Only what you need for your baby. Really. (OK – and some fantastic things you don’t that are pretty cool.)

Cards and Invitations

You’re either the kind of person who sends printed birthday invitations or you’re not.

Subcategory of the former: the kind of person who designs your own and and prints them at your home printing press, including a perfect, tiny dried flower affixed by hand to the inside next to a tasteful shot of your little one looking serious and not in need of toys that take batteries. Alternate subcategory: the kind of person who has scrapbooking supplies on hand and enjoys a nice afternoon at a flat table with bric brac and glitter.

Let me be clear: I am the kind of person (second child, a little OCD, only ever had two birthday parties that I remember) who sends printed invitations. I am not the kind of person who has any facility with a printing press or a glue gun or knows anyone who will hook me up with their own skills in that department for cheap. So I use Tiny Prints for Astrid’s birthday invitations (and our Christmas cards and my shower invitations and birth announcements) and I love them. They have charming card choices and a meticulous process and, since they’re located in the Bay Area, their turnaround on my custom orders is ridiculous. Like, I have the prints in my hands in a week or less. But the main thing is that I love the cards themselves.

So if you’re looking for a place to print lovely invitations relatively inexpensively and quickly, consider them. They rock.
