"I was impressed by the quality (stock) of the card. I used this as the thank you for my twin daughters' communion thank you. I have received many compliments on the card. I would definitely use again."
"I've made cards through Shutterfly for years. This is the first time I've made Christmas cards on photo paper. I love them! The photos are so sharp, the designs are so colorful. And they're lightweight, so I know one stamp will be enough. I will be making a lot more!"
"The combination of my specific photo, the card's design and its theme makes for a special Christmas Card. I did however, buy this along with a 10 card promotion; otherwise, I could not have afforded it. Everything has become so much more expensive."
"I love ordering holiday cards from Shutterfly. It is so easy to use their templates and the cards look very professional. And most important they are a great value. I especially like the folded cards."
"I already knew what I wanted for this year's Christmas Card, so I ordered them early when there was a good promotion."
You've probably sent hundreds of traditional cards in your life. You know the kind -- bifold, with a seasonal greeting inside, and everyone you know gets hundreds of them, too. Or maybe you've always sent updated photo cards, so it's time to maintain your place in the halls of holiday card cool with gate folded holiday cards. These folded cards let you select photos that encapsulate your family's joy while wishing the same to others. The large size is unexpected, so it should inspire a big smile. Inspired by how much we all love photo-sharing social media sites that let us look at grids or streams of photos in various sizes, these holiday cards are an awesome way to make your holiday modern and fun.
Gate Folded Cards Still Let You Stay Traditional
Even if you're ready to experiment with this hot card style, you still might want to stick to traditional messages or include a collage-style layout of photos like you have in other years. You definitely can with selections that offer you the ultimate in personalization. Pick one photo to show off in a bigger size and then create a border of smaller, square photos around it. Some styles let you pick up to six photos, so there's no shortage of good times to share on your holiday cards this year! But if you're back to feeling like you want to play around with the coolest cards out there, you can pick a bracket, ticket, or scalloped silhouettes.
Holiday Cards Can Use Any Photos These Days
Ever get one of those Christmas cards with everyone in Santa outfits or pretending to take part in a Nativity play? Some Hannukah cards see families pull out the dreidels for playful photos. Those can be a hilarious and super-fun way to make memories with your family, but, these days, holiday cards can feature any photo style you like. If you're going with modern gate folded holiday cards, you could also consider using an atmospheric black-and-white photo or a cinematic shot with lots of foregrounds to make your cards unique and memorable.
