Interactive birthday cards can play in CD-ROM drives, DVD drives and CD audio devices. These birthday cards are characterized by colorful graphics, sound and animation. They carry special messages with a personal touch. Some of the personalized e-cards feature cards with names, date, and pre-printed poems.
Today there are many card styles to choose from, catering for almost every age range, gender and taste. Many people want the card to say how much they love them or to wish them good luck in the coming year.
Though greeting cards have been around for something like six centuries, the custom of giving birthday cards is probably more recent. The concept of adhering to a calendar birthday developed alongside the finalization of the western calendar itself and while gifts were given on birthdays, the concept of a birthday card came about only in the last century. With the advent of printing, in the USA, a poor German migrant started a printing-business in Boston and he began to turn out Christmas cards. Later, the card giving custom began to include special events in the lives of people, including birthdays.
Today there are many different birthday cards to choose from. As well as the traditional birthday card, there are funny cards, modern cards, floral cards and a big trend towards cards relating to specific relatives. There is now also a big switch to handmade cards and lots of birthday card manufactures are now using recycled paper to make the cards.
You can choose to send traditional paper greeting cards or beautiful e-cards that are fast gaining popularity. Or you can create your own photo greeting cards. You can personalize the card, include a personal message and have the card delivered by mail. Many of the greeting card stores do not charge delivery fee.
Sentimental: For the special person in your life, romantic partner or someone who is emotionally very close to you, you can send a card that mirrors your sentiments and feelings. These are available in a variety of designs, with personalized touches, photo-inserts and also music.
