"Lovely! We were so pleased with how the announcement turned out."
"I didn't realize this card was made out of very nice card stock. For whatever reason I kept thinking it was out if photo paper, but that would not make since, being 2-sided. While it was a little bit more per card than I normally spend, it was definitely worth the money for what you get!"
"Love these cards! I've used Shutterfly for both my baby's announcements and thank you cards and they always turn out gorgeous! Very happy with the shipping times and customer service. Just wish they had a Canadian division of Shutterfly."
"Love the announcement. The paper was great as was the quality!"
Your new little princess has finally arrived, and you can’t want to share the news with the people you care about most. Should you immediately call your friends and family or should you wait and send out adorable customized baby girl birth announcements in the mail? There is no single right way to announce a baby’s birth, and here are six ideas to get you started.
Those who are closest to you deserve to be the first to hear the good news. That means parents, siblings and close friends should get a phone call from you soon after the baby is born. Just make sure you don’t call in the middle of the night and wake them up unless they have specifically asked you to do so. If you know that extended family would like the courtesy of a phone call as well, but you don’t have the time to call them all, delegate other family members to do the calling for you.
Creating a baby blog documenting your little one’s arrival and first days is a fun way to let more distant friends learn about the exciting news. A blog is also a fun way to keep close friends and family members updated on your baby’s exciting progress and milestones.
Nothing beats sending traditional paper birth announcements to the people you love. Not only are birth announcements fun to create, but they also double as adorable mementos that can be easily scrapbooked to provide endless memories. Double the cuteness factor with customized address labels and personalized postage stamps that complement your announcements.
Sending a text is one of the quickest and easiest ways to announce your baby’s birth. Just remember to include a photo of the new little lady so your family members can admire her and argue about which relative she resembles the most.
