Birthday cards are cards sent to celebrate a person's birthday. Traditionally, they
are printed on card, placed in an envelope, and then posted by mail or hand-delivered
to the recipient.
Birthday cards can be bought in shops or hand-made (a great personal touch). Additionally,
if you want to make your own cards, and perhaps aren't a great artist, you can use your
computer to prepare and print birthday cards. You can use standard publishing/graphics
programs for this - or you can get software applications specifically designed for making
cards. The advantage of the latter, is since the program is specifically intended for making
greeting cards, such programs usually allow you to produce great results with much less time
and effort - and may even include things like a ready-to-use selection of
help you get the job done quickly.
Nowadays electronic greeting cards, known as "e-greetings", "eGreetings", "e-cards", or "eCards"
are also increasingly popular. These are cards delivered in electronic form, and typically
sent via email. These eCards can be generated using software, or on a website, and a link to a web-page
containing the customized eCard is sent via email, however sometimes the card can be attached directly
to an email (though some people may have trouble receiving in this case because of anti-spam filters),
and other options include using Facebook and other social media sites to deliver the card.
As already alluded to, a cool thing about electronic greeting cards, is that they usually can be
customized for the recipient, for example, you can customize the card with the person's name
and a special message chosen for them. Many eCards websites also allow you to add music, animation, and
even your own recorded message to your eCards.
Finally, one last thing to mention - if you are thinking about creating handmade cards, while of course
you are free to use your own imagination, there are many websites offering greeting card templates or "sketches",
which can give you ideas, inspiration, or a simply a short-cut, to producing really high-quality professional-looking
In summary, there are tons of great options for sending birthday greetings. Whichever one you choose,
your friends and family will be pleased to receive a birthday message from you!
