There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.
When you sit down with a blank greeting card in front of you, don’t be surprised if you can’t seem to put the pen to paper.

Sure, the birthday honoree knows just how much you love and appreciate him or her but, it doesn’t hurt to remind them on their day.

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. You'd be surprised what a small gesture can do in the midst of much larger business obstacles. We've written about how celebrating office birthdays can lead to increased productivity.
I don't know if it's just the Avery software of what but these do not print the way that you see them on screen. It's incredibly frustrating when something is centered and there should be no problem with it printing centered on both the front and back but the cards end up overlapping and you can't print doubled sided because they just don't print right. I never have this type of problem when I print regular index cards or word/pdf documents so I'm going with its an Avery software glitch but as long as you print one-sided they're OK.
This is one of the best birthday wishes for friend sentiments that you can give to your best friend. We all want our loved ones to experience a life of joy, and we treasure the joyful moments we can share together. This is especially true of our close friends, and our best friends certainly top that list. When we wish them all the best things in life, the joy, the smiles, the blessings that make life worth living, we are expressing the purest form of love for them.
When your friend is feeling down, be sure to comfort him/her. Sometimes it’s not enough to simply wish them a happy birthday or send along your best wishes, sometimes more is required. Like letting them know that you are always on their side, and will always be in their corner no matter how rough life might get. That is the true mark of real friendship: not in birthday presents, but in birthday “presence.”

Write "Happy Birthday!" Once you have selected your paper and your card format, it's time to get started on creating your simple birthday card. You can use a thick marker or a combination of different colors to write, "Happy Birthday!" on the front of your card. If you prefer not to hand write it, you can also print the words using a word processor and cut them out for your card, or use the printed piece of paper as your template.
A friend is someone who will always stay with you through the good times and the bad times, so be sure to spend your time with him/her on his/her birthday. More than that, a best friend is someone whose actions and support have proved they deserve all the best things that life can give, and anything their heart desires! We wish our best friends wonderful, celebratory birthdays full of the very best kind of pleasant surprises.

In good humor and all in fun, we praise our best friend by ironically honoring ourselves. But self-effacement is the real name of the game here. We honor our loved ones by elevating them even above ourselves in the scheme of our lives, and by wishing them all the joy they deserve on the anniversary of their birth.  Thus do we say “You’re a good friend to me and I wish we could always be together for the rest of our lives.”
