I guess I must have just assumed that Hallmark already offered customizable baby announcements because they’re pretty much the greeting card pioneers. But apparently, that was not the case, since I just got word that their brand new line personalized baby announcements just hit their site.

From what I can see, they look pretty darn cool. I’m equally impressed with the simple, stylish designs as I am with the ease of ordering and sending them (I tried out their thank-you cards myself), and the fantastic prices. Hallmark has got everything from the cute girl announcement that turns your full-frame photo into a lovely 5×7 card, to very sweet baby boy announcements to the requisite hedge-your-bets yellow themes.

There are also very cool personalized photo plates (right), so should you want to eat cake off your new baby’s face at the Briss or Christening, you go right ahead.

All the announcements start at around $.89 and max out around only $1.59, but make sure to factor in discounts for bigger orders. And even better, simply add the cost of a stamp to each and Hallmark will address and mail them out for you.

At my house, that means friends and family might actually get the announcement before my kid turns one. -Kristen
