Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Give us a call as soon as you know you want to reserve a stork. Pre-orders are appreciated but not necessary. The more time we have to customize the keepsake, the better! Once the baby is born, call us back with the missing information we need to finish the bundle. The bundle will read the newborns first and middle name, weight, length and date of birth. Also please have the delivery address, phone number, gate code (if needed) and a note for the parents that will be written on the card left on their doorstep. The Daily Stork strive to arrive before mom and baby comes home from the hospital to make a memorable moment. Please indicate when mom and baby is discharged to come home. Our adorable 6ft. stork and personalized baby bundle will announce the BIG news for 7 days. Upon removal of the stork, the new parents will be left with the keepsake bundle to treasure forever. They're guarenteed to love it!
