New parents, we know you couldn’t be more proud. You’ve waited months–years, maybe–for your new baby to be here and you are¬†so¬†ready to share him or her (or him and her) with the world. We get it. So, in honor of the sunniest months, we’ve scoured our favorite sites¬†to find¬†cool¬†summer birth announcements worthy of your big news.

You can catch up on sleep now instead of clicking through the thousands of designs out there with snowflakes or Easter eggs on them. Consider it our gift to you.


At top: Nothing says summer like surfer style. Check out this cool round personalized surfer girl birth announcement¬†print from Project Cottage. While it’s designed to be¬†a frameable print, you can¬†get it as a digital file and print it yourself in a smaller format to send out to loved ones.
