Greeting Cards for Every Occasion
Enjoy free Avery templates for creating your own greeting cards
Designing your own greeting cards is fun to do and great for making friends and family feel special. When you’re far away from loved ones, sending personalized greeting cards in the mail can help you feel more physically connected than emails and text messages can.
Reach across any distance to let someone special know that you’re thinking of them. Whether you want to say “thank you,” “happy birthday” or just “hello,” it’s easy to get started with this curated collection of cute Avery templates for greeting cards.
To start personalizing your own greeting card, simply click the Avery template you like and it will open perfectly formatted for 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" note cards in our free online design software (Avery Design and Print Online). When you’re finished you can print on your home printer, or let us print your cards for you.
Fresh “Thank You” greeting cards for spring
Thank you cards are a lovely way to show your gratitude. Use one of our premade thank you designs and customize them to make them your own. With our free design tool you can customize any Avery template with your own colors, text, graphics and more.

Sweet food-themed greeting cards that say “Thank You”
Everyone loves snacks! Trendy food themes are really fun to use on greeting cards for friends, family or even your kids’ teachers. You can drop off a box of donuts with a donut-themed greeting card or pair a coffee-themed Avery template with a gift card for a coffee shop.
Sending gift cards with matching themed greeting cards is a fantastic way to show your appreciation if you can’t be there in person.

“Missing You” greeting cards for connecting with friends
Sometimes it can be hard to connect with friends you haven’t talked to in a while. Whether you’re far away, just moving in different circles or separated by social distancing, it’s nice to know someone is missing you.
If you’re missing your friends, try sending them one of these clever greeting cards to strike up a conversation. It’s a fun way to reach out and also a great option if you can’t figure out what to say in a text or email.
Design Tip: You can change the font style, size and color on most Avery templates by using the Text button on the left side of the editor screen.
