Outsource Your Message Internally

The easiest way to get messages for your business birthday cards is probably more obvious than you think.

Before you waste your precious time on what you want to write on you business birthday cards, consider letting coworkers write messages. Seriously, get off the internet now, and go get your employees involved.

You can pass the card around at work and have them write their own messages. This way, the card will likely be more personal, creative, and funny. Everyone is crowd sourcing these days, so why not crowd source your business birthday card messages. It's a lot cheaper than outsourcing.

Buying Business Birthday Cards

When you buy your birthday cards, it's a good idea to personalize your card with your business logo or business slogan.  If you can work a play on words into your birthday cards, you can add some creative marketing.  If you have many employees, there are plenty of card companies out there who will print you bulk orders of business birthday cards.  Usually, the larger number you order, the cheaper you can get them.

The business birthday cards could cost anywhere from $.50 to several dollars.  You can spend as much as you want on the cards, but you might want to invest in some incentive instead of the card itself.
