A Birthday Surprise


Birthday Cards You Won't Find In Stores

Traditional brick-and-mortar card shops just don't have the shelf space for age specific birthday cards. You might find milestone years like 18, 21, 30, 40, etc., but what about 14? Or 78? Or 42?

On-line shops like Greeting Card Universe have virtually unlimited "shelf space" and offer a virtually unlimited selection of age specific birthday cards like these very surprised penguins by artist Corrie Kuipers! The humorous card's inner text reads: "Look Out! Here come another birthday! (hope yours is full of pleasant surprises)"  Every age is represented from 1 to 100, and the numbers on the front of each card have been individually colored in vibrant eye-catching hues.  Send a card like this, and you're sure to get a smile!

Comes in Foreign Languages, Too

It's not easy finding cards for relatives, friends or other loved ones who live in another country, or whose primary language is other than English. Trying to find a "Happy Birthday" card in Polish, Chinese or Turkish is almost impossible for most of us, but Corrie Kuipers has thought of that, too. A variation of this funny penguin card comes in a variety of languages: Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. So if you need to wish someone a "feliz cumpleaños" or "joyeux anniversaire" - you can find the right card to inspire a smile, no matter the language!
