Further to my THANK YOU Note post.. I ALWAYS handwrite Thank You cards to all my bride and groom clients.
I use our SIGNATURE collection THANK YOU Cards in pink or black.
Never underestimate the power of ‘thank you’ notes. We always stress and believe in handwritten correspondence at v:space studio.
It is SO nice opening the mail box to find something other than a bill… before I get into depth (later posts..) some words from Colin Cowie, Karen’s fave entertaining expert:
“When you receive a gift from someone, Colin says the proper protocol is to send a written thank you note within 48 hours. “[That’s] 10 points,” he says. “[A phone call is] 9 out of 10. An e-mail, 8 out of 10. A fax, 7 out of 10. The most important thing is just to acknowledge it. … It’s never too late—you can do it in two weeks’ time as long as you remember.” In fact, Colin says the first thing he does every morning is write last night’s thank you card on his personal stationery. You’ll also find Colin’s stationery at his favorite chocolatier, liquor store and florist. That way, when he sends someone a box of chocolate, a bottle of wine or a bouquet of roses, he can dictate a note on his stationery instead of a generic gift card. “I think those details are important,” he says.”

Karen’s fave Colin Cowie books – CHIC & WEDDING CHIC, definite go-to books for chic + modern glam. We are now following Colin on twitter @ColinAWCowie
Last year (2007) v:space studio participated in gifting with PR Firm Distinctive Assets from Los Angeles, CA. Among the list of high profile female celebrities that received our products were Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Holly Robinson Pete, Kelly Ripa and Felicity Huffman. We were THRILLED when we received correspondence directly from Felicity Huffman and our fave Kelly Ripa! Felicity actually sent her handwritten Thank You note on our Signature Thank You Cards. Handwritten etiquette still exists!!
