Printable Birthday Poster

With FB walls and the ability to double tap a friend’s birthday photo – I find my self not sending birthday cards as often as I used to. There is something special about actually receiving a birthday card in the mail though – and even better when it folds out into a bright and fun birthday poster. Send this colorful fold-out birthday poster and show someone they are special enough to actually get mail, not just messages, on their birthday this year.

The colorful poster is also a great way to surprise a friend, teacher, or co-worker. Follow the directions to print out the poster and then tape it up over their computer, on their wind shield (with balloons inside!), or on the classroom door to make a bright birthday day for a very deserving friend.

One side of the happy birthday poster has 8 different sections that scream bright party fun while the backside has a large happy birthday text display. You can even print this fun file one sided (leave off the happy birthday backside) for a party invitation that will stop friends right in their tracks.

Step 1: Download the PDF file onto your computer. Use Adobe Reader to open the file.
