If this is a gift for the family, how will they know whom it came from?

Each stork yard sign birth announcement includes a card with your personal message for the new parents. We leave this at the front door when delivering the sign.

Where do you leave the personalized keepsake signs after removing the stork yard sign?

The personalized keepsake sign(s) will be left hanging on the front door in one of our Poppy Stork/Urban Storks bags. We will not ring the doorbell or knock on the door in case mom and baby are resting. If you would prefer other arrangements, please let us know when placing the order.

Baby is here. Is it too late to order a stork birth announcement sign?

Not at all! When baby makes his/her appearance is the perfect time to call us.
