Henry // Minted Birth Announcements

Happy Monday everyone! We made it home from Michigan late last week after an awesome two weeks with family and friends. It was so much fun introducing so many loved ones to Henry, and the trip went really smoothly. I'm hoping to put together a post about our visit soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to finally share Henry's birth announcement with you!

Throughout the past few years, I've shared a few different posts about getting our Christmas cards from Minted. I really love their beautiful designs and the quality of everything I've ordered has been really fantastic. So when it was time to order Henry's birth announcements, I knew that I was going to use Minted to put them together! I already shared our newborn photos that we had taken the week after Henry was born, but when it came to the announcement, I wasn't sure which photo or photos I wanted to use. I knew I wanted a modern design for the announcements though so when I came across this design, it seemed perfect. I really liked that I was able to customize the font, colors, and wording placement for our photo and absolutely loved the results! Here's how it turned out: 


Although I've loved all my past Christmas cards, these announcements are hands-down my favorite thing I've ordered from Minted. And because I had all my addresses saved on the Minted site from my previous Christmas cards, I was able to have all the recipient addresses printed on the envelopes which was a HUGE time saver, especially when caring for a newborn! 

These announcements were the perfect way to introduce our friends and family all over the country to our son because even though I've posted plenty of pictures of Henry on social media, I think there is something so special about sending a photo via snail mail, especially for a momentous occasion like this.  (I can't believe how much he's already changed since his announcement photos were taken though! Gahhhh...) Thank you Minted for helping us share this joyous news!


Minted did provide me with complimentary announcments, however, all thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.

  5. They are beautiful and there really is nothing like receiving one through the post. I can't believe how much he has grown already. Out of all your lovely newborn pictures, I think the front one might be the best X

  6. These are wonderful, and you are right, there's something more special about getting these in the mail and being able to put these on the fridge or scrapbook and easily look back on it later, even though there are lots more pictures on social media!
