"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."
"These cards were beautiful and I received them very quickly. Thank you."
"I can't imagine trying to get through the holidays without Shutterfly! Christmas Cards to the masses, Thank you Cards for all those that do and give so much, Calendars to help family keep track of important dates while giving them the joy of seeing the family each month of the year! Thanks Shutterfly for making it so easy and affordable!"
"The design for this card is uniquely beautiful, crisp, clean, and classy. The colors are as shown, not as rich or dark as I prefer, but the brighter red was still pleasing and coordinates well with the muted green."
You want to send season’s greetings to loved ones who celebrate Christmas? Fantastic! Happy holiday cards will do just that! But, wait -- you also want to send warm wishes to friends and family who celebrate Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa or any number of other holidays that dot the fall and winter landscape? Not a problem. Holiday, which is derived from the phrase “holy day,” can cover each and every one, allowing you to choose a singular design to fulfill all of your card needs.
This is the perfect time to remind those far away what you and your family look like nowadays. Whether you have kids, fur babies or a bedazzled sweater that you absolutely adore, add in a picture to share it with everyone who counts! Consider a tri-fold design like the winter holiday card, which offers space on both the front and back for photographic evidence of a life well-lived. Or, make a statement with one strong image surrounded by sparkles with a glitter holiday card, which will liven up any card display.
It is imperative to have an updated address book so none of your hard work gets returned mid-January. Curate your list early so you have time to verify changes that may have gone unnoticed at the time they occurred. Be sure you have complete addresses including apartment numbers and post office box information when creating your address labels. On the flip side of this coin, if there have been any changes to your own address, be sure to send out a notice to friends and family to ensure you do not miss out on correspondence they may have sent. If your move is recent, consider including an update alert to your happy holiday cards with the new info.
Send your holiday cards early to make sure they are delivered prior to respective holidays. You can also opt for the delivery service to have them sent directly from Shutterfly, marking yet another task from your holiday to-do list.
