"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."

Shutterfly team, you've outdone yourselves!
"Having enjoyed several Shutterfly photo books received as gifts from my son, I couldn't resist trying to create them myself. The ease of creation and the wonderful results got me hooked on Shutterfly. I've created six books so far, and I have the intention of scanning in all our photos and creating photo books to showcase them all.
Just when I thought this photo creativity couldn't get any better, I decided to try my hand at greeting cards. My wife and I recently retired to the west coast and wanted some all-purpose cards to use for note cards and thank you cards. The quality of the cards I received has surpassed my expectation by a mile. They are incredible. I went with matte finish which I prefer. The cards are coated in what seems to be a plastic protective layer which will likely make these cards keepers. They're nice enough to frame.
Even with the shipping cost, the cards are cost effective to give as one-off personalized birthday cards. I'll never use a store bought card again."

"I always have searched for the perfect card with the perfect sentiment for friends and family over the years. With Shutterfly cards I am able to create my own cards with personal photos and the perfect personal wording. I cannot express how meaningful each and every card has been to the recipients and how they treasure them. I even started ordering a double of my created cards for myself because I treasure them that much. Absolutely top-notch quality variety and the low cost is incredible. I love Shutterfly!!!"

Classic Navy 5x7 Folded Card
"It took a little time, but all the layouts were there that I needed. In the end I had a mini-scrapbook of my son's football years (from player to coach).
The layout choices let me include a total of 13 pictures in the card, all captioned, and still have half of the inside bottom to write birthday sentiments.
He was really blown away to see so many people and events from his football years -- the card may have been the most appreciated gift I gave him this year!"
