"I made thank you cards using a few photos of my toddler son, to send as thank you notes when various relatives and family friends give him a toy or gift. The cards are such a hit. So much more meaningful to have this personalized card than a store bought thank you card, and for about the same price or less than the store bought card. The quality of the cards and pictures are great. As my son grows up, I'm sure I will continue to design and buy personalized thank you cards like these. Such a special and meaningful way to thank someone for their generosity."
"Having enjoyed several Shutterfly photo books received as gifts from my son, I couldn't resist trying to create them myself. The ease of creation and the wonderful results got me hooked on Shutterfly. I've created six books so far, and I have the intention of scanning in all our photos and creating photo books to showcase them all. Just when I thought this photo creativity couldn't get any better, I decided to try my hand at greeting cards. My wife and I recently retired to the west coast and wanted some all-purpose cards to use for note cards and thank you cards. The quality of the cards I received has surpassed my expectation by a mile. They are incredible. I went with matte finish which I prefer. The cards are coated in what seems to be a plastic protective layer which will likely make these cards keepers. They're nice enough to frame. Even with the shipping cost, the cards are cost effective to give as one-off personalized birthday cards. I'll never use a store bought card again."
"Great quality nice paper beautiful design. I was happy with these thank you cards!"
"I received my thank you cards in a timely manner. They were of great quality. I plan to continue using Shutterfly for all my needs."
"I ordered 5x7 wedding thank you cards with three pictures on the front and one picture on the back side and three from the inside. I ordered them on Tuesday and received them on Thursday. I LOVE THESE CARDS. they are beautiful. better than what I was expecting. The only dissappointment was getting a hold of a customer service rep on the phone. I emailed them with couple of questions and almost got an emmediate email back. The first time tried to call on the phone and i had an estimate hold time of 60 minutes !!!!??? Couple of days latter I called and was on hold for 15 minutes and talked to someone that was very helpful. He answered my question in 5 minutes.... Despite of long hold on the phone, the produce was excpetional. i am going to order my wedding picture 4x6 pictures also."
Planning your child’s first birthday party is a momentous occasion that is almost more fun for you than it is for your child. Sending birthday invitations, planning cute party decorations and buying adorable monogram thank you cards is always an exciting process. Then, of course, there is the anticipated first birthday cake that is more likely to end up all over the floor than in your adorable child’s mouth. Keep in mind that before you can finalize all of the birthday plans, you first need to come up with a theme that is fitting for the big occasion. Here are a few birthday party theme ideas to get you started.
When choosing a party theme, keep your child’s nursery décor in mind. Is his or her room decorated with fairies, superheroes, sports paraphernalia or animals? Try purchasing invitations, décor, gifts and thank you cards that complement the nursery.
Your child will love seeing their favorite book or movie character come to life at their party. Whether it’s Mickey Mouse, Cinderella or Old McDonald, you should be able to find paper ware, balloons and décor that feature your chosen character or at least tie into the Disney, princess or farm theme. Make the party extra special by inviting someone to come dressed up as your child’s favorite character.
Since your child is still quite young, he or she probably won’t care much about their party theme. If this is the case, you can choose a theme that your family will love. If your family is into sports, for example, a sports theme will be appreciated. If your family loves to travel, choose an international party theme. Your baby won’t mind, and your family will love your thoughtfulness.
Although your child is too young to write, it is still important to send thank you cards after the party is over. Choose fun designs like monogram thank you cards featuring a photo of your child enjoying his or her birthday party.
