"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!"

"Excellent job! Like that photos can be put on all four sides so I can highlight more of my photos."

"I have ordered cards, photo books and a calendar from Shutterly.com and I have no complaints.
Some tiny smudges in only one of my photobooks made me wish there would be no hurry in shipping them to me to fully dry each page...but the cards and calendar were perfect!
More power to Shutterfly who could be proud of the materials used for printing!

"I have ordered several of the folded greeting cards and used them for birthday wishes. I can get creative with my wishes or keep it simple and I use my own cakes as the front picture. So, when I can't bake that special someone a cake I can send them a picture of a cake. It's the thought that matters, right!"
