Don’t limit your birthday card messages to just words. Add a unique twist to your birthday cards and say more through videos. 

Birthday cards are an important part of a birthday celebration.

These cards represent the special bond you share with the celebrant that lets them know you remember their special day.

Turning your usual birthday greeting card into a video greeting card is a unique and fun way to personalize your card.

With videos, you can say your happy birthday wishes, exactly how you want it.

In this article, you’ll discover unique birthday message ideas for everyone. You’ll also learn why adding videos to your greeting card is important and how you can add videos using your mobile devices. 

Your video greeting card vs. a regular birthday card

For starters, a video greeting card is pretty straightforward—it’s simply a greeting card with a video. But why do you really need to add videos? What difference does adding videos to your greeting cards make? Here are 7 things you should know:

Adds more value to your birthday greeting card

Personalizing your cards makes them more heartfelt and valuable than commercial cards. Make them more special by adding personal video messages from the heart.

Say more than just words

A picture paints a thousand words, but a video paints a million. Through videos, you can express your most genuine wishes of happiness, success, and love directly, just as how you’d say them in person.

Relive a fond memory

Apart from birthday video greetings, you can also add memorable clips and videos. By doing so, you’re not only wishing someone a happy birthday, but also immortalizing a special moment through your cards.

Allows creative freedom

Something that a greeting card with a video does best is promote the freedom of expression needed to create a memorable greeting. In an era where ideas are readily available with a few taps and clicks, uniqueness and creativity have become rare commodities.

Express emotions

You don’t need to write a lengthy letter just to show your sincerity. With a video greeting message, you’re free to show expressions that say more than what you feel. So when words fail, use videos.

More interactive and immersive

Videos on your greeting cards are eye-catching and more engaging for receivers. They’re great at capturing anyone’s attention. Just imagine how many greeting cards anyone receives on their birthdays, especially on milestone birthdays like a golden birthday. If you want to stand out, use videos.

Move you closer to your loved ones

A greeting card is an emotional and, somehow, physical connection between you and your recipients. These connections are built through the video messages that you send and the physical greeting cards that you give. 

But you don’t need to undergo a complicated process, download complex apps, or install tricky software to do this. Here’s a simple greeting card generator you can try.

GiftLips: A greeting card generator can print your video greetings

GiftLips is a greeting card generator that you can use to create an e-card or a printable greeting card. But what happens to your videos? Well, they’re also printed. Here’s how:

A dynamic QR code on your greeting card carries your videos, so when your recipients scan your QR code, they’re redirected to your videos. They can scroll through multiple videos. And the most interesting part is GiftLips cards’ interactive features where recipients can like and comment on each video. 

When to send a birthday greeting card

According to USPS, it takes about 2 to 5 business days to send a greeting card. If you’re planning to send a physical greeting card through the mail, send your card at least 8 to 10 days before to accommodate for any delays.

You can always let GiftLips ship your greeting cards directly to your recipients for FREE. 

If you’re running out of time, you can send your greeting card online as an e-card online, which is also free.
