"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."
"I am very pleased with my order. The card is very cute and a good weight. The order arrived sooner than anticipated. My only complaint is that although I used the red eye remover, there was still prominent red eye in the picture. Overall, I would recommend this product."
"Our cards turned out beautiful!! Thank you shutterfly :)"
"With all the rage and popularity over Chevron, this card is perfect for the Holiday season! I love the bright and cheeriness of the colors, but the fact that it still sticks with the distinct red and green of the Holiday season. I have a fabulous idea of how to incorporate this trendy design with our Holiday card for the 2012 season and it'll definitely be what my friends and family see arrive in their mailbox!"
Every year, millions of Christmas cards are exchanged between friends and loved ones around the globe. If you partake in this holiday tradition, then you have probably been sending cards out that, while enjoyable to look at, are likely quite similar to one another from year to year. Are you looking for a way to make some kind of a change this time in order to stand out from the dozens of others that your recipients will undoubtedly be getting? If your answer is yes, then Shutterfly has the solution with a wide selection of 4x8 Christmas cards that will be just different enough to catch people’s attention immediately.
While making the size change from the more standard 5x7 Christmas cards to the longer and more distinctive 4x8 Christmas cards is a great starting point, you are going to have to do a few more things in order to arrive at a design that is both functional and that is distinctively related to you and your family. With our cards, you have the ability to adjust multiple elements of your chosen style, including the graphics, the type of paper and a vertical or horizontal presentation. To give it that final personal touch, add one or more Christmas photos so that everyone can see your family’s growth over the last year.
Shutterfly’s stationery services don’t stop at Christmas, however. Chances are that if you have an upcoming holiday or celebration, we have what you need in order to get the word out in style. For instance, if someone close to you makes the decision to get married, throwing the betrothed couple an engagement party can be a lot of fun. Engagement party invitations are a great way to set the tone. If your family is going to be moving into a new home in the near future, make sure that people have your new address with moving announcements.
