“While saying ‘thank you’ is important, the beauty of a well-crafted handwritten note is that it can show deeper investment and appreciation than a simple thank-you can.” – John Coleman, Harvard Business Review

You can convey deeper emotions in a handwritten note.

“Your thank-you note should recapture the smile, handshake to hug you would give the giver in person, and offer it in a form that can be read and reread.” – Margaret Shepherd, The Art of the Handwritten Note

They set you apart from the competition

Handwritten notes easily distinguish you from competitors who are still sending emails.

If you want to stand out, to be more polished, probably the easiest thing you can do is write that thank-you note.

– Heather Wiese, owner of Bell’Invito
