"Sturdy and beautiful! Love the layouts and cropping ability!"
"What impressed me most about this experience was the speed. Our cards were in our mailbox 28 hours after I hit "submit." I also appreciated the number of card formats available and the accuracy of the printing."
"The cards were good quality, shipping was fast and the price was a great. Trying to navigate the website to create our cards was a royal pain! We tried to download our photos only to have them disappear into the abyss. Then we had trouble trying to save our designed card only to have it disappear again. You folks need to try using your website and make selecting, designing and SAVING easier. Instructions are absent and navigating around your website is confusing and tedious. Also, when adding text to a selected card, deciding on a font and a size are also a pain, having to run through hoops to fit the text into the box, pretty much trial and error until you find the right fit. We had to change font sizes about 5 times until we were able to fit the text into the box on our selected card. The whole design process needs to be simplified."
"I loved the card and the convenience and look of the pre-addressed envelopes. It arrived even faster than promised. Thanks Shutterfly!"
"Card came and I was impressed by the quality of the card stock. Very nice."
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.

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.
