Just wondering what folks are doing. I need to get on making one or having them made...

Are you doing/have you done birth announcements?

How many folks do you estimate you will send/sent them to?

Did you/will you design them? Have them designed for you? Or use a template?

Where did you/will you get them printed?


Share a pic of it if you have one or want to

Haven't started mine yet, but probably will print them at Walmart with a photo that we took. Probably will send out about 25 of them.

I didn't do any. Part of me wanted to but then decided not to because we didn't with Xander and I felt like it wouldn't be fair. lol. It's just something we never even thought of with Xander. They are really cute though.

I did mine through vistaprint since they were having 50% off their announcements a little bit ago. I only printed 30 so I will have to be a little stingy with them lol I could do what Harmony did and get more at walgreens though!

Aw! These are SO cute!! I am trying to decide how I want to do them.

Like you Robin, I want to be fair. And we did really amazing ones (aka: super expensive, "WTH were we thinking" ones!!) and I need to at least make some for Kieran. Lol. But we also had professional photos taken of Liam and just can not afford it this time around. So I had a friend take some shots this morning. But still...not sure what I am going to do for announcements. DH mentioned a site he knows of that is fairly cheap and he said he can design one to upload to it. So we might try that way.

Thanks for sharing what you folks did.
