Dad jokes earn their own humor category for a reason. Fortunately, that makes it easy to find funny Father’s Day cards for your old man.
Just like your dad, they’re kind of corny, but everyone loves them. Your dad has done a lot for you over the years besides just making you laugh. That’s why you’ll want to find a special way to celebrate him on Father’s Day this year. So after you finish picking the best Father’s Day gifts, you’ll want to find the perfect Father’s Day card. (And, in case you’re wondering, it’s Sunday, June 19, so mark your calendar.)
But before you buy that best Fathe’s Day card, be sure you know what you want to write inside. That way, you’ll know whether to get a blank card or one with a pre-written note.
What To Write in a Father’s Day Card
Whether you’re gifted with words or not, deciding exactly what to write in a Father’s Day card can feel untenable. You might want to be witty or sincere. Sometimes the space provided is too small, whereas, at other points, that space feels like a blank page you’ll never hope to fill.
Our advice is to think of your relationship with your father and write something that pairs well. If you’re always joking around, maybe give him some new material for his jokes. If you have a loving relationship, thank your dad for everything he’s done for you.
As Shutterfly points out, “Nothing means more to your father than hearing how much you appreciate him, and a nice Father’s Day card makes a forever keepsake.” So, start with something simple, like:
- Happy Father’s Day, Dad. I’m so happy you’re my father.
- You may be my dad, but you’re so much more to me. You’re my hero, my friend and everything in between.
- Dad, I want you to know that I see the sacrifices you made for me as I was growing up. There’s no possible way I could pay you back for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you.
- Thanks for being my father! I know it wasn’t always easy.
- The older I get, the more I appreciate how amazing it is to have a dad like you. I love and look up to you!
And, if your relationship with your father is complicated, don’t feel like you have to write an over-the-top statement of love. Be truthful and sincere. Stick to what’s positive between the two of you.
Finally, don’t forget to send cards to the other men in your life as well. Your grandfather, stepfather, uncles, husband, brother, son and father-like figures all deserve to be recognized.

Minted Playing Favorites Card
Great for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, this card speaks to your parents’ desire to be the best.

It makes sure your dad knows you’re his favorite child. While this duo-toned card may be quite plain to some, it’s sure to put a smile on your dad’s face.

PopLife Dad’s Financial Burden 3D Pop Up Card
Because we love pop-up cards so much, we had to include at least two on our list. This one is a bit more sinister than funny.

Minted Boo-Boo Fixer Card
Similar to the Father’s Day card listed above, this Minted piece was designed by an independent artist.

Plus, it gives plenty of space to add a personalized message on both sides of the interior.

Just as the kids love pop-up books, dads love pop-up cards, too. There’s no denying the fact that seeing a pop-up interior instantly puts a smile on everyone’s face.
