Everyone appreciates a thoughtful thank you note. "Thank you" is a common expression of gratitude. It often refers to a thank you letter, a letter written to express appreciation. The best thank you note is a personal one, one that is hand written. Taking the time to take pen in hand and compose a heartfelt sentiment always spotlights a richer sincerity on behalf of the writer. Going an extra step with a distinctive writing ink color is a welcome accent.
There are various ways to compose proper business and appreciative personal thank you notes. Here are a few good sample beginnings listed to get you started.
