Photo birth announcements

I want to do photo birth announcements when our son is born. I'm trying to narrow down what I want before he's born because I'm sure once he's here I won't have time to just surf the Internet to find what I want. I need your help though! Who does good quality ones? What ones have you used (for anything )? Thanks!

I used shutterfly for our birth announcements. Just download your pics to their site pick the card you want pick the pics you want on there & what you want it to say then they mail them to you with envelopes included.

I looked at shutterfly but there weren't any I was crazy about.

We liked the announcements we got through Walgreen's. Nice layouts, good photo quality, quick turn-around (order online, pick up in store), and good prices.

We used Vista Print. They have a lot of options, and I was able to choose the layout, enter personalized info and save it before our LO was born. I just had to add photos and update her stats afterward, and order.

We also got some magnets from them (our exact postcard-sized announcements, but as a magnet) for ourselves and close family to put up on the fridge.

I've used vista print before but didn't know they did birth announcements. Thanks for letting me know. I will check into them too!

I like Tiny Prints, search for coupon codes because there is almost always a deal going on!
