Think ahead when planning birth announcement cards
Baby announcement cards are the best way to share with all your loved ones the joy of a new baby. They become one of the first keepsakes of your baby’s life, something that will be cherished for years to come.
Sending out cards to announce the arrival of your new family member are a great way make your friends and family feel more involved in the birth of your new baby, especially if many of them live far away and might not get a chance to come visit you and the new baby anytime soon.
When it comes to preparing for the arrival of a new baby there are so many different things to think about, so to ensure that you don’t leave anything out or have any last minute stress, it’s a good idea to start planning early. Baby announcement cards are likely to get pushed down the list of things to do once the baby arrives.
At Paperlust, we don’t want you to feel any stress when planning your baby announcement and we will help you with all the details so your cards are perfect and ready to go when you need them. There’s no real rule as to when you actually have to send them out, it’s really up to you and when you feel you have the time. It can be weeks after the birth or a few months, people will understand that you’re busy with a new baby and won’t be expecting to receive a card straight away, so don’t let yourself get stressed about not sending them out straight away.
If you do intend to send out baby announcement cards start thinking early about the style you might like, who you’ll send them to and when, so you don’t have to worry about them when you’re busy spending time bonding with your new baby. You want to minimise things to worry about, so having them already chosen and ready to go will make things a lot easy and will mean they can get sent out more quickly as well.
Choosing a theme for your baby announcement cards
Once you’ve decided to send out birth announcement cards, it can then be overwhelming choosing a design from the many available. A good place to start is to think if you want to go with a particular theme. Have a look through the different beautiful designs on offer to find the one you love. Maybe you want to go with a particular style or colour scheme? Something that follows along your own personal tastes.
There are plenty of fun, colourful styles to choose from, both gender specific and neutral, to suit all new parents. Our designers can help you with a personalised baby announcement cards, so you end up with a special design you’re happy with.
If you’ve already chosen baby shower cards, then you can look through our baby announcement cards to find a cute style that will match the theme you’ve already started with to keep everything cohesive.
A lot of people choose to include a picture of the baby on the announcement, but that also means you might not be sending the cards out until a few months after the birth (as you’ll have to make time to take the photo) so keep that in mind. If you’re not including a photo of the baby on the card, and you don’t have to, you can choose a simple, sweet design that is in line with your personal style.
Baby announcement cards are generally kept by the recipients for years as a piece of memory of the baby’s birth, so choose a style that you love.
Who to send them to
Now it’s probably a good idea to sit down with your partner and come up with a list of everyone you want to send a baby announcement card to. It’s up to you who receives a card, whether it’s just for family members, loved ones overseas or even if you want to send them to co-workers.
You don’t need to send a card to every single person you know, but think of the people in your life who you would like to have one and the people who would truly appreciate receiving a baby announcement card. Just remember for the people who you are really close to, it’s likely that you’ll call them or they’ll check up on you to find out about the baby, so they won’t be so concerned about getting an announcement card right away.
Anyone who has sent you cards or gifts congratulating you on the new baby, and any guests who attended your baby shower, if you had one, should receive an announcement card as a nice gesture of thanks and of how much they mean to you.
When choosing how many cards to order it might be a good idea to order a few spares ones as well, just in case. At least then if you realise you’ve forgotten someone later on, or maybe someone asks for an extra, you’ll have some ready. Be sure to get one for yourself as well!
What to write on baby announcement cards
The wording that you include on the birth announcement card can be as minimal or detailed as you like. Whether you just want the baby’s name and date of birth or you want to include more, like the parents’ names and a little message that the new family is doing well, or even the baby’s weight, it’s completely up to you what you want it to say on the card.
The message you have on the card could include wording like:
• We are pleased to welcome…
• We are delighted to announce the birth of…
• Welcoming with love our beautiful baby girl/boy…
There are plenty of different wording options you can choose, or even create something unique and personal yourself. Just remember to keep it short and sweet. An announcement card doesn’t need to go into too much detail, just the important things that people will want to know at the start.
Choose 'wording' that you feel comfortable with, that suits your personality, whether that’s formal or more casual. The announcement cards will reflect your excitement at the new addition to your family, excitement that your loved ones are sure to share.
The designers at Paperlust will help you get the wording just right on your baby announcement cards, to ensure that your baby’s introduction to your loved ones will be perfect.
