"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."
"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium. I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."
"These cards were beautiful and I received them very quickly. Thank you."
"I can't imagine trying to get through the holidays without Shutterfly! Christmas Cards to the masses, Thank you Cards for all those that do and give so much, Calendars to help family keep track of important dates while giving them the joy of seeing the family each month of the year! Thanks Shutterfly for making it so easy and affordable!"
"The design for this card is uniquely beautiful, crisp, clean, and classy. The colors are as shown, not as rich or dark as I prefer, but the brighter red was still pleasing and coordinates well with the muted green."
The holiday season brings with it a bevy of traditions that help add a personal touch to the festivities. We here at Shutterfly want to help make this year and every year thereafter memorable for you, your family and your friends. You may be surprised just how far customized gifts and unique holiday cards can go towards creating cherished memories for you and your loved ones to enjoy again and again.
One of the more enriching and heartwarming elements of the holidays is reaching out and hearing back from friends and family. Thus the tradition of the annual holiday card. Yet this year, instead of settling from some standard, store-bought product, why not send a customized message to those you love through unique holiday cards? Such a gesture shows those receiving your cards how much you truly care and allows them to see how your family has grown throughout the year.
