I designed these birth announcements for Alexander shortly after he was born. Well, I actually had the design ready to go and then once I was satisfied I had a worthy photo, I was able to turn them around quickly one afternoon when I had a rare couple hours of downtime (my mom was over). I had them printed through Vistaprint, which had a super quick turnaround and the quality is nice, and it was relatively cheap! These cards are 4 color, even though I went with a B&W photo (printing in CMYK gives a certain richness to a black and white image).
Sending out birth announcements so close to Christmas also begged the question: Christmas cards? I feel like I have to, for baby’s first Christmas??! I feel I simply must.I had also designed a little crest for sweet young Alex. It means “Knowledge, Truth and Courage.” Eventually I will get a shield tattooed on my right arm to correspond with the sword on my left, and I will have Alex’s initials on it. IDK, maybe some Joy Division lyrics too.
