"This was a super easy template to use and it looked great."
"Beautiful photo thank you cards but the small photo on the back was not as clear."
"Received so many compliments on these birth announcements. Only thing I did not like was it was printed on photo paper instead of card stock."
"Oh my gosh these came out so much better than we thought they would. Our friends and families loved getting these in the mail. Highly recommend this one!"
"I don't usually write review but I just absolutely love how the cards came out! I also tried to order from another website but was told my order was cancel a day later! Shutterfly made it extremely easy to create this and the cards arrived in a timely manner. I just wish they weren't so expensive or maybe offer a bigger discount... but the bottom line is that I will definitely use Shutterfly again!"
Have you always wanted to announce your baby’s birth in a creative way? Thankfully, there are some unique and fun things you can do to make your announcements extraordinary without spending a lot of money. Here are a few of our favorite ideas.
A pregnancy photo series announcement is easy to make as long as you prepare in advance. Choose a spot in your home or outdoors where you want to take your photo series, then begin with a picture of yourself holding a pregnancy test. Next, when you are 6-9 months along in your pregnancy, take another photo in the same position, in the same location.
Finally, conclude your photo series with a picture of yourself holding your new arrival. Arrange your photos in succession on a customized birth announcement. Foil birth announcements are a good choice because they help add visual interest and bling.
One of the most precious photo op moments you will ever encounter is when your older children meet their new sibling for the first time. Capitalize on this once-in-a-lifetime occasion by taking plenty of pictures of this first meeting. Choose one of your favorite pictures and arrange it on foil birth announcements, or choose several pictures and create a photo collage card.
A very unique way to announce your baby’s birth is to send your closest friends and family a customized mug with photos of your new addition. Not only is this a fun way to announce a new birth, but it also makes a useful gift.
This adorable idea is perfect if you have a toddler at home. Purchase a cute wicker basket, line it with a soft blanket and place the new baby inside. Set the basket on your doorstep and have your toddler answer the door. Snap your photo the moment the toddler sees his or her sibling on the doorstep.
Taking unique photos for birth announcements doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. These simple ideas are easy to recreate and will be adored by your friends and family.
