    Birth announcements

    I imagine you guys have all already done your announcements. Did you use an online service for them? If so who did you use and were you happy with how they turned out? Gabe is 3 weeks tomorrow, I have to get on this announcement thing. Wow, these weeks are just flying by!

    We found some cute birth announcement cards where you could insert the pic right onto the card and we developed some pics from Walgreens. In all the announcements were rather cheap.

    Oh good, that's two "yes" votes for Shutterfly. I had thought I may use them but hadn't used them before and am glad to hear you guys were happy with them. Thanks for all the relpies!
    I have to order an obscene amount of them. I am soooo tempted to just wrap our Christmas card into a birth announcement/Christmas car duo and save the time and cost. I usually do 80+ Christmas cards and so don't want to do this twice.
    I thought if I had all three kids Christmas pictures taken together it would work as the announcement too. Of course that would mean I am not having the photos done until he is 2-1/2 months old. Do you think that's bad?

    I'm going with NO as a few of my friends have done this with their Lo's being older than 2 1/2 months (try 6+ months). I even had a friend combine a birth announcement/baptism announcement together.
