These pregnancy announcements are made from real unfertilized quail eggs that have been thoroughly emptied and cleaned. They are about 1/4 the size of a regular chicken egg - tiny, delicate and super adorable.
Each egg arrives packaged in its own nest and individual kraft box with "Crack Me!" stamped on the inside of the top flap. Recipients crack the egg to reveal your printed announcement on delicate and high quality parchment paper that has been hand-aged. The box is finished with a wax metallic silver seal or raffia ribbon. How do I get the messages into the eggs? A small hole is made in the bottom of the egg and the note is folded, rolled, and inserted. The hole is then patched and painted to be virtually invisible.
Each announcement is truly a unique one of a kind treasure. They are sure to bring a smile to your recipients' faces and build anticipation of your little one's impending arrival.
HOW TO ORDER:
1. Select the quantity of eggs you'd like to order and select the wax seal of your choice.
2. Enter the text of your annoucnement in the personalization field. Your announcement will be drafted using EXACTLY what you send me. If you'd like your announcement to have the same wording, symbols, etc. as the picture, you can specify "same as the picture. Baby Ellis...going to be an Auntie" and your last name and family member's title will be added to the existing note. I advise keeping your text to a max of 3 lines.
PROCESSING & SHIPPING:
Processing time is 3 to 5 business days. I do my absolute best to beat that processing time but you should allow for the full 5 business days or select expedited shipping or rush service at checkout.
HOW TO EXPEDITE YOUR ORDER:
We offer 2 expedited services that you can select in the shopping cart at checkout.
* Priority Mail Upgrade - USPS 1 to 3 Day Priority Shipping (this is shipping only....your egg will still take up to 3 days to make)
* Rush Service + Priority Upgrade - ships the next business day and includes postage upgrade to USPS 1 to 3 day priority mail
HOW TO MAIL OUT YOUR ANNOUNCEMENTS:
For your convenience, your order shipment will arrive with each egg invitation box and each is packed in its own indestructible shipping container...ready to be addressed by you and mailed to your intended recipients. All you need to do is address each shipping box and take them to the post office.
Pregnancy Announcement for Grandparents
If you are ordering multiple announcements and would like them to have different messages, you can leave your personalization note as "egg 1:, egg 2:, etc). The boxes will arrived marked lightly in pencil on the bottom of the white shipping containers so you can tell them apart. If you select gift wrap, they will arrive with marked tags.
