"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."
"Love this picture card ornament!! Has option for one picture on front & two more on the back. Also has text boxes for each picture!! Great card & snowflake shape makes it perfect!! Thanks:-)"
"I was very happy with this product. Quality excellent. Photos clear. I have also done a few photo books. I absolutely recommend those. They come out beautifully."
"These cards are purrrrfect for the animal lover and so easy to create! It took me a matter of minutes to edit these cards and into my cart. I highly recommend them whose kids are not necessarily human, but the small (or big) and furry kind :)"
There’s nothing better than a beautifully wrapped present, complete with pretty foil paper and a large intricate bow. Receiving a present purposefully packaged like this makes the recipient feel even more special. You can recreate this feeling with your Christmas cards by selecting premium gold foil Christmas cards this year. With Shutterfly, you can choose from a variety of holiday greetings featuring gold foil touches to make your card shine with festivity. Then, when your family and friends open the card, they can relieve that amazing feeling of unwrapping a perfect present.
Just like the magic of Christmas is made even more merry with holiday décor around the house and outside in your neighborhood, your holiday cards can be made more magical with their decor. Instead of a boring card that simply wishes happy holiday greetings to your closest friends, you can give it some pizazz with foil stamped embellishments. Adding a little more décor to your Christmas card makes it even more merry and bright for this holiday season. If you want to take your Christmas card game up to the next level, you could even customize your look to create a holiday ornament card. Your family and friends can add to their Christmas tree design with a tasteful look from your card. Another option to give it more sparkle is to play around with the style of trim around the edge of your card. Rather than the typical square or rectangular edge of a card, you may want to use a scallop edge to give it even more of a unique design.
Sending the people you love a holiday greeting is one way to mail your love in a package you personalize. Be sure to take the time to carefully craft the look of your card in order to express your holiday spirit. Dazzling design elements, such as gold foil, sparkle and fancy edges can help you share your good cheer to all.
