154Chic mamas-to-be want to introduce baby to the world with equal flair. And what better way to imprint your style on Little One’s arrival than with custom designed baby announcements? We’ve searched high and low and found three local designers who can help you orchestrate Baby’s big debut.

Each designer works with families to meet your needs, from the photo you might like included to what font you prefer to your budget. To make sure your custom design comes out just as perfectly as baby will, allow six to eight weeks before your mailing date for your designer to get her work done. (perhaps a fun project to start in your third trimester, when activities like exercise and sleep have fallen by the wayside?). Then let your gorgeous baby announcements do the rest of the leg work.

di do creative designs
Di Do is the owner of di do creative designs, and she takes pride in creating distinct designs. We love the “Brothers and Sisters” announcement, which features a photo-book style display of Baby and sibling, borrowing the Vietnamese proverb, “Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.” Deep thoughts, made adorable.
Complimentary first meeting; $75.00 deposit; baby announcements, $3.00/card average; ordered in multiples of twenty-five; contact by phone or email.
