Sending out baby shower invitations is one of the first steps of organizing this event, and Staples offers a large range of invitation templates.

Decide Who to Invite

Close family, whether they live nearby or not, should receive invitations so they have the opportunity to bless the parents-to-be. Consult with the expectant mother's immediate family or partner to decide which friends to invite.

Get the Timing Right

Baby showers are usually held around the middle of the third trimester of pregnancy. Send out the baby shower invitations around six weeks before the date of the event to give guests time to RSVP and choose a gift.

What Are the Styles of Baby Shower Invitations?

Invitations come in two sizes: 4 x 8 inches and 5 x 7 inches. They may be printed on one or both sides and have a portrait or landscape format. Baby showers often have a specific color scheme or theme, and Staples has a variety of cards to choose from so it's easy to find a match.

When Do You Get the Cards?

Baby shower invitations are available for same-day service for pickup from your nearest Staples the day after you've ordered them. Customers can opt for delivery, which occurs five to seven days after the order is placed.
