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."

Memorable Frames Birth Announcement
"I have been a satisfied customer for several years now buying photo memory books and Christmas cards, but you really topped your service when you printed my grand-daughters birth announcements. They are priceless. They are just like they were on my screen when I ordered them ordered, but only better. The card stock is heavier than thought, the matte finish was perfect, I love the satin feel of them, and the over all art design was great...I used a colored image in the middle and a black & white on both sides for a contrast. We have received many compliments on our announcements. Thank you for helping make our joyous event even happier."

"This card was the perfect way to announce our baby girl's birth. I was looking for something that mentioned the holiday season, but wasn't a standard Christmas card. This was a perfect combo!
This was the first time I purchased the card stock (vs the photo paper). I think in the future, I'll stick with the photo paper option."

Perfect Announcements for the Modern Girl
"Absolutely LOVE the design of the announcement! The price was affordable and the shipping was fast. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the color quality of the pictures could have been somewhat better. But I'm probably just very picky! I would still highly recommend!"
Baby Boy Birth Announcements
In a world where it easy to instantly announce big occasions such as a baby birth via social media and texts, it is easy to lose the personal touch that brings people closer together. Although it is perfectly acceptable to let your acquaintances know about your newest addition via social media, it is important to mail baby girl or baby boy birth announcements to those who are closest to you. Here are a few more birth announcement etiquette tips to help you inform your family and friends of the big news in a proper way.
Finalize Your List of Announcement Recipients
While you are most likely eager to show off your little one to as many people as possible, it might seem strange for someone who didn’t even know you were pregnant to unexpectedly receive a birth announcement. For this reason, you should consider reserving your announcements for close friends, family members (even those who live in other states or countries) and colleagues.
When to Send Birth Announcements
Life suddenly becomes busier after a new baby arrives, so it is easy to get distracted and postpone putting your cards in the mail. However, the older your baby gets, the stranger it will be for your friends and family to receive a late announcement. Try to get your cards in the mail as soon as you can after the baby is born, and no later than six months after birth. While you’re busy getting pictures of your little bundle of joy for the announcements, consider taking the opportunity to create a photo book starring your newest family addition.
What Information Should Be Included on the Announcements?
While you are free to get creative with the general wording of your birth announcements, they should at least include basic information about the baby, including his or her name, birth date, weight and length. The names of the parents and any older siblings should also be mentioned on the cards.
