Baby Showers

Pre- printed thank you

Yep, just got one.  From a First Communion party, thanking me for my gift and my presence.  Not even signatures, just pre-printed.  Envelope was handwritten, though. 

 Pretty sure by that age, I had to at least sign my own thank you notes.  We gave $150, I think. 

 

ETA: what kinda gets me more than anything...if you did pre-printed, why did it take  a month and a half for it to go out?

Re: Pre- printed thank you

  • You gave 150 and got a thoughtless thank you card? I'd be ticked!!!!
  • That's crazy! My SIL had my 7yo niece write thank you's for her BDay this year. Before that my SIL wrote the thank you and my niece would sign her name. This started as soon as she could hold a crayon!

  • Boo.

    We did pre-printed TYs for DD's christening, BUT I also wrote a handwritten note on the backside of the TY. 

    Sadly this is becoming the rule and not the exception.

    Points for sending them though, I guess.

  • Yeah- we got this once for a baby gift.  It was their birth announcement and it was a pre-printed "Thanks for your love and support".

    AND for the fact they didn't open the gifts at the shower (which at the time I was fine with. It was a couples shower and definitley more of a party than a shower) - I was really put off by this thank you.

    This might be flammable, but I *really* *hate* Christmas cards that are like this.   It's like sending out a "look at my awesome family picture!!!" instead of sending any real well wishes to anyone.  At least sign your name in pen or something.  Make it look like you care a little.

    I agree - I hate those, too!  Plus, then, what the hell do I do with your stupid family picture? If it is a close family member, OK, I save it with my pictures and stuff.  But I get them from friends who aren't even that close. I feel guilty throwing away someone's picture, but what the hell do I want with it?

  • That is really tacky. Them being pre printed is more rude than them being so late.

  • I received pre-printed thank you cards from the same person for both the baby shower and communion.  The baby shower thank you arrived after the baby was born and doubled as a birth announcement.  I found it to be quite annoying that we could all invest so much time in celebrating this family and yet they couldn't be bothered to personalize a single thank you.

  • I received a pre-printed thank you for a wedding 11 months after the event. To make things worse, the only reason (I think) it was even sent, was to get presents for a baby shower, since she is now pregnant. It makes me not want to buy a present. 
  • They couldn't even have them sign their own name??? Wow!  They should more than have to be signing their name on thank you cards by that age.

  • As soon as I get a pre-printed thank you card, they never get another gift from us again!

    No excuse!

  • I think that is totally tacky and my biggest pet peeve. We have been to a few events, weddings, baby showers, baptisms , and birthday parties where the person did a preprinted thank you. I think it is so rude. People take the te to come and spend money on you or our child that they may not have. The least you can do is take a few moments of your time to write a thank you. I would rather it be 2 months later handwritten then a week later preprinted.

  • We received one from a birthday party at DS1's pre-K class. I wasn't even aware this much tacky was an option!

    Yup. I always hand write just a sentence or two. "Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!"

     

    I don't judge pre-printed Christmas cards as much, since they're unnecessary anyway, but I do kind of wonder what the point is if you're not writing something personal.
