Custom Baby Announcement Cards

Looking for custom made baby announcement cards?  A customised birth announcement card is a wonderful way to introduce your beautiful new baby to all your loved ones. 

Why Choose a Custom made birth announcement card?

There are many reasons to work with an illustrator when designing your baby announcement cards. The most important reason is the need for a unique design. No two babies are the same, so why are all the standard baby announcements so similar and interchangable?

Perhaps you have a great idea for a birth announcement, but lack the drawing skills or the digital know-how to realise your project. Perhaps you would prefer not to use a design that has already been used by thousands of others. Or maybe you just want a card with a real wow effect. Whatever the reason, a personalised card can be the best answer!

As an illustrator I specialise in birth announcement cards with a strong illustrative side, be sure to have a look through my previous projects and my portfolio to see if my style appeals to you. I work both traditionally and digitally depending on the needs of the design.


Advantages of a custom baby announcement card:

– Unique birth announcement that you will not see anywhere else
– A design that is worked out in consultation with you, including revisions
– Personal contact
– Guidance and advice on the various choices. Which type of paper? What thickness? Are you going for 150m/g or 300m/g weight? Which printer to use? If you want to make your own cards, you are faced with a lot of choices that are not so obvious. I help and advise and explain every choice with examples so that you know exactly what you are choosing. 
– With the total package, you just have to write your addresses & put your cards in the mail.

How does it work?

Step 1 - Contact

First you contact me via the contact form or by phone or appointment. By asking a few specific questions, I can get a better idea of what kind of card you want. This way I can make an offer as accurate as possible.

Step 2 - Estimate

Once I have the necessary information, I will make you a personal offer. If this is in line with your expectations, we can proceed to the design phase after the first payment.

Step 3 - Concept

Based on your wishes, I will work out 3 initial concepts. These are short, small sketches that represent the idea and the composition of the card. You choose one of them, with possibly extra comments for the necessary adjustments.

Step 4 - First Draft

Based on your choice, I will start working on a first version of the chosen sketch.

Step 5 - Trial Print

The final version is sent to you and we do a proof. This way you can see beforehand what the colours look like when printed, and whether the choice of paper is to your liking. If the proof is ok, then it is exciting to wait until the birth of your child.

Step 6 - Result

Your baby is born! Send me the missing data (length, weight, time & date) as soon as possible and I will send the final card with the correct information to my regular printer. I will let you know when you can come and collect your cards or send them by courier.

Prices

How much does a customised card cost now? The price of your card depends on a lot of things. Especially the type of paper used for printing, special printing techniques like foil or letterpress, and the complexity of the design (multiple drawings versus 1 spot illustration) can greatly influence the cost. That is why I work with a tailor-made offer that uniquely suits your wishes and needs. To give you an indication of the prices, you can already take a look at the price list below to get an idea of the approximate price per print run.
