There are are certain indisputable truths such as the earth revolves around the sun and guys don't like to write thank you notes. Did you know that 94% of all cards and stationary are purchased by women? The problem could be the card selection.
Have you ever tried to purchase a thank you card appropriate for a guy to write on? I (Bart) refuse to write a thank you note on stationary with flowers, a poem, or a pastel painting on the front cover. I don't like cards with "THANK YOU" in big, bright, bold letters on the front. I shy away from balls or geometric designs. I refuse to buy a card with a weird little photo or a cutesy saying on the back cover. In addition, there is the size issue. The card and writing space must be small. Guys use the three line rule when writing a thank you note. Basically everything can be expressed in three lines. Let's face it, guys write small or we print. We don't use emoticons.....like a smiley face sideways when writing (these all take up a lot of space on the card). We need small cards.

Yes, these notes need to be in small cards!! After searching for the right kind of card, I decided to make my own cards. As a hobby I like to sketch. A few years ago I started sketching the boots of our family members. I decided that these would be perfect to turn into cards. So with a little help from a local printing shop, I designed my own line of cowboy boot cards.
