What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

Love these snowflake Christmas cards!
"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"

A Nice, Unconventional Holiday Card
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.)
Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere.
There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card.
Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card.
Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."

Photoless Christmas Cards
Christmas cards are a fun tradition, and photo cards are becoming increasingly popular. Photo Christmas cards can be a great way to highlight yourself or your family, but not everyone wishes to make a photo front and center. Luckily, it’s possible to get no photo Christmas cards that can still be personalized with unique season’s greetings.
Say Merry Christmas with Custom Photoless Christmas Cards
Want to say “happy holidays” in a personal way without attaching a photo? No photo Christmas cards and ornament cards make great choices. You can add a one-of-a-kind message to these cards so they still have your unique touch. You can include your name, your family’s surname, each family member’s name, a personal greeting or a combination of any of the above. If you decide to add a photo partway through creating this greeting card online, it’s easy to do so.
There are many reasons why someone may want to create a unique card without a photo. Perhaps you’re planning to include a loose photo inside the card. Maybe you don’t want you or your family members to be the focus of the card. No photo Christmas cards allow you to create a card that can be mass produced for easy mailing but still distinctive enough to be personal. With these cards, you won’t have to type up a greeting, print it out en masse, cut it into separate messages and glue or staple each message to the card. Instead, the cards are professionally crafted, saving you time and adding a level of sophistication.
Other Ways to Personalize Your Cards
Once you’ve created your card, you might want to select personalized Christmas address labels for the envelopes. These can further reflect your holiday spirit while still remaining photo-free. There are many types of address labels to choose from. Choose a cozy Christmas theme to match the holiday, or you can choose a more general theme that can be used all year. Personalized postage stamps can also dress up your envelope, for even more holiday cheer.
