As soon as you’ve received the news of your new baby, you want to share it with the world. Announcing your new baby is exciting, but make sure you do it right. A big moment deserves special correspondence that your loved ones can keep and cherish for years to come. Finding the right stationery for your announcement requires some decision making, including whether or not to disclose the sex of your baby. From pink and blue address labels to monographed cardstock, here are a few helpful ideas to make your new baby announcement even more special.
Before you send out the new baby announcements, you first want to decide on how much information to disclose. For instance, even if you’ve learned the sex of your baby already, you may not wish to share that information quite yet. Other parents, however, let their loved one know right away. However, there are also ways to subtly hint at the sex without explicitly stating it, such as using blue address labels and text to suggest it’s a boy. Though there’s no set rule, letting friends and family in on the gender of your new baby can be helpful for purchasing baby shower gifts.
When you’re ready to create your new baby announcements, be sure to utilize a design template that reflects your tastes. For a more understated look, a simple monogrammed card with the birth announcement does nicely. For a more gender-specific style, beautiful blue or pink border patterns are also available. Complete your announcement with matching custom envelopes and address labels. Give your friends and family a shared memory they can hold on to, straight from your hand to theirs.
When you’re expecting a new child, you have a lot on your mind. Let your friends and family share the experience with you so they can help you in this exciting time. Design announcement stationery that suits your style.
"The labels look just as pictured. The only changes I made were to capitalize a few letters. Several friends have commented on how nice they are."
"This classic design address label is perfect and it is of good quality. We purchased this for our infant's stationary...he is set!"
"I used these with my son's name for his 2nd birthday party invitations. I was able to put both initials on it and liked the look better than the single initial."
"personalized these with a picture of 3 of my kids to send letters to friend about our quick unexpected move. Kids and parents both loved them! They can now be penpals and remember them by the picture!"
"Love this label - it is simple and classy yet unique. I keep using it with updated pictures of my little one. If the color scheme doesn't match the photo, I simply change it to sepia. One note: The label is definitely larger than typical return labels. It doesn't bother me and makes more of a statement, but it may not be ideal for very small envelopes."
