"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."
"Wonderful thick, quality cards! Beautiful design! Can't wait to share!"
"Many choices are available which I liked and user friendly for the most part. The quality of photos excellent and we received compliments on the cards. Also, I appreciated the prompt and professional service from the time I placed my order to receiving them in the mail. Thank you!"
"We have always gone to a local person for our cards but unfortunately he went out of business this year. We decided to give Shutterfly a try as we had received a free 8x8 photo book coupon due to a Best Buy purchase. We not only got this amazing, free book (very easy to put together), we did our Christmas cards with Shutterfly as well and they are BEAUTIFUL! Thanks Shutterfly, you now have a new loyal customer...and we have already done 3 more photo books for gifts!"
When it's time to select your cards for the season, 5x7 holiday cards can make a significant impact in the mailbox and when your loved ones open them. Modeled after one of the traditional sizes of print photos, but when you customize them to include a caring holiday message and your images, they become something so much more. When you want to send big greetings to your family near and far, your friends from throughout the ages, plus colleagues who hear you talk about your kids all year long, 5x7 holiday cards are the perfect solution.
Some families know there was that one moment that just captured the spirit of the year. Others like to take their time coordinating outfits and picking a picturesque backdrop to frame everyone just for the occasion of sending cards. Your family can choose anything you like. There are no rules when you personalize your holiday cards. Check out designs that let you feature one photo or comb through your photo archives to select four or more that show off you, your spouse, and your kids at different points in the year. Some of the highlights of the year might include a graduation, wedding or move to a new house.
You can design one-holiday card for everyone on your list when you have lots of individual choices. Pick from square corners for a traditional photo look or choose rounded corners to enjoy sending contemporary cards. Winter motifs make things fun, too. Snowflakes, stars, holly, hearts, and other borders and details make your cards one-of-a-kind -- and that's not counting the pictures you pick!
One of the coolest ways to add an unexpected touch to your holiday cards is by selecting a custom trim or shape. A bracket silhouette features pointed edges that look like a crest, while a ticket silhouette features a modified octagonal shape. When you add these fantastic embellishments to your holiday cards, you can rest assured no one else is sending a card to yours!
