Writing "Handwritten" Thank You Cards Just Got Easier -- Thankster Prints, Stamps and Sends Them

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - Thankster, the first online thank you store, today announces the beta launch of its website, Thankster.com. The site gives people and businesses a simple and friendly way to send classic thank-you notes and personalized greetings to friends, clients, wedding guests or anyone else in need of gratitude. The service uses proprietary technology to simulate real handwriting that is indistinguishable from the real thing, unlike the handwriting fonts seen on popular direct mail pieces.

"Our digital lifestyles give us an easy way to shoot a quick thank you, but it's one without permanence," said Paul Geller, CEO. "We have plenty of thank yous from Emily Post, and cherished cards kept in a shoebox in the closet, but I'm not sure what record the millennials will leave behind. Thankster offers people the best way to send a heartfelt, tangible thank you in the easiest, simplest way -- you don't even need to worry about buying stamps, we have that covered."

Thankster makes it easy for the digital generation to connect with actual "handwritten" cards:

  • Send the Real Thing: In this technology-driven age, where e-mailed thank yous have become the standard, Thankster offers users the personal touch of a handwritten card, with the ease of a few clicks of the mouse and keystrokes.
  • Limitless Gratitude: There is no limit to the number of cards you can send -- personalize one or upload an entire Excel spreadsheet to thank a large number of people.
  • Fast Service: Brides and grooms can easily upload their invitation lists and quickly personalize wedding day thank yous, all before they even leave for their honeymoon.
  • Make it Personal: Moms can help their kids personalize each of their thank yous after birthday parties or big events like Bar/Bat Mitzvahs or Confirmations.
  • Expert Guidance: Don't know what to say? With the click of a button, find templates for any occasion -- whether it's a simple thank you or one that requires specific language for that crazy, hand-knit, chartreuse sweater from Grandma.

In an age where the Internet is a large part of daily life, Thankster now creates a comfortable online experience while combining the traditional, mailed thank-you notes we value and save. The site offers an easy, personal experience from start to finish -- from the design selection of hundreds of cards to the creation of the message. Thankster even allows customers to use their own handwriting for that extra personal touch.

Thanking people can take less time than going to a card shop. Sign up on Thankster.com, select your card, personalize notes with your message and font, and voilà! They will soon be on the way. The site's ever expanding themes include Weddings, Holidays, Graduations, Showers, Religious, Kids, and more. Thankster takes your order, prints it, stamps it and sends it in the mail.
