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.
