Thank you notes and social stationery

Traditionally each person in a household would have his or her own social stationery. As writing notes becomes more of a special occasion than a common occurence, the traditional standards of etiquette are changing. For those who choose to maintain traditional stationery etiquette, women should use a folded note and a man should use a card. However, we are seeing more combined names or monograms on each of the different types of stationery.
