We got a great compliment recently! The company that created Duke's birth announcement, Purple Stork, asked to use Duke's for their website! You can view it at the following link, just scroll down to the date of April 13th to see him:
If any of you are looking to create an announcement, holiday cards, graduation announcements, or even birthday invitations that are unique and very creative, check out their website.
I discovered them two years ago when searching for a place to order Jack's announcement and found them to be reasonably priced while still offering a professional service. I took the pictures, uploaded them and their creative team did all the cropping, red eye removal and choosing of which pics they thought would look best based on the design I chose. They let me view as many proofs and make as many changes as I wanted and the best part - they were lightning fast! I received incredible service and felt like I was working with a friend rather than a mystery website or photo card shop.
Most of you probably received both of my kid's actual announcements, (and if you didn't and would like one, I still have a few extras ;-), and I can't tell you how many compliments I received on them.
And the personal touch was really special. When I went back to them for Duke's announcements, they remembered (or at least their staff was attentive enough to check!) that I had used them for Jack's announcement and as special suprise, when I received Duke's announcements in the mail, they had created a photo keychain for me with Duke's announcement on one side and Jack's on the other!
It was a refreshing change to have a company be so personal!
