Top Ten Ways to Announce the Birth of Twins

Your twins (or more!) are here and it's time to share your big news with the world. Even though the Internet makes it easy to share the news online, many families still desire to send a printed announcement through the mail. It used to be that announcements for multiples were tricky to track down. But now, there are a wide variety of birth announcements designed specifically for twins and more. In fact, it is quick and easy to find them online where you can order customized announcements from the comfort of your keyboard. Showcase a sneak-peek of your babies' first photos by uploading images and inserting them in a template for printing.

Of course, you can always adapt standard birth announcements to include twins. Your best bet is to use an announcement with multiple photo spaces and big blocks of text so that you can include individual photos and details about both babies. But, if you want something "doubly" designed, check out these ideas.

 I'm not a fan of the term "double trouble" (here's why) but this birth announcement designed to look like a doublemint gum wrapper is just too adorable.  It can be customized for girls, boys, or one of each, and according to your preferences for a color scheme if you prefer something besides the minty green. Once you pay for your order, the designer will customize it with your details, and then you own the printable digital file. No need to order more cards than you need; you can print cards on your home printer or take the file to a photo lab or print shop for printing. Available from SweetLex at Etsy.com
