Birthday Sayings for Cards

Sep 12, 2008
Far from being uniform, birthday cards can be found in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and types, and birthday cards can be customized depending upon the emotional impact you want your recipient to feel. Buying cheap cards is a concern many people have, and if your budget is constrictive, simply try a place such as Walmart (or other similar discount store) If your budget allows for something flashier, specialty stores such as Hallmark are a good alternative.

Another place to buy your printed birthday cards is the internet, as online stores allow you several options to buy, including bulk or single cards. E-cards are another alternative, as they allow you to send cards electronically through your recipient's email and many of these allow you to add a personalized message. You can also send musical and animated versions; while some of these services are free, many of them require registration however.

Another favorite birthday cards are hand made cards which can be found at flea markets and craft shops. Another place to buy them is wholesale clubs like Sam's Club or Costco. Some stay away from handmade cards because they think they will be too expensive, but cards can be purchased at a decent rate in many places. Usually coming boxed these cards retail for a low of ten to a high of thirty dollars.

Birthday cards come in all shapes and sizes which mean you can find examples related to every child's age, from one to 18. You can also find cards related to every landmark age, such as age twenty-one, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, and eighty. I imagine they also have them for ages ninety and one-hundred, but I haven't seen them; it may be you need to special order these, as few people reach that old age in today's society.

Many people give messages with the theme of 'over the hill,' and many more enjoy the idea of themed cards. My father was given a card which said, "you're a national treasure. Older men have an especially difficult time dealing with aging, and their entire day can be made better by the right humorous 'over the hill card.

Other birthday cards capitalize upon a younger market; some through sexy cover models, alcohol or crude gestures, and others through cards aimed at a younger population. If the child in your life enjoys Disney, a Disney themed card - which include Aladdin, Disney Princesses, Cars, and assorted other movie favorites - may be the answer. Some of these cards are pop-ups, and some of are musical; Disney cards are always a lot of fun to open, read, and play with again and again. Of course, the best way to learn more about birthday cards is to visit the card aisle at any department store, discount store, or specialty store such as Hallmark.
