So much more than a happy birthday card

The old way (birthday cards made of paper) meant that someone needed to go out and buy a birthday card, walk it around the office, missing everyone who isn’t there or who works remotely. Not anymore. Birthday Kudoboards are fast, efficient, and cost-effective—especially for remote and hybrid teams. Having a birthday card experience for employees, regardless of where they are, is important. Online birthday ecards are the way of the future.

Frequently asked questions about online birthday cards

Creating an online birthday card is simple. First, start the card and add whatever media you would like. You can make changes to the background and font as well. After you create your card, put the recipients email in and push send! You can even send it on a specific date and time. Here is a great example of a virtual birthday card.
