Birth announcement

Recently a very good friend of mine asked if I would do the honors of designing a simple birth announcement for their new baby girl. Of course I was delighted. There is something extra fun about designing announcements and invitations, although I often get somewhat nervous designing for friends. It is just so important that they end up with something they like.

In this case, I did two versions – one in traditional pink with a classic black-and-white photo and a more modern pink and brown version (shown above) which was ultimately chosen. I just love how the card highlights Ava wrapped all snuggly in that gorgeous pink and brown baby blanket.

Best of all, the cost of printing these announcements were a steal compared to specialty companies which usually charge $1.99+ per card (not including shipping). After doing a little internet research we settled on where we purchased (50) 4×6 recycled matte postcards with pre-printed return address on the back for less than 50¢ a piece, including shipping! I’m pretty sure we’re going to use the same printing service when we design our own this winter. 🙂
