When Wyatt was born, deciding on birth announcements was an exciting step, but also stressful. So many decisions to make – the photos, design, all of it! On top of that, I had to find time to address a stack of birth annoucements. Are you serious?! As any busy mom knows, just getting a shower in with REAL shampoo, not the dry stuff, is a huge accomplishment. At the rate I was going, Wyatt’s birth announcements would probably go out some time around his first day of kindergarten.
Fast forward to 20 months later, and Wyatt’s little brother has arrived. I wanted Lincoln’s birth announcements to be extra special. Additionally, time is even more precious when you are juggling the responsibilies that come with 2 little ones under 2 so convenience was key.
I was thrilled when I found Minted! They made the process of selecting birth announcements easy as can be, but also added that extra bit of “wow” I was looking for this time. With Minted, I was able to select the card shape, style, color, and even the printing type. I knew I wanted a foil pressed design so I narrowed my selection down to this one.
Before the final printing, I received a beautiful custom proof via email to approve the artist’s design. I cannot tell you how HUGE this was for me. When I made Wyatt’s birth announcements, I didn’t notice a typo until I received the order. Talk about embarassing! Minted made me feel confident in my purchase.
The best part? Pre-addressed envelopes!
My favorite part of ordering birth announcements from Minted was that the envelopes arrived with recipient addresses already printed – for FREE. I mean REALLY…how awesome is that as a busy mom?! It was super convenient to upload my address list to Minted and have them do all the work for me. I ordered some of Minted custom stamps to coordinate
