Birth Announcements - Paper or Virtual?

digital birth announcement

Our birth announcement for Izaiah

With my first kid, I remember the stress of trying to make sure that I had birth announcements chosen before delivery, ready to be printed as soon as those vital details of birth date, birth time, birth weight and birth height were known – and of course, the beloved newborn photo. That was 8 years ago.

With my 2nd child E, we did a virtual announcement via email. With the 3rd, we sent a birth announcement link out via Facebook and email to a few family members. Having a background in design, I just whipped something up and sent it out – done and the photos are new, not from a day ago a week ago. Not to mention saving in the expense of printing and mailing.

Thinking back, I can’t tell you the last time I received a paper birth announcement. And the only time I receive paper birthday invitations anymore, is when they are handed out to a school class for my daughter and son’s friends.  Oh the digital world we live in.

Here are a few digital invitation and birth announcement options for a professional looking announcement done via email.
