"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."
"Love the card and the picture I choose was exactly the same the way it was made on the card I ordered. Highly recommended."
"These cards came out great. Shutterfly is the best."
"My Grandfather has been sick for a while and because of my currant health conditions I am not able to visit him in the hospital, so I decided to make him a 5x7 folded card through Shutterfly! I used a picture of my daughter ( his great grandaughter ), my mother ( his daughter ) and myself ( his grandaughter ) on the front and a personalized message inside! My mother dropped it off to him and said it brought tears to his eyes! and that its now hanging right beside his bed and that he shows every nurse and doctor who comes in to check on him! And that's exactly what Shutterfly does... It brings love and joy to everyone!!! I am so happy and Shutterfly I love you so much!!!"

Even if you're ready to experiment with this hot card style, you still might want to stick to regular 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 6 photos, so there's no shortage of fun to share with 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.
Ever get one of those premium 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 hilarious and a 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 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.
