I was incredible excited to see my shutterfly box sitting on my front porch when I got home this afternoon. I was just as pleased when I opened it and saw how clear and crisp the image was that I put on the keepsake box! The dimensions of the image I put on the box was 900x600 pixels.
When I ordered the box I was a little nervous about the size of the over all box. Wasn't sure if it was going to be too small. If anything, it was bigger than I had anticipated which I'm thoroughly pleased with.
One thing I wasn't expecting, but is okay, was the color of the box. I know depending on the monitor a person has, that colors will appear slightly differently. When looking at the box on my monitor it appeared brownish red, but when I looked at the actual box in my hand, I feel it was a little more red than I had anticipated of the brownish red color.
Other than that everything was perfect! The picture on my keepsake box looked identical to the one I uploaded to the website as far as clarity, orientation, and color goes. Overall, very pleased!

Upon recently becoming a new mother, i went on Shutterfly to order some pics. I stumbled upon this keepsake box and decided to order to keep some of baby's precious mementos. It arrived in the mail today, and it was absolutely perfect. It really exceeded what i originally expected. The picture tile on top is sturdy, great quality, the wood is beautiful and the fabric inside is just perfect. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, makes a perfect gift.

Average Quality Overall
I have to say, I was SO excited to get this for my boyfriend for Christmas to hold his award pins. I just got it in yesterday and was disappointed. From the picture it looks like it would be a sturdy box, but it feels kind of cheap when holding it. I'm concerned about how long it will hold up as he uses it.
The thing I was most upset about was the image quality. The picture I sent was vibrant and clear (I've had it printed before, so I know it is high quality). The picture printed on the box has a slight reddish brown tint to it and is ever so slightly blurry. Perhaps it is to match the wood, but it is not what I would have wanted. I would have thought it was my fault with the picture, but I ordered the pencil holder as well for my father, and the coloring and clarity is off as well. I worked at a photo studio that had items like this for sale, and I know that good quality can be achieved.
All in all, a nice gift I'm sure he will like, but buyers should be aware of what they are getting :)

Great the first time
I ordered this in 2011 from kodak, since kodak gallery is now shutterfly I'm writeing this reveiw here, the box was perfect when I ordered it, I got it for my mother in law, I went into photoshop and cut the picture square then uploaded it, you should have this in a multi-picture box, I prefer the red wood but the site that has three-pictures on the box only has it in black

I bought this for my sister after her Husband passed away. She had some little things that she wanted to keep and I saw this on the site. I knew I needed to get this for her so she had a safe place to keep some of his things and to add a beautiful picture of both of them for her to see everyday. This box exceeded my expectations. It is very well made and the picture on the tile is of very high quality. The wood is beautiful and the lining on the inside is prefect. Awesome gift and will be cherished for many years to come.

I purchased the keepsake box as a gift for a friend. What you cannot tell from the picture on the website is that the image is placed on a tile that is crafted in the wooden box. I absolutely love it. The wood of the box, the size, the tile on top makes for a truly wonderful present to mark an important memory.

Absolutely love it!
Purchased for my sons grandma for Valentines day. Read the reviews prior and was unsure of what to expect upon arrival. This was by far the best photo gift/idea I've ever seen or purchased. Not only did I love it, but so did grandma. Quality is great along with everything else. The inside is white which makes it look elegant and pricey. I don't have a single complaint and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. I will buy again in the future for myself!

One of the Best Shutterfly products
I was really thrilled when i received this product. The box was much bigger than i thought it would be, with the quality of the wood being sturdy and a very professional finish. The photograph itself was printed very clearly and the colours vibrant. This is definitely the best shutterfly product that i have purchased thus far. It makes a great gift for mothers day or father's day. Highly recommended!

Photo tile printed wrong
So, there was a small problem with my photo (it wasn't quite square enough) so I put it on a white background and carefully positioned the request so that there was equal white space above and below. Forget it - they put the colored section of the photo starting at the bottom of the tile, and all the white space on the top!! Luckily the sky is pale, so it doesn't look too terrible, but there is still a funny line and my sister's head is squished into the bottom corner. Don't expect them to position your photo the way you tell them to.
They get 2 stars, because apart from the screwup with the photo the product is nice.

Great product, high quality
I got this as a gift for my dad with a picture of my daughter and my recently deceased grandmother and the product turned out amazing. The photo was clear and the quality was very nice. Box was a great size as well. The gift was very well received. A great unique gift idea!

I had read the reviews which all appeared to be pretty good. This box exceeded my expectations. The picture makes it look tiny but its not at all. The picture I had put on it turned out really amazing and the box quality was really nice. I know that person that will be getting this box will be extremely happy.
Thanks to everyone before me that wrote a review.

Wonderful gift for husbands!
I struggle ever Christmas, and birthday for my husband. Two years ago for Christmas I got this keepsake box for him, with a picture of our kids on it. He loved it! I was very impressed with the look of it. Very sturdy, good quality all around. Perfect for a man.

I love the keepsake box I just received. There was only one thing I would like to comment on. When I opened the box it came in, the tile fell off. I was happy it landed on the table and not on the floor. Now trying to remove the glue on the backing and will try to re glue it back on the box.
Thanks for your wonderful products.

So close to perfect, Shutterfly!
Reasons you'll like the box - the photo tile is extremely high quality (better than I expected), the size is great for storing more than a pair of earrings, and the wood finish is an attractive cherry color.
Reasons you might NOT like the box - the felt lining inside is white, already showing dust marks when I took it out of the box as a new product, and it cheapens the overall product. I have no idea why they didn't leave the wood bare inside or even have the typical dark lining. One detail that may bother some customers (although I was fine with it) - the box is extremely high gloss!

I was very disappointed with the keepsake box. I am not sure if I received a defect, but It did not hold up for more then 2 weeks. By then I had actually forgotten to write or call the company. I have been happy with everything else that I have ordered from them.

FABULOUS! Great quality. Excellent buy.
This is more than just a keepsake; it's a memory forever encrusted in a beautiful cherry wood box. This is super high quality, the picture tile is magnificent, and it's just a wonderful buy. Don't think twice, just get it!

This is a gorgeous, beautifully crafted product. Only criticism I have is--the interior felt should not be white, as it shows dirt. Should be gray or any other color.

Over all this is an awesome gift but the box is actually plastic looking hardwood.

Made a special box for my mom's 60th birthday with one of her favorite pictures. She absolutely loves it and it is displayed proudly in her home.
