There’s no better news than the arrival of a newborn baby into one’s family. But when your family and circle of friends are scattered far and wide birth announcements can be of great help. Yes, we have the internet, and yes we have online photo sharing, but there is nothing more personal than a well-designed card with a photo of the little one. Immediately frame-able, scrapbook-able, for tactile sharing.

I do miss the old way of getting mail, regardless of the slowness compared to today’s internet email. And getting a card in the mail is always a joy. I’d like to see something of going back to some of the old ways. It’s the stuff keepsakes are made of, with the ribbon and the perfume and the photos with the white edges.

Hail the newborn
