"My grandson Jacob, who turns 13 this week, LOVES the San Diego Chargers. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find Chargers birthday cards in stores? Actually, I've never found one. This is the third year I've made him a Chargers card on Shutterfly, and he has been thrilled, especially since I've inadvertently chosen Google Image photos that include his favorite players. This year's card is still in the mail on its way to him, but he took last year's card to bed with him because he loved it so much. And the beauty is that the Shutterfly cards are mostly less expensive than store-bought cards. I make them for everyone in my family, based on what they love or what they happen to be interested at the time of their birthday or graduation or other special event. I have also made wedding cards for people, using pictures of their wedding venue taken before the event. I've made anniversary cards, new baby cards, Mother's Day cards, Father's Day cards, Thanksgiving cards, Christmas cards, Easter cards, valentines, and thank-you cards. It takes more work to make these cards than it does to buy a card off the shelf, but the rewards to everyone are priceless. The card quality is great and consistent, and I am grateful everyday that I can do something this simple that brings so much joy to my family members and friends, but especially to my eight grandchildren."
October 5, 2012I love Shutterfly photo birthday cards !
"I have 10 grandchildren all under 15... I have digital photos of them from day one and every year make 10 birthday cards. I like the folded birthday cards that give me a choice of inserting my photos, usually 4 to 6 photos. I take current and previous special photos of each individual child and place it on the birthday card that I am making. I can then choose special words for each child in wishing them a happy birthday. Each child has saved their cards through the years and I will see the cards on their shelf in their room from time to time. I love this birthday project and it gives me a chance to relook at my photos which are on my computer....and my Shutterfly birthday card lets them know how special that they are!"

"This is such a nice card and the photo makes it so personal. There is place for three different photos and I just love it."
October 1, 2012Rave Rewiews on many things I have made on Shutterfly
"Not long ago I made a card for my friend who recently became an aunt again. I was able to choose from many
different styles and sizes and picked the one I liked the best. I chose one that I could put pictures in of her holding the baby and the baby alone. I also was able to write a lot to her congratulating her and other things. It turned out beautifully and she received the card quickly and loved it! I was so pleased it turned out so well!
I have made many cards, photo books at least once every year full of everything that happened during the year, etc.
The photo books make great gifts for mothers day or fathers day too!
They also make great gifts full of pregnancy photos and first year photos for friends that are moms of baby's/babies just turning one. It is so great because they can have a keepsake book of all those wonderful memories. They have all loved them!
I have also even made two pages. The first one was to show off my wedding pictures and wedding shower photos. The other page I made was full of pictures of us saying goodbye to friends when we moved. Also, pictures of our new house and pictures of things around the new area so our friends and family could see them.
I have loved that everything I have created on this site except some things that weren't quite right about one book. When I didn't love it they sent me a replacement without me even returning the book that wasn't right.
Shutterfly also is a great place for me to save my pictures on so that if my computer crashes or something happens to it I have all my pictures saved on Shutterfly. It is free to save a ton of pictures!
I have recommended Shutterfly to many friends because I love it so much and the prices are really reasonable for what you get. Also, Shutterfly gives you free things or huge discounts on things all the time which isn't something most companies do.
Sorry I have been rambling but I just wanted to share all the things I love about Shutterfly!
September 10, 2012Impressive Cards!
"I recently ordered several designs from Shutterfly as well as from another online competitor and the quality of cards from Shutterfly were so impressive and surpassed those of the other company. Shutterfly offers more editing options too which I fully enjoy. The response time was fast and I especially like the fact that Shutterfly does not charge upload fees like the other company. I should mention too that the envelopes fit the cards perfectly; they are not oversized like the ones the other company provides. At one point, I had to contact Shutterfly's customer service department and the representative was courteous and went above and beyond my expectations. I will continue ordering from Shutterfly. They have earned my business and I have not been disappointed."
