It feels good to thank and be thanked. Which got us wondering:

What would happen if we all did a lot more of it? 

What if we could show others more appreciation for all the big and little things they do in a fun and easy-to-send digital card?

With that, thankr was born.

The Thank You Notes You Should STOP WRITING TODAY!

The Thank You Notes You Should STOP WRITING TODAY!

The number one objection that I hear to downloading Thankr is that the final thank you notes are not personal enough–and I totally understand. What’s funny is that people tend to view Thankr as a replacement for every type of card. If that’s what it ends up being for you, that’s awesome!


But make no mistake, we don’t expect that everyone will want to relinquish their love for a classic handwritten note. That being said, check out some of the cards that you currently spend time writing that you totally shouldn’t.


The one after going to a get together

C’mon these are your closest friends, do you really need to take the time to individually write to each of them for something as small as a dinner party?


Let’s face the facts–the last thing you want to be doing hungover, the morning after a fun night, is hand-writing thank you notes in your underwear at your kitchen table. Can you imagine anything worse?


Don’t worry, Thankr’s got you covered! Visit the Thankr app to easily send a personalized note to your friends to get the task done quickly, but to also let them know you care about their friendship- it’s a win-win!


The one after hosting a get together

Why is it up to you to write a different note to each of your friends thanking them for coming to eat dinner with you? (Not to mention, are stamps getting more expensive by the day?)


But how can you avoid the task without seeming rude or ungrateful? Thanking on the Thankr app takes seconds, so you can thank all your friends for coming over for dinner without the stress or the expense, before your spouse finishes the dishes (wink).


The one to your distant relative who sends you socks every year

This is without a doubt my least favorite on the list.


Everyone has that relative that you’ve hardly ever met, but for some reason goes out of their way to send you something on your birthday every year, right? It’s a nice gesture and all, but sometimes the last thing you want to do is get out the stationary and make conversation with your second aunt twice removed.


Download the Thankr app to make sending thank you notes something to look forward to instead of something to dread!!


The one after your child’s birthday party

Who even came up with the idea that a child should be subjected to writing a personalized note to every one of their relatives? The task seems impossible and simply doesn’t fit into your busy day, right?


Simply use Thankr to record your child saying thank you and press send! You’ll be done thanking faster than you can write this chore in your agenda book!


The one thanking me for helping you

No need to formally thank me, I’ll just be waiting for your Thankr!
