Baby Announcements

By: John Weis

It's taken nine months to get this far, and you have every right to be more than proud of your newest family member! But with all of the work that comes along with being a new parent, whether you're a first-timer or an old pro, finding the time to visit or even call everyone personally is next to impossible. Sending out baby birth announcements is the fastest, easiest and most convenient way to share your joy with the people in your life.

Believe it or not, just about everyone on your list of is very much aware of what it takes to bring home a new addition and get settled into your new life. On the other hand, they also want to know all of the "details" like gender, length and weight of your little one. Baby birth announcements offer the ideal medium to making those around you happy while keeping your adjustment period as stress free as possible for you, the parents. You can pick out the design of your announcement ahead of time, decide whether or not you'll have a newborn photo involved and leave all of the "unknown" information open until after the big day arrives. Remember, the good birth announcement printing companies will allow you to pre-order your selection, but the best will ship the envelopes portion to you ahead of time so that you can fill out the names and addresses of the recipients before your baby arrives. That way, all you'll need to do to finish your baby birth announcements after junior comes home is to properly notify your printing company of choice the details of the birth, place them in the previously stamped and addressed envelopes, and place them in your mailbox and put the flag up.

Don't forget about the latest variations from traditional baby announcements. For the addition of a second child to your family, the latest trend to assist on the adjustment period for the older child is the "sibling announcement", reminding the world that being a new big brother or sister is a very important part in your growing family, all while sharing the exciting news of your new addition. Gender specific and photo announcements will always be favorites amongst traditionalists.

But before you get your heart broken, say if your chosen printer doesn't pre-send the envelopes, or the design you've chosen isn't available for "quick-ship" options, do all of your homework on a few companies before you make up your mind on a design. Keep an open mind when deciding on the finished product, as your announcement should be as original as your child is.
