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."

Editable Sentiment Christmas Cards
Are you looking for creative Christmas card photo ideas this year? Giving custom Christmas cards is so much more fun when you know the recipients will appreciate the time and effort you took to be creative. While producing a fun Christmas card photo may seem easy in theory, you may find that it is harder than you anticipated to figure out a creative way to pose. That is why we put together this fun list of Christmas card photo ideas that will make your card stand apart from the rest.
This Christmas card photo can be a bit tricky to recreate, and should be limited to families with kids older than four or five. Beginning with the biggest and strongest person in the family, stand in a seated position with your back against a wall in a hallway. Have the next strongest person stand on your thighs in a seated position with their back against the opposite wall. Continue this pattern until all family members are standing on each other’s legs and creating a human “tree”. The smallest person at the top of the tree should hold up a star. Make the photo as festive as possible with Santa hats, Christmas lights and Christmas ornaments.
Christmas Baby Gift
Planning to announce the expected arrival of a new little one in your Christmas cards this year? Pose the family as usual, but wrap a bow around the waist of the new mother-to-be and write the words “best gift ever” or similar words on the shirt with bold marker. If you’ve already had a new baby, have your Christmas card double as a birth announcement.
Waiting for Santa
If you have a genuine chimney in your home, use it to stage the following adorable Christmas card photo idea. Arrange your little ones around the open fireplace entrance in their cute Christmas pajamas. Have them look expectantly up the chimney while munching on cookies labeled “For Santa.” These Christmas photo ideas are easy to recreate and will make your custom Christmas cards a treat to create and give away.
