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."
Black Christmas Cards
As you go through each year picking out your family’s Christmas card design, you may start to get sick of the same style year after year. If you’ve exhausted the reds and greens, try something a little more modern and sophisticated with black Christmas cards. Although black is not traditionally associated with the holiday spirit, there are plenty of greeting card options in black that make a statement to your favorite people. Not only do they look great, but designs in black can also stand out from the other mass of Christmas cards everyone seems to get during this time of year. Shutterfly has a large list of attractive and seasonal Christmas cards that bring a muted sense of style and design to your family’s greeting. That way, you can achieve a bright and modern look at this special time of year.
Chic and Stunning Season’s Greetings
If you’re thinking of choosing a black holiday card greeting, you may want to customize your card even further and forego the traditional Christmas wording. You can select an editable text card and come up with your own clever winter salutation. Then, you can ensure that everyone on your card recipient list gets a unique message from your family instead of the same tried and true greetings from the past. Another great look that mixes well with black is a monogrammed Christmas card. You can personalize this type of card with your last initial and give your friends a chic and cozy sentiment through the mail.
Versatile Design Options
The best thing about the color black is how versatile it is. A card backdrop in black can be part of any type of style or look you have in mind for your Christmas greeting. Whether it’s a photo of your dogs in front of the fireplace or your little ones playing in the snow, a black Christmas card is sure to offer everyone dramatic and pleasing appeal.
