Why do people celebrate birthdays? What’s so special about it that people treat it differently than other days? For one thing, birthdays are the commemoration of a person’s natal day—meaning the date when they were born—and this alone is an acceptable reason as to why birthdays are special and worth celebrating. For those persons who are close to the birthday celebrant, they would usually get themselves involved in the planning of a celebration in hopes of surprising the celebrant and them feel special on their birthday. On the other hand, the person celebrating their birthday would usually honor themselves by being grateful for reaching that point in life, as well as for the achievements they have accomplished over the year since their last birthday.
Just as we would want to keep birthdays as colorful as possible to make it memorable, we would also want to incorporate that colorfulness to birthday-related tools and printable media to further make it special on the part of the person celebrating their birthday. And what exactly is the connection between colors and birthdays? The reason we brought that up is because right below this introduction is a collection of colorful birthday postcard designs that have been gathered here and made available for everybody to download. There are over fifteen postcard designs here to choose from, check them out now.
Let’s officially start off this article with this flat yet creative balloon-themed birthday postcard design. Balloons are very common decorations during birthdays, especially children’s birthdays, which is why this postcard design works best if the person celebrating their birthdays is a child. But then again, balloons fit well in any birthday party, so why settle with using this only in children’s parties when you can also use it in birthday celebrations intended for grown-ups? If you choose to go with this modern postcard design, you can use the back side to write your personal message and well-wishes to the birthday celebrant.
Earlier, we have mentioned how the people close to the person celebrating their birthday would want to make the day special for the celebrant, and this can be done by throwing a surprise party or going out of the usual. The birthday postcard design above shows a crown over the birthday greeting, which can be interpreted as treating the birthday celebrant—most preferably a male considering the design of the crown—as a king during their special day. To many people, this design may probably be too simple for a postcard or a greeting card, but it sure is creative enough to capture people’s attentions.
Here is a cute birthday postcard design that you may very well enjoy. This design illustrates two parent birds expressing their love to their offspring even before they hatched, and this is also something that humans do during the mother’s pregnancy. Scientific studies confirmed that the sense of hearing is the first to develop during an infant’s growth inside their mother’s womb and the last one to stop functioning when a person passes. Because of this, it has been encouraged that parents talk to their not-yet-born child and express love to it so that by the time the child is born, it can already recognize the voices of its parents and will help in creating their bond easily.

This vintage-inspired postcard design screams simplicity while still keeping itself classy and artistic. This design definitely brings us back in time to when postcards were created less digitally and more by hand, and this required a lot of effort from the designer. In relation to simplicity, this vintage theme may also be ideal for designing corporate postcards as well.
If the birthday celebrant happens to be a musician or someone who just loves music so much, then you may want to consider using the birthday postcard design above, which resembles the body of a guitar. Another awesome feature of this design is its hand-drawn inspired illustrations, from the sound hole and bridge of the guitar to the random pattern of musical notes. Use this design for the front page of your birthday postcards, and on the back page, you can use it to write your personal message to the birthday celebrant.
What do we commonly do during birthday celebrations? We usually bring out a birthday cake topped with candles for the birthday celebrant to blow out. For some, the number of candles would depend on the age of the birthday celebrants, but for others, they would use candles shaped as numbers instead. The birthday postcard design above illustrates that practice since it shows a hand-drawn cake with some lit candles on top of it. This design would be perfect for any person of any age since the hand-drawn illustrations are sure to please both children and adults alike.
Take a look at this colorful and vibrant birthday postcard design with hand-drawn illustrations, this one would be an ideal postcard to give to children for their birthday. Let’s face it, if us grown-ups can appreciate this postcard, how much more with children, right? Some people would say that children are not easy to please, but these people are wrong. In reality, children are easier to please than adults, and it only takes them something that will stimulate their eyes such as bright colors and cute illustrations similar to the ones used in cartoons or the ones on the design above to get their interests.
Here is another simple and more traditional birthday postcard design that you may be interested in. The front side of this design contains the details of the birthday celebration, and aside from being vintage-themed, it also resembles a chalkboard. On the other hand, similar to the previous vintage design that we have shown you, the back side here is divided into two halves, with the left half having the same contents as the front side and the right half left blank for the sender to write their personal message. As you can see from the image above, the upper-right corner of the back side contains a small box intended for a postage stamp.
But if you would rather go for a more modern look for your birthday postcards, then this design would be a good pick. This design has almost everything that you could possibly ask for from a modern-themed design, ranging from vibrant color gradients, shape patterns, and three-dimensional effects with its elements. Indeed, this design is sure to stand out with all its creative use of colors and elements. But even with all those features eager to steal the spotlight, there is an area specifically designated for the details regarding the event, and this can easily be read since it is placed away from all the other elements.
Here is yet another straightforward postcard design with a rather dramatic feel to it. This birthday postcard design simply illustrates a three-layered birthday cake with the words “Happy Birthday” written on it. The reason for the dramatic effect on this postcard design comes from the choice of colors as well as the shadow effects added to this design. And to enhance the appearance of the design further, a few abstract decorative elements are added around the sides surrounding the birthday cake.
To those who enjoy knitting, especially the birthday celebrant, they would very much appreciate it if you give them a birthday postcard that resembles their favorite pastime. This design, as simple as it is, looks amazingly like a genuine knitted creation, which makes it even more meaningful.
Let the person celebrating their birthday know how much they mean to you, but in a rather literal and comedic way. For this birthday card design, nothing else can be said except for its simplicity since it takes the statement “You Rock!” to a different level.
