When you send a digital birthday card, you’re delivering 100% love straight to someone’s inbox.  The sweet, significant gesture is a simple way to make someone feel special wherever they are.

Evite’s digital birthday cards are eco-friendly, delivered on time, and have plenty of add-ons to make your birthday card the best ever. Oh, and did we mention cards (and their add-ons) are free?

Read on for tips to make your birthday card stand out from the crowd:

1. Create a unique card with customizable fonts, envelopes, and stamps

Evite offers hundreds of greeting cards for a variety of occasions and themes. When you select a card, you’ll have the ability to adjust the envelope colors, liner patterns, and choose a stamp. You’ll also have the option to upload a custom photo stamp if you’d like. All of the combinations of stamps, liners, and envelope options and designed to look great together — so have fun choosing whatever you like the most.

2. Get creative with video

We’ve added the option for you to upload videos to your card — no editing skills required. If you’re on your phone or using our app, you can record or upload a 60-second video. Get creative! Our customers have sent heartfelt messages, edited videos, montages, and even footage from childhood! Adding a video to your card adds an extra-special personal touch.

3. Include photos or longer messages with photo & text inserts

Bring a smile to their face by adding candid photos or pictures from group dinners, travel, or other adventures using photo insert cards

If you’re sending a card from a group, our text insert cards come in handy for adding everyone’s birthday greetings. Simply ask everyone to email you or add their message to a shared document, then copy/paste the greetings into your text insert card. Throughout the pandemic, our team at Evite HQ has been using text inserts this way for our group cards — not just for birthdays, but baby showers and farewells too. Not sure what to write? We’ve got a handy list of birthday greeting inspiration for you.

4. Schedule in advance so it arrives on time

Once you’ve completed your masterpiece and are ready to send, simply schedule your card to arrive (or, send instantly). Evite’s greeting cards can be scheduled up to 30 days in advance, so you can easily plan ahead.

Bonus Tip: Follow up with a gift

If a super-decked-out birthday card simply isn’t enough for the person you’re honoring, consider sending a gift! Evite has two gifting options to choose from:

  • Send an eGift card: This fantastic contactless option gives you the ability to gift anyone in a minute and have it arrive just in time to make their day. Choose from hundreds of popular retailers including Sephora, H&M, and Hello Fresh and schedule in advance or send instantly, just like our greeting cards! 
  • Send a physical gift: If physical gifts are more your thing, you can shop popular presents on Amazon and one will be delivered to their doorstep. You can also consider sending a bonus surprise, like party horns, to make it even more festive.
