"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."
"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium. I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."
"Very pleased with the cards. Picture turned out great."
"Mission Accomplished! My cousin loved her card so much, she smiled, then cried from sheer delight! thank you shutterfly"
"I love these! They're great quality, not flimsy at all. The quality of the picture is great also. My family loved them. Thanks"
When you've had a fantastic year, you need to share it with everyone come holiday time. Selecting 4x8 holiday cards to send to your friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and anyone else on your list is such an easy way to highlight your family's joy while wishing the same to everyone else. The size is ideal for hanging on refrigerators, leaning up against the wall on mantles, or decorating shelves. Just a little bit bigger than your average photo prints, these holiday cards are easy to drop in the mail, easy to display, and easy to love.
The nice thing about 4x8 holidays cards is that you have plenty of space to show off one beautiful focal photograph. Maybe it's a portrait, perhaps it's a favorite memory, but it's a keeper that you can pull out for years to come. Or if you've had such an incredible year that you know there's more than one unique situation to treasure -- and maybe show off, just a little -- you still have room to create a collage or photo story. Holiday cards have easy template options where you select the photos you want and just add your text. Some have a couple of choices for your favorite design, so you can play around and see how it looks with anywhere from two to four photos. Borders can make your pics pop, too.
There are so many fabulous sentiments to share around the holidays. Some families stick with the basics. After all, does "Happy Holidays" or "Merry Christmas" ever really go out of style? You can customize your 4x8 holiday cards with your family's names underneath a unique greeting, too, that incorporates Christmas, the New Year, or just shares values, like peace, joy, and love, that matter to everyone, no matter which winter holidays are traditions.
Get in the habit of sending 4x8 and Disney holiday cards every year. Eventually, you'll realize you have a stack of memories that shows your family's joy and celebration over the years. You can keep these keepsakes with cards that other friends and their relatives send you. Create a box of memories and a surprising time capsule you'll love as much as a Christmas photo books. You might even frame your favorites.
