How do you say, Thank You?

I am sitting here printing shipping labels for pots that I am shipping out.
We had a few orders in this kiln and that means some packing and shipping.
A few years back Mark made a simple card that we can print off the computer.
It simply says :
We would like to thank you for Shopping with us at Whynot Pottery.
We hope that you will enjoy the pottery that you purchased for years to come.
Please visit us again when you are in Whynot.
Mark and Meredith.

We change the card to use when customers buy a gift so that it can be dropped into the box and the receiver will  know who the gift is from and where it was made.
The check list for the shipping box is:
Pottery, insurance form, business card, and thank you card.
So simple, yet ,I hope- a touch folks remember.

Two tiles from the last electric kiln.

Girrrrllll! Those tiles are fantastic! I do think adding a personal note means a lot to people and why more and more folks will support artists in this impersonal internet world. Human contact is becoming less and less common it seems.

I love the tiles -- and the giraffe is so wonderful. You really get a sense of movement - that he's stretching up . . .
And the personal note is such a nice touch - and good business too!
