Creating Unique Birth Announcements… Easy as 1, 2, 3

April 12, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
New parents give a lot of thought into creating the perfect birth announcement. They want one that will be cherished by family and friends for years to come, and hold that prominent spot in the baby book.

There are so many choices that exist for birth announcements from the modern to the traditional and everything in between that it can get overwhelming whether you are a newbie parent or a seasoned one. No matter if it is pink or blue (or gender neutral), one picture or multiple ones to show off the precious little bundle of joy, the birth announcement possibilities just seem endless.

Now PhotoAffections makes the process a lot easier!

Here are a few tips and tricks to help you create a birth announcement masterpiece. Remember, anyone can do them and even on a budget (and a timeline). There are a few factors that you must decide on before the fun can begin, such as: size, price and overall color scheme. Pick a design that suits your style, personalize it with a message and/or add a sentimental closing.

One photo or multiple photos?

While one photo takes center stage it's nice to include more photos for variety, and to show off that tiny little being. Start with the basics and necessary items to include on the announcement.

Make sure the name is prominent!

You've consulted the baby name books as if they were the Bible and now you get to announce the name to the world. Don't let the other items to note on the announcement including the date and time born, weight and length, drown out what is most important.

Choosing introductory words.

Opening with, "Welcomed By," to "Proud Parents," or "Welcomed With Love," are just a few that you could use. Just remember there is no right or wrong way to do this, it all comes down to your choice of design and style. What a great way to welcome the baby into the family! You'll be sure to receive many compliments from your little one's birth announcement from friends and family. It is one thing to complete the design of the birth announcement online but it will look even more beautiful when PhotoAffections ships it off, and you receive it in person. Happy designing!
