If someone has done something nice for you, then you need to show the individual your appreciation in a timely manner. This is proper etiquette, and you need to display that you know the right code of conduct to follow in this particular situation. it will be much easier for you to send out a thoughtful thank you note if you have some excellent personalized paper on hand. You won’t have to spend an exorbitant amount of time driving around town just in order to find some stationery that might possibly be appropriate for this particular occasion.
Some people might actually think it’s rather rude if you happen to just send them e-mail in order to convey your gratitude. Don’t make this mistake if at all possible. It could even cost you a professional relationship if someone is seriously offended by the fact that you did not remember to actually take the time to sit down and write the person a nice note after they did you a particular kindness that happened to make your day.
It’s even more important to have some personalized paper for thank you notes on hand if you know that you are going to be using this stationery in the corporate world. Never make the mistake of forgetting to send a thank you note after someone has taken time out of the schedule in order to grant you an important interview. This slight on your part could actually cost you the job of your dreams.
Furthermore, when you are using your custom printed stationery to write out a thoughtful thank you note, this entire process doesn’t have to be something that disrupts your personal schedule all that much. You just have to write a few sentences that convey your sentiments in a thoughtful manner. There is no need to write paragraph after paragraph to someone just because they happened to do something nice for you that you really appreciate.
Make sure that you buy some personalized thank you notes that you’ll be proud to use in a variety of circumstances. This means that you should probably make a concerted effort to find some stationery that has a rather subtle and toned down appearance. If you buy something that is relatively garish, then it might not be appropriate to use in a corporate setting. if you opt for a more conservative style of stationery, then you can get much more out of this important investment.
If you want to make a good impression on your friends or business colleagues, you should send them custom printed notes whenever an appropriate occasion comes up. Sending personalized notes rather than writing an e-mail or making a phone call is much more thoughtful. If you send these kinds of fold over notes, you will seem like a caring and kind person; everyone who receives them is sure to appreciate the fact that you took time out of your schedule to write them a note.
It’s a good idea to make sure you always have some personalized fold over notes in your home or office in case an unexpected event comes up that calls for you to write a note. You should also have these personalized papers on hand because you won’t want to get stuck sending out stationery you find last minute at a convenience store just because you didn’t have enough time to properly pick out some that reflects your style.
Shopping for this kind of stationery can be fun. You can opt to go to a nice stationery store if there happens to be one in your vicinity. You could even take a friend along with you if you think you might need help picking out the right kind of stationery for a certain event.

This post is dedicated to all the athletes everywhere. To all the rabble rousers who take to knocking each other out in the midst of true sportsmanship. To all the players, jocks, competitors, professionals, and amateur sports thespians who take to the court or field with pride, we salute you. Without your showmanship and hard work our weekends would be lost and forgotten. You understand what it takes to be a part of something great, so you sweat, bleed and sometimes scream in agony for your art.
Your job is not easy. You must perform at a heightened ability every time no matter the situation. Broken bones and concussions are just mild occurrences to you. You must get the win not just for yourself, but for your family, your fellow teammates who are there with you taking each blow and set back with dignity and gumption. Yes, Chess can be a dangerous sport.
Family is a name given to those people who share with you the calamities, adversities and good fortune of daily life. We are, by some given glory, placed together to face what lies ahead. Through our experiences, we become something more than strangers. On the field, athletes share the struggles and victories associated with playing a sport. This, in turn, makes them a family. Hollywood has triumphed over and over again with their renditions of films, inspired by some real life story. The underdog, for example, is a common theme used many times. How many times have you cried watching a sappy film based on some sports figure or team? Someone pass the tissues.
We show family pride by our actions on and off the court. We show it by celebrating in the end zone, by jumping in the air after someone scores, by greeting someone with a high five, by wearing a uniform, by sending a personalized card or note with our family name, monogram, or crest. We do all this because… we are a family…cue the music!
Writing a message on a whimsical birthday card for a co-worker is a task that we have all come to despise. It’s quick, it’s impersonal and it cut’s drastic time off of playing solitaire on the computer. Let’s all admit it and it’s not because we dislike our fellow cubicle inhabitant, no. We have all been in this situation many times before. Most of us are quick to write something down. Happy Birthday! The two most common words written for this defined moment are the most appropriate.
We spend roughly 2000 hours at the workplace each year. This means that our co-workers, the people we spend practicing air guitar and playing office poker with, are the second group of people we see the most. The first being our families and sometimes not all. Though we have shared all this time together in the workplace, the best message we can come up for a birthday wish is a brief and impersonal scribble.
Given that we all like the people we work with, the extra effort should be well worth it, right? It’s understandable, most birthday cards aren’t big enough and so we are resorted to a minimal amount of space each. Some of us do our best to acknowledge the people in our lives everyday. We celebrate, we cry and drink together in honor of those we love and appreciate. Let’s get in touch with our creative side and transform the workplace. This post is not just a realization, but a reminder for all of us who are quick to jot something down. Honor your fellow co-worker with a personalized birthday card.
Order your tickets and pack your bags, you are finally going on vacation. It doesn’t matter where you’re going. Hey, you always believed that it’s about the ride not about the destination. Be prepared to see the world. This trip is well deserved.
The axioms of a good traveler are many and different. We all have our rituals and weird habits before we go on an adventure. Some people are sleep travelers. These folks carry a pillow everywhere they go. Some are light packers. Carry-on baggage is the only option. Some are dedicated tourists. You must have seen them in the airport. They are the ones who carry fanny packs and cameras everywhere they go. Now, most of us, it is fair to say are a combination of all three. We can’t help it our multiple personalities come out when we hit the road.
Our inclination to take pictures and share our findings with the people in our lives is a human reaction that is innate in all of us. Take a picture next to the Eiffel Tower or the biggest ball of yarn in the world. It’s a brief moment of utter delight caught in a digital still. Can a picture describe the emotions we feel surfing the waters of Hawaii or skiing the mountains of Colorado? Many times a picture is not enough. Yes, that smile may say you’re happy, but it doesn’t describe the total experience.
The tech gods have given us the option to document our lives by a snap of a button. For that, we owe them some gratitude. Take all the clicks you want. It is your right as a modern day Peter Parker. But in between pictures, take pen to paper and capture what a digital camera cannot convey. Our words keep us connected. For the traveler, it is the rush of the written word personalized inside a fold over note. You are just as much of a linguist as a natural born photographer. Remember what it was like walking through the city of Paris? You have taken enough pictures for today. Here’s a fold over note – start writing – you have a lot to say.
It’s a coin toss for some of us. Have you found your dream job yet? If you are lucky, you will answer this question without hesitation. Are you so bold as to say – Yes? We work our butts off to pay the bills, student loans and filling the gas tank every week. These are the pressures of life, some would say, resorted to a dollar sign. We also work to give our families the life they deserve. Ah, yes, the bigger picture always puts things back into perspective.
The sad reality is, is that most Americans dislike their job. (Not I, of course.) There are many factors that will determine this realization. Eventually though, after much soul searching, we stare change in its face. This transition process much like everything else requires special attention. Whether you are joining the work force again or changing professions, the interview is what gets you the job. You have the experience and years under your belt, so now what?
The do’s and don’ts of the job interview are many. Show up on time. Wear the appropriate attire. Bathe (I can’t stress this enough) and send a thank you note. The latter can be the definitive token that could land you the job and not smelling like a camping trip can also help. Keep the following in mind. Unless you tanked the interview to the point of security escorting you out of the building, you are still in the running. How could this be? This is when you need to take a risk.
A thank you note shows that you are reacting to the moment. It says that you are personable. It says that you care and in many customer service positions, this is prevalent to communicate.
A well-crafted note separates you from the rest. The key to this proven approach is to keep it personal and relevant to the occasion. Brag about your qualifications a little bit more. Correct a mistake. Did you forget to say something in the interview that you think is beneficial? Say it! A thank you note for the job seeker is not just a thank you note anymore. It is another opportunity to land the job of your dreams.
It was inevitable. We have become a technology obsessed culture. The conspirator mongers have predicted this very day. They also foretold the return of the eight track player, but we won’t hold that against them. This new generation of smartphone owners is like a plague of zombies. And we are the scarred survivors trapped inside an abandoned country house, trying to fend ourselves with anything that’s not nailed down. Is this a fair analogy? If zombie lore is correct, if one bite or scratch will turn a human being into a walking corpse, then we are all goners. Have you been bitten? Do you have a smartphone? It’s a terrifying scene, a bunch of people roaming around aimlessly in a (digital) world, looking for their next (signal) meal.
Technology isn’t a bad thing. Granted, people today prefer to communicate with each other by text then by any other form. Sadly this is more evident when they find themselves in the same room. OMG!
This post is not about the negative effects of using and incorporating technology in our daily lives. I’ve been bitten just like the rest of you. This post is a request. Let’s stop texting or online chatting for just one day and resort to an old alternative: a hand written personalized note. The cognitive benefits of putting pen to paper are many. When we write something down the different parts of our brain begin to work together. When this happens we increase our memory. We become more focused. We reduce stress and blood pressure. Yes, my fellow text junkies, this form of expressive writing can only improve our minds, bodies and our relationships.
Truth is we value the meaning of a handwritten personalized note more than any text or email message. Ironically, it’s an emotional gesture that we have grown to forget, but still await with amazement. The request is clear. Now, it’s just a matter of putting the DVR on pause, your computer in sleep mode and your smartphone on standby.
This may be a ridiculous topic for most. You are probably asking yourself, why would my beloved pet – be it a dog, cat or chimpanzee – need personalized stationery? Does something like that even exist? Well, folks, it does. Just about any personalized card or note can be used to show your favorite critter how much you care about them. Does this topic still sound ridiculous? I refuse to answer this question without my lawyer present.
Let’s rewrite the title of this post and call it: Personalized Stationery for Pet Owners. That’s much better! If you have a picture of your pooch hanging somewhere inside your home – read on! If you own more than three cats, then you probably live in the house kids try to avoid coming home from school. If you have ever spoken to your pet in a high pitched voice before, please, stop. Pet owners can do and act in odd ways. It’s a curse put upon them for keeping their four legged friends in their purse.
Your pet has become a part of your family. (This may be a sad or wonderful thing depending on how you look at it.) Some would argue that animals are people too. Even the most rational human beings can be caught up in this frenzy and who can blame them? We are guilty of doing more than half of the things mentioned in this post and we are coming up with new ways to embarrass ourselves each day.
Give a fellow pet owner a treat like a personalized note because it’s their celebration too. You’re not the only one who has ever thrown a surprise party for someone who drinks out of the toilet. This someone being your dog and not your best friend who gets a bit curious when he has a few drinks. Pet trends like birthday parties are becoming more acceptable. Who are we to judge? It’s bad enough we claim our cherished pet goldfish as a dependent.
If only there was a place where shoppers can congregate peacefully and waiting lines cease to exist. A wondrous place, filled with products and people like you and me who can shop for whatever our heart desires without leaving the privacy of our own home. Does that universe exist? It’s a fancy notion, an impossible dream, and one worthy of eyestrain or carpal tunnel syndrome. Our tech forefathers have accomplished a great feat. They have brought to life a monstrous creature with the capabilities of world domination. It’s the price we pay for being consumers in a digital world. It’s at this point when lightening strikes in the dark and distant background. Cue in the thunder, a sinister laugh and now start the opening credits.
Picture it – a film about a compulsive shopper, fighting crime one purchase at a time all in the name of disgruntled customers everywhere. (Hollywood, I am still waiting for my call.) The life of the average consumer is monotonous compared to the typical action star. It’s the same dreary storyline every time. The hero or shopper is a self-righteous do-gooder who is always ready to join in on a hot pursuit or discount thus saving the damsel from utter death or credit card fraud. I guess we can successfully make some comparisons. Most of us will just have to settle living a mundane existence between aisles five and seven. Cue the sad music please!
Our only fight as consumers is the exchange of mediocre gifts. The Hawaiian t-shirt, the snow globe, the bottle of cheap perfume are all items met with disdain. We have the nerve to call them gifts, but in reality they are dishrags or paperweights. The pleasure of using wrapping paper, stylish bows or gift enclosures indicates the traditional gesture of a mysterious item, a special token given to someone by impulse or careful planning. You will be surprised soon enough. What’s considered to be a gift nowadays? Any item or thought that’s kept a secret until the beneficiary discovers what it is. Shopping online has leveled the playing field. Today, it is just a matter of participating in this crazy process.
Those unforgettable and embarrassing moments will always come back to haunt us, won’t they? Whatever the inside joke may be, whether it’s a funny nickname or photograph, we are the first to put it behind us. Growing up is never an easy thing. We were all bullied. We were all teased. We were all pressured into doing things that would get us into trouble in some way or another. Our childhood was a rite of passage and no matter how we lived it, one thing is clear, we are all the result of some weird science experiment.
We all have regrets. The lucky ones, those who paid attention in class and were not the target of a runaway dodge ball during recess, can count them on one hand. Others are not so fortunate. Will we ever go back in our DeLorean and change things for the better? Probably not, but it’s always fun to reminisce. Today we have the opportunity to go back for a visit. What would you say to your childhood bully, to your high school crush, or to the prom queen? Here are 10 funny phrases for your custom printed fold over note.
- Who needs a DeLorean? I drive a Mercedes now.
- We both knew that one day it would come to this…you’re fired!
- I am the owner of Facebook. What do you do?
- That crown was made out of plastic and now half of your face is too.
- Who is laughing now? Waiter!
- My name is Bill Gates. Remember me?
- We would’ve been so happy together sailing around the world on my yacht. If only you would’ve said – yes – when I asked you out.
- Hello, I invented the IPhone.
- Who knew that standing on my head all those times would make me into a gold medal winner?
- I’ll send you a personalized note from space.
Is there a point to this insane approach? Yes. You threw one touchdown pass in high school – get over it. Ouch! With that said, it is fun to reminisce, but only for a second. We’re doomed, if we continue to live in the past, this is certain. What’s most important is how we live in the present with the people in our lives today.
