"If there was one piece of advice I could give to fresh out of college professionals: Don't ever underestimate the handwritten THANK YOU note. You would not believe the business you can close and the jobs you can land with that simple and unexpected long forgotten touch."
This is very true and, if anything, it's truer in this electronic age. And here's a different example: Some years ago I wrote a job recommendation for a student who had been on the Frederick Douglass Moot Court team I coached, back when I was BLSA adviser. I gave him a really strong recommendation, because he was a really good student. About a year later, I got a letter from a named partner at the firm I'd recommended him to, telling me what a great hire he'd been and thanking me for recommending him. I still remember that.
At pretty. simple. cards. ®, delivering the personal touch is important to us. We created these cards out of need. We had problems finding cards that represented who we are. We wanted cards that were simple, direct and coming from us. Not whimsical. Not flowery. Not playful.
As much as we love our moms, they can keep their stationery. These are the kinds of cards we've tried to create. As our way of giving back, we're also proud supporters of the Midwest Food Bank. We believe in paying it forward and hope you'll join us with your generosity.
