Thankbox online group cards are all about making life better. Better for organisers - easy and slick admin features take the hassle out of creating and managing group cards and collections. Way better for contributors - no faffing around with accounts or passwords, no word limits, no restrictions on media. And better too for the recipient - knowing everyone has contributed is a very positive big warm hug type thing.

How we’re improving online group cards

By listening to customers. It’s really that straightforward. If you have a great dialogue with your customers you get instant, first-hand, actionable feedback.

"I work for a UK-wide organisation with teams spread across multiple locations. Thankbox offers a digital replacement for 'passing the card round the office'. We are now using more and more so a bundle or volume purchase option would be great."

Perfect example. Thankbox Packs - great value bundles of Classic Thankboxes - were on the development board. Customer prompting moved them up the priority list. Their input also led to really useful features - like being able to share among the team rather than have one central organiser.

In the same vein, here's a summary of the latest feature updates customers want. All ensuring Thankbox stays a favourite with online group card users - whether in the workplace or at home.

A Thankbox chock full of love, personality and good vibes is guaranteed to make someone feel special. That's gone up a notch with these new personalisation options. So why wait?

BYOB - Bring your own background

“I think more font types or backgrounds should be available. Although the current are fine, it'd be even more fun for a more diverse feature.”

Check. We know tastes and times change. We’re continually adding gorgeous new Thankbox backgrounds, and customers can now upload their own background image. A great way to personalise online cards even more. We see custom backgrounds being used a lot with Thankbox online cards celebrating engagements, birthdays, and anniversaries. Or in the workplace for an online retirement or leaving card.

In true Thankbox style, adding your custom background is super easy. And nothing is set in stone - backgrounds, icons, fonts can all be changed right up until it’s time to send. Oh, a real neat thing - the font colour will change to complement the background image colour. Less hassle see 🙂

Here's how to add a custom background

And here are the latest backgrounds from the Thankbox design team. Helping to add context and reinforce the sentiment of the card - whether work related or home life focused.

Make your Thankbox truly iconic. Add your own icon

In keeping with giving customers ever more personalisation options it’s now easy for customers to add their own icon. The little picture that represents the type of Thankbox. A picture of the bride to be perhaps, or how about the first picture the HR team had of the person now retiring?

Yet another small improvement that means a lot to some customers. All making life that little bit better.

Can’t sign the online card in time? No problem

Some customers have found people are unable to add a message before it’s sent. In the case of public group cards some discover the Thankbox link too late. No problem - now the creator of the Thankbox has the option to leave it open for latecomers up to 30 days after it’s been sent.

Small improvements make a big difference

“This service was easy to use and made a really big positive impact for the folx who we sent it to.”

The thousands and thousands of Thankbox users help brighten people’s days. Their feedback also helps make small improvements to the Thankbox experience. It’s these that can make a big difference to users and Thankbox recipients.

And that directly helps online group cards get better and better. Making life better for all who use them.
