Would you believe I never had a baby shower? My friend who was “going” to throw it just… never quite got around to it but had spread the word that she was going to, so no one else did. Let’s just say I’m making sure that doesn’t happen to anyone else I know. I love baby showers, but the last time I threw one, I hand made every invitation and shower favor. Never again. There’s a much easier way that looks so elegant and personal that I’ll never go back. Thank you, Tiny Prints.
I’ve used Tiny Prints before, and I love their quality and breadth of selection. They are always unique, and the fact that they tend to have designs in collections of items so I can keep my theme going is a huge plus for me. So this summer, I have two babies coming into my life. My sister-in-law is due with her first, and my best friend is also due.
You know that means I’m going to have to help them do some shopping for Tiny Prints birth announcements, right? They didn’t have these kinds of things so easily available when the wee ones were born, and I have to admit that I’m jealous. So I live vicariously through my friends and relatives and “help” them find what they love with Tiny Prints, a premium online stationary brand.
Because that whole ease of use thing for the birth announcements? It’s possible in my post partum haze, I simply decided I didn’t have enough mental or physical energy to send them out. The thought of actually trying to make something and then stuff the envelopes and address them and get them into the mail system with a baby who would not let me set him down for a second or he’d scream bloody murder pretty much did me in. And I wish now that I did have birth announcements, though I don’t know how I would have gotten them out.
Good news? Tiny Prints makes it easy to get your cards and invitations and announcements mailed. They have their own mailing service where you don’t even have to touch the cards before they’re sent. It’s brilliant, right? You can either import contacts from your address book or an Excel sheet – and I have all my addresses in an Excel sheet to make for an easy mail merge. Then you choose to have the cards mailed, pay for postage and printing, and you’re done. That is a service I definitely would have taken advantage of, and one I have recommended to several new mom friends who are as harried as I once was.
Tiny Prints has it covered. They has beautiful trend-forward designs that really allow you to show your personality and uniqueness, as well as that of your baby – or babies! You can choose different sizes and colors and paper types with everything from classic, simple designs to those with a more contemporary feel and everything in between.
And in addition to the unique baby shower invitations and unique baby announcements, Tiny Prints has matching address labels, thank you cards, and gift cards so that you can tie it all together. You can easily see what matching items are available for each card design by clicking into it and seeing what is listed on that screen. How perfect and fun would it be to have the shower invitations match the baby announcements that match the address labels and thank you cards? That’s enough to make any new mom look like she’s got it together, right?
So no, it isn’t a surprise to me that Tiny Prints is the place where I’m turning when I start planning my baby showers. Because this is what I’m sending out next time. So. Cute.
In the meantime, I’m giving away $50 to spend on a Tiny Prints order to a lucky reader!
