FAQS - Birth Announcements
- I’d like to address my envelopes before my baby arrives. Can you send them ahead?
Yes. Here’s how:
- Choose a design.
Browse our collection of birth announcements and select your favorite design.
- Personalize your card and upload a placeholder photo.
- Select your quantity on Tab 1, and then click "Personalize Now"
- Personalize your card. If you are ordering a photo card and don’t have a photo ready yet, upload placeholder photo. Use your own, or use this one.
- Enter your text. If you are unsure of your text, e.g. the time and date of your baby’s birth, enter TBD.
- In the Special Instructions Box, let us know if you would like to see a proof of the card with your placeholder text and/or photo, or if you would like us to wait until your updated information is ready (you receive 2 free proofs with your order; thereafter they are $10 per round).
- Select "Send my envelopes ahead" on the tab marked "Envelopes."
- Click "Send my envelopes ahead." If you would like the envelopes to be printed with your return address, or you would like personalized address labels, select these options and enter your return address.
