Tiny Prints


Anyone who knows me, knows two things for certain: (1) I am obsessed with occasion shirts (I think it stems from my sorority days) and (2) I will make up occasions to send out personalized cards. I probably send more invitations/Christmas/moving announcements/Valentine's Day cards than anyone I know. I just think there are never too many reasons to send someone a customized card!

So when we were looking for birth announcements I shopped around for a long time. I actually started looking at announcements long before I even was pregnant. We knew early on that we were going to use Tiny Prints because of their selection and quality. When we learned our firstborn was a boy, we were overjoyed to find the perfect blue announcements that matched the bow he was wearing in his newborn photos.
When Cole was born we wanted birth announcements to send to just our immediate family. Because we wanted to give our precious angel the same initials as his big brother C.J.H. we found it fitting that we ordered a similar birth announcement too. We settled on this beautiful announcement. We loved that Tiny Prints was so customizable that we could add in "A Moment in our Arms, An Eternity in our Hearts! Some people only dream of angels. We held one in our arms." We felt it was the perfect way to honor his birth and acknowledge that he had gone to Heaven.

**Photo Below: Sorry about the quality. This is a picture of the announcement we have framed in our living room!**

Then, when the twins were born, we instantly went to Tiny Prints for their twin birth announcement selection. We honestly thought they had a better and bigger selection of twin announcements than any other company out there.
 The pictures are small, but if you click on them - they will open much larger.
They also have amazing photo gifts. We had Connor's birth announcement mounted on a canvas. We couldn't do Aiden and Isabella's because of the card we got (we knew that when we ordered it...), and I haven't ordered Cole's yet. But I plan on it:

 This past Christmas, we did something different than we've done before. We took our Christmas Family photo and then went out in search of a card that would color match it well. Did you know that when you're trying to find a Christmas card on Tiny Prints you can search by color? That's how we came up with the card we used this year. We had never done a square card before, but we loved this one with the scalloped edges. It was honestly so hard to chose just one because they had the brightest, most playful holiday cards to chose from.
 The back:
We mailed out invitations for Mr. Howard's ceremony to our immediate family, but I am going to do "Woo-Hoo I graduated" announcement cards with the hubby in his cap and gown after his ceremony to our friends. I personally think that you can never celebrate big occasions too much. =) Their graduation announcements are so amazing!
I'm leaning towards this one:
Graduation Announcements Formal Tag - Front : Black
or this one:
Graduation Announcements Classic Grad - Front : Rich Red
Which do you like better?

I love the black and gold. This post is so funny to me, I am also slightly obsessed with tiny prints :) I love all of your beautiful cards. I did not use them for Jonathan's announcement because I wanted to write a lot more than space allowed, also when I went on their sight to look after he died, I almost got sick looking at the healthy baby boys. It was just to soon , to real and to raw. Your baby announcements and Christmas card is really beautiful! I love them all!

Love the black and gold one! I too really like tiny prints but now that my sister is a photographer she ordered my announcements through one of her photography websites and I love them! I still may use Tiny Prints for things like birthday invitations one day when I get to do that kind of thing. I have given you for the One Lovely Blog Award. You can find out about it here: http://thebybeeblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/awardfor-me.html
