Frequently Asked Questions

We provide more answers on our support page, so check that too if you can't find what you are looking for here.

How far in advance will I be reminded about the upcoming birthday?

It's your choice. The default reminder comes a week before the date but you can also set it up for a month before or the day before. 

Are there any limits to the number of people who can add a birthday greeting?

No! A Thankbox is a digital, online card so there are no restrictions on how many messages there are or contributions to the gift collection.

Plus each message can be as long or as short as any contributor wants. No limit to character or personality.

Can I upload my own video and photo?

Absolutely. The more personal and relevant the more sunshine spread around. Add videos to messages with a Premium Thankbox. Organisers can also add a custom background image and icon.

How easy is it to customise and manage my Thankbox?

Thankbox is designed from a customer viewpoint. So making changes, upgrading and managing your virtual card 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. Choose whether to show it as a board or a card. Upgrading to Premium allows more customisation.  Video in messages; raised gift collection ceiling; handcrafted backgrounds and a host of user uploaded customisations.
  • Change the Thankbox send date.
  • Decide who sees the collected 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.

Because it’s digital, contributors to a Thankbox card can
  • Change their message
  • Change any GIF, photo or video
  • Change their choice of font
  • Add to collection contributions

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

Can I organise a collection for a birthday gift with a Thankbox?


Any Thankbox virtual birthday card has an optional collection included as standard. When you create the Thankbox click the Add a gift card collection button and you’re all set.

Everyone invited to leave a birthday message can chip in to the collection pot at the same time - saving everyone time and hassle.

Not all online group card services provide an integrated collection for a birthday gift. And online collection pot services don't include a group or virtual greeting card.
