Will you be sending out birth announcements? yes
How many will you send? not set number... i have been compling a list of my family and getting his mom to get me a list of his family/friends to send them to
Will they include pictures of the baby? yup
Will you make/print/buy them? My sister is going to take our photos and then design one for me, but I also will get someone in my DDC to design one for me and then send out some of each I think.

I am still trying to figure out what I like. My sister keeps saying 2-sided but thats silly to me. Its going to be something people put on their fridge. So one-sided is plenty. I am thinking 2 (maybe 3 pics) of the baby and just her name, weight, length (i guess) and time of birth and who her parents are (since she will have his last name and not mine).

Will you be sending out birth announcements? Yeppers!
How many will you send? Oh gosh I haven't counted in a long time but quite a few I am sure.
Will they include pictures of the baby? Yes I always include a picture and sometimes I will include a picture with siblings if I have time.
Will you make/print/buy them? Depending on how much time I have I will try to prep them before she gets here and send them out. I made my last two children's, but may end up buying them this time.

I would really like to make mine, but I see the time growing shorter and shorter...

I've done announcements for all four kids, and I will for this little man--I just do up a pic with stats from Costco and mail or hand them out--I usually do them when baby is a week old

That's what I'm leaning toward too, Marie! Only at Walmart because we don't have a Costco

Will you be sending out birth announcements? Yes, and we can't wait!
How many will you send? We'll be sending them out to all of our extended family for sure, and then a limited number of close friends and coworkers. All in all, we're probably looking at 80 or so.
Will they include pictures of the baby? Yes, definitely!
Will you make/print/buy them? We're looking at getting them printed. I'm planning on getting magnets made that everyone can keep on their fridge. We'll likely do the same for our christening invitations magnets as well.

Nope. Never understood the point of them I guess. Seems like one more thing to spend money on.
