"I love all shutterfly cards.....I have done them for every possible occasion.....definitely recommend them...."
"I was impressed by the quality (stock) of the card. I used this as the thank you for my twin daughters' communion thank you. I have received many compliments on the card. I would definitely use again."
"I've made cards through Shutterfly for years. This is the first time I've made Christmas cards on photo paper. I love them! The photos are so sharp, the designs are so colorful. And they're lightweight, so I know one stamp will be enough. I will be making a lot more!"
"The combination of my specific photo, the card's design and its theme makes for a special Christmas Card. I did however, buy this along with a 10 card promotion; otherwise, I could not have afforded it. Everything has become so much more expensive."
"I love ordering holiday cards from Shutterfly. It is so easy to use their templates and the cards look very professional. And most important they are a great value. I especially like the folded cards."
The trend in graphic design for the past five years has been toward textures and natural patterns. Backgrounds such as wood grain, craft paper, chalkboards and even sand are wildly popular for showcasing cherished photos of family and friends. At Shutterfly, we can help you get in on this trend with more than 100 different holiday card templates that feature a textural backdrop. Recipients get the feeling they are holding a piece of handcrafted paper in their hands, and our heavy cardstock will help further the sentiment.
Our craft holiday cards are available with several different design options, so you are sure to find one that matches the photos you choose for the template.
