"Every year I order my Xmas cards from here. The high quality card stock is the main reason I come back every year. Once you pick a card the website makes it easy to create. Don't like it? Just as early to change. Fast delivery is the second reason I love Shutterfly. I would highly recommend using Shutterfly and I myself will continue."
"This summer we lost our beloved family dog. When it came time to create Christmas cards we came across this perfect card! We used a family photo of us with our beautiful dog. What a great memorial to her for all to see!"
"These are high quality cards. I love the personalization & they came out even better than I anticipated."
"The turnaround time was amazingly fast. Quality was VERY good."
There are few better ways to keep long-distant relationships intact than to maintain contact around the holidays. Even for those you see regularly, it is a nice surprise to see a piece of mail arrive with your name in the upper left corner. Take your correspondence one step further this year by sending photo holiday cards and let your smile do the talking.
Buying a Holiday Photo Card
A holiday letter used to be common with highlights of the year described along with news of job and relationship changes as well as activities in which you have engaged. With the chaos that tends to invade the holiday season, however, it can be difficult to sit down and pen a prose that is appropriate to send out to all of your addresses. Photo holiday cards allow you to tell the story of your year with one or multiple images set upon a background of festive cheer.
Choosing a Photo
Choose a photo or photos that best sum up the essence of “you.” If you are the outdoorsy type, perhaps a shot on a favorite hiking trail will do. If your family is your everything, a portrait of your clan snuggled close and smiling would be a winner. Consider going black and white for a nostalgic appeal, using a pop of color in the text or background.
Creating Your Own
Nothing says it better than a holiday card made by you. If you have an idea for a card that you know would be just right, tap into your creative juices and create your own. This allows you the freedom to place as many images as you want at any size and shape as well as any text you wish to include throughout the layout. You can then upload your picture-perfect design as a single file to create customized Christmas cards you know you will love.
Photo holiday cards can offer a personal piece of your story and make for a wonderful addition to a home long after the holiday décor has been put up.
