Birth Announcement Form

Use the form below to submit your good news. The Banner publishes birth announcements as a public service. However, we cannot guarantee when an announcement will be published, and we cannot call to notify you of the date it will run. All announcements must include a daytime telephone number and an email address in case any details need to be checked. The parents or grandparents of the child must either currently reside in or previously resided in The Banner's coverage area (all towns/areas within 15 miles of Knightstown) for announcements to be published. Former residents please indicate where in the local area you previously resided.

A black-and-white or good-quality color photo of your baby may be submitted. Photographs may be brought to the newspaper office at 24 N. Washington Street in Knightstown, mailed to: The Banner, PO Box 116, Knightstown, IN 46148 or emailed to bannergm@comcast.net. Also, on the confirmation page following completion of the form below there will be an option for you to upload a photo from your computer .

We reserve the right to edit announcements, to determine size and location of both pictures and copy and to refuse photos of unacceptable quality and/or size. Acceptable sizes are wallet size and up to 8x10s. No profiles, Polaroid or long-distance shots will be accepted. Photos may be picked up at the newspaper's office after publication or will be returned by mail if a self-addressed, stamped envelope is provided.
