"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 me some Shutterfly
"I've used shutterfly to personalize several holiday's to my liking! From Father's day with an adorable mug for my husband while he was deployed with pictures of him and his newborn son, to cards for mother's day, father's day, Easter and more, to an awesome photo book in place of a card for Father's day this year! I also love getting the special promotions in emails and in delivery packages! I make sure to look for good deals around special holidays to make cards for family members. It's custom to send a card for birthdays, mother's and father's day, ect. but why send a generic card from the store when you can send a card full of pictures you know that special person will love! And if you keep you're eye open for the coupons and deals you'll be paying the same price, if not less, than the generic cards at the grocery store but getting a card personalized with photos and love!"

"I had some of my paintings made into cards. The prints are wonderfully sharp even though they are just from digital photos of my art."

Excellent Quality, but...
"The quality of the cards was fantastic, but I wish the inside was more customizable. For example, I could not have variable fonts or font sizes, which would have been really nice. But other than that, everything else was perfect!"

"I LOVE my cards and can not wait to mail them out. The thank you cards i made i'm sure will really express my gratitude and let the people know how thankful i am."
