10 Birth Announcement Trends for 2015

After months and months of waiting, your precious new bundle of everything is here, and it’s time to tell the world! babyOne of the best ways to share your joy is with a Photo Birth Announcement. Photographs are a great opportunity to showcase the cuteness that has stolen your heart. Not only can friends and family oooh and ahhh over a Photo Birth Announcement, but they can also put it on the fridge or even frame it. My aunt has a wall in her hallway with all the grandchildren’s birth announcements cleverly framed and displayed with pride.

So in an homage to Late Night television and Late Night feedings, here are the top 10 Photo Birth Announcement trends for 2015:

10. Hand Lettering. Mixbook’s Hello Overlay and Hello Baby! announcements are excellent examples of this hip, eye pleasing style that uses casual typography to warmly welcome your newest addition.
