One of the sweetest ways to welcome a new baby is with a gorgeous birth announcement.

Sure, you can announce your little one’s arrival on social media, but there’s something about holding a picture in your hand that makes it that much better. (Plus, last I checked you can’t put a Facebook photo on a magnet on the fridge.)

That’s why I was so excited to work with Basic Invite to get out our birth announcements for Sicilia!

Check out the adorable announcement we put together to welcome our little stinker, and browse through all of their adorable templates and designs HERE! And you can get 40% OFF your birth announcements by using the code “BIRTH40.” All other purchases are 15% off using code “15FF51.”

With other online invitation sites, you choose from set designs, and the only unique element is your photo and text. So if you don’t like one part of the card, you just have to move on to the next option.

But with Basic Invite, you can customize colors, patterns and even placement of text on your special announcement. And best of all, it was super easy, even for graphically-design-challenged people like me. 😀

 

My favorite feature? You can customize envelope inserts! So when our friends and family open the invite, they see this first…

Then the announcement itself:

And of course, what birth announcement would be complete without an extra picture of the little bambino, just in case you didn’t absorb the cuteness from the first pic. 😉

Besides the ability to change the color of almost any element on their cards, there are some other things that set Basic Invite apart from other online invitation retailers.

Customize with Color

After you select your design, change the color of almost any element on it and preview instantly online. The options are almost endless.

Custom Samples

Order a printed sample of your actual announcement or invitation so you can see how it feels in your hands, how it will print, and you can feel the quality of the paper.

40+ Envelope Colors

No longer are you forced to pick either white, off-white or metallic. Choose from over 40 colors so that your invitation and its accompanying envelope coordinate perfectly. Also, all their envelopes are “peel and seal,” so no risk of paper cuts on your tongue!

Free Address Collection Service

If you’re anything like me, the last thing you want to do with a new baby is address 50+ envelopes. No need to do that with Basic Invite. In three simple steps, you can get your envelopes printed for free. Just share a link, collect your addresses and wait for your addressed envelopes to arrive! It just takes three simple steps: Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing.

So cute, right? Give them a check for your next big event. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
