There are many different types of baby cards that are available. If you know new parents, you can send a congratulatory card on their new addition. These come in the traditional of blue and pink colors for a boy and a girl respectively. When choosing a card, put some thought into it so that you do not just give a generic card with a generic message. You can choose a card depending on the personality of the parents so that if they like to have fun, you can choose a card with a funny joke as the message. If the parents have been trying to have a baby for a long time, you can send a card that expresses your excitement and the feelings of celebration. If you cannot find a card that adequately expresses the sentiments that you would like to pass on, then you can add a personal note or you can make a customized card.
As a new parent, you may want to send out cards announcing the birth of your
new baby. You can decide to make customized cards by having your baby's
picture on the cover as opposed to using a traditional card. These kinds of
personalized cards are not hard to get and you can get a card printer to do
these for you fast and as many as you would like.
You may also need to send out thank you baby cards for people who held and
attended your baby shower, those who attended you baby christening and other
baby celebrations that you may have. If you are buying already made cards, it
is important to take time to choose cards that have the sentiments that you
would like to express. If you cannot find those, then consider going with
customized cards as these are more personal and make the people who receive the
card feel more special.
You can get an e-card which you can personalize and print out. Alternatively
you can get a thank you card which you can add a personal note or the baby's
thumbprint or handprint. This will take time and is plenty of work but the
sentiment will be highly appreciated. You have to have list of people whom you
will send the cards so that you do not forget anyone. If you are pre-ordering
customized cards, then you have to make sure that you do them on time so that
they do not come too late.
You can also combine two messages in one card. For example you can send a thank
you card that also invites your family members and friends to your baby's christening
to save you on time. If you have no idea the kind of cards that you want to
send out, look through what is available online and in card stores so that you
can be able to get some ideas which you can incorporate and it will make it
easier for you to choose the kind of baby cards that you would like to send
