What customers have to say about our Baby Shower Invitations

Baby Shower Invites
"This was so perfect for me & at such a decent price for good custom made quality. It started out being over $56 for 20 invitations but after adding all the easy to find promo codes & an extra coupon code I found on their app that downloaded on my phone, it came out to just over $21 + the 15 free extra invitations they threw in. So in all I got 35 custom made, good quality invitations plus the free decent envelopes for each one for $21 & some change. I think that's a great deal. Definitely sticking with these guys! :)"

Great card for a Couples Shower!
"I used this card for a couple's baby shower. I still think it's cute and fun, without being so feminine that guys won't want to come to a baby shower (the baby is a boy, which I think lends itself to a baby shower for men and women too). I liked that you could edit the wording, font and text color from the original. I'm very happy with my purchase."

"I love making shutterfly cards. The choices are great and so customizable. This one was adorable and gave me the most options to send as many pictures to a family member who doesn't get to see my kids often."
Boy Baby Shower Invitations
Baby showers for boys are joyous occasions for celebrating an upcoming birth. Sometimes the mother will plan the shower herself, and sometimes she and the father will plan it together. More often than not, a trusted friend or family member will be in charge of the event, including sending out invitations.
Who to Invite to the Baby Shower
Especially if you’re planning the shower for someone else, you may be unsure exactly who to invite. Unless the baby shower is a surprise, it’s perfectly fine to ask mother’s advice. Generally, baby showers should be filled with close friends and family. You will probably want to avoid inviting acquaintances or the mother’s business associates who don’t know her outside of work. Baby showers are generally intimate affairs, and they often include fun activities that may make guests uncomfortable if they don’t already know the mother well. Of course, not everyone invited to the shower will be able to attend. Some may have conflicts in their schedule or previous engagements. If you send out 20 invitations, there is a good chance you will get at least 10 guests, which makes for a great number. Any more than 20 guests could become too impersonal.
Either before or after deciding whom to invite comes the fun part—choosing the invitations! Shutterfly has great choices for baby shower invitations for boys. Some of the options include cards with personal photos, foil-stamped cards and cards for a couple's shower. You can also choose stationery for a gender reveal or for a “baby sprinkle,” which is an event for parents-to-be and moms-to-be who prefer limited gifts.

Other Must Have Items
If you’re the pregnant one, don’t forget thank you cards for all the wonderful gifts you’re sure to receive. Shutterfly has thank you cards specifically for babies. While you’re at it, you might also want to pick up some personalized address labels. You can use these labels both for the baby shower invites and for general use. Address labels take the pain out of writing your return address over and over again, and they make the envelopes look more polished. View these helpful tips on how to address a baby shower card.
Getting the right stationery for your baby shower is an enjoyable and important step in the planning process.
