What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

A Nice, Unconventional Holiday Card
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.)
Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere.
There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card.
Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card.
Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."

"I thought I had ordered my Christmas cards in plenty of time to get them and send them out before the Holiday Season. I was told they would arrive by Dec. 17th. When they still had not arrived on Dec. 20th and I saw they were still in production, I emailed the customer service dept. of Shutterfly. They were very helpful. Sped up my card production and had them shipped priority. Then came the glitch with Fed Ex. The cards were in MN the next day but didn't arrive at our house for four days. It was disappointing that I wasn't able to send my Holiday greeting cards before Christmas, but I was so pleased with the quality and Shutterfly's persistence to help me out and make me happy that it didn't matter. So our family and friends received our Christmas cards on the 5th day of Christmas. I'm sure they were able to spend more time looking at the beautiful quality of the card and enjoy it more than right before Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Shutterfly. Next year I will get them to you earlier."

Quick and easy!
"Once I was able to sit down during the holidays and actually put my time into creating our holiday cards, it was quick and easy. I had plenty of room to add all the pictures I wanted plus say what I wanted to say. This Christmas card was just perfect for a family of four kids and parents. I was glad I purchased the group-on that gave me 30 cards for $20.00 plus shipping. That was an early Christmas gift for me!"

Joyful Christmas Card
"Turned out great. Was easy to do. I really enjoyed doing it."

"Everything is just fine except the size/location of your logo. For a card where I'd like to write a few personal notes, your logo takes up valuable center space and is larger than the message written above it. Would like to see the logo smaller and in a bottom corner."
Beige Christmas Cards
The Christmas tree is a staple in many homes during the joyous Christmas season. If you are looking for a unique way to spruce up your tree, there are a few fun and easy decorating ideas that you can employ. Check out these unique Christmas tree ornaments that are simple to make.
Simply remove the silver lid from the top of the ornament and fill it with colorful filling. You may choose colorful beads, sand, glitter or other things. You could also use special paint to create a tie-dye effect if desired. The choice is up to you.
For those with a knack for crocheting, this could be a very fun project. There are many different options to consider, including:
• Snowflakes • Snowmen • Mittens • Christmas trees • 3D ornaments
With the various yarn colors and ideas, you could have a tree full of unique, customized ornaments.
There are some that already come as ornaments, such as a few of these beige Christmas cards, while others you can easily make into hangers by creating a hole and adding string. This can be a great way to bring in a family vibe or remember loved ones who cannot be in attendance during your festivities.
Bottle Cap Snowmen
These snowman ornaments are cute and easy to create. To begin you will need bottle caps, ribbon and glue. Attach the bottle caps in a row on the ribbon. Once you have the base of your snowman, you can use paint to add the face. If you like you can add other accessories as well, such as yarn around the “neck” of the snowman to serve as a scarf, or a felt hat on the snowman’s “head.”
These unique ideas can be a fun project for the whole family. Try one or try them all to create memorable keepsakes that you can enjoy for years to come. You can also create custom ornaments with Shutterfly in metal, pewter, glass, and more!
