Are you going to or did you send out birth announcements?

If so where did you get them? What were they like?

I really was planning on it but we sent out a picture of her on our Christmas cards, so I don't think I'll send another announcement card.

We did! We got them with our picture package. I'll post a pic in just a bit but it will be a pic of a pic...I don't have it on computer. I love the announcements we got. Shutterfly also gave us $20 worth free from similac so I may make some up there also.

I cant wait to see it Rebecca.
I am going to send one that has several pictures on it but I am wanting to do it as inexpensive as possible since there will be so many to send and they arent cheap from most places.
I'm still looking around & online for the best price.
I'm hoping I can find in my computer program to do one.

We did not. I get an F as a mom for not doing birth announcements, NB pics, maternity pics. I really need to do something more!

Sorry it took so long. Here it is:



I know you can make them up on walmart.com and shutterfly has some really fairly priced and beautiful options also.

I thought I would share mine. I used the same pic I have in my siggy for the announcements and ordered them through tinyprints. They had 20% off running through the 7th(?) I think.

Rebecca, I love the plum color of your announcements! Just beautiful.

We got 12 free with our picture package, so 12 people will get one. LOL

We did a birth announcement/Christmas card combo this year, although in the craziness of welcoming a newborn, I ordered them later than I wanted to so didn't send them out until 12/26

Trying to link to our actual announcement with her photo, but am coming up unsuccessful - I ordered this one through Tinyprints though, and they came out great...was really pleased with them!

Oh thanks I had no idea Costco or Walmart does them. I'll have to look at them.

I am looking at this one at Shutterfly Clever Cadence Pink 4x8 Photo Card by Shutterfly | Shutterfly

But I found Smilebox I can make my own but not sure what I'd print them on to make them look professionally done. Just photo paper?

I'm so anxious to do these but I have to wait on newborn pics.

That's a pretty one! Yeah you could do it on photo paper if you have a good printer. Walmart has a printer thing that you can use in store if you bring a disc with you if you can't do it at home. It allows for printing different sizes like 8x11 or any other smaller sizes too.

I looked on Costco online and am going to go that route. I found a really cute one and it has 3 pictures on it like I wanted and I can get 50 for $14.99

Now I just need me pictures. I'm so impatient now.
