Very few events are as exciting, as memorable or as joyous as the birth of a new baby. Birth announcements are a great way to share the details of your baby’s arrival with your family and friends.
Birth announcements should announce the name of your baby to those who may not know, along with their date and time of birth, weight and length. You should also include where they were born. These special cards not only serve a wonderful purpose by allowing friends and family to celebrate your child’s birth with you, they are often kept as a keepsake for years to come.
Parents have many options when selecting and designing birth announcements. Two of the most popular forms are customized birth announcements and printable birth announcements.
Customized birth announcements are something you might get from a company like American Stationery. They are custom printed for you with your new baby’s information on a design you have chosen.
Printable birth announcements, on the other hand, are announcements you print on your home computer. You select the design or style you like most, fill in the appropriate information, and when you receive the stock you print your announcements from home and mail them out.
You can also go the extra mile in designing your birth announcements and load a digital photo of your new addition. Talk about a keepsake! Adding a picture to your birth announcements make them all the more personal. You would still include all your newborn’s information on the announcement, but adding a photo also gives distant friends and family the opportunity to see your new baby as well.
