In this guide, Hallmark writers offer birthday-message tips and inspiring examples.

Writing tip: Ages 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95 and 100 are traditionally considered milestones. Cards specific to these birthdays will feature the age number prominently in their design, but you can make any card a milestone card (or any birthday a milestone birthday) by writing that shiny new age number somewhere in your personal message.
Birthdays only come once a year, so this is your chance to make the occasion special! Depending on your friend's tastes, they may prefer a funny card or a sentimental card. No matter which card you choose, you can express your own thoughts, emotions, and memories when you personalize the card for your friend. Remind them of special moments in your shared history or funny memories from previous birthdays.
Like we said, getting a greeting through the mail is becoming more and more of a special occurrence seeing as cell phones and e-mail make it faster than ever to reach loved ones. Just because it may take them a little while longer to receive your greeting doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t send one! We can even mail the cards for you! That’s right - signed, sealed and delivered!
