"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.) Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere. There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card. Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card. Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."
"Just what I wanted looks great! I never need a lot of holiday cards so this was just right and they are beautiful."
"I was very pleased with my Christmas Cards and people have commented to me that they loved receiving them. The only thing I would have changed is that the message inside was printed too large, but that is the size I chose and I'm to blame for that. I wish I could have seen it better and had known it was so large."
"I love cards with different photo options! I have a large family, and I love to have cards with an individual photo of each child, plus at least one group photo. This card is easy to personalize, and has a lot of different color options too! I don’t always plan a holiday photo, so this way I can make the card look good with whatever pictures I end up using. The snowflakes are an added bonus, they’re my favorite holiday card background!"
The holidays are a joyous time of the year for millions of people around the world. If you are like most of these people, then you are probably planning on spending the holiday in the company of your loved ones. In order for these get-togethers to go smoothly, however, you are going to have to spend a fair amount of time getting everything organized and purchasing gifts for all of the people closest to you. Because you’re going to be so busy, certain things are going to take a greater priority over others. If you start to receive Christmas cards in the mail only to realize that you have yet to purchase any, consider investing in a set of photo collage Christmas cards from Shutterfly.
There are many ways to arrange a set of photographs. When it comes to your Christmas cards, you want to present them in a way that catches the eyes of the recipients, potentially earning a spot on their kitchen counter or refrigerator. With Shutterfly’s photo collage Christmas cards, you have a plethora of design options at your fingertips. Perhaps you only want to use two or three photos in order to surround them with festive graphics and phrases.
On the other hand, you can keep the graphics and wording to a minimum, instead filling the cards with five or six photos of smiling faces. With additional options such as landscape or portrait orientations and alternate trims, you can craft a set of cards that are truly unique. Convert these cards into ornament Christmas cards for everyone to enjoy when decorating the Christmas tree.
While Christmas arguably gets the most fanfare of any occasion that takes place in your typical year, there are going to be many more special events that require your attention. Whether you need bridal shower invitations for when a friend decides to tie the knot or baby shower invitations to celebrate a new arrival, Shutterfly has what you need.
