"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."
"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium. I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."
"My biggest problem with all my Shutterfly projects is choosing appropriate pictures. Some may have the same problem. It is an artistic problem but real and may affect how pleased you are with the product. As in any program the more you use it the easier it becomes. That being said I find the quality to be superb. It is easy to navigate through the program and to make corrections. The colors are true to what my monitor portrays. The vivid tones are absolutely beautiful! I wouldn't change a thing. I am happily satisfied."
"I absolutely LOVE Shutterfly customer service! I had ordered my holiday cards, but wanted to tweak a photo, but it was after the 30 minute window. I called and was able to tweak the photo and still have my cards arrive with 2 day shipping -- and at no extra cost to me. What fabulous service! Thank you Shutterfly."
"FANTASTIC card. My only wish is that it was more affordable. I did have to cut my chrismtas list down by half because of the expense of this card... but to those that I sent it to... they LOVED it... just wish I could have shared with more... Love your customer service and your understanding. I work for a company that also is 100% customer satisfaction, but not quite like this... no questions asked, no doubt, just 100% customer satisfaction. I will always get my cards here!"
