When I had my first baby nearly nine years ago one of the things in my labour bag was a handwritten list of people to call after the baby was born and a big bag of coins for the pay phone. It seems positively prehistoric given that nowadays birth announcements are mostly made via mobile phone, text message and email.
Check out the online birth announcements at Nursery Notice – there are dozens of designs to choose from but all have a distinctive preppy style about them. There’s not a single teddy bear, rattle or picture of a stork anywhere to be found at Nursery Notice. Instead, it’s simple geometric patterns in bold colour combinations.
Personalise your Nursery Notice with birth details and photographs and your announcement is emailed to friends and family, who can then leave their special messages in your guestbook.
The basic Nursery Notice costs US$34 and is available for friends and family to view for one month. You can add extra months if you wish or purchase your Nursery Notice on CD for a lasting copy of your birth announcement and guestbook.
