Frequently Asked Questions

We have more on our support page, so check that too if you can't find your answer here.

How easy is it to customise and manage my Thankbox?

Thankbox is designed from a customer viewpoint. So making changes, upgrading and managing a Thankbox is super easy - anytime right up to the point of sending. 

From your dashboard as the organiser you can:
  • Customise your Thankbox - backgrounds, titles, icons. Upgrading to Premium allows more customisation.  Video in messages; raised collection pot ceiling; handcrafted backgrounds and a host of user uploaded customisations.
  • Change the Thankbox send date.
  • Decide who sees the collection pot amount.
  • Create reminders. To either set up a Thankbox and for specific annual events.
  • See what all those fab messages look like as the recipient.
  • Copy and share the Thankbox sharing link.

Contributors to a Thankbox can:
  • Change their message
  • Change any GIF, photo or video (if Premium)
  • Change their choice of font
  • Add to collection contributions

And throughout the life of a Thankbox everyone is kept informed of progress all along.

Is there a limit to the number of messages in a Thankbox?


Shortest answer ever! There is also no limit to the number of words contributors can write in their messages. It means everyone who wants to contribute to a Thankbox can. They can express themselves without restriction. 

And that means there’s no limit to the feelgood factor sent to the recipient of a Thankbox. A great example is the public Thankbox to wish Sir David Attenborough a happy 96th birthday.

Is my Thankbox secure and private?


Only people with the sharing link can access a Thankbox and only to leave a message. Thankbox links are not visible to search engines.

Thankbox servers and software are secure and compliant with best practice security protocols. Online payment systems are compliant with regulatory standards.

Thankbox never shares any customer data collected with any external organisation. We've partnered with the best payment processing service to ensure maximum security of payment card details

How do online group greeting cards work?

We’ve all experienced the hassle and faff of trying to organise a group card. Getting everyone to sign it and contribute to the collection and ensure it’s delivered on time.

Online group cards take all that away and have many advantages over a traditional card. See the benefits of sending an online group card.

All online group cards share one thing.  Whether you call them virtual greeting cards, online cards, or group greeting cards - they are all digital. This ensures organising, managing and sending is quick, easy and inclusive.

With a Thankbox the process takes seconds. 

  1. Create - to get started in a jiffy decide who to send to and why. You have the choice to pay upfront or when you send. If you include a gift collection you can pay from the collection amount too.
  2. Share - your Thankbox has a unique link you share to invite everyone you want to contribute messages. Share via email, messaging apps, social media (if appropriate) - any way you like.
  3. Customise - and manage your Thankbox. Change backgrounds, fonts or upgrade to Premium for the full customisation experience. Right up to before you send. 
  4. Send - once you’re happy everyone has added their messages, schedule a send date or send right away.

And that’s it. The Thankbox app takes care of everything. Informing organisers, recipients, and contributors of progress.

We estimate you get at least 97% of your productive time back with an online group card compared to the traditional card. Imagine - if you’re pressed for time people from all over the world can sign a Thankbox in minutes.

What to say in an online group card?

With a Thankbox online card there’s no limit to how many people can add messages or how long their messages are. That may present a challenge for many to find the right words to match the occasion. Here are a few tips to ensure you say what you want, how you want.

Firstly consider the occasion. This will guide your thoughts. There are so many occasions where a Thankbox group card fits the bill. 
  • Is it a leaving card for a colleague - perhaps going on maternity leave or retiring.
  • A card congratulating someone on a great achievement?
  • Or one of many of life’s milestone events - birthdays, weddings, anniversaries? 

Whatever the occasion you want to express your thoughts appropriately.

With a Thankbox online card there’s no limit to how many people can add messages or how long their messages are. That may present a challenge for many to find the right words to match the occasion. Here are a few tips to ensure you say what you want, how you want.

Consider the occasion. This will guide your thoughts. There are so many occasions where a Thankbox group card fits the bill. Is it a leaving card for a colleague? Someone off for maternity leave? A retirement? Congratulating someone on a great achievement? Or one of many of life’s milestone events - birthdays, weddings, anniversaries? Whatever the occasion you want to express your thoughts.

Like a traditional group card, your message will feature among many others. It’s important you reflect on your relationship with the person that's right for the occasion. For example, for a group leaving card it’s always a good idea to consider:

  • How long the person has been a co-worker
  • Recalling achievements from a project team or group you were both part of 
  • Remembering milestone events in their time with the organisation
  • The card is a memento of someone’s working life, so never include anything controversial. They will have their Thankbox forever as a fond reminder of past times.
  • Express yourself. A huge difference between virtual and paper cards is space. You don’t have to cram a message into a limited space with an online card. This allows you to express yourself in a way never before possible. So:
  • Make full use of all the features. Your Thankbox allows you to add photos, GIFs and videos. Either your own or one selected from the extensive Thankbox library.
  • Write as you would as if you were still working together.

Hopefully that gives guidance about what makes a successful message in an online group greeting card - whatever the occasion. Our blog has more resources that go deeper into specific occasions.

What are the benefits of sending a group ecard?

Group cards have some fundamental advantages over traditional paper cards. They are:

  1. 100% inclusive. An internet connection is all that's needed to create, contribute or receive a Thankbox. Everyone, anywhere in the world is able to join in. That makes the final card so much more meaningful and valued.
  2. Fast - it takes no time to create a Thankbox and share the unique link with the group. Everybody can sign instantly. And there is no couriering a card between offices or international locations.
  3. Efficient - there is no physical effort required. Adding a message and chipping in to the collection pot (if selected) happens at once. No going to buy a card, walking around the office, sending it to family or friends to complete. A virtual card saves a huge amount of time. Time that can be better spent.
  4. Unrestricted - there is no limit to the number of messages or their length with a Thankbox. No cramming tiny writing into a few remaining spaces on a two page paper card. No unsightly paper insert if space runs out. If you want to say it, you can with a Thankbox. No limits. The Sir David Attenborough birthday public Thankbox is a great example. Thousands of people signed it and shared their appreciation.
  5. Easy - in one click contributors can start to express themselves with  their own personal messages.
  6. Fun & creative  - a Thankbox lets you add photos, GIFs and videos, change fonts and add emojis. It's creativity unleashed. It’s more fun for the recipient too - more laughs and smiles.
  7. Long-lasting - a Thankbox is forever. The unique link will always be live for the recipient. And they can download as a PDF if they wish.
  8. Great value for money - one payment opens up a whole new world of possibilities and creativity. No sending fees, no extra costs. For regular Thankbox users, Thankbox Packs are even better value.
  9. Comprehensive - with a Thankbox an optional gift collection is standard. If you need a collection pot, you've got one.
  10. Sustainable - a Thankbox is good for the planet. No emissions. 100% renewable electricity. No offices, delivery or commute miles. No paper production (energy, water, chemical disposal). And we plant trees. One for every 10 Thankboxes sold🌲.

Traditional paper cards still have a role. In celebrating, congratulating and appreciating individuals they are great for one-to-one communication. Where a private expression of thoughts and feelings is necessary.

Is a collection for a gift included with my Thankbox?

Yes it is.

Every Thankbox has a gift collection option included as standard. 

It's optional because for some occasions it may not be appropriate. For others it absolutely is. For example a farewell card for a coworker will always need a collection. It makes no sense to go elsewhere for the collection. 

  • When you create your Thankbox all you do is click the ‘Add a gift card collection’ button and you’re all set. 
  • Decide too if you want to pay for the Thankbox from the collection pot.
  • Everyone invited to leave a message can add to the collection pot at the same time. Saves everyone time and hassle
  • Not all online group card services provide a collection service. 
  • The majority of online cash collection services don't include a group or virtual greeting card.

Can I pay for my Thankbox from the collection pot?

100% you can!

It's a great way to split the cost of sending the Thankbox between all the contributors. Just pick the Pay from your gift collection balance option when checking out.
