Special birthday greeting cards

3 August 2015 671 views No Comment

Have you got a loved one’s birthday coming up? Stuck for ideas of how to get them a really special card to remember? Mainstream card companies just can’t seem to cut it when it comes to creating cards which really give off a genuine message of care and well wishing. That’s why, instead, you might want to opt for more personalised cards. Of course, to find cards which fit your needs, you might need to do some additional searching online and put in some extra effort in to looking for the perfect birthday greeting which will really stick in your friend’s mind. However, that extra effort is guaranteed to be worth it. Plus, we’ve decided to help you out with a few ideas to start you out!

For a start, think about your friend’s interests, whether it be their favourite TV show or type of music. Do they maybe have a favourite celebrity or a specific quote which they really like? Can you think of some musical lyrics which really speak to them, or which sum up your friendship? If the band, film or show is particularly popular, then there’s a good chance you will be able to find cards which feature them online. However, if you can’t then it is usually possible to make your own quite easily, either on a simple online photo editing site before uploading the image yourself on to a personalised card site, which will also usually allow you to add text as well as pictures.

In addition to cards which focus on interests like celebrities, perhaps your friend would appreciate a card which fits in to some of their activities. For example, if they are into dancing, football or any other kind of fun activity then you can reflect this passion on their birthday card, which they are sure to appreciate! There’s even cards themed around activities such as bingo, an idea brought to you by pgbingo.com. Take a look online for a full idea of the kind of fun activity themed cards you can find.

If you want to be really personal, then you could do a card themed around you or your friend, or which focusses on your friendship together! Do this with funny pictures, quotes and in-jokes which your friend will enjoy and which will remind them of the good times they’ve had in your friendship.

So far much of our focus has been on cards which you can order on the internet. However, special handmade cards can be really touching and special. For example, you could find well designed, well-crafted handmade cards, which you can buy online or from small boutiques. These cards often have a lot of effort put into them and are very intricately made, which really helps show your friend you care – and you’re helping to support a small business. If you’re crafty, then you could have a bash at making one of these yourself – although if you tend to make a mess of these things then your friend might appreciate your efforts and find them funny. After all – it’s the thought that counts!

Hopefully this will have given you some ideas for fun, original and personal greetings cards for your friends.
