New baby cards

Welcoming a baby is a huge milestone—share your excitement for the most recent bundle of joy with new baby cards from Paperless Post. They’re the perfect way to send your best wishes and let the new parents know you’re backing them with support and love. From modern designs to adorable watercolor illustrations, you’ll have no trouble finding a congratulatory card that will showcase your feelings—whether you want to give the recipients a grin with a funny phrase or bring a tear to their eye with an affectionate message.

If you have a favorite stationery designer, you can filter your results to conveniently see just what they offer. We’ve teamed up with best-in-class creators like Rifle Paper Co., Petit Collage, and Hello!Lucky to make sure you have many templates to choose from.

What do you write on a new baby card?

If you’re not one for sentimental notes, that’s okay! A standard opener is entirely appropriate for a new baby congratulations card. Here are a few basic options to get your creative juices flowing:

  • “So excited for your growing family!”
  • “Congratulations on your newest arrival! Can’t wait to meet them.”
  • “Welcome to your next big chapter. Wishing you all the best!”

If you know the little one’s name, you can add it to the parents’ note to make it more personal. If you’re sending a card to first-time parents, feel free to include sage advice that maybe you wish you had known when you were a new parent. You can also let them know you’re there to support them with anything they need, whether babysitting or helping with late-night diaper runs.

Customizing baby congratulations cards

Play around with our smart online design tools and reword text, pick a new font, and add a special sticker to make your new baby card utterly unique. Personalize your envelope and backdrop to match your design and wow recipients.

When do you send a welcome baby card?

Send your new baby card within a few weeks after the baby’s arrival. Since the parents will be busy adjusting to the changes for the next little while (realistically, the next 18 years), they likely won’t notice if you don’t send it right away.

Plus, you never have to worry about your baby congratulations card’s delivery date, as that is entirely in your control. Send it now or schedule it for later, and never worry about buying postage stamps or tracking down their home address. Your card can be sent by email, text, or shareable link.
