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.
Some of the types of birthday cards available are:
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.
When people first started sending birthday cards, they would never have imaged how far the cards would evolve or what the subject matter would diversify out to. The first birthday cards that were sent never mentioned or displayed the age of the recipient.
Humorous: These are among the most popular birthday invitation cards that are sent. They provide a light-hearted approach to the event. Age-related, personality-centered or puns on words and themes are all part of the funny card category. Witty quotes, silly jokes, pop-ups and even risque and naughty jokes can be part of the humorous card design.
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.
