Have you recently welomed a new arrival into your life? If so, congratulations! The likelihood now is that you want to share news and details of your new arrival to those who mean most to you or who have supported you right throughout the pregnancy or birth.
For many new parents, they would choose to do this in a very public way, via social media perhaps. Others, would simply draft an e-mail and send it to their inner circle. For those who want to send a more personal and meaningful message, sending a baby card can prove to be a really nice touch.
Anyone who has supported you both, bought gifts or wished you well, would be honoured to receive a personalised baby card detailing your new arrival. It can make them feel more appreciated than reading a generic e-mail or social media post.
Alternatively you may be hosting your child’s first birthday party and what better way to say thanks for attending and for the kind gifts than a personalised card with a picture of the birthday boy or girl! It is a great personal way to say thank you and will be a great keepsake and memory from the day.
One of the major benefits of personalised baby cards is that you can include a photograph or even multiple photographs of your newborn. Sending a personalised card with your bundle of joy on the front can perk up someone’s day. You can therefore share images of your little one with your nearest and dearest privately rather than sharing them, essentially, to the whole world, via the internet. You can choose the colours, layout and images used in the card. You can even choose the style of the card from double sided to a flat single sided card to a style of your own creation. You can also create your very own message to include in the card, ensuring that they are unique and very personal. One thing that you can be guaranteed of is, a high quality finish, which you have masterminded yourself.
You can choose to include as little or as much detail as you want about your baby such as the name, weight, time and date of birth and much more. The baby card that you send will undoubtedly be unique and will be something each recipient will want to treasure. Having a baby can be a very hectic time, one where you will need all the help you can get. You may face morning sickness during pregnancy, multiple days in hospital for the birth and sleepless nights and endless mounds of dirty nappies when the baby arrives. Any help that anyone can give during this time would really benefit both parents and baby. A personalised baby card allows the parents to avidly express their thanks and appreciation to such people.
One great aspect of personalised baby cards, is that they can be created online, from the comfort of your own home. If you are heavily pregnant or dealing with the exhaustion of sleepless nights, travelling to go “Thank You” card shopping is not a very attractive option. Indeed, having the time to do so is even vey limited! Given the personal meaning attached to the card, it is not exactly the kind of task that you can delegate to someone else either. Instead, you can put your feet up and create your personalised card, without stepping foot outside of the house. You can come back to a website as you please and make changes or edits to your design before you commit to sending them to print, so there is no sense of urgency either.
Given the ease of creation, the personalisation, the thoughtfulness and the uniqueness of personalised baby cards, it really is no surprise that they are becoming an increasingly popular choice.
