This modern and simple 3-photo birth announcement is for the parents that want to highlight more than one photo of their beautiful baby. The design is simple with a sophisticated touch.

I definitely prefer the white - just with a white outline stroke wo make it heavier.

Do you think that the white type in the latest revision is readable or should I change it back to blue?

I like it a lot - much better! You may want to add an outline - maybe 0.25 or 0.50 stroke around the light text to make it stand out a little more, but still keeping it thinner than the medium text (if it looks good to you). This is a great modern, multi-photo design!

LOVE your photos and baby's name at their intersection. I don't think the information text and heart fit the rest of the card - I think maybe that text would look better if it were also all white and full justified between the 1/4" margin lines (right now, your text extends outside the allowable margin for text). Maybe put all the info on one line, divided by | vertical lines |? I would leave the heart out - this is such a great "clean" and "modern" concept without it. Good luck!
