So I mentioned that I went looking for free printable birthday cards for adults and was disappointed in the selection. However, when I found these classy and cool birthday cards to print at home, I knew I was in luck. Simple and understated, while also elegant, these cards make me happy when I look at them. How about you. These are absolutely free to print on your home printer, no strings attached, no e-mail required, no supplies to buy, no nothing. I promise, I checked! Print out a slew of them and stock up, keep them with the wrapping paper. Quit paying Hallmark $5 per card when you don’t have to. Pick a birthday card design for free and spend your money on the birthday gift and things that matter.
There are many options for printing great-looking birthday party invitations, but the most economical way is to print on a premium 16-point gloss paper.  You'll also want to stick with a standard size such as 5-inch by 7-inch to keep your birthday party invitation printing costs cheap; however, when it comes to colors you can go with full color since this option really costs little more than black and white yet has much more bang for the buck. Beyond those options, you would be wise to get matching envelopes (also cheap) and have a hardcopy proof sent to your doorstep before you actually print the entire run. The last thing you want is for a mistake to go unnoticed until your invitations are printed, when it will be too late or too costly to make changes. A hardcopy proof does cost a few dollars, but it's cheap insurance that the rest of the run will go off without a hitch. Pass your proof around to friends, family members and co-workers so you can get more than just one set of eyes looking it over for errors.
Writing tip: Ages 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95 and 100 are traditionally considered milestones. Cards specific to these birthdays will feature the age number prominently in their design, but you can make any card a milestone card (or any birthday a milestone birthday) by writing that shiny new age number somewhere in your personal message.
There are several different ways you can make a birthday card, but that doesn't mean you need to spend a lot of time on something complicated. Making a simple homemade birthday card is quick and easy. Take just a few minutes to let your creative juices flow and whip up the perfect birthday card just in time for the occasion. Making the card yourself allows you the freedom to create a more personal card than you would likely find at the store. Make a simple and lovely birthday card in just a few minutes.
Among the great symbols of life and hope in the world, the sea remains one of the most powerful. Ever constant but always changing, powerful, vast, and beautiful, the ocean is a suitable image to mentally conjure when one imagines what best symbolizes the fixed-but-fluid universe. The stars are another great symbol of life and the universe, so it’s comforting that there are stars in the sea as well… starfish. All is connected. Maybe two best friends can be imagined as a pair of starfish on a beach, under a sunset sky, facing the starlit night together. We make wishes on stars of all kinds and hope they come true for our loved ones on their birthdays.

One of the best ways to make your friend happy on his/her birthday is to be by his/her side on this special occasion. Also, you might bake them a homemade cake to indicate your true devotion to your mutual friendship. But whether or not you bake, buy, or borrow, it’s the well-wishes that really count. And the many happy returns to hope for your best friend.
If you can’t attend the birthday celebration of your friend then you can send him/her a special birthday wish to let him/her know that you have not forgotten this day. I’ll miss you on your birthday. I wish we could be together to laugh and love and celebrate the day. Even though we can’t, I hope you know that my heart overflows with love for you. And today I’ll celebrate you and the wonderful moment that you came into my life — for on that day, my greatest dream was born. Perfect.

Birthday cards can be especially useful for those companies working through a hard time. Greeting cards are an inexpensive and sincere form of gratitude that can boost morale around the office.

On your birthday, I want to give you something special to let you know how much I care for you. How often do we find ourselves seeking the perfect gift to give to those we love? We wish we lived in a world where money meant nothing, where we could procure any gift we wished for our friends and loved ones without thought of price. Except, where our best friends are concerned we DO live in a world where money means nothing… because the worth of a gift lies in the emotion of the giver and the quality of the recipient. In consideration of that, even the sweetest rose might doubt its worth when presented to the sweetest of best friends.
When someone near and dear to your heart turns another year older, you’ll want to do everything you can to make their day extra memorable.
