What customers have to say about our Thank You Cards

Best way ever to send a thank you
"I made thank you cards using a few photos of my toddler son, to send as thank you notes when various relatives and family friends give him a toy or gift. The cards are such a hit. So much more meaningful to have this personalized card than a store bought thank you card, and for about the same price or less than the store bought card. The quality of the cards and pictures are great. As my son grows up, I'm sure I will continue to design and buy personalized thank you cards like these. Such a special and meaningful way to thank someone for their generosity."

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."

Birthday Thank You Cards
Children look forward to birthdays like they look forward to Christmas – with intense excitement and anticipation. As a parent, there are only so many birthday parties you will have the privilege of planning for your child before he or she grows up. Make the most of those tender young years by throwing an unforgettable birthday party that will be enjoyed equally by your child and his or her party guests. To make sure you avoid birthday party mishaps, here are a few etiquette rules you should keep in mind.
Selective Invitation Rules
If you’re planning to hand out birthday party invitations to your child’s classmates, only do so if you plan to invite everyone in the class. If you only want to invite a select few kids, avoid causing hurt feelings by mailing the birthday invitations directly to their homes.
Plan Enough Food for Everyone
There is no rule that says you must provide food at your child’s birthday party, but if you do, make sure you plan enough for every party guest. This includes any parents who plan on attending your child’s birthday party along with their young children.
When to Open Presents
Whether or not you choose to have your child open gifts in front of guests depends entirely on your preferences. If the party is being attended by very young children who might want to keep the presents once they see them, it is perfectly acceptable to open them after the party guests have left. Just make sure guests feel appreciated by promptly sending them birthday thank you cards. Make each card personal by mentioning something about the specific gift given and how much your child enjoys it.
Prepare Your Child
Prepare your child in advance to be a good host by instructing him or her to greet each guest as they come to the door, make sure everyone feels included and share toys. If your child is a good host, his or her birthday gifts are much more likely to enjoy the experience.
