"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!"
"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."
"Card arrived early, beautiful card stock, nice color, and professional look. Really liked the overall experience of making the card was easy. The quality and speed of delivery met all expectations."
"I never expected that making custom Christmas cards would be so easy and look so good. I'm very happy to have such a high quality card for a reasonable price. Now if they could read my mind and have all the envelopes printed with the addresses to whom I want the cards sent to I'd be all set!"
"I just got my order in the mail and was thrilled with the product. I was very pleased with the quailty of the cards, printing, and timely arrival!"
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.
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.
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.
