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 order four of the Gallery Monogram Fleece Blankets as gifts for my grandchildren this past Christmas. This was the first time ordering through Shutterfly and I was very skeptical as I received notices concerning the "low resolution" of some pictures. After reading other reviews, some of whom had the same problem as I did, I decided to take the chance and ordered the blankets. I was so thrilled when I received my order as the pictures came out beautiful and the craftmanship of the product was far more than I expected. I have since placed another order using the family portraits I received as gifts for Christmas. It also turned out beautiful. Any future orders will definitely be place through Shutterfly. Don't hesitate to place an order through this company...you will be very satisfied!"

"This was much better quality than ever imagined, and it was the favorite Christmas gift of the day. It came quickly and was packaged well in a zipper plastic bag."

"We bought this as a christmas gift for my stepdaughter that lives a few states away from us. When I got it in the mail this week I had to check it out. It's amazing! The pictures that were coming up as low resolution came out perfect! Only the front side of the blanket is colored which is alright. We picked turquoise and the color looks awesome. We personalized it with a short message in the middle. She's going to love it! Great way for her to keep our side of the family with her when she's at her mom's. Definitely will be ordering more of these!"
