The Importance of a Thank You Card

25 Aug

aug-thankYouCards-001Sometimes a little thank you is all it takes to put a smile on someone’s face.  While some people are more likely to save handwriting real thank you cards for the bigger occasions such as for a wedding shower present or a wedding gift, it’s important to consider that writing notes to family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and more, even for the smaller things, means a great deal to those who receive them.

Maybe a friend brought you dinner, a neighbor walked your dog for you, you were interviewed for a job, or your cousin remembered your birthday.  Maybe a co-worker took care of an issue for you or your boss gave you a raise.  These and other kind acts are the perfect reason to send a handwritten thank you note.

aug-thankYouCards-002Saying thank you with a personalized thank you note card makes a memorable statement.  Remember to use a nice thank you card to write your note on, be genuine in your note and express how important their help has been to you.  And, use nice handwriting and a good quality pen to write your note, and remember to sign your name!  You don’t have to write a lot but be genuine in your sentiments.

There are a variety of thank you card styles perfect for a wedding thank you note, a bridal shower thank you notes, graduation thank you cards, sympathy thank you cards and everyday general notes of thanks. A nice box of basic thank you cards is always something handy to have on hand.

You will certainly make someone’s day when they receive an attractive note card on their mailbox or on their desk.  Sending a thank you card is a sweet gesture at any time! A spontaneous or unexpected thank you note can often mean a lot.  After all, who doesn’t like being appreciated?

Best wishes,


The History of Tervis Tumblers

12 May

This week we wanted to introduce you to some fascinating history of Tervis Tumbler, a unique line of high quality drinkware.  If you’ve never tried a Tervis cup or waterbottle you have a treat in store if you decide to try one.may-tervis

Tervis Tumblers don’t break, they can be washed in the dishwasher, they keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, they are guaranteed for life and, as I’m sure you can tell, they are very unique. They can even be personalized to your specifications!

Back in 1946, in Detroit, engineers Frank Cotter and G. Howlett Davis hit on something big. They harnessed the natural insulating powers of air to create the first permanently sealed double-walled tumbler.  To this day, this original concept continues to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, not to mention being virtually indestructible.  The two men combined the last three letters of each of their last names and dubbed their new drink ware brand “Tervis”.

Over future years, Cotter and Davis worked to refine and improve their designs.  The original tall, cylindrical tumbler evolved into additional sizes and products.  Tervis tumbler’s name is a leader in innovation.  The Donelly family purchased the Tervis product rights in the 1950’s and incorporated the Tervis Tumbler Company in 1967.

Today there is a wide selection of shapes, sizes, and hundreds of customizable designs, emblems and accessory combinations.  They are all made in the USA, in North Venice, Florida, where more than 400 people are employed through the family owned & operated business.

Enjoy your own Tervis tumbler, mug or water bottle!  They are great to use and make a wonderful gift for birthdays, housewarming, teacher gifts and more.  They make an excellent graduation gift, especially the water bottles with Collegiate Tervis featuring college logos and personalization!  This summer, enjoy your own Tervis Tumbler, perfect for the season as they do not break.

Best wishes,


Happy Beverage Day!

6 May

Today is National Beverage Day.  I feel like there is pretty much a “holiday” for almost everything!  But in honor of Beverage Day, I thought I’d share our personalized Tervis tumblers and water bottles.  With the end of school approaching, these truly make wonderful teacher and graduation presents.  tervis

What are Personalized Tervis Tumblers?  They are virtually indestructible.  They won’t crack, melt, shatter, or chip. They are even dishwasher, and microwave-safe. They are built to keep cold drinks cool.  They also keep warm drinks warm, take a cautionary sip before you drink.  They may very well be the world’s first smart cup. Don’t take it as a dare or anything, but if they do somehow break, we’ll replace it, guaranteed.

Check out our wide selection to design your own memorable and practical gift any graduate or teacher would love.
