The Joy of Pregnancy Announcement Postcards

Jun 7, 2008
What are you expecting from a pregnancy announcement postcard? Joy? Excitement? How about a life lasting moment that the recipient will never forget? Pregnancy is an exciting and joyful time. There is suddenly so much new on the roadmap that needs to be tackled before the little bundle of joy arrives. Especially first time parents to be are seeing the world with different eyes and are tempted to even tell strangers that they are expecting a baby. It's a very special time for sure. One problem with being pregnant is the lack of time and certain restrictions (especially later on during pregnancy) that make life a little more difficult. Long air travel is less desirable as an example as it can affect the baby. Friends you used to see every day/week/month have to stand back because you are concentrating on other things that (naturally) seem more important now. Then you think about all your friends back from high school and college + your extended family down in the Boonies. It is literally impossible to tell everyone in person about the great and exciting news.

This is where pregnancy announcements are a present send from heaven. Just plain email is boring and not always the polite way to tell someone you care about that you are expecting a baby. Pregnancy Announcement Postcards are different. It's a very personal and emotional way to let friends and family know that you are expecting and that the world as you know it will change in much less than 9 months. Pregnancy Announcements come in many different flavors and many options exist. It really just depends on your ability and willingness on how much money you want to spend. Some vendors charge you an arm and a leg per postcard and the designs are actually horrible + they make/sell them in a way that you even have to spend expensive postage per card instead of providing options that look great and can be mailed with the lowest priced stamps available from the United States Postal Office. Other vendors have realized that you want to spend your money on things for the little one and offer affordable pregnancy announcements without letting the design be the cheapest part of the deal. We have seen vendors offering 20 to 25 cards for $10 to $15 total, while old time dinosaurs like Hallmark want more than $1.50 per one card.

What do you need to look for when buying pregnancy postcards? What postcards get the best results as a surprise for the recipient? Look for a design that is not tied to a specific gender since you probably don't even know yet if you are going to have a baby girl or boy. Look for a design that expresses warm emotions and tender feelings. Look for cards that you would consider great for making a lasting impression and that would motivate the recipient to pick up the phone and to call right that moment. Recipients usually look at the front of a postcard first before checking who the actual sender is. The right pregnancy postcard design will make moment last a life long and you have accomplished of what you wanted to get out of sending a pregnancy announcement postcard.
