"Prints arrived beautiful and on time."
"I chose this card based on the colors we all were wearing and I had so many comments and compliments! Can't wait to pick another Shutterfly card next Christmas/New Years."
"We enjoy sending out New Year's cards rather than Christmas cards, as we have friends of many faiths we like to remember during the holidays. This card gives you space for lots of photos and short narratives - just enough words to keep friends and family informed without one of those long, boring two-page letters. We've received many compliments on the cards and great feedback."
"Sturdy and beautiful! Love the layouts and cropping ability!"
"Loved how it turned out"
When you've had an amazing 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 a simple way to highlight your family's joy while wishing the same to everyone else. The size is great 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.
Picking Photos for Your Holiday Cards
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 or a favorite memory, but it's definitely 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 special situation to treasure -- and maybe show off, just a little -- you still have room to create a collage or photo story. Some holiday cards have easy template options where you select the photos you want and the rest is done for you. Some have a couple options 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.
What's Your Holiday Card Message This Year?
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 simply shares the values, like peace, joy, and love, that matter to everyone, no matter which winter holidays are traditions.
Don't Forget to Keep Photo Cards for Yourself, Too.
Get in the habit of sending 4x8 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 Christmas cards that other friends and their families send you, too, for a box of memories and a surprising time capsule you'll love as much as any photo books. You might even frame your favorites.
