Birth Announcements - One or Two

Did you do one birth announcement for both babies or one for each?  I thought I would do one for each and told my mom and she thinks I'm nuts.

Re: Birth Announcements - One or Two

  • I just did one, I found lots of them that seemed specific for twins - two spots for pictures and space below each picture for names, weights, etc.  But I don't think it would be weird to do one for each baby.

  • I had them both on one announcement but of course listed their information separately and I used individual photos of them. (I SO wish I had gotten pro newborn pics taken! That's one big regret from the first few months.) I really think you can do either; whatever you prefer.

  • I also had one announcement for both babies. We got a picture of them together used the photographer that worked at the hospital and birth announcements were part of the package with their info under each baby. I can see why you might want tto have separate birth announcements they are two individuals after all! but, you'd also end up with double the postage, double the envelopes etc...

    ETA: Unless you put both in one envelope....duuuuhhh....sorry for the dumb comment; not getting much sleep lately. :p

  • We just did one. I had a sweet pic of them and then put their info on. It was a twin announcement from Shutterfly.

  • I just did one with two individual pics and one together. It had each's stats on as well. A graphic designer friend did mine, but there are many sites with twin specific announcements.

    I had the same thing. I don't think it was supposed to be a twin announcement but it worked that way for me (from shutterfly). I also had the boys birth stats and their "welcomed home" stats for when they got out of the NICU.

  • I didn't get around to doing birth announcements... but I thought about it! My plan was to just do one that had a picture of each baby and their info printed each in it's own space.

  • I just did one announcement for both. it was specific for twins. I just did one pic I took with my own camera. It was cute.

  • One for both. I have December babies so I actually modified a Christmas card from Shutterfly into pulling double duty as a birth announcement/Christmas card.

    I did one announcement but using a twin card from tiny prints.  We also sprang for the newborn photos so had a gorgeous picture of the two of them.  

    However, if you really want to do two - then go for it.  They are your babies and you get to do what you want :)  It might be neat to do a two sided announcement - one for each

    This, although mine were born Oct 29th. I found a photo card at Walmart online with 3 photo spaces & a generous free text space. One photo together (when we did our NB shoot, we did one with both girls in Christmas stockings) and one individual of each. I didn't add their full stats, tho, just names and birthdate.

    Ditto - I only put names and date. Does anyone really care about weights or length anyway?
