Looking for fresh, hip and affordable birth announcements, shower invites and thank you cards? Visit Buttercup Kids, the new site by the people responsible for Tiny Prints. Buttercup Kids was created by three friends who share a love of babies and an appreciation for giving and receiving high quality stationery. As recent new parents themselves, they had the frustrating experience of trying to shop for unique, high-quality birth announcements online.

Buttercup Kids works with talented artists all over the country to design truly unique products that match current trends and styles. They work with both seasoned veterans in the industry, as well as younger, fabulously talented designers who design birth announcements, baby shower invitations and thank you cards just for them. Every single card on Buttercup Kids is designed purely for them and therefore available only at Buttercup Kids. They also offer photo birth announcements which let you show off your beautiful baby in addition to announce his or her birth.

Buttercup Kids designers include E and I, Hip Pocket, Petite Alma (who is now designing stationery only for Buttercup Kids/Tiny Prints – she’s been featured in InStyle, etc. ), Sarah Hornbrook Designs, and Tallu-lah.

Their designers have created birth announcements and related baby stationery for many celebrity parents, including Reese Witherspoon, Debra Messing, Maria Shriver, Adam Sandler, Al Roker, Charles Schwab and Harry Connick Jr.

One of the best features of the site is that it lets you very easily personalize and preview every card before ordering. They offer suggested wording and a layout guide, but you can also create a card entirely from scratch in the font types, sizes and colors of your choice. The entire process is so simple and actually fun.

Prices range from $1-5.80 per announcement.
