Perfect and would buy again

"To bring announcement to the world a new baby boy has arrived. Short sweet and to the point, loved this card front and back. Basics on the front of card and backside used to tell the story where he was born, and photos of him and his sibling. Love it!"

Birth Announcements That Roll With Time

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.

Signs of the Times

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:

  • Chalkboard: The black-and-white combo is suited to both boy and girl announcements and provides the perfect backdrop for “handwritten” typefaces.
  • Gradient: Also known as “ombre,” this is a gradual change from a color’s lightest shade to the darkest, creating a sense of movement.
  • Typography: From swirling fonts to “handwritten” printing, intricate typography is a perfect addition to the photos on your contemporary birth announcements.
  • Rustic: From barn-wood background textures to linen-look backdrops, we’ve got the aesthetic you want for your baby’s birth announcements.

Shape Situation

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!

Durable Keepsakes

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.
