"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."
"Wonderful thick, quality cards! Beautiful design! Can't wait to share!"
"Many choices are available which I liked and user friendly for the most part. The quality of photos excellent and we received compliments on the cards. Also, I appreciated the prompt and professional service from the time I placed my order to receiving them in the mail. Thank you!"
"We have always gone to a local person for our cards but unfortunately he went out of business this year. We decided to give Shutterfly a try as we had received a free 8x8 photo book coupon due to a Best Buy purchase. We not only got this amazing, free book (very easy to put together), we did our Christmas cards with Shutterfly as well and they are BEAUTIFUL! Thanks Shutterfly, you now have a new loyal customer...and we have already done 3 more photo books for gifts!"
Christmas cards are not the only way to get a season’s greeting to your loved ones. Consider sending out “Happy New Year” holiday cards during the holiday season instead. Shutterfly offers a variety of different colors when shopping for Holiday New Years cards in beige, red, and pink.
Seriously, think about just how busy the holidays can be. From the moment Black Friday hits to the night St. Nick makes his rounds, there is nary a moment to sit down and tackle a stack of cards. Sure, you could do them in November, but chances are you are still reeling from the sugar crash of Halloween and are gearing up to sit around a table for marathon dining over Thanksgiving.
Creating New Year’s cards allows you to procrastinate a bit longer while still getting in on the holiday spirit. People wish a happy new year for days -- even weeks -- after the big event, so if you are a few days after the first, it will still work just fine. It is also likely to stick around on the fridge a bit longer instead of being packed away with the tree since it is not specifically geared towards the Christmas season.
New Year card options range from classic to monogrammed New Year's cards with a simple script, as with the lively colors and fun design of the merry & bright New Year’s cards. Add a hint of glitz to the moment with one of the foil-stamped options. For an extra-festive touch, pour a handful of confetti or glitter to the envelope before sealing. Take note, however, that this is not always the best way to endear yourself to some adults (read: those responsible for vacuuming), but you will be a hit with the youngsters in the crowd.
“Happy New Year” holiday cards have fast become a growing trend, and for good reason. Send inspirational new year messages a week later this year, guilt-free.
