Stylish Birth Announcements



by Liz O'Byrne - for™

As you browse through our extensive collection of, you will find the perfect baby photo announcements to showcase your new baby. Perhaps, however, you would prefer to use a different introduction than the one shown in our sample. Or you might want to add words where none exist in the sample design. Or you might want to remove introductory words altogether and let your photos, names and birth stats stand on their own for a clean, contemporary effect. No problem! The graphic designers at PhotoAffections can easily add, subtract, or modify words - that is, we carefully customize your baby announcements to suit your wording preferences. Just let us know when you place your order!

Choose wording on an announcement that matches your personality and individual sense of style. Many new moms like to keep things light and fun, while others prefer a somewhat more formal approach. To help you decide exactly how to word your cards, we've compiled a list of the introductions used in our designs. Following that is a second, more extensive list, which includes other options you might want to consider. You'll notice that the majority of the introductions on both lists are brief. That's because we firmly believe in maintaining proper balance between the photos, design elements, and wording on birth announcements. Wording should never overpower what you want people to notice first...that perfect face of your baby!

You'll probably know immediately which introduction is right for your custom birth announcement cards - which one best reflects "the real you." Once again: be careful not to put too many words on your cards. Being too wordy can make your announcements look crowded and detract from what's important -- your baby's adorable face and the pertinent details about his or her birth.

So have fun and go with your instincts!
