The Modern Thank You Note

I still write thank you notes and love receiving them, but it’s frustrating that the host doesn’t hear from me until my note arrives days later in the mail. Delivering a note by hand the following day is not always feasible. Graydon Carter, former Vanity Fair editor in chief, was frustrated by the same snail mail delay and agrees that an email is not the modern manners solution. So he and his wife Anna founded Electragram, “a purveyor of stylish digital cards and stationery that seek to combine the feeling of an old-fashioned handwritten note with the speed and convenience of an email.”  FT has a wonderful story on the Carters at their Connecticut home.

  • This is a clever idea and looks stylish! I’m hooked on lovely papers, pens, monograms, calligraphy, stamps . . . I won’t be giving it up any time soon. I’m often later with my notes than I intend, but everyone is so thrilled to get something in the mailbox, it seems to make up for any delays. More and more, I’m writing notes to people without a particular reason – saying hello, offering encouragement. Like gift-giving, it feels as rewarding to write as it is to receive.
