Modern Script Boy Birth Announcement
"First off, your website was easy to use. Uploading pictures to my gallery was easy. When it came time to pick what pictures I wanted to put on my birth announcement they were all there and easy to view/sort. I loved the big selection of birth announcements that you offer. The modern script boy birth announcement was simple and elegant. I loved that I could pick how many pictures I wanted to place on the announcement. I decided to place 7 pictures on the front, 6 were smaller but the center picture on the front was nice and big, it was the centerpiece of the entire announcement. I love the font selections as well as being able to write a little message about my sons birth. The pictures turned out great and the card stock was nice and sturdy. The only thing that I would say that I would of liked is a few more color choices for the border and body of the card. It did not seem like there was a big enough selection of colors. Other than that I was very happy with my purchase and so was my family. It shipped really fast to me and came packaged great so nothing got bent in the mail. I will be purchasing future items from shutterfly such as birthday announcements and photo books."

"I made darling baby announcements for a friend that was occupied with her little one. It was so easy and fun with all of the new emblishments. It looked so professional, and is so easy that anyone can do it. She was thrilled with them."

"Shutterfly provided a diverse assortment of baby announcements. I was looking for a card that wasn't
"too babyish", and they provided nice color coordinated cards. I also appreciated the front/ back option and the ability to put more pics on the back."
Showcase Your Bundle of Joy With a Birth Announcement
Babies provide an endless stream of photo opportunities, and what better way to spotlight some of your great shots than with photo collage birth announcements? At Shutterfly, we’ve gathered more than 100 template options that have room for multiple photos of your new addition.
You won’t be stuck choosing a single shot to introduce your newborn because we all know how difficult choosing a single gem can be. We know that sharing every aspect of your baby’s personality, such as maternity photos, could require many different photos, so we are ready to help.
Whether you hired a professional to photograph the newest member of the family or you rocked the camera yourself, you likely have an array of different poses to choose from. Here are some themes you could go with:
Sleepy time: Most brand-new babies sleep all the time. This presents a lot of opportunities for adorable poses. Maybe choose a full-body pose for the main shot in the collage, and then have a close-up of toes and a shot with the baby yawning in the other slots.
Wide awake: Slightly older babies offer more awake-time photo options. If you are lucky enough to get a smile, that would make a terrific main image. Other photo positions might include the baby looking out from under a blanket, a yawn, the child propped up on its elbows or even the baby wearing a kicky hat.
Family time: Many parents like to feature the whole family in their photo collage birth announcements. The card could feature the baby alone, with the parents, with other siblings or any mix of these.
Photo birth announcements don’t include a great deal of room for text, but that’s because we want the new baby to get all the attention. Still, when it comes to choosing which information to include, you’ve got some options:
Just the facts: The traditional things to add would be the baby’s name, date of birth, length and weight.
Family: Instead, you could choose to include the child’s name along with the parents’ and siblings’ names, especially if some of the photos are family shots.
Neutral: Or include a simple sentence such as “The Millers welcomed baby Tyler Grayson to the family on Oct. 3, 2016.”
