What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

Love these snowflake Christmas cards!
"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!"

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."

Awesome Christmas cards!
"I absolutely loved these pop out Christmas cards what a great way to send someone a picture & card in one. The quality is perfect & I just love the way they came out. Will definitely order more next year!"

"I liked the colors and the layout of the card, we used the larger shot of the whole family, and the smaller picture of just the kids. I was disappointed that the names are not easy to see, the font is small and the black color does not show up well on the green background. Before ordering see if you can get that changed somehow. I did not notice it before they came in the mail and would have changed it if I had."

Love the Photo Cards
"Easy to turn your photo into a beautiful Photo Christmas card to share with special friends and family. The order came quickly. Appreciate the hints and helps that lead me through putting everything on the card I wanted (even the back). I chose two pictures for the front and one for the back and put my own verse on the card. Loved them."
Craft Christmas Cards
If you’re like many people, you might be weary of the commercialization and exploitation of Christmas. A time that was originally intended to celebrate family and giving has instead become a source of stress in some cases. How do you combat this phenomenon and make sure Christmas stays sacred?
There are several steps you can take to keep Christmas special and make it a down to earth affair. Whether you’re prioritizing time with family above shopping or choosing contemporary Christmas cards to personalize, there are plenty of ways to make this holiday season a meaningful time for you and all of your loved ones.
Show Your Loved Ones You Care With Handmade Gifts
One of the greatest threats to a simple Christmas is the pressure to give loved ones expensive store-bought presents. This emphasis on consumerism has inspired many people to instead customize and make their own presents for family and friends. When you create a gift that is inspired by the heart, you keep the spirit of Christmas present. Topping it off with silver foil Christmas cards makes the whole package complete. Showing those around you that you care doesn’t have to be difficult or cost-prohibitive.
Make Time for Friends and Family
Perhaps the greatest irony of Christmas is how little time we get to spend with friends and family when so much of the season places an emphasis on such activities. It can be stressful to try and arrange dinners and meet-ups when everybody is so busy, but keeping your Christmas down to earth is all about priorities.
Instead of getting caught up in the rush of the season, put family first and make your intentions known by sending out rustic Christmas cards to spread the love. Take it a step further by styling your envelopes with these custom address labels. With these simple steps, you can alleviate the trappings of stress and enjoy Christmas for what it is truly meant to be.
