"Prints arrived beautiful and on time."
"I chose this card based on the colors we all were wearing and I had so many comments and compliments! Can't wait to pick another Shutterfly card next Christmas/New Years."
"We enjoy sending out New Year's cards rather than Christmas cards, as we have friends of many faiths we like to remember during the holidays. This card gives you space for lots of photos and short narratives - just enough words to keep friends and family informed without one of those long, boring two-page letters. We've received many compliments on the cards and great feedback."
"Sturdy and beautiful! Love the layouts and cropping ability!"
"Loved how it turned out"
If you’re thinking about doing a family photo Christmas card for the first time, you might not be sure what to have everyone wear. Photo Christmas cards are an excellent choice for your yearly holiday card. Recipients often love the personal touch and the joy of seeing the sender’s family up close and having fun. There are no firm rules about how to dress for a family photo, but some tricks of the trade can certainly help.
For style, you’ll want to make sure everyone looks like they belong at the same location. If one person is dressed up and another is dressed down, it can make the card look off balance. Instead, have everyone dress for the same event, whether it’s fancy, laid back, for a 70-degree day or for a 30-degree day.
There are a few great options for color. You can choose one or multicolor Christmas cards to weave throughout the picture that complements each other. For example, someone can have a red scarf and a blue checkered shirt, and another person can have red shoes and a blue ski hat. Just make sure you don’t have everyone dressed with the same top color and the same bottom color, or it can bring attention away from the people in the picture and have it placed on the clothing instead. Another color consideration is whether you want to have muted colors or vibrant colors. Either option works, as long as it’s consistent
Your Christmas card photo can take place in any number of locations. Just choose something that feels comfortable for you. In front of the fireplace is always cozy, or any setup that displays spending time with family. Examples of the latter are on a trail, having fun in the snow or sitting under a tree. The most important tip for a successful Christmas photo is to have fun!
Once you have your perfect photo, you can choose your perfect card. Shutterfly has a wide variety of cards to choose from, including iconic Christmas cards and cards to celebrate a baby’s first Christmas. Your card is sure to be a big hit.
