The days are long but the years are short. The precious time you have with your baby is brief and before you know it they are sitting on their own, standing, walking, talking, opening doors, and eating table food. Blink and they’ll be getting on a school bus. Blink again and they’ll be driving. Don’t miss out on preserving those fleeting moments so you can look back on their important firsts. Using custom stickers by Blue Bee Printing, you can record those milestones as they happen.
Stickers for the Month or Week Shirts
Baby clothing is expensive and it’s heartbreakingly short-lived. Sizes last anywhere from one to three months and even if you get the right size you will need to change for the right season. It may be tempting to order custom onesies for monthly or even weekly photoshoots, but you’ll be spending a fortune in clothing that will be worn exactly once. Using custom stickers, you can print labels for each week or month old your baby is and attach them to plain white onesies.
You can apply the same principle to holiday shirts. Why spend the extra money on shirts that say “Baby’s First Christmas” when you can use custom personalized stickers for a fraction of the cost and include their name? You can even celebrate every holiday with a new design. “Hugs and Kisses and Valentine’s Day Wishes,” “I’m Mommy’s Good Luck Charm” for St. Patrick’s Day, Patriotic Memorial Day and Fourth of July stickers with the year. If your family has Taco Tuesday, why not celebrate baby’s first taco? You can be creative and come up with your own holidays and days that are important to you.
Stickers for Baby Books and Photo Albums
Very few parents faithfully fill out the baby books. Most have one or two entries and then life happens. You get busy and prioritize and filling out a book that may or may not ever be read is not as important as changing diapers, midnight feedings, and doctor visits. It’s time consuming to record dates and times, special messages, and find the matching photos. Save some of the time by pre-printing stickers that will go into the baby book. You can attach identifying stickers to photos of first solid food, first birthday, and first time meeting a sibling. Stickers are a great way to fill your baby book without filling up your whole day.
Stickers can help you keep track of what your photos are for. Once you’ve picked up your prints from a photo center or printed them at home, it may not make it into the album right away. Writing on the back of a photo can ruin your prints. The pen will make indentations that show through the front, and if you don’t wait until the ink is dry you can smudge it or transfer it onto another photo in the stack. You can create cute stickers for the backs of the photos that allow you to write on them first and then affix to the photo. Record the baby’s name, date, and what was going on in the photo. If you have twins or more than one child, you may be surprised at how it can be difficult to tell siblings apart in their baby photos, so always include their names!
Stickers for Calendars
Including a blank calendar in your baby book is a fun at-a-glance way to keep track of the first year. Print out blank calendar pages starting the month your baby was born. Create milestone stickers you can have at the ready for when they happen. First steps, first smile, first laugh, first word, first time watching Star Wars– be creative! Don’t just be confined to traditional milestones. Think of the things you’ll want to remember that are important to your family. First time meeting great-grandma, first skinned knee, first trip to the beach, first haircut, first pizza.
Custom stickers by Blue Bee Printing are a creative way to record your baby’s important firsts. And if this is your first time using custom stickers, we can make the process easy because being a parent is hard enough.
