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."
Foil Christmas Cards
If you’ve received Christmas cards from friends and family over the years, you have probably noticed that some of the styles can get repetitive. In order to dazzle your loved one with something new, create foil stamped Christmas cards.
Foil stamped cards have an extra layer of luxury built in. The card’s gold or silver imprinted foil draws in light for extra shimmer and shine. These can be the perfect way to truly celebrate the holiday spirit, as the real foil adds even more festivity. When your loved one places this card on their fireplace mantle or fridge, it will really stand out from the pack.
Add Shimmer and Shine to the Holiday Season
Holiday cards aren’t just for Christmas. You can send your season’s greetings for the New Year as well. New Year’s cards are becoming increasingly popular. They make a good choice for those who have missed the Christmas card deadline, and they’re more culturally friendly, as not everyone celebrates Christmas.
Shutterfly has a selection of stunning foil stamped cards to celebrate the New Year. These picture cards can feature yourself, your family or anyone else you’d like to acknowledge… even your dog! The simple cards highlight the photo, and you can add a personalized message to make it even more unique. The gold foil stamps really transform the card into a treasure that recipients will likely want to hold onto long after the holidays are over.
A Touch of Elegance
Your foil stamped cards deserve an extra special mailer. A personalized postage stamp brings joy to your loved ones even before they open the envelope. Put unique Christmas card messages on a stamp or upload a photo for an extra personalized touch. Custom self-inking rubber stamps are also a great way to spice up the envelope. These stamps replace a standard address label and provide a level of elegance that matches the foil stamped cards. With these extra special details, your Christmas cards are sure to bring a smile to your receipts.
