2012 Holiday Cards
"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."

"I have been using Shutterfly for quite a while now (mostly for photo books) and they have continued to improve their tools to the point that I just love creating things with them. Of course, the more I get, the more I want. ;-) Sometimes I love a card/label design/color, but the photo orientation (landscape vs portrait) is wrong for the photo I want to use. But even my second choice turns out great! Just one tip for anyone going digital to print - remember that your photos will look brighter on a computer screen, so you may want to lighten some of them up for any printed versions. Maybe Shutterfly has suggested that and I've missed it. Anyway, thanks Shutterfly - you help the creative me and have become quite a friend. :-)"

"The cards were beautiful. The paper was very thick and made the cards feel more elegant. Our photo had a white background which looked perfect in this card."

"I love Shutterfly, this was the first project I did. Making Christmas cards was simple the hardest part was choosing a card. I liked so many and using the favorite's feature I was able to narrow it down. I was really surprised to receive an email when I was done that allowed me to track my package with Fed Ex daily. I received my cards pretty quick and I was really happy with the results. I love love them."
Grey Holiday Cards
Every year, millions of people around the world send holiday cards to their friends and family, often attempting to outdo both the cards of others and their own from previous years. Typically, people try to accomplish this by adding elaborate graphics and other frills in an effort to catch the eyes of the recipients.
Shutterfly allows you can take a different approach by cutting down on the number of little additions and investing in a set of grey holiday cards. While using such a color might seem counterintuitive at first, there are actually numerous benefits that come with this selection.
Directing the Focus
Adding a bunch of graphics and lettering to your holiday cards, while initially attention-grabbing, can ultimately look like an unappealing mess. By choosing something a bit plainer, you have the ability to direct the recipient’s attention to the parts that matter the most, namely the central greeting and your photographs.
If you really want the colors in your photographs and your family’s smiling faces to stand out, it’s best to have a grey holiday card that guides attention rather than competes for it. However, there are still plenty of ways in which you can customize your Christmas cards to make them unique, including portrait and landscape orientations, myriad design options as well as trim and print color options.
Covering Your Bases
Holiday cards are far from the only items Shutterfly offers. If you would like to avoid having to venture out into the stressful and hectic world of holiday shopping, Shutterfly has a great selection of items that make for great gifts. For instance, you can keep your spouse warm during the winter months with a custom plush fleece blanket. Alternatively, you can spruce up your living room for everyone to enjoy with a framed art print.
