Let’s be honest… In the joyful, yet sleepless, weeks after the birth of your baby, who really has time to think about choosing baby announcements? We understand! We put together a few insider tips to getting those baby announcements out in the mail so that you can focus your time on more important things – like kissing those baby toes… or showering.
Pre-Select your Birth Announcement Whether shopping online or working with your local stationery store, pre-select a birth announcement before the baby’s arrival. Searching through numerous baby announcements after the baby’s arrival will mean less time staring at your beautiful newborn. Even narrowing down your choices to 2 or 3 is a big post-baby time saver! If you’ve decided to keep the baby’s gender a surprise, you can choose a baby announcement that is available in pink or blue.
Pre-Ship your Envelopes At Page, we offer the option to pre-ship your envelopes to give you a super time saver for after the baby is born. You can stamp and address those envelopes so they are ready to go. Once your birth announcements arrive, it’s as simple as a walk to the mailbox.
If you’ve decided to go with our baby announcements, don’t forget to keep your focus!
Focus on the baby. Friends and family can see his room, his crib and his favorite snuggle toy on Facebook. The birth announcement photo should focus on that sweet face and those kissable cheeks.
Focus on quality. Camera phones and smart phone photo-editing apps are great! But, not always for high-resolution printing. If you aren’t using a professional photographer, grab your real camera – remember those? Or ask a friend who is camera savvy to help you get a great pic. The quality will make a difference that you’ll be happy with.
