Cool Ways to Design Photo Birth Announcements

Photo birth announcements are new parents' proud communications that they've brought a new bundle of joy into the world; a baby whose life will be shared with family, friends, and other loved ones. And just as all babies are unique in their own special way, so can be your photo birth announcements. The following list several cool ways to design photo birth announcements that will transcend simple communications to become frame-and-scrapbook-worthy keepsakes for decades to come.

Movie poster photo birth announcements

Take a photo of your baby and create a special design that looks like a movie poster. With clever plays on words and a handful of movie poster jargon you can come up with a fun and unique movie poster birth announcement that you'll be thrilled to send and your loved ones will love to receive.

Baseball card photo birth announcements

You could use baseball, football, or another sport as a theme for your photo birth announcements, placing your baby front and center with “stats” such as length, weight, time of birth, name, “position,” and other fun facts you want to share about your baby.

Ticket photo birth announcements

Design your photo birth announcements to look like special event tickets that feature your baby and all the wonderful information proud new parents love to share. Create an event “venue” and time to mark when visitors are welcome to come see your new baby, either at your hospital, birthing center, or home.

VIP pass photo birth announcements

Similar to event ticket photo birth announcements, you could design a unique photo birth announcement that look similar to special VIP passes and send them to your closest circle of supporters: grandparents, siblings, and friends.

Newsletter/newspaper photo birth announcements

Design your photo birth announcements to look like the headline page of a newspaper or newsletter. Write up a striking news feature to accompany your baby's photo or series of photos, and detail information about your baby and your baby's family: siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc. A photo birth announcement designed with this theme is sure to become a commemorative treasured family keepsake.

How to design and print photo birth announcements

If you're not sure how to get started creating your own special photo baby announcements, relax. It's an easy process, even for novice designers. Start by choosing your style of photo birth announcement and downloading a free layout template, which is pre-formatted for perfect printing and contains guidelines for proper design positioning. Add your baby's photo, text, any special design elements, stock images, clip art, etc., then upload your design to be printed.

You'll want to print your photo birth announcements on premium paper stocks, including thick 16-point paper, smooth 15-point velvet with soft-touch coating or 13-point 100% recycled matte, from a state-of-the-art online printing company that uses eco-friendly, vibrant, and fade-resistant soy inks. With a bit of creativity, you can craft incredible photo birth announcements that are as unique as your new bundle of joy.
