I got a great deal on zulily in April. It was $20 for $40 worth at tinyprints, and I had $10 in credit...so I got $40 for $10!!!!

The only site I've looked at is Tiny Prints. All the options are so overwhelming though! These are a few I liked when I looked through last time- but now that I look at them again, I"m not so sure I love them-

I originally wanted to order off of Etsy, but it had entirely too too many options. I'll have to take a look at Minted.

I was thinking of using Shutterfly, they have some pretty cute designs. Plus, I got a $20 gift card there when I bought my maternity underpants at Motherhood.

Announcements are SO not really in our budget. So we're going with Costco again. It was outrageously cheap last go-round... $14.99 for a set of 50, plus $5.49 for additional sets of 25. That's for a 6x7.5" photo card, and includes the envelopes. I would love to drop $100 on announcements, but I think it's going to probably come down to choosing between things like announcements, or a stockpile of bottom balm. And I'm choosing the bottom balm!!

On the Tinyprints tip, Costco members apparently save 20%. Still out of our price range, but if you're already a member, and already ordering through Tinyprints, you can save some cash. You may have to access through Costco's photo site though? http://shop.costco.com/Photo-Center/Index

My SIL has used both costco and walgreen's from their announcements and they are VERY cute!

I made the ones we sent out after Finn was born -- printed them on vellum, layered it over solid blue paper, and put a little blue ribbon through the top. I had them mostly ready to go, except for the photo & other details, by this point in that pregnancy.

I guess I should figure out what we're doing this time!

Does uploading a pic from my phone to Facebook count as a birth announcement? I hadn't even thought about this. I never got around to it with my first two.

I have made them all with my other kids, but this time I can't decide if I'm going to make them or order. I guess that my older two didn't even have pictures, just three and four did, so I've already broke precedent

Those tiny prints ones are really beautiful, I don't know if I could take a photograph worthy of those!

Don't be intimidated! Literally ANY baby picture looks cute on them. This was DD's:

Same here. Never even contemplated it. I'm a photographer so I just tend to plaster photos all over FB and Flickr and my blog! I think it's great for those who have them to send to but our family isn't close at all and they'd probably scratch their heads if I sent them announcements!

I make my own then have them printed. First baby I think I used Walgreens to print, second baby was Snapfish. Looking at these I can tell I learned a lot about design in the time between kids!
