3.Sarah B. owl coloring book style thank you card with crayons, $10 for 10 at www.sarahbstationery.com
Like a Mad Libs gone coloring book. I would have a hard time not coloring these before mailing them, thus robbing the recipient of a good evening in. If you are said recipient, I apologize in advance.

4. Give Studio letterpress grid cotton thank you card, $16 for six at Felt & Wire, www.feltandwireshop.com
So graphic and simple and linear, this is the post-modern, un-fussy thank you card.

5. OrangeBeautiful letterpress "you're welcome" cards, $14 for 6 at Supermarket, www.supermarkethq.com
I guess there once was a world where people sent thank you cards and then you replied with a 'you're welcome' card. This is obviously pre-Top Model marathons. Yet it appears these redundant wonders still exist. Why not twist it around into a mildly sarcastic note with sincere thoughts of thanks inside. Or go one extra snarky step and send it legitimately listing why the recipient is lucky to be graced with your friendship. (extra points if you get a thank you card back!)
Perfect to send to: hipsters or other people you hate
