The search for the perfect birthday card usually entails a labored trek through aisles and aisles of cookie-cutter cards. And if the recipient is someone you really care about, it can be a struggle to find a meaningful card that expresses exactly what they mean to you. That’s why a video card makes for a great alternative. You can customize it with your own photos and words, in a way that no store-bought card can. So if you’re thinking of making a birthday video card, here are some awesome video styles we think fit the bill:
