writing thank you notes

So I am writing thank you notes. And my cursive looks... cr@ppy!


But, I'm old school and I believe they should be hand written and in cursive.


Would you think it was tacky to get a Thank you note which is hand printed rather than written in cursive?


I need to figure this out because I just wasted 3. I had them custom printed and I figured, I just wasted $10!

if you don't like your handwriting in cursive go with the regular hand written...I think its appreciated either way and no one will notice which type of writing you did they'll just think its sweet you hand wrote it!

I agree, I think the hand-written part is all that matters. If you hate how your cursive looks then just print. It'll be easier for people to read anyway.


Good luck!

I totally have the same problem.  But like the gals said, no one will notice if it's cursive or not.  They just want to read about how you loved it and how you're going to use the gift!  Have fun!

As a teacher, I have noticed that schools have moved away from cursive anyway.  In the days of computers, people are more used to seeing something printed.

I love cursive. I cannot print for anything! I think if you do not feel good about your handwriting then print them. I believe it is better to have them hand written print or cursive rather than done with a computer. It is more personal this way.

It doesn't have to be cursive you know! Just knowing you took the time to write it is great, a sloppy handwritten note is 10x better than a typed one!

well then, there you go!  If you all say  it's ok, then I feel ok about it!


hearing what Pink says about schools moving away from it, does make me sad. Someone said to me the other day that kids don't even know how anymore


I might practice a bit and do a few in cursive, just for the tradition. But I'll most like switch for most of them...

Hand writing the response is what matters. Print or cursive is up to you. I love cursive, but wasting the thank you cards will not be good.
