"I love the Shutterfly greeting cards because you can put something inside, outside, and on the back, on four panels, for a price that is very competitive with professional photography greeting cards where you can only put something on the front or back. I like putting sayings inside my cards and additional images. I find the printing on card stock and the satin finish both very very pleasing. I purchased a matching labels with my cards, Fix them over the Shutterfly logo, and sell them in local stores. People are amazed."
"I really like choosing the Upload Your Own Design option, as it gives me the most creative flexibility to design a card, that is really "my" design with the different layouts and elements. The print quality is excellent and paper is nice and thick. Highly recommend!"
"I created my design in PicMonkey and then uploaded it to Shutterfly. My cards printed exactly how they appeared on my screen. They also came sooner than expected."
"I truly enjoy putting together ideas for cards etc. This company does a great job on providing the necessary components and making the process user friendly. The photos have been great and the cards are specially nice with high-quality card stock."
"In the past I've ordered cards with our photo on it but this year I ordered cards with a holiday painting that I just recently completed and I couldn't be happier."
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.
