"I find the process of designing the photo cards fairly clunky--upload the photos, choose layout options, etc. You have to take each card through the entire process before you can start on another. I do very much like the preview tab when designing my cards. The image is card-sized so you get an accurate idea of how your project will look. Once a project is done, the process to re-order is some better. You can also edit a project and save the new version, too.
The quality of the cards is very good. The images print just over the edge to the back of the card as they are supposed to. Photos that are really sharp turn out nicely when printed edge to edge on cards. The availability of cards with colored or patterned borders is quite helpful, too, to give a different flavor to an image or help when the photo is not quite as clear at 5 x 7 as it is at 4 x 6."

5x7 Folded Card - My Photo
"I've been making my own cards for over 10 years. I know I can count on Shutterfly to make the card just as I designed it, and what I see on the site is how it will look when I receive it. This is one of the cards on which I write the history of the photo subject. I chose matte finish, because I find it does not show fingerprints. Instead of putting an apt quote on the inside bottom as I do with flowers, fruit, nature, etc., I put the basic story of the photo, which is of the Washington, DC Peace Monument. On the back of the 5x7 folded card, there was enough room to put at least a dozen lines under a smaller photo of the Monument. I am so very pleased to show off my photos with the quotations I've chosen. I've recently begun putting a color on the back of the card, one that matches a color on my photo. And, remember, if there is that rare problem with a Shutterfly order, you are guaranteed they will fix it. Over 10 years I've had very few reasons to take them up on this. But they "happily and hurriedly" fixed it. I will continue on with my hobby through this wonderful company, and I will continue to look for those wonderful bright orange packages to arrive at my door!"

Free 5X7 Card Samples were Great Motivators
"Thank you for the free offers that motivate me to try new products. I was very impressed by the variety of cards available and quite satisfied with the product I received.
My suggestions for improvement:
There needs to be an option to create a lightened background surrounding text which overlaps a photo. That will make the words pop out more. (I really wanted a white, script font, but couldn't get it bold enough to stand out over my multicolored and bright background.)
And here's an F.Y.I., do you know that your shipping charges are twice as much as Walgreens? (10 cards from you were $5.99, 20 cards from them was only $2.99... both orders filled this summer.)"

Quick Easter Treat
"Love the fun and simple sentiment on this card. The cardstock it prints on is a nice weight and the color is good on both the photos and the design. As a square card, you should know before you order that it requires additional postage. I like the ability to customize both sides and it gives a good assortment of photo size options on one card. Would most definitely order it again!"
