I have been a Shutterfly customer for MANY years, and i have always been pleased with the level of service and the product quality.
THIS BAG IS A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
I realize that this wasn't going to be of lands end / l.l. bean quality, but I expected something more than the $2 bag i get at the market. To boot, i gave this as a mother's day present, and to have a person go out of her way to tell you that it's of a poor quality is embarrassing!
I wish i had read the reviews prior to purchasing :(

Not quite what I expected...
The bag is very cute, but the material that it is made of seems very flimsy. It doesn't appear to be very durable. I have not used it yet, because I just got it, but I am glad that I did not pay full price for it. (I used the $20 gift from Shutterfly). I will use it, as long as it is for something light.

Bag this bag? I can't decide.
I agree with other reviewers that the pic on the site is misleading - the fabric is weird, I guess it's "canvas" in a general sense, but it has so much glazing on it, it makes an unappealing texture. #Maybe that's the surface they need to make the photo stick to it?# Despite that - the bag is quite sturdy & the handles are a good length. The first one I received, the photo #a vertical# was printed squashed as a horizontal - all distorted. When I emailed Shutterfly, they immediately printed a new one & sent it out. Thank you!
A+ for service, C for product.

Like the others, I was initially underwhelmed by my bag. Basically b/c the photo of the bag is misleading. To me, the photo looks like an upright bag -- more deep than wide. When it arrived it was the opposite -- more wide than deep. After you get past this disconnect, the bag is really very good. I felt the quality was good as well as the photo image on it. The measurements are correct. To me the bag seems larger than its measurements. I have used mine to tote items to swim class. It held one very large towel and a swim suit. I would prefer more order options (e.g., a more upright bag). However, the canvas has been very durable. Having photos on the bag makes it unique and fun.

This bag was not a normal Shutterfly product. The bag was poorly made, small, and overall useless!

I'm returning it!
Terrible! "Canvas" is a loosely used term here- this is more like a cheap promotional item. It's not even the quality of the reusable cloth grocery bags I take to the grocery store. The photo is basically an iron on and the coloring is terrible. It looks faded and washed out- it looks nothing like the original photo I used on the bag, and nothing like the picture! Also, the bag is pretty small- there's no way you could fit a beach towel, snorkel AND other items in this bag- absolutely impossible.
I'm sending this one back.

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE PRODUCT
I ordered this product thinking how cute tote for beach,
This tote looks NOTHING like the picture shown on the site
Quality is very poor
and PROPORTIONS are completely different
I would not recommend this product to anyone
I am really surprised by this because so far I was very satisfied with a lot of products from this company

I usually LOVE everything I get from Shutterfly, but this is the WORST product I've seen from them. The tote looks nothing like the picture. It is so small, cheap looking, and the picture quality is awful. I bought it for my mom's birthday and I'm embarrassed to give it to her. The high price ($30) make me think it was going to be a high quality tote. I was sure wrong. If you're looking for a bag, the shopping bags are a much better quality and deal.

Bad print quality. Useless bag.
My bag came with the picture so poorly printed that I will never use it.
Looks cheap and ugly.
