When welcoming your little one to the world, you're excited to share that good news with your nearest and dearest. You want an announcement that feels special and meaningful...that feels unique. Therein lies the beauty of custom stationery.
Together we can craft the perfect card and accessories to fit your needs. You get to be intimately involved in the process, sharing your vision and ideas, without the hassle of trying to figure out a template or piece together a cohesive look. Leave all the design work to me while you prepare for your little one's arrival!
We begin with a meeting (in-person or via zoom) to get to know each other and discuss your vision. I'll ask some specific questions to get a good understanding of the direction you want to go. We'll also explore any accessories (stickers, address labels, etc.) that will help complete the look.
When your little one arrives, just message me the details (date, weight, etc.). I'll make those changes to your card and finalize it for print. Your cards are usually ready for delivery or pickup within 1-2 business days. Envelopes and accessories can be delivered beforehand so you won't have any addressing or assembling once the baby arrives. You'll have your hands full with more important things!
Then I'll get to work researching, drawing and putting together a design that's uniquely you. You'll receive a digital sample of the design and together we'll review and discuss any necessary revisions. Once the design is perfect, I'll order a test print so you can experience the look and feel of the actual card in your hand.
Custom birth announcements are unique designs based on a specific idea that is meaningful to you and your family, or on a general artistic style that you like. If you're unsure of the look you want, I'll help you sort through ideas and options to get the creative juices flowing.

Carrie is an amazing designer, asking all the right questions from the start. We had a general idea of what we wanted and the result was spot on!
This is the second custom birth card that Carrie has designed for us. Her designs are so elegant: soft romantic lines with beautiful use of color.
We are already married, otherwise we would certainly call upon her services again for invitations!

My husband and I had an idea of how we wanted our daughter's card to look, which Carrie understood right away. We were delighted from the first draft - this was really what we wanted!!!
If you are looking for more than just a card design, Carrie will assist you with her experience, attention to detail, and professional approach.
Working together was a perfect fit!

We had some specific ideas for the birth cards of our children that Carrie skillfully translated to paper with marvellous colours and beautiful details. With envelopes, address labels, stickers and buttons to match we had a whole picture perfect concept.
Carrie came back to us regularly and was very open for feedback. In short, a very nice experience and birth cards we still get compliments for.
