The Greeting Card Association is an international trade organization representing the interests of greeting card and stationery manufacturers. John Beeder, former president of the Greeting Card Association, says greeting cards are effective tools to communicate important feelings to people you care about: "Anyone feels great when they receive an unexpected card in the mail. For me, there’s nothing like a greeting card to send a special message. I’m proud to be a part of an industry that not only keeps people connected, but uses both imagery and the power of words to help us express our emotions.”
Cover Verse: My Beautiful Friend Inside Verse: From the time you were born to this moment today, From the nice things you do to the warm things you say... From the smiles that you share and the help that you give, To the genuine joy in the life that you live... From inside to outside, your beauty shines through, And you make the world better by just being you. Happy Birthday
A standard greeting card is printed on high-quality paper (such as card stock), and is rectangular and folded, with a picture or decorative motif on the front. Inside is a pre-printed message appropriate for the occasion, along with a blank space for the sender to add a signature or handwritten message. A matching envelope is sold with the card. Some cards and envelopes feature fancy materials, such as gold leaf, ribbons, or glitter.
[Lyrics] Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, you're lookin' better than a barbecued brisket. You're the cream of the crop and the salt of the earth so we're all celebratin' the day of your birth. You can charm the dew off the honeysuckle when folks are feelin' blue, you can make 'em chuckle. We'll be fancy prancin' until the chickens roost, until the cows are home and all the varmints have vamoosed. Now we feel plum tuckered from having so much fun, So you can stick a fork in us - it's lookin' like we're done. [Message] Happy Birthday
Artist Notes: This is a humorous birthday card especially for dog lovers. It features a colour photographic image of a Jack Russell Terrier Dog leaning forwards with his paws and nose cutely resting on the arm of an office chair. The text above the photo reads 'I've been pondering life, the universe and all that, and I've totally worked out what's most important ...' And inside it reads '... You and cookies, although not necessarily in that order' 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'
As not answering his stack of correspondence appeared impolite, the London socialite decided to speed up the task by enlisting his friend, artist J.C. Horsley, to design a festive card with a fill-in-the-blank salutation in 1843. The first-ever Christmas card soon inspired copycats, with holiday greetings taking off both in Britain and the United States by the end of the century.

A greeting card is an illustrated piece of card stock or high quality paper featuring an expression of friendship or other sentiment. Although greeting cards are usually given on special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas or other holidays, such as Halloween, they are also sent to convey thanks or express other feelings (such as to get well from illness). Greeting cards, usually packaged with an envelope, come in a variety of styles. There are both mass-produced as well as handmade versions that are distributed by hundreds of companies large and small. While typically inexpensive, more elaborate cards with die-cuts or glued-on decorations may be more expensive.
I don't know if it's just the Avery software of what but these do not print the way that you see them on screen. It's incredibly frustrating when something is centered and there should be no problem with it printing centered on both the front and back but the cards end up overlapping and you can't print doubled sided because they just don't print right. I never have this type of problem when I print regular index cards or word/pdf documents so I'm going with its an Avery software glitch but as long as you print one-sided they're OK.
