to-be, or the very lucky birthday boy and you’ve got dozens (or hundreds) of notes to write. Offload some of the burden to Postable by signing up for an account and creating a free online address book. Postable will contact your friends and ask them to give you their mailing information. While that’s going on, you can get busy selecting thank you cards — Postable offers multiple cards designed by independent artists — and typing out the messages you want included in your cards.
Postable will print your messages using “ultra-realistic” handwriting or vintage typewriter fonts, so recipients will never know you didn’t write out the messages yourself. The web-application also handles the printing, stuffing, stamping, and mailing of your thank you cards, leaving you with more free time to enjoy your new gifts.
