Say it with music – Beautiful video birth announcements


Warning! If you are feeling clucky, even a teeny, tiny bit clucky, it’s probably better that you don’t visit Cool Dog Productions to look at their video birth announcements. Maybe it’s the choice of music soundtrack or perhaps it’s all those close-ups of little feet and curled fingers, but honestly, one look at these videos and I’m back to where I was almost seven years ago – longing for some newborn action!

Cool Dog Productions create birth announcements from your photos with all the vital details accompanied by some slick graphics and music for the perfect finishing touch. Cool Dog advertises the fact that video announcements are eco-friendly, easy to distribute and are cost effective, particularly compared to the average announcement placed in a newspaper. All good points and true, however I think you only need watch one of the videos to be totally won over by the beautiful production.

Cool Dog videos come in a variety of styles from ‘classic’ to ‘cool’. You choose your theme, your music and send in approximately 30 photos and/or 15 minutes of video footage and they’ll do the rest. The announcement is sent to friends and family via email and, as Cool Dog own the licences to the music, announcements can be uploaded to Facebook and YouTube.

Announcements are US$149 and obviously there are no shipping costs!
