"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 was searching around everywhere for the perfect birth announcement for my baby girl. Once I saw the truffle ruffle girl birth announcement, my shopping was over!! This card is soo pretty! The colors are very soft and not overwhelming. Your biggest decision will be picking out what picture you want on this card! I soo recommend this birth announcement."
"Our birth announcement turned out great! Couldn't have been happier!"
"Very cute birth announcements. Gender natural we used them for our daughters announcement. Great quality. Arrived on time! We are very satisfied with this product"
"We were really pleased with how this announcement turned out. The layout and text came out very well."
The design of birth announcements has evolved over time. Years ago, traditional printed announcements were really the only option for information beyond what was listed in the newspaper. Designs included a lot of clouds, storks and other illustrations.
It was not until recently that photos of the actual child became the most common choice for parents. At Shutterfly, we understand that changing trends should be reflected in our offerings, so we have more than 100 contemporary birth announcements that speak to today’s popular design choices.
We love patterns and textures on baby announcements, and we know parents do, too. That’s why we feature dozens of templates that perfectly match today’s trends. Consider some of these options:
The standard 5x7 birth announcement, rectangular card is still an option, but many parents are choosing something a little more unique for the shape of their contemporary birth announcements. We offer one-sided cards that feature a variety of edge designs, from brackets to tickets to scallops. Of course, we also have adorable straight-edged templates as well. The irony here is that although these are modern birth announcements, some of the edge features are designed to look more like vintage printed items instead!
We know that many of the recipients on your announcements list will hold onto the card for years as a keepsake. That’s why we print all of our contemporary birth announcements on heavy cardstock that will stand the test of time without fading. Every photo is printed at high resolution for sharpness, and the colors stay bright and true. You won’t even need to order envelopes separately, as those are included with every announcements order.
Whether your baby was born last week or last month, you can quickly design the perfect announcement to share your good news. We’ve even got extensive shipping options that can have them on your front porch in no time. You can get your announcements out fast and save money with a Shutterfly coupon.
