What if you were a product designer at Pear Tree Greetings and part of your job was to come up with unique birth announcement ideas? Oh, and what if you were expecting your first child at the time? That’s the situation our designer, Michelle, found herself in recently. Our new collection of birth announcements debuted about a month after her son was born.
“I found the collection fun to work on since we were anticipating a baby of our own,” says Michelle. Now that baby Alexander has arrived, Michelle’s perspective has changed a little. “Being a Mommy, you want your announcements to be unique and one of a kind, just like your child.”
A unique birth announcement idea that is near and dear to Michelle’s heart is the Creative Baby Booklet, a 16-panel, folded card that was inspired by a childhood memory. “When I was a little girl, I was always creatively playing around with paper. I remember making a little booklet similar to the one in our collection. I thought it was so neat that one piece of paper could be turned into a little booklet, holding itself together. I have been wanting to fit this unique idea into one of our collections at Pear Tree – and it was the perfect fit for the birth announcements collection.” Since then, Pear Tree has added booklet designs to three other collections, including Save the Date Cards, Graduation Announcements and Easter Photo Cards.
No matter which of her own unique birth announcement ideas she chooses, we are thrilled for Michelle and happy to welcome baby Alexander into the Pear Tree family! Read more baby announcement ideas on our blog, or you can browse our baby announcements collection and get inspired to create your own!
