What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

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."

"I thought I had ordered my Christmas cards in plenty of time to get them and send them out before the Holiday Season. I was told they would arrive by Dec. 17th. When they still had not arrived on Dec. 20th and I saw they were still in production, I emailed the customer service dept. of Shutterfly. They were very helpful. Sped up my card production and had them shipped priority. Then came the glitch with Fed Ex. The cards were in MN the next day but didn't arrive at our house for four days. It was disappointing that I wasn't able to send my Holiday greeting cards before Christmas, but I was so pleased with the quality and Shutterfly's persistence to help me out and make me happy that it didn't matter. So our family and friends received our Christmas cards on the 5th day of Christmas. I'm sure they were able to spend more time looking at the beautiful quality of the card and enjoy it more than right before Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Shutterfly. Next year I will get them to you earlier."

Quick and easy!
"Once I was able to sit down during the holidays and actually put my time into creating our holiday cards, it was quick and easy. I had plenty of room to add all the pictures I wanted plus say what I wanted to say. This Christmas card was just perfect for a family of four kids and parents. I was glad I purchased the group-on that gave me 30 cards for $20.00 plus shipping. That was an early Christmas gift for me!"

Joyful Christmas Card
"Turned out great. Was easy to do. I really enjoyed doing it."

"Everything is just fine except the size/location of your logo. For a card where I'd like to write a few personal notes, your logo takes up valuable center space and is larger than the message written above it. Would like to see the logo smaller and in a bottom corner."
Flat Christmas Cards
Christmas is truly the most magical time of the year. Get into the holiday spirit by sending friends, family member, co-workers or anyone else customized flat Christmas cards. Creating fun cards featuring pictures of your entire family is a great way to show others what you have been up to this year, and Shutterfly lets you do this with ease.
Sending Christmas Greetings
Sending Christmas cards is a time-honored tradition. It is a great way to let close friends or acquaintances see how big your children have gotten. You can even write short messages on the back of the cards to give loved ones further details about what you have been up to, either work-related or otherwise. This is a unique, thoughtful way to send your season’s greetings.
Incorporating Christmas Cards into Your Holiday Decor
If you get custom Christmas cards, make sure you keep a few handy for your own use. Flat Christmas cards make excellent tree toppers. You can easily set one of the cards on a branch so that everyone can take a look at what you made. One fun idea is to get customized cards every year so that you can see just how much your family has grown over the years. The fact that the cards are flat makes them easy to frame in case you want an exceptionally unique item to hang on the wall.
Designing Your Cards
Shutterfly offers numerous types of styles you can get your Christmas cards to come in. From the fairly simple to the detailed, plenty of cards are available to suit your personality. You can get cards to come with a single picture or have a beautiful collage. Whether this will be baby’s first Christmas or if your kids are off to college, these cards are excellent milestones for you to see just how far everyone has come. Say “Merry Christmas” in a way only you can with classic Holiday cards.
