How to Print Out Birthday Cards

There are many reasons why you might want to print out birthday cards. First, you can save yourself a trip to the store. Second, you are given an opportunity to send a more personalized greeting. When you print out birthday cards, you can say whatever you want… you are not limited by another person’s words. In turn, the recipient of your card gains more appreciation for your message. The only problem is figuring out how to print out birthday cards without spending an arm on a leg on software.

There are many reasons why you might want to print out birthday cards. First, you can save yourself a trip to the store. Second, you are given an opportunity to send a more personalized greeting. When you print out birthday cards, you can say whatever you want… you are not limited by another person’s words. In turn, the recipient of your card gains more appreciation for your message. The only problem is figuring out how to print out birthday cards without spending an arm on a leg on software.

Fortunately, the Internet is full of networks where you can make your own printable birthday cards for free.

Got Free Cards and Greetings Island can get you started. Both of them offer a user-friendly online birthday card maker. All you have to do is type in what you want and then move the text to your desired location. Unfortunately, neither site offers an online birthday card maker capable of creating or
manipulating images. Everything is already made for you.

For some people, this might stifle their creativity. For others, this type of setup is more convenient, though you do need to make sure you’re printing the right card for your recipient. As an example, say you want to print out birthday cards for boys. A standard “Happy Birthday,” message with cake and ice cream might not be exciting enough for a young child. However, Got Free Cards has sections where you can print out birthday cards for boys, girls or really anyone else. You just have to browse through each category.

Another option could involve working from a template. Microsoft Office has dozens of greeting card templates available from their website. Most of them do have pictures, but because the cards are being designed in Word, you can delete them and replace them with another image. So, if you wanted to print out birthday cards for boys, you could open up a Word template, delete whatever images they have and replace them with cars, action figures or whatever else boys like.

As for the printing process, you will need to get greeting card paper for inkjet printers (or whatever else you have). Why is this important? Well, unlike regular typing paper, greeting card paper for inkjet printers is the exact same consistency as the birthday cards you buy from the store. Depending on the quality of your ink, your recipient will never know that you printed out their birthday card from the comfort of home.

Of course, before you purchase greeting card paper for inkjet printers, you must decide which fold you are going to use for your card. Store bought birthday cards are usually half fold. With half fold cards, a landscape orientation is used to print the greeting. The message itself is split into two parts. Once the greeting has been printed, you fold the paper in half to create your birthday card. Note that half fold cards can be vertical or horizontal.

Quarter fold cards work differently. They are usually printed in the “Portrait” orientation. Also, the message is split into four parts. These parts are shown along the fold, which must happen twice. The first fold partitions the paper in half, while the second fold separates the card into four sections. The end result resembles the half fold card, with one major exception. Even with perfect folding, the quarter fold card is not totally flat. In other words, you can tell it was folded.

In any case, most online birthday card makers can accommodate both folds. But when it comes to the paper, you must get something designed for that fold. Half fold greeting paper will not work on quarter fold cards, and vice-versa.

If you ever get confused on all of this, check out some of the videos on YouTube. There are many tutorials explaining how to print out birthday cards.
