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 absolutely loved it, the only thing I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I choose a red blanket and the only issued is that they painted it, meaning that the back of the blanket is white and the front is red. I would have loved it more is it was all red. Never the less I loved it and I would recommend it."

"I had the large blanket made for my 12-year old son with his football season football pictures. It turned out awesome! The quality is superb and it is so soft. My son just loves it!"

"I was very impressed with the quality of this blanket. I originally read the reviews of others who all gave it 5 stars, but still wasn't sure how it would turn out. Well, it turned out awesome! I ended up choosing black for my color and the backside of the blanket stays white, which wasn't a big deal. The pictures were BEAUTIFUL and the blanket was thicker than what I thought. In the center, instead of doing the letter thats viewed, I wrote a little saying. It was a hit! This was a gift for my in-laws for Xmas and they absolutely LOVED the blanket! I did read that the blanket is washable which is great, however, we haven't washed it yet so not sure how the blanket is afterwards. I would definitely recommend this to others...it makes a fabulous gift!! Thank you Shutterfly!!"
