Seeking Inexpensive Birth Announcements - Local or Online
I have been searching for reasonably priced birth announcements and have had no luck finding any that cost less than $1.25 PER CARD. This is our fourth child, born Dec. 18. And I was hoping to get the birth announcements ordered and received to be mailed with our Christmas letter and picture. We expected to mail our letter late but I'd rather it go our sooner than later. It's important that I don't have to manually fill out each card so that's why I'm hoping to get pre-printed ones. I'd also like them to include a picture. I am open to purchasing online but live in Virginia Beach if you know of a local business that is reasonable. Thanks for your help!
So What Happened?™
Thank you to all the wonderful Mamasource mommies with great suggestions. We ended up going with Snapfish through the Target web-site and were very pleased with the result AND the price! We mailed them out with our Christmas letter and family picture so we saved on postage too! Thanks again!

Have you thought about printing postcards at Walgreen's? I did that for my 3rd child. You upload a picture online at their site, select a card (they have many baby cards), then add the details. They are $9.99 for a box of 20, it works out to be a little less than 50 cents each. You can prepare them online, see what they will look like, then order them to print at your local Walgreen's to pick up.

I had 4x6 photos printed at Walgreens (19 cents each), then printed large labels at home with my son's birth info. I stuck the labels to the back of the photos and popped them in decorative envelopes. Saved a bundle and everyone just wants a picture anyway!

I had our Christmas cards printed at Walgreens this year and they had cards for birth announcements too. I just uploaded the photo I wanted to use, chose the style of card I wanted and added what I wanted it to say to it. I got 40 cards for 20.00 and they were ready for me to pickup at my local Walgreens in less than 24hrs. It was real easy and the cards turned out real nice too.
