If you are in the midst of a big baby boom, you might be slightly sick of seeing the same birth announcement come to your door. There is a sameness to some of those photo cards (most babies look similar two days old, after all). So if you want your announcement to stand out, try something special like these handmade letterpress announcements from Black Bird Press. They’re simple and sweet, and manage to be both timeless and modern at the same time. And if you still want people to see your little bundle of joy, try including a small black and white head shot with the card. That way, the picture has a chance of ending up in a frame instead of in a heap of other announcements.
Price: $250 for 50 cards
