What customers have to say about our Birth Announcements

January 25, 2019

A Hit With All the Family!

"We used this card as a birth announcement and thank you card for our baby shower attendees. It's on a nice heavy cardstock, and the print was super clear. With my first order there was a smear on the return address on the back of the envelope, but no big deal. With the first order I also didn't receive the blank envelopes I ordered. The second order everything was perfect. I would highly recommend!"

Gender Neutral Birth Announcements

Having trouble deciding what to say on your birth announcements? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many new parents find that they know very little about birth announcement etiquette when it comes time to tell their friends and family about their new arrival. Here is some important information about what should be included in all gender-specific and gender neutral birth announcements, as well as some ideas for optional creative wording.

Imperative Information

The following information should appear on every birth announcement so friends and family know the basic details about the occasion:

• Date and time of birth
• Baby’s name (if you have decided on a name – if not, you might be interested in checking out our baby name generator!)
• Weight
• Length
• Birth location
• Names of the parents and siblings

In addition to this basic information, you can also include the names of the baby’s grandparents as well as the name of the doctor of midwife who delivered the baby. If you have decided to keep a baby blog, you may want to put the URL on the invitations as well.

What You Shouldn’t Include

If your birth experience was extra traumatic or extra beautiful, your birth announcement is not the place to share the story. Save this conversation for in-person chats with those closest to you.

Creative Birth Announcement Wording Ideas

Here comes the fun part. Once you have written down all of the imperative information for your announcements, you can then come up with creative ways to write the introductory lines. Some fun ideas include “Our hearts are overflowing with love as we welcome (baby name) to the world” and “Introducing our new little prince/princess… (baby name)”. You can also write the announcement from the perspective of one of the baby’s siblings.

When you are coming up with introductory wording ideas, keep the design of your announcements in mind. For example, if your cards have a picture of your baby in a basket on the front, you might say something like “Special Delivery…” or “The most perfect gift…”

As icing on the cake, you can even place personalized postage stamps on your invitations to tie everything together and create the perfect, customized touch.
