I'm a little behind on this. I was wondering if you all used for birth announcements. Can you share a little about how much it cost and if you were happy with the results? Thanks!

I did the free announcements from Kodak (here is the post about them) and they are BEAUTIFUL!!! It only cost me 2 bucks and change (the shipping fee)...This is what mine looks like!!

All I had to do was put in my pictures, and I got them 4 days later!

Oh, they are lovely!

Slightly OT but, does she have her toenails painted? Baby's first pedicure?

I used Costco- 50 announcements with envelopes for $15. They are okay- and were ready a few hours after I submitted them online!

Ours are from Shutterfly, are printed on nice matte paper and look so beautiful
Not cheap but I used two different codes to get 40% off and it made them a bit more affordable. They look so elegant and came quickly.
I will post a link to the announcement when I can scan it.

I also took advantage of kodak's 20 free print promo. And I order some custom design announcements off of a seller on etsy for $16. But that doesn't include me printing them out and getting envelopes.
