When this personalised birth announcement print arrived to be reviewed, I was genuinely thrilled with it. It is the perfect keepsake for my daughter and I would certainly recommended it as a gift for a new baby. It arrived in perfect condition, carefully wrapped in a clear cellophane sleeve and posted in a board back envelope.
The unframed print is entitled ‘Hello World’, and is designed to look like a calendar page from the month of the new arrival’s birth. I love the way that the birth date is highlighted with a heart shape in your choice of pink, blue, purple or green. You can also choose to further personalise with the baby’s name, date of birth, weight, time of birth and place of birth. These details are all printed in a neat, capital font of a hand-drawn effect which resembles the look of crayon writing.
The announcement is printed on 225gsm 100% cotton archival paper with the highest quality pigment inks, with ultrachrome technology, resulting in a fantastic print with a feeling of real quality.
You can choose from 3 sizes: Small – 8 x 10 inches (20.3 x 25.4cm), Medium – 11 x 14 inches (27.9 x 35.6cm) and Large – 12 x 16 inches (30.5 x 40.6cm) all designed to fit into standard frames.
The only thing I would have liked was the option to purchase it already framed, especially if it is intended as a gift.
Overall it is a really lovely keepsake and I am very pleased with it.
RRP: £12 to £20 (depending on size).
