Is Late Ever too Late?

Is it ever too late to send a thank you card?

Shawna – Director of Customer Service
Absolutely not. A late thank you is better than no thank you at all. This goes for any occasion. Normally thank you notes should be sent within 3 months of the event or gift receipt. If you go beyond this still send the note, but don’t get into specifics about why or how they ended up late. Simply apologize for your tardiness and go on with the art of thanking.

Brandy – Customer Service Representative
If you miss someone’s wedding just put on the card, “Happy 1 Month Wedding Anniversary”. Or if you miss someone’s birthday, put on the card “Happy 32nd and 2 week Birthday”. That way they know you acknowledged the day and it will be a gift that they weren’t expecting. With weddings, especially, they will receive gifts for long after their actual day. So don’t worry about how late you are. I really don’t think people put much too much thought into it.
