A member of your team is about to celebrate a birthday. You want to give them a card, but the only thing you can think to write is “Happy Birthday from the boss.”

Sending birthday wishes for employees and coworkers doesn't have to be stressful and awkward.

Look to Hallmark Business Connections for ideas of what to say in birthday messages. We also offer birthday cards for employees that you can personalize with your company logo and more. We'll make it easy to put a smile on their face and wish a great employee a great day full of happiness.

For the employee who goes above and beyond. They are the first to join every conference call. They support team members when task lists become overwhelming. Employee birthday cards are a personal way to deliver a message that shows you notice.

  • “I appreciate everything you do. Happy Birthday!”

  • “You make this company what it is today. Happy Birthday.”

  • “I am so thankful to have someone who is as dedicated as you are as a member of our team. Happy Birthday.”

  • “Happy Birthday to the hardest worker I’ve ever met.”

  • “Your work ethic is amazing. Happy Birthday.”

  • “Thank you for making us successful. Happy Birthday.”
