"I created these blank greeting cards out of my own illustration hand drawn and scanned from my children's book. I send these cards out to thank people who buy my book which supports a local charity. The quality is excellent, the colors are bright and the envelope and card are sturdy. I am happy to send out these high quality, beautiful cards to my generous donors and will continue to create more!"
"Came out super nice, everyone loved getting them"
"I had a $25 gift card to Shutterfly so thought, yes it's only June but what better time to get ahead of the game and order holiday cards for Christmas/holiday season. Shutterfly was so easy to use, not to mention the selection of card backgrounds available. Prices were great as there was a 40% discount going on too. I ordered them and within days they were in my mailbox. When I opened the package I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the cards were. Excellent quality as far as paper and color. I would highly recommend them to anyone!"
"Have yet to find anything in Shutterfly's collection that I don't like. They are great!"
"Love the cards & loved getting them on sale!"
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.
