Here are some tips to help you create and send your birthday eCard:

The most popular eCards often reflect trends from beyond the world of stationery. For example, the fashion and interior design industries are both inspirations for digital birthday card designs. Design tricks such as a bright, warm color palette and a single eye-catching focal element are influences that have carried over to stationery and birthday cards.

Here are a few more of the popular trends to stay up to date with:

  • Bold Prints: Design movements are bursting out with a style that is loud and proud. Incredibly vibrant prints and patterns (floral, peacock, and geometric) dominate. Look for striking wallpaper, exotic textiles, and birthday greetings that jump off the screen.


  • Vintage Appeal: Relive the era of The Great Gatsby! The 1920s are an iconic golden era and everyone can get swept up in the fantasy. Fill your closet with flapper dresses and Art Deco accents, while you find vintage-inspired illustrations on your birthday cards.


  • The Unexpected: Contrasting textures, unusual proportions, and an eclectic blend of styles also define current looks. Expect to see unusual pairings of texture and color or other accents that will surprise and delight you.


Stay in style with a thoughtful digital greeting that reflects the hottest trends.  Schedule a free birthday eCard for a loved one who has a birthday coming up!
