Some people call him "sir," others "chief." Still others see him as "hero," as in "I never would have gotten [fill-in-the-blank] done without him." Sure, he could be all of those things to you, too, but you're also the lucky duck who also gets to call him Dad.

Read on for our curated selection of printable Fathers Day cards, cards you can buy online, and some tips on what to put in that card before you deliver it!
