If you are a company or business that doesn’t already practice sending birthday cards, what are you waiting for? Sending birthday cards is a great practice that shows a lot of individual thought towards your clients and employees.
“But I already send out personalized holiday cards! Why do I have to send out cards on birthdays?”
Holiday cards are great during the holiday season to show your appreciation and care towards your clients and employees but people know they are sent in mass towards everyone on your mailing list. Birthday cards on the other hand, make individuals feel like you are remembering only them on their special day. This specific attention can make all the difference in securing a new client, increasing business or having your employees give 120% instead of 100% effort because they feel valued.
Remember, your main purpose is to have people associate good sentiment with your company. To do so, you need to personalize the front of your cards with your business name so people will always see your company name without having to open the card.
At the Gallery Collection, there are two types of front card personalization that you can choose. They are Die-Cut Birthday Cards and Editable Text Birthday Cards. We are going to highlight the differences between the two types of cards so you can choose the perfect card that will suit your company’s needs.
Die-Cut Birthday Cards
Special Features: A rectangular “window”-cut shows your custom imprint from the inside layer. Use Die-Cut Birthday Cards to prominently feature your company name on a maximum of two lines.
Example: Stars and Streamers
Die-cut birthday cards are memorable because they use a rectangular box cut on the front flap so that the text underneath (your business name) displays through. The result is a cool effect that can look professional or fun, depending on the card design you choose.
If you decide upon on a die-cut birthday card for your company, we recommend choosing a “FOIL” color – gold or silver, for your imprint text so that your company name will stand out even more beautifully in the die-cut box.
Editable Text Birthday Cards
Special Features: Printed text personalization on the front: pick your own color, font, size, alignment.
Example: From All of Us Birthday Card
Editable text birthday cards are another kind of front card personalization that can make your company name stand out. Unlike the Die-Cut Birthday Cards, Editable Text Birthday Cards do not feature a cut-out box. However, Editable Text Birthday Cards are special because the font type, color, size, and text alignment are customizable on the front of the card. All of the editing can be done and previewed online when you choose an editable text birthday card from the Gallery Collection website.
In addition, you can also customize the inside imprint of editable text birthday cards. Therefore, editable text birthday cards give you a lot of flexibility into personalizing the card to fit you and your company’s image.
With this new information, hopefully you can find the card that fits exactly your company or business’ needs. Whether you choose a die-cut birthday card or an editable text birthday card, both types of cards will surely make a great professional impression.
9 thoughts on “Die-Cut Birthday Cards vs Editable Text Birthday Cards”
I couldn’t agree with you more! We always send birthday cards to our clients. I love the idea of having our company name on the front. That Stars and Streamers design is gorgeous! I think I found our next design!
I have never received a nice looking birthday card like these from any company on my birthday. If anything, I have gotten generic-looking, flimsy postcards wishing me a Happy Birthday along with a sale discount on merchandise or a service. These cards look like the companies actually put some thought into their birthday wishes to their customers without trying to solicit a sale at the same time!
I like the editable text better, they look more custom made than the die cut. The die cut is fine but unless you are using foil that matches the front of the card they don’t look as professional
Thanks for the great explanation – really cleared things up! Both options are nice – guess it just depends on the look you are going for.
I think both cards are great ideas. When I display my cards, my company and myself can see who was generous enough to acknowledge me without have to fiddle with opening the card.
Don’t let the editable cards you see limit your ideas. It’s not just the fact that you can put your company’s name on the front of the card, but you can write a special custom greeting inside the cards, too. Feature that great division you’re manager of on the front then write something special that will mean a lot for everyone’s birthdays. The cards are a classy way to say Happy Birthday!
I love the editable text cards! Playing with the different colors and fonts is actually alot of fun. There are so many options to choose from – you’ll have fun customizing your own preferred style!
Was so tired of seeing the same old cards at the store. Now I can customize my card with my own greetings and colors and fonts. There are so many choices, it’s hard to pick just one. Nice to have so many options.
Wow, found a card that I can design myself, the website make it so easy to follow and play around with different colors & fonts, can’t wait to complete my order.
