"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."
The holiday season is the perfect time to reach out to let friends and family know they are close to your heart and in your thoughts by sending out “Merry Christmas” holiday cards.
Family and close friends should most definitely top your list, but consider adding on those loved ones from whom you have drifted. This is a good time to reach out to touch base and renew relationships that have faded. You also do not have to stick solely to those you know in your personal or social circles. Take this opportunity to offer your boss and co-workers season’s greetings or send your holiday cards to your neighbors who might enjoy a little extra cheer.
If you wish to keep it simple and just send greetings, go the image-free route with a classic design such as the wreath of wonder holiday card, which allows you to personalize a Christmas saying beneath an elegant script. This also allows you to get your cards ready well in advance. If you prefer to take this opportunity to send out updated family portraits, consider a card that features a photo. You are not limited to just one, however.
You can keep loved ones apprised of your year and milestones by creating a picture collage with a design like the rustic banner Christmas card, which has space for multiple images on the front as well as room on the back for additional photos or text. If you are looking for more of a keepsake card, check out the multiple ornament designs, which come with a satin ribbon and are ready to hang directly on the tree.
When life gets busy, it is easy to let too much time pass without reaching out. Let others know you are thinking of them with the simple act of sending a holiday card.
