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."

"This blanket is a perfect gift - for grandparents, parents, pet owners, you name it. So far I've bought 6 and definitely look forward to more. Everyone has loved their blankets. It's a great size, the photos come out with beautiful clarity, and the blanket is soft and a nice feeling fleece.
Also - on some of the blankets, I've opted to write a personal message in the center square as opposed to the monogram - these were really well received.
I had a small issue on one of the blankets, and I just want to say how awesome Shutterfly is for dealing with it so quickly and hassle-free for me. THANKS SHUTTERFLY YOU GUYS ROCK!"

"Absolutely awesome!! I had a fleece throw made of a collection of pictures of my mother with each of her great grandchildren with the words "We love you Amma Ginny" in the center. My thoughts were that all that love would keep her warm through a Michigan long winter. She was overwhelmed with the throw with the individual pictures of her with each great grandchildren in an activity they had shared. Everything about this throw from very beginning to delivery was handled ...five stars!!! thank you for helping me give "the" gift to remember this Christmas!!"
