Our story

Passing a paper card around was always a hassle. Then 2020 happened and you couldn’t even do that.

One morning in March 2020 our founder, Val, was thinking about this seed of an idea he'd had for remote group cards a couple of years ago. He decided that if there ever was a time to do it, it was now.

He quickly assembled a small, awesome team to put it together. They all believed in and loved the idea and worked quickly to build it.

The first version of Thankbox went live 2 months later in May. The vision of it has not changed since the first time Val wrote it down - a simple, fun way to create a group card and collect for a gift online. Simplicity and fun continue to be at the center of everything we do.

Our sustainability pledge

We care deeply about the planet, and we want to do our bit to preserve it for future generations. The more people use us, the more we can do, so each month:

We plant a tree for every 10 Thankboxes sold, via Treepoints.
To date we've planted a woodland the size of 3 Trafalgar Squares in London!

Val has been tinkering on his own projects since he learned how to code. On Thankbox he does a bit of everything - working on new features, answering customer emails and constantly thinking about how to make it even more awesome. He enjoys practicing martial arts - currently Tang Soo Do - and coming up with fun games to play with his daughter.
