"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."

"The finished cards are excellent. My only complaint is that navigating on the web site for creating and adding photos is slow."

"I love to make cards to send to friends with photos that I take on trips. I always get comments and think it is just a little special to share some of my adventures.
Making the cards is just so easy."

Great color reproduction... as always!
"I am a commercial photographer and have earned my living shooting corporate assignments for 35+ years. I have been shooting with digital cameras since the first one. I mention this only to point out that I am very aware of what's good and what's not good when it comes to color reproduction.
The color reproduction of these Shutterfly 5x7 Folded Cards is first-rate. The gloss surface yields rich blacks and vibrant highlights. I get endless compliments on how good the color is when I send these cards.
Since I work on a color-managed computer, the Shutterfly cards match exactly what I see on my screen before I upload the files.
I highly recommend these cards!"
