How many birth announcements did you get?

I know everyone has their own lists-- but just curious how many other people got. I feel like 100 is a good round number.

Re: How many birth announcements did you get?

alwqays get more than you think youll need.. I put one of my dds in her room in a frame, one in her baby book and then i realized i had no more left for her scrapbook.. When I was at my Docs for my glucose test the other day I saw they still had her announcement on their board .. so I stole it back Chat Icon . so I can put in her scrapbook.

did you get coordinating ones??

I think I am going to mix and match stuff-- and "borrow" a Vera Wang design and make myself to cut down on costs. Otherwise I can see dropping $500+ on all this personalized stationary...

They aren't coordinated....I mixed and matched.
I went the easier personalized stationary route. It cost less than $500, but not by a ton, lol.

Re: How many birth announcements did you get?

I'm ordering just 25 from inababycarriage.com

Normally I would do it myself since I'm pretty adept with Photoshop but it's easier just uploading a photo for some really professional ones if you're not ordering that many.

They have the most amazing designs so it's hard to decide! Here's just 2 samples....

Re: How many birth announcements did you get?

I am embarrassed to say I did 250 announcements and 250 thanks yous. We have a lot of friends and family to send them to! Chat Icon

The printer made a mistake though and accidently printed 500 announcements Chat Icon Chat Icon Anyone need wallpaper for their house? Chat Icon Chat Icon

I ordered them through my girlfriend. If anyone needs announcements/thank yous/invitations, they do a great job! We love ours Chat Icon Chat Icon
This is our announcement (not our info, of course!):

For our first, we got 50 and that was plenty for us. My family is teeny-tiny.
