Thank you slips?

(John Stead) #1

Hi Guys

I am just attempting to design a ‘Thank You’ slip that fits in with my Folksy shop look and feel. It occurred to me that despite the usual ‘Thank you’ message I’m not quite sure what else to include.

Would it be possible for you guys to upload an image of your usual ‘Thank you’ slips and anything else that you might send out with items purchased from you.

I’m thinking about including elements such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest address/ username along with an invite to write a review? Also I am thinking about sending one of my Greeting Cards with blank envelope (That they can use) as a thank you too.

Any other suggestions?

Looking forward to hearing/ seeing what everyone else does

Many thanks

Hi John - I usually enclose a letter saying thanks and referring to the item bought so that the person knows it’s not a standard item. But the more I think about it, a well worded standardised Thank you leaflet would be great as it would save time and probably look more professional, so I am looking forward to seeing some examples too!

My preference (for my biz) would I think be a postcard sized paper, with an image of one of my pictures on the reverse and a message on the front, together with Folksy, Twitter, website and Facebook addresses.

Hi Textiletreasures

I like your postcard idea. I think are able to do similar Postcards but with different images on each card

Gosh a different image on each would be even better - I will look them up.

The last time I had postcards printed by moo I think they were quite expensive, around 50p each for the biggest 100 card run inc postage. Since my mini paintings only sell for around £4 each that’s far too much for me to pay. I always include a handwritten note on A6 sized paper with my poppy painting printed in the background and printed contact details on the bottom. I run these off on my own printer.

Printers vary enormously in cost, and cost is always my first thought too. But did you know local prisons often outsource printing facilities, at a very reasonable price. A friend told me about this and it was about half the price of the commercial printers!!

I didn’t know that Heidi - well worth looking into!

I have a Thank you message, along with my logo and website address etc, which I print onto a sticker. I then use the sticker to close the tissue paper that I use to wrap my items.

I use stickers! I’m sticker mad!!!..I have a sticker on the back of each of my kits with my Logo and something along the lines of ’ Thank you for your purchase! Don’t forget full back up is given on and you can come and see me on Facebook where you’ll find out what I’m up to and lots of stitchy tips!’…Then my contact details…On the outside of my packets I have a Logo sticker with Ebay, Etsy, Folksy, Pinterest &Facebook logos running down the side.

Of course my logo is Black & White on purpose! It is cheap to print and looks good on all platforms!x

I usually include a moo print mini card thanking customers for their purchases and with my shop address and social media contacts on it. However recently I have completely redesigned this in favour of a circular business card.
