Are the signs for 'Thank You' and 'You're Welcome' the same? Because the videos for both show the same sign.

Different signs.

I'm still just learning, but I'm sure that the sign for "You're welcome" is different than "Thank you". I've seen welcome as a welcoming motion (sweep the hand in from the side), and I'm not sure if it's proper, but I've also seen the W handshape, where you touch the index finger of the W handshape to your chin, and make the welcoming motion. Again, I'm not an expert, actually I'm still a beginner, but that's what I've seen.

Saying 'Thank You' Back

My understanding is that you are saying "thank you" back to the other person. The welcome that you are referring to is when you are welcoming someone into your home (or something similar). If you look at the variation of this sign, there is one with a 'W' that is used, but I most often see people saying thank you back.

Using the hand-sweep "welcoming motion" is actually the verb meaning "to welcome" (to a meeting, your home, etc). I have seen it used to mean "you're welcome", but conceptually it is incorrect. There are many ways to indicate the concept: right thumb up and out, outward shaking of the f-hands, palms out(no problem) or the thank-you sign are all more conceptually correct.

from my experiences, "your welcome" is not used in sign language like it is used in the hearing community ("thank you, your welcome") In the deaf community, you will see someone say thank you, and the other person will often times respond with the sign thank you again.

you're welcome

I have a deaf friend who says you're welcome is totally different from either of these two.
