Free Fill-In-the-Blank Thank-You Cards

Thanks to HP for sponsoring this post. Click here to see more of the discussion.

One thing I always remember about the holidays is my parents making me write thank-you notes afterward.  As much as I balked at it back then, I’m glad it was made such a focus because it’s now a habit!  I think it’s important for my child to learn to write thank-you notes for each of her gifts at every holiday.

Since she’s so young I use the fill-in-the-blank versions.  This year I formatted a printable thank-you note that is 4×6 sized to fit onto my mobile printer’s photo paper.  She loves sending things to the printer from the iPad so I know this will make her much more excited about working on her thank-you notes.


For the 4×6 version click the link below and download the jpeg file, ready to print straight from your mobile device:

Not sure how to print from a mobile device? Here are some easy steps as shown from an iPad:


  • Save Image to Camera Roll 1 of 7

    Step 1: Click on the link to open the 4x6 image in your Internet browser.  Then press down on your screen until the Save Image/Copy bubble appears.  Select "Save Image" and the image will be stored in  your camera roll (photos).

  • Open Camera Roll 2 of 7

    Step 2: Open the Camera Roll/Photos App and click the share/send button.

  • Select Image 3 of 7

    Step 3: Select the image you want to print.

  • Printer Icon 4 of 7

    Step 4: Click the printer icon to set up printing.

  • Select Your Printer 5 of 7

    Step 5: Click to select the printer (printer must be enabled for printing from a mobile device).

  • Mobile Printer 6 of 7

    Step 6: The printer should now be selected.  Click "Print." (I've set up the HP ENVY 5530 Mobile Print Series printer.)

    Make sure you have 4x6 photo paper or pre-cut cardstock loaded!

  • Printed Image 7 of 7

    Now your little one can go to the camera roll and print as many thank-you notes as he/she wants!


You can also download this PDF version onto your computer and print onto regular cardstock paper.  It will just require some cutting.
