SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gratitude often comes at unexpected times and in unexpected places. Whether it's from a good experience with a coffee barista, teacher, garbage collector, or co-worker― 69 percent of people find it fun to send an unexpected thank you, according to a survey of 1,356 adult Americans conducted by personalized stationery service, Expressionery®. To encourage more instances of spontaneous appreciation, Expressionery has added a new line of Instant Gratitude cards to its growing portfolio—and they're available today.
Of small stature, (the same size as a 3"x2" business card) Expressionery's Instant Gratitude cards still pack a mighty punch with a variety of bright, playful and classic designs. A set of 10 folded cards starts at $6.00 and can be personalized with up to 15 characters and a variety of fonts.
"We all know how great it feels to receive a written thank you note, yet many of us only send those notes after birthdays, weddings and other gift-giving occasions. We designed Expressionery Instant Gratitude cards to make it easier to say thanks with real impact, whether it's for giving you a perfect haircut, changing the printer ink in the office or relieving you of your carpool shift," says Sam Faillace, vice president of marketing. "We made each packet of Instant Gratitude cards small enough to fit in a pocket or purse so they can be available and ready to go anywhere a 'thank you' happens."
Expressionery's Chief Wordsmith Brett Nicol shares a few examples of how to make the most out of the new Instant Gratitude cards:
- DO NOT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM – From your purse, wallet, gym bag, diaper bag, luggage, or briefcase ― Expressionery's Instant Gratitude cards are small enough to take with you "on the go" and pull out whenever a moment moves you.
- NO ADDRESS, NO LAST NAME? NO PROBLEM! – Whether it is the barista who makes your coffee every morning or the door man who greets you with a smile each day, Expressionery's Instant Gratitude cards help you show appreciation without the need for a litany of personal contact information.
- IT'S THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS – Expressing gratitude does not have to be a lengthy or detail-filled note. A simple "thanks" or "I love you" lets others know you are thinking about them. Slide an Expressionery Instant Gratitude card with a simple expression of encouragement into your youngsters' lunchboxes and see them come home with smiles.
