"Shortly after my husband passed away, I decided to use my Shutterfly account to make a "Remembrance"card to send to friends and family, when I finished it I thought it looked fine however when I got them in the area where I wrote the message it was Dark Brown and the lettering was Black, you couldn't read it no matter how bright the light was, I was so disappointed. HOWEVER, when I called and had the pleasure of speaking with Michelle and told her the problem, she pulled up the order and was in total agreement and was so understanding and sympathetic, she told me not to worry, that they would remake the order at no charge and that when I finished making the new cards to have them "expedite" shipping, all at no additional cost to me, I received them in 2 days and they were perfect!!! I can't thank Michelle and Shutterfly for your excellent products and service. Thank you all so much!"
"I like the card stock and color of this card. This card was easy to add text. I added pictures of flowers from my yard that went along with the color of the card. This created a nice feminine sympathy card to use whenever this sad event occurs."

Grieving can be tough for any person. Often, it is very hard to know the right words to say when someone has suffered a loss.

If you're trying to find the right words to express your thoughts, you might be interested in our sympathy quotes and sayings as a good place to start.
We are never prepared to lose the ones we love. When our friends or family have to deal with the unthinkable, it can be hard to know what to do. At the very least, a custom sympathy card can let them know that they are in your thoughts. You can create a card to help celebrate the life and joy of a person and to hopefully help your friend or family member work toward closure. If you are close, offer to lend an ear, run errands or cook meals. Babysitting or even just doing the laundry for someone directly affected by loss can be very helpful in some situations. Often, with grief, we don’t know who or how to ask for help. A card can remind someone that they are not alone.
Shutterfly has plenty of options for designing custom cards. If it is appropriate, you can upload your favorite photograph to help celebrate the memories and life of the loved one who passed. If you prefer to select one of the designs, create your card that way. You can follow the suggested design guidelines or utilize your preferred fonts, colors and personalized condolence message to complete the card. Not sure exactly what you want to say? We have some tips for what to write in a sympathy card that can guide you through the thought process.
