Announcing the birth
When you have given birth you can’t wait to tell the world. However, all of a sudden those plans you made in the calm days of late pregnancy tend to go out of the window as the chaos of a new baby descends. Whether you enlist the help of the proud grandmother to get writing all those new baby cards for you, or you set aside just a little me-time when visitors are on hand to help you out, choosing the right way to make your baby announcement is one of those little pleasures that might almost compensate for the sleepless nights.
Every stationer stocks beautiful announcement cards these days but treat yourself to a browse online to find one of the many companies who make personalised announcement cards. You can bookmark your first choice of card maker before your baby arrives and then put in the order once the good news can be shared.
The Royal Mail can create ‘Smilers’ stamps just for you. They come specially printed with a regular first class stamp alongside a stamp featuring the photograph of your choice. Upload a photograph of your new baby onto their stamp ordering page online and see how good it looks before ordering. A nice extra touch when sending out your cards. www.royalmail.com.smilers
Make the most of your announcement cards by choosing a company who can make bespoke photocards with your baby on.
If you want to mark the announcement for grandparents, get a special photograph mounted onto canvas or choose a wall hanging with an inscription of what your baby’s name means.
