I love sending mail. It’s one of my love languages, I think, if that were an actual love language. It’s just so much fun sending mail to people and knowing you’re about to make someone smile. At least, I hope so, since that’s my reaction whenever I receive anything fun in the mail! So this is why I always send thank you notes (and also because mama taught me right!) and announcements and invitations. The good old fashioned way. With that being said, I was SO excited to order miss Sophie’s birth announcements! It was one of the things I was really looking forward to post-birth.
I know. I’m kind of a nerd like that.
Obviously, I ordered them through Minted, because as we all know, they are my very favorite stationery place. I’ve been ordering our Christmas cards through them for a few years now (here, here and here), and Sam’s announcements were by Minted and so were his first birthday invites. Naturally, Sophie’s birth announcements needed to be, as well!
When I saw this beautiful floral design, it was a no-brainer. They were the ones. Aren’t they just so pretty?! And she’s a girl, so I’m having so much fun choosing super girly things, and I. Love. It.
I also love the FREE address printing Minted offers! And the back of these allowed me to not be too devastated about having to only choose one photo to include on the card, since I love so many! ;)
Goodness gracious, this sweet baby girl of ours. We are absolutely head over heels with her! All three of us. :)
Minted has so many amazing designs to choose from for whatever your paper needs may be- whether it’s party invitations, wedding invitations, Christmas cards, birth announcements or even art (I have a few of their art pieces- here and here)!
And right now through 3/14 is their semi-annual Free Foil Event– 20% off all foil-pressed products with code FOIL16! So jump on it! And let me know what you get. :)
Are you a snail mail lover, too?
What’s the last fun mail you sent someone or received?
I love to send mail as well! The last thing I sent was a get-well card to my grandfather. The birth announcements are pretty, and I love Minted!
Aww I hope your grandfather gets well, too. And so sweet- I’m sure your card brightened his day!
these are absolutely beautiful!!!
These are the sweetest birth announcements I’ve ever seen! They are absolutely beautiful – the bow around them is a lovely touch!
Aww thanks Lauren!! :)
These are gorgeous! Love the design and pictures you chose. I’m going to get started on announcements for my little one!
Yayy- so much fun! :)
These are really fabulous! Can’t wait till I can finally get pregnant so I can make cute announcements like these!
Aw thank you! And it really is so much fun! :)

These are gorgeous! I love how feminine they are without being too girly, you know? And I love all the pictures you put on the back, too! I’m definitely the same way about birth announcements. I had my kids’ announcements picked out before they were born so I could just put all the information and pictures on and get them ordered!
YES- I did the same thing! Had the announcements picked out and then just added the info! Such a great idea. :)
We got ours in the mail! Thank you!!!!
Sending mail is always fun – I think it’s because there’s so few times people do it anymore! I’m definitely a stationery lover :)
Gorgeous birth announcements – absolutely perfect :)
Aw thank you Shannon!! :) And yes, snail mail is the BEST.
I am definitely a snail mail lover too!! I am so excited to send birth announcements out next month for my first baby!
Awww that is SO exciting, Ann!!! It’s kind of surreal- you’re going to have so much fun!
