Lafayette, LA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/03/2010 -- Family and friends spend an average of $200 to $300 on baby showers, but those wanting to take advantage of the hottest trends had to up their budget significantly. One of the largest online stationery vendors is making it more affordable for shower hosts to choose a trendy baby shower invitation for their event.
Cards-411, one of the leading Internet-based providers of baby event stationery, expanded their selection of cards to include trendsetting choices. For example, the site now offers coed baby shower cards and baby shower invitations for twins. The expansion is only part of the story, however.
While other shower invitation providers also added these types of cards to their sites, Cards-411 offers them at lower prices than the competition so shower hosts can purchase the cards for less while still taking advantage of the hottest trends in showers.
"We know our customers want to save money, but they also want to keep up with the times," explains Dawn McIntosh, Operating Manager for Cards-411, "so we keep expanding our selection of one-of-a-kind cards to keep up with the latest trends. We just don't charge our customers more for that like some of our competitors do."
Baby shower invitations for sprinkle events are another example of one of these trends. Sprinkle parties are smaller versions of showers. They are a great option when a couple is welcoming a second or third baby into the family and don't need big ticket items, such as high chairs and playpens. Old school etiquette rules said showers should only be thrown for the first baby so the sprinkle option works as a compromise between the old rules and modern needs.
Like all of their baby shower invitation and birth announcement choices, customers can receive 10 free invites with their order or for a limited time they can purchase the cards for only 99 cents each. Additionally, orders for over $100 receive free shipping and customization options for the cards are available at no extra cost. These services help Cards-411 stay ahead of the competition in both traditional and trendy baby shower invitation sales.
Located in Louisiana, Cards-411 has grown into the premiere site for baby-related stationery on the Internet. By offering customizable choices for girl baby shower invites, modern baby shower invitations, and boy baby shower ideas, the site has established its reputation as one of the largest online stationery providers. Plus, their entire selection of cards is 100% unique. Each card design is created by the company's in-house creative team. For millions of expecting and current parents, Cards-411 has become the go-to source for affordable, customizable, and unique birth announcements. Features, such as the preview engine, keep the company's millions of customers coming back and recommending the site to their friends and family for baby shower invitation buying and more.
