"Each year I buy 2 patterns of Christmas cards, make my own birthday cards, design the calendar for the coming year, make a book, and create presents, such as puzzles, for all my family. It would be plain and bare without them. Fortunately, even for a very senior citizen, the work is not challenging and very satisfying. Thanks, guys."
"Turned out great for another Merry Christmas card."
"We love the quality and appreciate the opportunity for a head start on Christmas cards!"
"All of my birthday and holiday greetings come from Shutterfly. No more generic, cookie-cutter store-bought cards. And bonus, I can have them mailed directly to my out-of-town friends and family! No wonder that I have been told that my cards are the best; they're all personalized and make my loved ones feel special."
"I have ordered my Christmas cards from Shutterfly for the past several years. I have NEVER been disappointed by the way they turn out. I will continue to use them in the future. Also, an FYI, I have ordered several of their photo books (set up what I want) and they ALWAYS turn out beautiful."
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!
