Tuesday Tip: Bargain Thank You Note Cards

Mortgage and Lending with First Heritage Mortgage NMLS #: 938761

I posted yesterday on my favorite closing gift to buy for my clients and I thought I should let you in on my go-to place for thank you cards.

I try to write 5-10 thank you cards per day, whether it’s to a realtor for a recent lunch meeting or to a client who has just closed. I used to spend a lot of money on fancy thank you cards that I would go through in no time at all. That was put to a stop when I found this great pack of note cards (and when my husband started monitoring my business spending more closely!). 


I haven’t been able to find them anywhere else, so when I need to stock up I head to Target (in stores only) and get this pack of 200 Carlton Cards and envelopes for a whopping $12.99—that’s only $0.06 a card!  They are great, very affordable, and I love having a variety of colors to choose from. If you are the type that likes to write thank you cards, I highly recommend these.      

I’m contemplating buying a stamp with my name/initials to customize the card in the next couple of weeks.  I think it will add a nice, personalized touch to the notes. 

Do you guys have any bargain finds that have helped you in your business?

Hi Whitney... welcome to the rain, and thank for your comment... I love Ben Carson...

I have been training agents for 30 plus years and always encourage them to send out thank you cards... I love that fact that you do and I will pass on your target tip... At Wittney I provide beautiful thank you cards for all our agents at no cost. All they have to do is write a note and put on the stamp...

Have a great day... Beth

Wayne & Jean-You are very welcome! I hope you enjoy them!

Beth-There's just something special about a hand written note that doesn't go unnoticed. That is wonderful that you provide cards for your agents!

What a great idea Whitney! I don't think it is the card itself that is as important as the thought of sending it that gets remembered.

Wow, 5 cards per day!

Seems you found a good deal for cards, but postage is still quite pricey.
