Always print these cards on a thicker card stock – we recommend at least 170 gsm or 200 gsm.

The best way to print these baby milestone cards is to go to your local printshop. If this is not an option for you right now, a home printer will be fine too. In that case, inktjet printers do the best job – but laser printers can be fine too. The best printer is the one you have!

Please note that printed colours can look different from the colours on your screen. Some printers might automatically scale the PDF a little. Since the cards are square, this should not be an issue. If you like. you can scale down the size further.

How do I cut the free baby milestone cards?

If you have a paper trimmer or guillotine, that’s a great option. This will give you the cleanest cut. But of course your household scissors or a ruler and craft knife will be fine too.

The cards pictured have a rounded corner. Sharp corners can be a little tricky around small babies. We had this done at a professional printer. But of course you can get creative at home too! You can use scissors or a punch tool to shape the corners if you like.

How do I take good photos with the milestone cards?

Photographing babies can be tricky. Some quick tips on shooting pictures with these cards:

  • Lay your newborn baby down on their back with the cards on their tummy or next to them. It can be fun to have older babies sit up and hold the card.
  • Try to shoot in a spot with as much natural light as possible. Avoid using flash – better for your baby and your photo 🙂 If you’re going for consistency in your photo series, shoot them in the same spot and at the same time of day.
  • Choose a neutral backdrop such as a blanket or duvet cover. Try to think about colours in the clothes of your baby if you can. These prints pop most if they do not complete with a busy print on your baby’s outfit.
  • If you’re shooting from above, try to hold cour phone or camera flush with the surface. In other words, hold it perfectly horizontally if you can. This avoids weird distortion effects.
  • Take many, many, many photos. You can always delete the mishaps and closed eyes afterwards.
