Users could choose their own handwriting and send anything from a boutique bottle of gin, vegan chocolate through to luxury skincare. Dr Kate identified a gap in the market when she was standing in a post office waiting to buy a stamp and thought there had to be a better way. At the time there wasn’t, so she built it.

In 2019 Dr Kate sold Thankly after winning multiple Australian business awards for innovation.
