We've made it very easy to add QR codes to every postcard mailed to a specific mailing list.
In a mailing list in thanks.io, you can set a 'Tracking URL' for it.
This will automatically add a QR code to the address-side of your postcard! You can also set yourself to be notified via email whenever a card is scanned by someone.

When previewing your orders in the dashboard, you will now see a proper high resolution PDF that accurately represents what we printed.
Our Send Mail Wizard has been updated to make it a bit easier to use. 'Manually Add Addresses' is now the default option when selecting recipients.
Notecards are now offered by thanks.io. The are bi-folded cards in an envelope with a real stamp.
On your settings page you may set a default handwriting color to add some flair to your handwritten messages!
You can now use '$', ',' (commas) and '/' in custom variables for handwritten messages in order to accommodate dollar figures and dates.
Fixed an issue where 'Quick Send' of a mailing list would not include the 'back of the card' design if one was present in settings.
You can now generate postcard designs via a URL! This allows you to generate custom postcards 'on-the-fly' programmatically. It's perfect for agencies that need to generate various cards for various purposes as needed.

Birthday year is no longer required to add birthdays to mailing lists (only MM/DD). Custom backgrounds can now be specified via Zapier.
You can now upload a design to the address/handwriting side of postcards!
The background template can be accessed on your settings page.
