1.

about us The birth of the idea that has become NiftyNotes began with the birth of a child. Elliot Strunk, a graphic designer, created a card to share with friends and family announcing the birth of his son, Evan. He took some decent digital photos the day of the birth and worked to create a design that also incorporated Evan’s inky footprints. He had the announcements printed by a friend, picked up some colored envelopes at a local store, and created mailing labels on adhesive-backed paper so each card wouldn’t be addressed by hand. Then Elliot and his wife, Betsy, handed some announcements to associates, neighbors, and clients, and mailed the rest to friends and family across the country. People soon came to Elliot and Betsy asking where the announcements came from and how much it would cost for them to have something similar. Unfortunately, without calling in favors, getting a custom-designed birth announcement would be too expensive for most people, news that Elliot and Betsy both reluctantly shared.

Why couldn’t a service be created to enable someone without a design background to make something special for their own child, an announcement that could be printed professionally and grouped with a nicely-colored envelope and label? Elliot asked the same question to two friends, Kent and Eric, who have photographic and software experience. The result? NiftyNotes.

our products NiftyNotes offers an entire line of products based around specific templates grouped under individual themes. This coordinated assortment allows our customers to select an initial design direction. All cards are produced on a thick, smooth, uncoated, white cardstock with recycled content. Birth Announcements Ask us about developing a tasteful printed piece with your baby’s information on the front of the card and the option of including a photograph covering almost the entire back side.

Quarterly Updates and First Birthday Announcement Showcase your child’s progress in three month increments through the purchase of our quarterly update cards. Thank You Cards We have crafted thank you cards that match our design styles in each collection. These cards are available flat or folded.

Address Labels and Envelopes We offer customizable, self-adhesive address labels to coordinate with your chosen announcement design. Choose between receiving “blank” labels to hand address or send us your address information digitally for fully-finished labels.

Sizes Each announcement product is available in horizontal and vertical orientations at three different sizes:

Door Sign Crafted with a matte laminate, this fun, oversize announcement can be hung on a door to let neighbors know that the baby has come home and the family is ready for visitors. Small 4.125” x 5.5”

Medium 5.0” x 7.0”
