Types of baby thank you cards
All our thank you cards are designed, printed and shipped from our studio in Mosgiel, just out of Dunedin. We offer three main styles of thank you cards, tried and tested over our 9+ years:
Postcard style thank you cards
The postcard style is a flat card measuring 105x148mm. This can be printed on both sides. Perhaps pop a photo on the front and then a preprinted “thanks” on the reverse? Cute with a magnet for someone’s fridge and not too much room if you don’t have the time to write a long thank you message!
Greeting card style thank you notes
A folded card, measuring 210x148mm when unfolded. We can design these to sit tall (portrait) with the fold at the lefthand side, or long (landscape) with the crease at the top. It’s usually whatever will suit your favourite baby photo! Either way, these should sit on a bookcase or mantlepiece quite nicely. Add photos to the outside of the card and leave lots of room for a handwritten message inside the card – or get us to print a special note on the inside to help get your note-writing underway.
Concertina style thank you cards
A concertina thank you card is a folded style of card. Suitable for sharing lots of shots of your precious wee ones, while still allowing you plenty of room for a thank you message. The size options available are ‘standard’, which has three panels. The ‘long’ size option has four panels. These are also known as z-fold or trifold cards.
When your friends or family pull the card out of the envelope, the card is all closed and only the top panel is visible. They open to reveal all the photos printed on the panels inside.
For the standard/three panel concertina invitation, the opened up size is 148x315mm. The long/four panel concertina invitations are 148x420mm.
Optional Extras for your Baby Announcement Cards
Thank you card envelopes
The C6 sized envelopes that come with your order are the perfect fit for the finished/folded closed size of all of these pieces, at 105x148mm. All our envelopes are made in New Zealand. Check out our range of colours available below.
I like this design but can I change the colours?
- In short: Yes!
- There is a lot of flexibility for changing the printed colours on your announcement cards as they are digitally printed. There is no extra charge for this, however you may wish to purchase a printed proof, so you can check the colours are exactly what you want before we print the whole set.
- You can also opt to change the mailing envelopes to complement your colour scheme. White or kraft envelopes are included at no charge, or you can upgrade to a coloured or metallic envelope. There are also RSVP envelopes in a range of colours depending on the size needed.
What card options do I have for my thank you cards?
I’m so glad you asked – we have detailed information on each card option here.
A lot of character and vibe can be conveyed by selecting a different card option, for example an organic earth feel with a kraft brown card, or a luxe event with a metallic card option. If you want a photograph printed on the front, the standard white card option gives a vibrant result. The textured or coloured card options will affect the look of your photograph so may not be the best option if you want to share the photograph to its best advantage.
You can also purchase a wedding invitation sample pack to help you make your decision. The cost of the sample pack is redeemable against a wedding invitation order.
