1. Choose your desired note style (see product photos for numbered note examples)

2. Choose your desired little box closure style (see product photos for closure style examples)

3. Add your eggs to your shopping cart.

4. Type your note wording into the "seller notes" box (the box appears when you view your shopping cart). Please type your desired wording like this:
Line 1: Your Wording
Line 2: Your Wording
Line 3: Your Wording

Your wording will be put on your note exactly as you type it.

Note: If you are ordering a single egg, and it's shipping directly to your family and friends (see the FAQ section below), you will definitely want to add your names at the bottom of the note, otherwise they won't know who the package is from, since it has our Wilsonville return address on it. ;-)

5. Place your order, selecting your desired shipping speed (note: purchase of faster shipping speeds up the USPS transit time, but does not speed up the production time here in the shop - we have a Rush My Order add-on listing available for speeding up shop production time :-)

6. Your order will ship out from the shop in 2-5 business days (our business days are Monday through Friday - we are closed on the weekends). We usually ship within 1-3 business days, but it depends on the season, as we occasionally need the full 5 business days to get to your order in the queue because of high order volume. We love that our customers are excited about their orders, so we will always strive to get your order into the mail as soon as humanly possible!

7. Receive your individually packaged eggs and either hand them out to all of your family and friends, or address them, and send them through the mail!


Q: What if I want different eggs in my order to say different things?
A: No problem! I'll simply write on the bottom of each box in pencil, indicating which eggs are which.

Q: Can you ship directly to my family and friends?
A: We'd be happy to ship directly to your family and friends if you place completely separate orders for each destination, each with the appropriate address in the shipping-address-entry field. Please remind us (in the seller notes box) when you check out for each item, that that order is going straight to your recipient, and we'll leave out the packing slip and use neutral tissue paper (instead of the baby-pastel colors we normally use - wouldn't want to give away the surprise before they crack the egg!).

These customizable quail egg pregnancy announcements and baby shower invitations are sure to be memorable keepsakes for all who receive them.

Each unit contains an adorable, real quail egg nestled into a bed of Spanish moss in a box with "crack me" stamped on the inside of the top flap. The unfertilized quail eggs are purchased from a local farmer, emptied and cleaned, and your customized, rolled note is slipped into the inside to await the big reveal when your recipients crack the egg! Note that because the color of these beautiful little eggs varies in nature, not all eggs will look alike - they are all uniquely gorgeous!

The little brown boxes are tied with raffia ribbon and packed snugly and individually into bubble-wrap-padded boxes for individual mailing to your recipients. These 3"x3"x3" white shipping boxes are called "indestructo" shipping boxes for a reason. They will keep your delicate invitations safe and sound in the mail.


You will receive your individually packaged units (in their uncrushable boxes) in a larger box for your convenience. The white mailers will be ready to address and send as soon as you receive them!

When you take a stack of these little boxes to the post office to mail them to your friends and loved ones, you'll be happy to know that these tiny boxes are so small and light (under 3 oz.) that they qualify for USPS First Class shipping at only $2.74 per box.

All eggs in any given order will ship from our shop to only ONE address. We'd be happy to ship single eggs directly to your family and friends if you place a separate order for each separate address.

Curious about the total shipping cost of your order? If you add your desired quantity to your shopping cart, it will be calculated for you, with different shipping options available.
