GENERAL TIPS FOR IMPROVING YOUR NEW BABY WISHES
Here are a few general tips that you can use to make sure your new baby wishes are the best they can be.
Make sure you sound sincere. One of the worst things you can do is to sound like you're not happy for the parents or that you're just going through the motions. If you don't really mean it, don't say it.
Keep it short and sweet. New parents are usually very tired, so they might not have the energy or attention span to listen to a long speech. Keep your wishes brief and to the point.
Focus on the positive. This is a time for celebrating, so try to focus on the happy and positive aspects of the situation. Unless you're trying to be funny, in which case it's okay to skewer the less savory aspects of parenting.
Avoid giving advice. Unless you're asked, try not to give the parents any unsolicited advice. They're already getting enough of that from everyone else!
Say congratulations! This might seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people forget to say congratulations to the parents. Make sure you include this in your new baby wishes.
Automate your handwritten cards. If you send a lot of handwritten cards, keeping up can be challenging. You do the work because you value the way handwritten messages are more poignant than an email or a text message. But what if you could get convincing handwritten cards (even in your own handwriting) with the simplicity and speed of a digital message?
Simply Noted makes it a reality. We've built the world's most advanced handwriting robots, capable of recreating the subtleties of word letter, sizing, and shape that separate handwriting fonts from real handwriting. Simply choose a card, upload your text, and warm, inviting handwritten cards will be on their way to your recipients quickly and at any volume. Simply Noted is the best way to send the best new baby wishes.
