Talking Year Greeting Cards

  • Designed to look like a real newspaper
  • Sound chip featuring main events
  • Large format cards
  • Features luxury graphics
  • Dates from 1930 - 1989

If you’re seeking an alternative to the standard greeting card, these Talking Year Greeting Cards really take the cake.

You can personalise your tabloid-style card with Any Year (1930 – 1989), and your recipient will see and hear about all the news events that happened in that chosen Year, whether it’s their birth, wedding or anniversary date. Made to look like a tabloid newspaper, our “Birthday Times” card features news events and stories from 60 years of British and World history.

More Information

Unlike the bog-stand card, these greetings cards are designed to look like a tabloid newspaper. This unique sound card collection contains news events, famous birthdays and a sports back page.

In the style of a “News Reel Commentator” the sound chip proclaims “But best of all, YOU were born!” This major feature brings a personal “feel” to this unique year card.
