"Because the family could not be together before Christmas, we chose to send a New Years card this year. My husband and I have only been married for four years and we wanted to send a "blended family" greeting this year. The layout provided by Shutterfly was perfect for our needs."
"I have so much fun making unique gifts with my pictures. It makes me feel professional when I am very much an amateur."
"Cheerful colors, very nice quality! Perfect New Year's card. I loved the envelope design options as well, tied it all together."
"We loved our card as did all those to whom we sent it. Cardstock was great and the card was very easy to make on shutterfly."
"Great quality, able to really customize with words and pictures."
As autumn approaches each year, many people start to think ahead to the Christmas season. This is such an important time of year that you may need many weeks to prepare; even so, many people struggle to finish their task list in time. Let Shutterfly simplify your Christmas preparations this year by helping you create attractive three photo Christmas cards and other seasonal pieces of correspondence.
Our attractive designs are exclusive to us; you will not find them anywhere else. This gives our cards a fresh look that everyone on your mailing list is sure to enjoy. This year, begin preparing to send Christmas cards well in advance of the holiday and enjoy a less stressful season.
Making Your List
Your Christmas card list should begin with your family and close relatives. Include parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces, kids, and grandkids. Next add close friends and neighbors to the list. Some of these addresses you may need to ask for, so it is a good idea to begin preparing this list early. Finally, add the names of any workplace associates, business holiday card messages to contacts, or friendly acquaintances with whom you have exchanged cards in the past.
Once you’ve made the first draft of the list, go through and add or remove names as you feel is appropriate. It is always better to send cards to people than it is to leave them off your list. You can also order a few extra cards in case you forget to add someone. Remember, you can address a three photo Christmas card or other individual cards to entire households.
Preparing the Envelopes
Once your Shutterfly cards have arrived, begin preparing the envelopes. You will need to address each of them with clear handwriting; take your time and check all the information to ensure the address is correct. To save yourself time, use Holiday return address labels. These are also available from Shutterfly; we offer great seasonal and year-round designs. Order your cards and labels today!
