Statistics show that birthday cards cover 62 percent of the greeting card industry. It is estimated that over 1.2 billion birthday cards are sent out every year. A company alone produces more than half a billion birthday cards each year, and there are thousands of different greeting card companies, big and small. Approximately there are about 5 billion people celebrating their birthdays in the United States of America alone, which estimate that there are about 700,000 birthdays on the average occurring everyday. And studies show that an American receives about eight birthday cards for each birthday. Calculating the numbers, it means that approximately 5.6 million birthday cards are sent out each day just in the United States of America. August is recorded as the month when Americans celebrate the most birthdays, attributing to 9.07 percent or about 21 million, followed by July with 8.80 percent. Studies show that about 70 percent of the people would write additional messages into the card to give it a personalized touch. About one-fourth of the birthday cards sent are given to friends, and about two-thirds are mailed.
Each interactive birthday card is a mini video and is deeply relished by the receiver. Interactive birthday cards come in the form of interesting game cards as well. The names of the sender and receiver appear throughout the card. You can play the card for around 10 - 15 minutes and derive maximum pleasure.
Birthday cards have remained the best means to send loving birthday wishes. An interactive birthday card is the latest trend promoted by leading birthday card manufacturing companies. Interaction between the sender and recipient is possible through interactive birthday cards. Interactive birthday e-cards are a powerful means to transmit your feelings to the receiver.
Based on your relationship with the receiver, you can send the most appropriate birthday invitation card. They can be purchased from your local book-shop or supermarket. Franchises of the big greeting card companies also have their own specialized stores which stock the latest products. Birthday cards can be posted, hand-delivered or sent over the Internet.
The birthday card now falls into the category of a greeting card. The greeting card can be traced all the way back to the ancient Chinese. They would send out goodwill wish cards during the New Year. The Chinese are not the only ones who thought to do this; in Europe in the 1400s, people also exchanged homemade greeting cards which in time became a tradition.
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.
