“For birth announcements the trends (aside from pink and blue for genders) are including lots of browns and greys,” says Megan Harris of CardsDirect LLC, a site offering greeting cards and invitations for every occasion. “Gender neutral colors are also very popular: turquoises, yellows, oranges, etc. Birds are very in right now. Cute little birdies for birth announcements are a huge hit. We have a GREAT paper selection, called ‘ice pearl metallic,’ and this is a popular selection for birth announcements, as it is very sweet and gentle; photos print beautifully on this paper.”
