A birthday is always an occasion to celebrate, and if there’s somebody close to you who has a special birthday coming up, you might want to make it that little bit more special.

A happy birthday banner printable PDF is the ultimate way to kick off a birthday party or celebration, and best of all, is the fact that if you do design it yourself, you can personalize it and cater it specifically for the lucky recipient.

Thanks to the web, you can search for a free happy birthday banner printable PDF online, or alternatively you can design and edit your own using SwifDoo PDF instead.

If you’re thinking of designing a birthday banner PDF, here are some useful tips to help you out.

Search for Inspiration

Not everybody is a creative genius with a Master’s degree in Graphic Design and if you’re designing a happy birthday banner for the first time, it can be tricky to find inspiration and ideas.

To help you design a stunning banner, hop online and look for ideas from things such as a birthday card PDF or even a free printable birthday chart PDF and see what takes your eye.

Look at several designs, find ones which you like the best and look at ways in which you can incorporate different elements into your banner to make it unique, rather than just copying existing designs.

Download Free Happy Birthday Templates

For designers out there who are struggling for ideas when designing a birthday banner, a way of making the process even easier is to download and edit a free happy birthday banner template instead.

With so many templates already existing, you can download it, open up SwifDoo PDF editor and edit the birthday template with the software and really personalize your birthday banner and add the finishing touches to it.

Pick Your Colours Carefully

When designing a happy birthday banner printable PDF, colour is also very important.

When you design the banner, choose your colours carefully, as colours can clash and sometimes having too many colours on there will distract from the overall message of the banner itself.

Typical birthday colours include: whites, pinks, light purples, reds, light blues, and so on, though in reality you can choose whichever colours you like.

Make the Text Readable

Finally, as you are creating a happy birthday banner, you need to ensure that the text is readable, and readable from a distance.

Choose a very large font for the main ‘Happy Birthday’ message, and choose a slightly smaller, but still large, font for any secondary messages of texts that your banner might include.
