"I am always looking for the 5 x 7 folded cards because I like to use at least two good sized pictures, one on the front and one on the inside. This one also has yet another place on the back for a smaller picture. I like to create my own messages. The quality of the card stock is excellent."
"I used it as a memorial"
"was the perfect card for fitting our pictures from our cross country road trip!"
"As always Shutterfly made my photographs look great on another one of their card designs. Always fun to make unique cards and it is easy."
"I got this card in red as I thought that was more Christmas-y. I also like that the entire right side is taken up by the image and it in portrait mode as most of my images are taken portrait vs landscape. It also matched thematically with the card I purchased last year (rustic Christmas). I'm hoping to find a similarly designed card for next year."
You've probably sent hundreds of traditional cards in your life. You know the kind -- bifold, with a seasonal greeting inside, and everyone you know gets hundreds of them, too. Or maybe you've always sent updated photo cards, so it's time to maintain your place in the halls of holiday card cool with 5x5 holiday cards. These square cards let you select photos that encapsulate your family's joy while wishing the same to others. The 5x5 size is totally unexpected, so it should inspire a big smile. Inspired by how much we all love photo-sharing social media sites that let us look at grids or streams of photos in square sizes, these holiday cards are an awesome way to make your holiday modern and fun.
5x5 Cards Still Let You Stay Traditional
Even if you're ready to experiment with this hot card style, you still might want to stick to traditional messages or include a collage-style layout of photos like you have in other years. You definitely can with selections that offer you the ultimate in personalization. Pick one photo to show off in a bigger size and then create a border of smaller, square photos around it. Some styles let you pick up to six photos, so there's no shortage of good times to share on your holiday cards this year! But if you're back to feeling like you want to play around with the coolest cards out there, you can pick a bracket, ticket, or scalloped silhouettes. Even rounded corners are interesting. No matter what you choose, these aren't your old-school cards.
Holiday Cards Can Use Any Photos These Days
Ever get one of those Christmas cards with everyone in Santa outfits or pretending to take part in a Nativity play? Some Hannukah cards see families pull out the dreidels for playful photos. Those can be a hilarious and super-fun way to make memories with your family, but, these days, holiday cards can feature any photo style you like. If you're going with modern 5x5 holiday cards, you could also consider using an atmospheric black-and-white photo or a cinematic shot with lots of foregrounds to make your cards unique and memorable.
