Cheese Pun Birthday Cards, a Brie-liant way to say, 'happy birthday!'
Today feels like just the day to take you through some of our cheesiest cheesy puns. Suitable for day brightening, birthdays, romance, take your pick. We all know that puns and cheese go hand in hand like palm in…palm…esan? 😂🤦🏼♀️
As you can tell from a cursory glance through our best sellers list from the last few years, Cat’s got quite the penchant for cheesy wordplay. In fact, one of my all time favourite cards is a cheese based illustration – we’ll come onto that later. She also played Ben Gunn in a Year 6 school play and had a full on cheese based rap….if only youtube and video phones had been available back then…..I digress. Enough preamble…TO THE PUNS!!!
We pride ourselves in giving our customers and fellow pun appreciators the cheesiest puns we can Munster up for every possible occasion.
Firstly, we have this absolute classic. It’s an all purpose cheesy design, suitable for sending as a ‘just because’, for conveying birthday greetings, congratulations, or anything else you’d like to say. Sometimes ‘You’re Brie-liant’ says all you need to say. You can also find this particular Brie as part of our MultiPun greetings card “I know it’s cheesy but…”. This is one of our all time bestselling romantic cards now and has conveyed many a cheesy pick up line to significant others over the years. This selection of puns is also available as an A3 print so that you can still display how fondue you are of each other long after the card has been put in the drawer.
If you bonded with your partner over a cheese board, that card is definitely the one for you, although after the third national lockdown together we’d forgive you if the above was more appropriate.
But fear not, not all of our cheesy cards are that sentimental; Cat’s doodled her fair share of cheeses and realised that there was great need for a collection of birthday cheesy greetings. You can find these on another of our signature Multipun cards, with a suitably illustrated envelope:
And last but by no means least, we move onto my all time favourite card, it’s the deliciously deceptive ‘Lie Brie’. This card is one of my personal favourites. The back of this card is as good as the front, but you’ll have to pick up your own copy to find out why 😛
Alternative Valentines Cards & Love
I really love it when someone comes into the shop looking for a card for their significant other. Especially around Valentine’s Day, it’s such a joy to be able to help someone make their partner laugh with a humorous Valentines Card, or discovering people’s in-jokes and hearing their silly stories.
Cat’s Alternative Valentine’s Cards
Cat’s always enjoyed creating alternative Valentine’s cards, and they’re never specifically puns for Valentine’s day cards either, they’re always blank inside and can be used for any occasion, anniversaries, or even a ‘just because’ card as a surprise for your girlfriend or boyfriend, husband or wife, spouse, lover, homeslice, workslice, crush, fiancee…
Our Grandpa, who the business is named after was always dead set against Valentine’s day so we’d hate to do anything that would offend his sensibilities, (and we’ve found that the market is already pretty chocabloc with teddies and pink love heart cards- and although they have their place not everyone wants to celebrate their unique relationship or anniversary that way, some prefer a sarcastic face palm to a simpering swoon?) However, sometimes it’s nice to acknowledge it in your own way, share a giggle and a few words with a humorous Valentines card.
Humorous Valentine Cards… that deliberately miss the point
For this reason we’ve created some designs which it could be said…deliberately miss the point.
Your message of romance will come across loud and clear but it may just be in a way they weren’t expecting. This blog lists just a few of our favorite punny romance cards which are in equal parts romantic and silly.
Let me explain, I mean, we have this design, for when your significant other complains that you’re not romantic enough, wow them with this phenomenal display of a true Roman Tic. Nothing say Amore like a tick in armour!
If that display of Roman affection isn’t quite enough, perhaps you really need to up the Ant-i with a true show of Rome-ants, I mean they do say that Italian is the language of love after all. You couldn’t get more Rome Ants on a card if you tried. Seriously you couldn’t they’re really hard to find! We were just lucky enough to see these two when they were out and about sight seeing
But maybe that just won’t cut it and you really do need to find a card that tells them exactly how you feel, maybe you want to tell them to be yours…then what better way to express this sentiment than with this loveable bee…in a mine.
Isle Of Ewe
If that’s just not enough to express the way you feel, you really need to go further, push the boat out even….all the way to this. Now come on, a private Island for Valentine’s day? What more could anyone want?
One Eye Love
If that’s not your fancy, why not push out a bigger boat….a pirate boat? We’ve got a card for that too… Other cards don’t have a patch on this one!
One Eye Love
If you like the joke but want a fuzzier character fear not… And look this furry romancer even comes bearing gifts. Chocolates and flowers!
I Four King Love You
No? That not cutting it either. Well we really do make niche alternative greetings our specialty and wouldn’t want to let you down on this most important of occasions. Hmm… how about being a little more emphatic in your declaration
I Fork King Love You
Or for the forks sake why not go for this one?
But just to prove we don’t completely exclude those that like making the big gestures…
