Frequently asked questions
hOW DOES STORK RENTAL WORK?
Get in touch with us as soon as you know you want to reserve a stork! Pre-orders are appreciated but not required. However the more time we have to customize the keepsake, the better! The customized bundle will read the newborn’s first and middle name, weight, length, and date of birth. Once the baby is born, contact us with the missing information we need to finish the bundle. We will need the delivery address, a contact phone number, (gate code if applicable), and a message for the new parents that will be written on a card to be left on their doorstep. To make the Stork delivery even more special, let us know when mom and baby will be discharged and Storks 4 You will do our best to be set up before mom and baby get home from the hospital. Our adorable 6 ft stork and personalized baby bundle will then announce the BIG news for 7 days! Upon removal of the stork, the new parents will be left with the personalized keepsake bundle to treasure forever. They’re guaranteed to love it!

I live in an apartment or condo and I don’t have a yard. Can I still rent a stork?
Yes, you don’t have to have a yard or lawn to rent a stork. We have sturdy, steel-plated, portable stands that we attach the stork to. The announcement can be displayed at the entrance of your apartment or condo but please keep in mind, the surface must be flat!
Can I order signs for siblings?
Yes! We have Star shaped custom sibling signs. These are keepsakes too! Having their STAR alongside the birth announcement helps the newly promoted big brother or sister really feel included in the big event! They are only $25 for the first one and $20 for each subsequent star sibling sign. Check out our Gallery for samples.
DO you have signs for grandparents?
Grandparents can also rent a sign proclaiming “We have a grandson!” or “I am a grandmother!”. When ordered separately, the cost is $75 for 7 days. If ordered at the same time as the birth announcement sign, the 7 day fee for the grandparent sign is only $50. Please Note: Keepsake bundles not included with Grandparent Sign.
DO you have other options for expectant mothers?
Yes! Our storks are perfect to greet guests at baby showers or to help announce the baby’s gender at a gender reveal party!
A 1 day rental will include a bundle that can read “It’s a (Girl/Boy)!” or “The Shower is Here!”
Another option is to personalize the package for an additional fee, (Please see our ‘Pricing’ page) This includes a bundle for the mommy-to-be to keep. The following options are available for the custom bundle: “Welcome to (Mother’s Name) Baby Shower” “(Mother’s Name) is Having a (Girl/Boy)” “Showering (Mother’s Name) with Love”
For a gender reveal party – our storks greet guests at the door holding a bundle that says “Blue or Pink What Do You Think?”. We can also customize the bundle and wrap it like a present for the mother to be to be surprised the day of the event.
Can the Storks be Rented for Other announcements?
Of Course! We can customize any message for you. Our stork can announce a pregnancy – “We are expecting in July!” Our stork can delight a family member – “Sam is going to be an aunt!” or “Eileen is going to be a grandmother!”. Our stork can make a special announcement – “We are having twins!”
