"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.) Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere. There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card. Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card. Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."
"I love shutterfly and everything they offer. This card was no exception. The product I recieved is exactly what I saw online-no surprises. I would recommend it."
"I ordered this card to send out for 2012. I don't see a lot of family throughout the year and I loved being able to write a little something about our family to share with them. I was very happy with them when I received them in the mail and I also got a lot of great comments on them as well. Everyone loved them!"
"I love the colors! Everything is great about this card, dont forget to do the back. Lots of space on the back, but the tiny pictures are hard to see, so dont get more than 3 pictures."
It is often the case that during Christmastime, we find ourselves overwhelmed with the number of things that need to be done in order to satisfy the unspoken requirements of the season of giving. With all of the gifts that need to be purchased, the meals that need to be prepared and get-togethers that need to be organized, there are inevitably going to be a few things that slip through the cracks. If, as the holiday becomes nearer and nearer, you start to receive Christmas cards only to realize that you haven’t sent any yourself, Shutterfly has you covered with a great selection of multicolor Christmas cards.
While much of the fervor surrounding the holidays involves going out of the house and into the throngs of similarly stressed people in order to check items off of your list, the process of sending holiday cards doesn’t have to be nearly as tiring and can in fact be fun. Our multicolor Christmas cards are intentionally sparse on wording and graphics so that one or more photographs of your family can be the center of attention when your recipients open up the envelope.
We give you several customization options as well, including the choice of a portrait or landscape orientation as well as the paper type and finish. Just input your selections, messages and photos and we’ll send the batch to you so that you can avoid another trip to a crowded store. Having trouble writing down what to say on your Christmas card? Shutterfly put together more than 100 Christmas sayings and messages to help you figure out what to write on your card.
While Christmastime is arguably the busiest holiday of the year, there are plenty of other events for which you will likely require methods of notifying friends and family. Come back to Shutterfly if, for instance, someone in your family has a birthday celebration coming up or if you and your spouse are making a moving announcement. With us, you can be assured that your stationery needs will be met in style.
