"We sent these out as our baby girl's birth announcements/Christmas cards and we were very pleased with the cards when we received them from Shutterfly 3 days after we ordered them. As usual, Shutterfly was having a deal but the nice thing is that they allow you to use more than one coupon code if it pertains to your order. We've ordered cards from Shutterfly before and have gotten many compliments and we've heard a few so far this year. We also used a black and white photo of our daughter as is used in the example and it looks fabulous."
"absolutely loved the colors and quality of the product. The card showed the true essence of my baby's first Christmas! I gave the card as a thank you to those who gave baby her first Christmas gift."
"I ordered these and I was extremely happy with the result! I even received them very quickly and I was glad because I could not wait to share the announcements with my family and friends! I even had friends ask me where I made them and I recommended them to come to shutterfly because I was very impressed with the quality and efficiency of my order! They came out so beautiful!!!"
"Overall I am happy with the announcement but the picture I picked for it looks too washed out with the background on the card. I love my babies picture and I like the card but I'm not happy with the combination."
"These birth annoucements are printed on sturdy paper and look very professional. Worth the price. The ordering process was easy and it arrived earlier than they said."
Of all the events that we look forward to with great excitement and anticipation, perhaps the most unrivaled are the holidays and the arrival of a baby. Imagine how much more joy might be felt if both were combined! If the doctor happens to deliver around the same time as Santa Claus this year, you get the unique privilege of including a baby announcement alongside your holiday cards. This gives you the perfect excuse to get away from the traditional pastel pinks and baby blues traditionally featured in announcements and use holiday themes and colors to tie your little one’s arrival into the inherent excitement of the season.
We at Shutterfly have all the tools and resources needed to create exceptional holiday birth announcements. Simply upload a photo of your little one from any digital device (we never delete photos, so you can easily reuse yours down the road for events such as christenings or baptisms). If you’re stuck on how to create your card, we have a page dedicated to offering ideas and inspiration for crafting the perfect announcement.
You have no shortage of options when it comes to creating your holiday birth announcements with us. You can customize your announcements for either a baby boy or girl (or with a neutral theme, if you’re not sure yet). Each of our announcements is made using a flat print at almost any size and with whatever trim you’d like. If you’re concerned about their durability, don’t be; you can choose to print yours on durable materials such as:
Our selection of holiday birth announcements has been created by some of the most popular greeting card and memento manufacturers in the business, including:
The holidays are already a hectic time, so too are the days and weeks immediately after having a baby. The tension may just be amped up even more when the two events coincide. That’s why we recommend having your holiday baby announcements done well in advance of the big day. This allows you to send them out shortly after your new little one arrives while relieving you of the stress of putting them together after returning from the hospital. We offer shipping options that ensure your cards will arrive within a couple of weeks at the latest. You can even choose to have your order mailed with your envelopes pre-addressed, or have them shipped directly to your recipients.
With the holidays forevermore being linked to the birth of your baby, you’re almost guaranteed to have several memorable future seasons in store for you and your family. Let Shutterfly help make that first one all the more memorable with lovely holiday birth announcements.
