It used to be that baby announcements came in two colors: pink for girls and blue for boys. In today's day and age this is not necessarily the case anymore. At Absolute Edge, we tend to stick to a more contemporary and modern look for our announcements.
Say you're having a girl. Try thinking of colors like lavender & pale yellow or orange & magenta. If you want more of the traditional pink try adding in apple green, bright green or pale yellow as a second color or a different shade of pink. Black has always been a nice bold background color for baby announcements, but chocolate brown with pink added gives a more contemporary look.
For boys a lot of the trend still revolves around blue. Not just a single baby blue, perhaps add apple green, lime green or pale yellow as a second or primary color. If you want more of a bold look try navy blue and red or hunter green. Again any of these colors mixed with chocolate brown will be sure to make your invitation stylish.
Other trends include patterns on the card. Dots, stripes, plaid, gingham are all still popular, try adding a few of these patterns together to get a more modern look. Die cutting is also another way to add characteristic to your invitation.
As far as wording: keep it short and simple. Nowadays it's more about the design than it is about the rhyming words. Baby's name and information and a "with love" message from the parents is all you need to create the finishing touches on your trendy baby announcement.
