"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"
"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 wanted to take advantage of Shutterfly's Christmas in summer promotion but mostly I wanted to tell our friends where we had been this summer. Of course and as usual, I found the perfect card -- blurred edges on the front and blank on the inside. They were perfect & I had so much fun filling them out! Love, love, love Shutterfly -- my cards always exceed my expectations."
"I will use Shutterfly next year for Xmas Cards. Their Quality, and service was Excellent. Next year I will explore their Services more deeply, now that they have earned my trust!!"
"I really like the ability to personalize the ornament in this card. Great extra touch."
If you haven’t yet tried out personalized Christmas cards, you might want to make this your year. People love getting holiday cards from friends and family, and personalized cards take the gesture even further. These cards usually act as mementos long after the holidays are over, with the attached photos acting as milestones for growing families. Family members, friends and even business associates often display Christmas cards in prominent locations at home or at the office as part of their holiday decorating.
Many people associate red and green with Christmas, but brown Christmas cards can be very festive. They are a perfect choice for channeling rustic charm, cozy cabins and beautiful wood backgrounds. They also go with just about any décor, and they work well with any wardrobe choice. Brown cards have an understated elegance and charm that truly bring the outdoors in. When these cards are proudly displayed on fireplace mantels and kitchen cabinets, they add to the overall holiday spirit. When you purchase brown Christmas cards from Shutterfly, you can choose from a variety of options, including single or multiple photos. Shutterfly also has different messages to choose from, like the traditional “Merry Christmas” and the more neutral “Happy Holidays.” They even have holiday cards for dogs, as well as cards to celebrate the New Year.
Make your Christmas card list complete with brown return address labels. Choose one with a Christmas theme, or choose more neutral labels for year-round use. You can even get personalized brown postage stamps to fully round out your cards. This way, your envelopes will stand out from everyone else’s who used standard stamps from the post office.
Personalized Christmas cards of any color are great options for your yearly mailers. Shutterfly has you covered with a wide variety of color themes, so you can get the perfect brown Holiday card to send your holiday greetings.
