"Lovely! We were so pleased with how the announcement turned out."
"I didn't realize this card was made out of very nice card stock. For whatever reason I kept thinking it was out if photo paper, but that would not make since, being 2-sided. While it was a little bit more per card than I normally spend, it was definitely worth the money for what you get!"
"Love these cards! I've used Shutterfly for both my baby's announcements and thank you cards and they always turn out gorgeous! Very happy with the shipping times and customer service. Just wish they had a Canadian division of Shutterfly."
"Love the announcement. The paper was great as was the quality!"
