(Use a gift tracker app, spreadsheet, or notepad to remember.) The biggest problem, Monson says, is “organization fatigue.” Once the wedding's over, newlyweds lack the time and energy for another chore. Punkpost handwrites thank-you notes for $6 a card, including mailing (first one free). Customers pick from different handwriting styles, but Monson says the “goal is never to mimic someone's handwriting. Our goal is to help people make good on their good intentions.” The Punkpost app lets senders create text for each card, or they can cut and paste the same message for all. A company called Bond has even developed robotic technology that mimics handwriting, right down to the inconsistencies that make letters look different every time you write them. Customers can choose from 15 handwriting styles, or Bond can digitize handwriting to create a personal style for anyone's notes. Emails.�How about emailed thank-yous?
