Justin Bieber’s birth celebrated with Hallmark card line

Justin Bieber turns 18 Thursday, a date you already should have marked on your calendar (with a heart around it).

And what better way to celebrate the busking Canadian kid turned international superstar/commodity’s birthday than with a line of Hallmark cards.


(Hallmark)

Yes, Hallmark will release more than 48 Bieber cards — some with lights and music — to Wal-Mart stores this April, according to a news release. Hallmark stores will carry the cards, some of which boast ridiculously clunky slogans (“Don’t waste a wish on being cuter, because you could simply not be any cuter”), in May. Tweens and parents of tweens will shell out between $2.57 and $9.99 for the cards, which will subsequently be taped to bedroom walls and locker doors across the world.

The cards are just the latest items that have the Biebs’ baby face plastered on them for marketing purposes. Justin Bieber singing toothbrush, anyone?

See photos of the cards below.

For the straight-up cool kid in your life.

So what you’re saying is that I’m pretty cute?


(Hallmark)

I don’t even want to know what a birthday thing is.
