What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

A Nice, Unconventional Holiday Card
"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 thought I had ordered my Christmas cards in plenty of time to get them and send them out before the Holiday Season. I was told they would arrive by Dec. 17th. When they still had not arrived on Dec. 20th and I saw they were still in production, I emailed the customer service dept. of Shutterfly. They were very helpful. Sped up my card production and had them shipped priority. Then came the glitch with Fed Ex. The cards were in MN the next day but didn't arrive at our house for four days. It was disappointing that I wasn't able to send my Holiday greeting cards before Christmas, but I was so pleased with the quality and Shutterfly's persistence to help me out and make me happy that it didn't matter. So our family and friends received our Christmas cards on the 5th day of Christmas. I'm sure they were able to spend more time looking at the beautiful quality of the card and enjoy it more than right before Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Shutterfly. Next year I will get them to you earlier."

Quick and easy!
"Once I was able to sit down during the holidays and actually put my time into creating our holiday cards, it was quick and easy. I had plenty of room to add all the pictures I wanted plus say what I wanted to say. This Christmas card was just perfect for a family of four kids and parents. I was glad I purchased the group-on that gave me 30 cards for $20.00 plus shipping. That was an early Christmas gift for me!"

Joyful Christmas Card
"Turned out great. Was easy to do. I really enjoyed doing it."

"Everything is just fine except the size/location of your logo. For a card where I'd like to write a few personal notes, your logo takes up valuable center space and is larger than the message written above it. Would like to see the logo smaller and in a bottom corner."
Multicolor Christmas Cards
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.
Make It Fun
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.
Prepare for Anything
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.
