How beautiful that you were born! – Tips for writing birthday cards

When do I write a birthday card?

Even if your friend does not celebrate his big day until the weekend or even weeks later, you should congratulate him on the date of his actual birthday. After all, the birthday magic comes from the fact that this one is honoured on a special day and is remembered for the birthday child.

Even if you forget a birthday, you shouldn’t give up a congratulationout out of shame. There are countless ways to humorously pack late birthday congratulations. Either create a birthday card that addresses your delay, or refer to it in your text. For example, you could draw a snail on a map and integrate your subsequent birthday congratulations into a speech bubble above it.

What do I write on my birthday card?

The more personal your birthday wishes are in the formulation as well as in the design, the more you can express how much you value the birthday child. To consider individual desires that are not on any card, it is important to take enough time. Find out what connects you and show what character traits your card recipient sits with and value it the most. You can also discuss shared experiences to evoke beautiful memories through your self-designed birthday card.

Beyond that, consider what you really want for your birthday child. Maybe in his old year not everything went perfectly or it is facing an important decision. So you can show your friend that you stand behind him and want him strength for the future. Overall, it is important to find your own words for the birthday child and write concrete things on the birthday card instead of remaining general and nothing to say.

Another way to put a smile on the recipient’s face is to think about a personal poem or rhyme. In combination with philosophical quotations, you are guaranteed to create an unforgettable unique piece.

What are the advantages of sending your birthday cards via Postando?

There are a variety of ways to congratulate your loved ones on your birthday: either you personally hand over the birthday congratulations, which is not always possible, you can reach for the phone or convey your congratulations over the Internet. Or you can congratulate the birthday child with personal words in the form of a self-designed birthday card. But what are the advantages of a birthday card and how does the Postando Postcards app help you send you your individual birthday greeting?

Send all birthday cards at once

With the Postando Postcards app, you can write all birthday cards that are due this year in one go and then automatically send them to the desired date by means of an individually set shipping date. Thus, you will no longer forget a birthday and can be sure that the birthday card will reach its addressee on time, even if it has to overcome great distances and continents.

Make birthday congratulations individual

The various design options in our Postando Postcards app help you to ensure that your dear words do not simply fall into oblivion, but endure for many years and are always at your loved ones’ side. Customize your congratulatory card by selecting and uploading your favorite photo. You can even choose between two different formats. If you can’t choose just one picture, you can even create a collage. In this way, you can creatively present the most beautiful moments that you experienced together in the past year of life. If you want to add a text, you can choose the font and color to match the photos. Your personal and self-designed birthday card definitely stands out from other congratulations and causes your recipient to pick it up and admire it at any time.

Attach personal video message

To make the birthday child feel like you’re with him despite your distance, you can even attach a personal video. After designing the front of the map, you can upload a video in a second step. In order for the recipient to be able to retrieve it, a QR code is printed on the postcard. Who is not happy about a self-sung birthday present of his friends or family?
