Birth Announcement Etiquette Tips

Here are a few etiquette tips to help you with buying and sending your birth announcements.

Best Places to Buy Birth Announcements

Since your baby’s birth it such a milestone occasion, consider going all out and creating your birth announcements on a custom card and invite website. Capture your child’s beauty with a photo and add the photo to a custom birth announcement. Then use the baby announcement wording samples provided here to inscribe your card with meaningful message.

After designing your birth announcement, design matching envelopes, envelope liners, and address labels to go along with them. Purchasing a matching stationery set for your birth announcements will leave a positive impression on friends and family and give your baby the stylish entrance they deserves. A matching guestbook, if you’re having a reception, is a big hit.

Who to Send Birth Announcements To?

You can send your birth announcements to whoever you like. Close friends and family should definitely get one, but you’re also welcome to send them to acquaintances and coworkers too. Your baby’s birth is big, life-changing news, so feel free to share it with anyone you think will be interested in knowing.

When Should Birth Announcements Be Sent Out?

Ideally, your baby’s birth announcements should be sent out immediately after your baby’s birth.

A great way to save yourself time and ensure your birth announcements are ready ASAP, is by designing them ahead of time on a custom card company, like Save your design and simply hit order when you’re ready after your baby’s birth.

You can also save time by opting for mailing service, a service where the card company will send your announcements directly to your friends and family for you. Learn more about mailing service on

If you’re planning on including a photo of your baby on your birth announcements, it’s if your announcements are sent out late. See this post about Newborn Photos and Birth Announcements for more information.
