"I am very pleased with these greeting cards, like always. I try to get a batch out at main holidays every few months and always come to Shutterfly as I know they have quality products with a lot of special offers."
"Gorgeous cards! I love how all Shutterfly cards are such high quality!"
"I like to send out photo cards thought the year not just at Christmas. The upload your own design option allows me to send cards at times when there isn't a premade template and gives me option to add many photos since I have a large family. Especially for Halloween, Easter or the 4th of July. I always get so many compliments on the cards I send out and my family loves getting the more frequent cards with pictures of my kids since we don't get to see everyone as often as we would like."
"These turned out better than expected! The quality is very nice, it was very easy to work with the formatting and they arrived in a timely manner."
"We ordered this invitation with the "ticket" style (corners notched out) - and it's absolutely beautiful. Easy to read, nice layout and heavy card-stock."

Aim to send out invitations at least three weeks before the festivities to allow your friends and family to make arrangements to attend your party.
Planning the Party
Once you have an idea about the RSVPs, you will have a better idea about how many hot dogs and hamburgers to prepare. If you are outside (in the sun) be sure to have extra sunscreen and bug spray on hand. If you live where it’s hot, be prepared to fight the humidity and have lots of water for your guests. Not sure about the decorations? Stock up on things that are red, white and blue. Get your backyard, deck or patio party-ready with custom outdoor pillows. Also, serving trays will help you easily get drinks from one place to another. Personalized mason jars make sturdy mason jars and fun takeaways for your summer party.
