Examples of Thank You Notes (Sympathy Thank You Notes, etc.)


Thank you notes and thank you cards are a snap with these easy-to-use, ready-to-copy samples. Sharing gratitude with a short

card or note is a great way to let the people in your life know you care. It is also a great way to let your customers and business contacts know that you are conscientious and thoughtful. If you’re the only supplier, vendor, or business partner who bothers to send such a note to them, then guess what? They’re going to remember you, and

positively so. Every little bit of advantage you can get should be gotten, plus it’s just a polite thing to do.

Here are a few quick tips for you to remember when sending thank you notes:

Use the word “you” more than the word “I.” It puts the focus on the person you are thanking.

Hand write your thank you notes. If you have poor handwriting, then type business and job interview letters, however, nothing beats the impact of handwritten note or card.

Send your thank you notes via post and not Email.

Mail your notes right away. For job interviews, mail the notes the same day and make sure each person you interviewed with gets his or her own uniquely worded letter. The five most requested thank you

notes are for the job interview thank you letter, business thank you note, funeral thank you note, baby shower thank you card wording, and wedding thank you. Below I have a series of simple and short but professional and appropriate examples that you can use as-is or modify and personalize for your business and/or client.

The bodies of the thank you notes are provided below.
