"My grandson Jacob, who turns 13 this week, LOVES the San Diego Chargers. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find Chargers birthday cards in stores? Actually, I've never found one. This is the third year I've made him a Chargers card on Shutterfly, and he has been thrilled, especially since I've inadvertently chosen Google Image photos that include his favorite players. This year's card is still in the mail on its way to him, but he took last year's card to bed with him because he loved it so much. And the beauty is that the Shutterfly cards are mostly less expensive than store-bought cards. I make them for everyone in my family, based on what they love or what they happen to be interested at the time of their birthday or graduation or other special event. I have also made wedding cards for people, using pictures of their wedding venue taken before the event. I've made anniversary cards, new baby cards, Mother's Day cards, Father's Day cards, Thanksgiving cards, Christmas cards, Easter cards, valentines, and thank-you cards. It takes more work to make these cards than it does to buy a card off the shelf, but the rewards to everyone are priceless. The card quality is great and consistent, and I am grateful everyday that I can do something this simple that brings so much joy to my family members and friends, but especially to my eight grandchildren."

I love Shutterfly photo birthday cards !
"I have 10 grandchildren all under 15... I have digital photos of them from day one and every year make 10 birthday cards. I like the folded birthday cards that give me a choice of inserting my photos, usually 4 to 6 photos. I take current and previous special photos of each individual child and place it on the birthday card that I am making. I can then choose special words for each child in wishing them a happy birthday. Each child has saved their cards through the years and I will see the cards on their shelf in their room from time to time. I love this birthday project and it gives me a chance to relook at my photos which are on my computer....and my Shutterfly birthday card lets them know how special that they are!"

5x7 cards gorgeous!
"I just received my 10 - 5x7" cards. This is the 3rd time I have ordered these and they are always so lovely. A couple of the cards had a perfectly straight scratch about 2" from the left (on top open card) the height of the card but since this batch was 10 for free I won't complain.
On the whole Shutterfly is my favorite photo creation company. I've made lots of address labels, 4 x 6 pix, books, poster sized photos and cards and have always been pleased. Your program is easily the most user friendly of any I have used (including My Publisher and PhotoBook America--PBA has recently taken a dive in both program being usable AND customer service absolutely not responding). Yours also has THE most options for fonts, font color, backgrounds and embellishments.
You guys also have the quickest turnaround time. I was literally floored when my most recent 11 x 20" arrived on my doorstep 2 days after ordering it! I recently was offered a free photobook by My Publisher and it took 12 (9 business) days to arrive. My photobooks with Shutterfly are always more timely than that.
I have never been displeased with any product from Shutterfly and have been using your services since early 2009. Thanks, guys, for great products and service!"

Watercolor Flower Card
"I made the Classic Blue Folded 5x7 card using a piece of artwork from our son. It is glossy and made of good quality card stock. I even like the simple Shutterfly logo on the back. Generally I feel that "less is more" and the logo is not overdone. It was easy to upload the image and the card came out great!
The entire order arrived on time, as indicated in the confirmation."
