What customers have to say about our Fleece Photo Blankets
October 18, 2013Another Satisfied Fleece Blanket Customer
"I ordered two (2) Fleece Photo Blankets recently as Christmas presents for my nieces.
They came out BEAUTIFULLY.
I had my doubts, especially since the photos I used were not (initially) of the highest resolution, but they came out looking great. Here are a few more observations and tips:
What I ordered:
- Two (2) 60x80 Fleece Photo Blankets with 8 images on each.
- I chose the color black, with a white monogram initial in the center of each.
- Excellent photo fidelity.
- Beautiful vibrant colors.
- Extremely fast turnaround (it took less than a week from the time I placed my order to when they arrived via FedEx!)
- The blankets themselves are fine... but not anything you would buy without the photos on them. The fleece is not the type you normally wear as outerwear, i.e., it has no "tufts", but this is of course so the photos themselves will print better, i.e., they obviously need a flat surface.
- The color you choose is only on the photo side of the blanket. The other side is white.
- If you're worried about photo resolution, here are a few things to know. I literally used a few wallet-sized printed photos, and they came out fine. The trick is to "up" the resolution, either via the scanning process (to make them digital) or via a photo manipulation program like Photoshop Elements (which is what I used). You would think that turning a 300K photo into a 10M photo wouldn't work... but it did. The photos of my nieces turned out very nice indeed when "blanket-sized".
- Of course, photos taken with a digital camera with a decent number of megapixels will already be of high enough resolution, so you'll be good to go.
- When you upload the photos and insert them into the blanket template of your choosing, Shutterfly will let you know if the resolution is big enough. If it's not, there will be a red "X" on the photo.
- BTW, when I came online to write this review, I found out that the same blankets I bought last week were now on sale "

"My wife and I just received 2 different Fleece Photo Blankets on March 7, 2014 and we are VERY pleased with the HIGH quality of both blankets. The picture images are very clear, and carefully centered on the blankets. Our first order with Shutterfly (also a Fleece Photo Blanket) was approx. 1 year ago and it was also EXCELLENT quality. Thank you Shutterfly."

"I ordered this fleece blanket as a gift for my mother. I had 4 pictures that weren't the best quality, but it was all I had. This blanket turned out AMAZING and my mother absolutely loved it. The pictures were clear and the quality of the blanket was way better than I expected. I wouldn't hesitate again before ordering from shutterfly. Thank you!!!"

"I had ordered a fleece blanket for a friend for her birthday. I wasn't sure what to expect for the quality or how the pictures would look on this material. I was absolutely amazed at how clear they were - not blurry in the least. I think this would probably be best used a decoration as a wall hanging, but it can be used for a blanket. I am absolutely 100% satifisfied with this purchase!"

"I bought this for my sister for a graduation present since she will be leaving for college soon. It turned out perfect! I was shocked as to the clarity of the pictures. It looked exactly as it did on the print preview. The only thing I was surprised about was the thickness of the blanket. This is not what I think of as a traditional fleece. It is not a very thick blanket but I'm sure it will still keep her warm. Super happy with how this turned out. I will want one for myself in the future."
