Hello, Baby

hello lucky!

Your original idea for a birth announcement read, “My body just exploded and all I got was this crying baby!”

But your husband thought that might kill his mother. (Two birds?)

For a classier spin, turn to the sister duo behind Hello Lucky. The company, known for crisp letterpress stationery, now does custom birth announcements.

Clean lines and soft colors give the cards a modern, unfussy look. And vintage-inspired, original illustrations make even a guitar-playing monkey seem artsy not childish. Options include recycled or cotton card stock and letterpress (even on digital prints).

Ordering is simple: Choose a design and font, upload a photo, and enter text.

Take advantage of two free proofs to see how the service works.

If only everything had a trial run.
