"It was quick and easy to create a quality Christmas Card. It came out just as I hoped. The print was as good as the photo on my phone."
"The format was flexible and allowed me to put 8 photos on the card in a clear and organized way. Tech support was very helpful with modifying the back of the card, which I could not figure out at first."
"Shutterfly offered 10 free cards so I took them up on their offer. This is the first year I sent out cards."
"This is my 2nd year of exclusively personal cards from Shutterfly. They are always a huge hit and I don't have to worry about duplicating someone else's card!"
"Loved it for gifts for our children"
Whether you prefer a card with a simple menorah and text or a more elaborate family photo version, Shutterfly has the perfect solution for your celebration this year. With an array of themes and design options, the vintage Hanukkah card can represent both your family and the holiday well.
Reflecting the Family
The standard greeting “Happy Hanukkah” stands out on many prints, but if you have time, you can weave your own ideas into the smaller text. Composing the content adds your family’s personality. Recipients of the personalized card can immediately recognize you in the greeting since wording and tone easily reflect a writer’s heart. In this way, a simple Holiday card can strengthen the bond between friends during one of the most meaningful seasons of the year.
The design process can also create memories for your family. Whether you choose one family photo for your card or incorporate individual and group shots, the time you spend together during the photo shoot can be a memory of its own. A good photographer will capture that memory – the laughter, the smiles – and you can choose how much of it to share with the world and how much to keep “just between family.”
Symbolizing the Season
Many of the vintage Hanukkah cards illustrate the season well by incorporating its most significant symbols into the designs. The menorah appears often in a variety of colors and styles, while the Star of David shimmers brightly on the “Bokeh Star Hanukkah Card.” Since both play crucial roles in the history and celebration of Hanukkah, if your family cherishes the holiday, you may find these vintage cards represent the season more fully.
If you’d like to be more creative rather than following a pre-designed template, Shutterfly offers an “Upload Your Own Design” option, which gives you the full creative freedom to showcase the significance of the holiday to your family. In addition, we offer Holiday card ideas to help you exercise that creative freedom.
