"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."
"I love shutterfly's quality of photos. I feel very confident ordering from shutterfly, knowing that when I make a project, my photos are going to be exactly as I took them......same lighting, same quality, just really great work! I ordered elsewhere recently trying to save on shipping costs and I was so disappointed in the quality of my pictures. THANKS SHUTTERFLY!!!!!"
"I have been using Shutterfly for my Christmas cards for the past few years. Every year is gets better. The selection of different styles, the ease of making the card, and the price of the service are all great. What is really amazing is the fact that I ordered my cards on Tuesday and they arrived at my home on Friday."
"I did these cards for my daughter of her two boys, one is 14 months and the other is 3 months. I thought it would be special for her to have them for Christmas. She cried when I gave them to her. It was so easy and quick. I will do this again."
Red and green is beautiful and traditional, and silver and gold is elegant, but what if you don’t want to use the same colors for your holiday décor that millions of other people are using? One of these color schemes could be just what you need for a more unique holiday season.
If you love the earth tones found in nature, use shades of green and brown for your holiday décor. The understated and sophisticated look works well if you prefer a minimalist theme. Add depth by using different shades of brown on a green tree. For your décor, stick to shades of green on brown backgrounds.
Traditionally, people pair Kelly green with red for the holiday season, but if you love the colors of the ocean and want a brighter holiday theme, pair it with baby blue and white instead. This color scheme is especially beautiful in homes that have white walls or white furniture. It will make the room look wintery without being overbearing.
Purple has long been known as the color of royalty, but you can soften it up and use it for the holiday season by using a shade of violet mixed with bronze, brown and white hues. If you would like a more masculine color scheme, use bronze and brown as the dominant colors and violet and white for slight accents. Bronze and violet also look especially beautiful against a white tree.
Maybe you just want something bright and modern. Perhaps your teenager would like to decorate her room for the holidays. Either way, hot pink and lime green are a terrific way to add colorful flair to your holiday decorations. Both colors also look great with silver accents, so you can even mix in a bit of the traditional holiday colors with your neon ones.
When updating your holiday color scheme, don’t forget about your cards. Shutterfly sells a variety of multicolor holiday cards, including a rainbow cheer Christmas card. You can even customize your selection to show your family’s unique style even more.
