There always comes a time in your life when you need a card for a last-minute birthday or celebration and you don’t have any on hand. And when you rush to the store to grab one, they of course are out of the type you need. One of the best ways to avoid that all too common problem is by having a stash of cards at home. And if you really want to impress someone, pop-up cards go the extra mile.
Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, or wedding, pop-up cards are an elevated version of your traditional greeting cards. They’re essentially works of art, so they may be a bit pricier than your average greeting card but they’re totally worth it. Standard cards end up just being thrown out, but theses ones at least will be displayed a little longer. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best pop-up cards to keep on hand for when you least expect it.
