Choosing the perfect free birthday ecards
Wish your favorite people happy birthday with festive and free birthday ecards. Choose from dozens of birthday card designs that are sure to match your recipient’s personal style. From colorful illustrations to bold typography, browse a variety of different birthday cards that don’t compromise on style (or your budget). You’ll even find designs from our exclusive partners, including fashion retailer and home brand, Anthropologie.
Our pre-formatted templates set you up for success, but all of our sample text is fully customizable. Include your recipient’s nickname, a fond memory, or their favorite saying to personalize the card. Upload your own photo or let the design shine on its own.
While we aim to have a wide selection of customizable templates available, there is nothing we love more than an original or out of the box theme. If you want to edit one of our static greetings, change the color of a card, or start a design from scratch, reach out to our Personal Design Services team for complimentary support.
If all of the balloon, cake, and confetti illustrations have you feeling inspired to throw a party, browse our birthday invitations.
Tips and tricks for making free birthday ecards
After deciding on the perfect birthday ecard, let our digital tools do the rest of the work. Add your recipient’s name and email address with the help of an online address book. When you send a card through Paperless Post, all of your recipients are automatically saved into your Address Book and are organized into "Past Mailing Lists" with names that correspond with the event they were sent with. Once you are ready to send using our iOS app, our smart technology will suggest recipients that match one of your Apple contacts or Paperless Post address book contacts.
Because you have chosen a free design, there is no need to make a purchase before sending. If you are being prompted to buy Coins, make sure that you have not included any premium options such as: envelopes, liners, specialty stamps, premium inserts and response cards, custom backdrops and logos. You can visit our FAQs for more information around pricing.
