  • WALMART! You can take any picture in that you want, customize them with any border and words that you want, and they cost 40 cents a peice. I got my sons done, and printed out 50 of them for 20 bucks, and they print them in an hour!

  • I found a cute set at the craft store and just added my own picture to it. I used a coupon so I got the pack for about 12 bucks and then printed my pics and that cost me about 4. That was for 50 of them.

  • You can go to a baby announcemet website and right click on the one you like and save the image in your files and then you got to either photoshop it or scrapbook. You cut out the other pics of the baby they in it and fill in the empty space with paintbucket and add your own baby photos you can the name of the baby, date of birth, weight etc.... and fonts colors. It's a little more time consumming, but it save alot of money and it's cuter than Walmart.

  • I got mine at Target with my 2 yo daughter, but I am due again in July and will probably make my own this time. Type all the info in and print instead of writing in everything 30 times, it was way more time consuming than I cared to do with a newborn at home too.
