When you add a child to your family anywhere from September or October to December, you may want to opt for New Year birth announcements. Doing so is a way for you to wish others a happy upcoming year while announcing your own lovely bit of news. Here are a few tips for such announcements.
From snowflakes, snowmen, Christmas trees, ornaments and much more, there are many elements from this specific time of the year that you can use to infuse a New Year’s feel into the birth announcement. You could also opt for opening text such as, “Happy New Year!” or “Happy 2017!” or whatever the year is. Alternatively, you could open with a baby-related introduction such as “Blessed,” and close your announcement with text such as, “Wishing everyone a happy new year.” Many of these approaches function similarly for Christmas-card-type birth announcements as well.
Another way to infuse a wintery feel into the announcement is to use photos featuring winter or snow scenes, for example, a family photo with a snowy backdrop, or a baby dressed in Santa-type garb.
One fun way to make your announcement stand out is to make it in the form of a Christmas tree ornament. For instance, you could pick out a frame for a photo of the baby as well as a ribbon for hanging. Fortunately, Tiny Prints makes this process easy.
If you want something simpler, you could opt for a New Year’s address label to set the tone for the announcement; other ways to do this include personalized postage stamps. To save even more time, you may want to enclose a simple thank-you note with the birth announcement for people who sent you baby gifts and/or Christmas gifts. It’s great to take advantage of a timely birth when you can.

The customer service at Tiny Prints is what has more ordering over and over. My first experience was about a year ago - my sister was graduating from high school and she placed her own order and accidentally messed up some wording. Tiny Prints helped me rectify the problem quickly and kindly. With this order, I got a personal, handwritten note from Luke, which I thought was a nice touch!"
