2012 Holiday Cards
"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 took advantage of the 10 free holiday card offer, and "only" had to pay the almost $7 shipping, which I felt was rather high. The card itself was a beautiful design. However I was a little disappointed with the quality of the print of the picture. The black jacket my husband was wearing appeared purple-ish, seeming to indicate to me that Shutterfly's printing color was running low. If I had paid $.80+ and per card and gotten all my Christmas cards here, I would have been very unhappy, as the picture I submitted was fine, and the original photo showed the jacket black. I will continue to order through Shutterfly, however, since they usually do quality work."

These cards were a success
"These cards were a hit with everyone this year. Loved all of the pictures I put on the card - both sides. Writing is small and needs to be enlarged. Love the bright colors. Very happy with this purchase"

Love the Card, Except the Signature
"The card is beautiful. The picture quality is perfect and the text is nice. However, the signature is tiny and didn't allow me to make it multilined which frustrated me a bit. Not a big deal but please consider a multiline signature for this in the future."
Connecting With Distant Relatives Around the Holidays
Christmas is the perfect time of year to catch up with distant relatives and friends that have moved away. Many families have a tradition of sending snapshots and long letters to people during the holidays. Whether you love sending elegant Christmas cards or holiday cards with a warm letter tucked inside, multi photo Christmas cards offer an excellent way to showcase all the events of the past year. Have you welcomed a new baby into your family? Moved to a new home? Graduated from college? Collect all your favorite images of the past year together and let Shutterfly help you design the perfect photo collage greeting card.
Bringing Distant Family Members Together
There are lots of ways to go about preparing your multi photo Christmas cards for the year. In fact, there are several creative ideas you can consider even if your family members are not all together at one time. Here are a few fun suggestions that will get your inspiration flowing:
Create a theme that everyone can participate in. Your theme might be holiday sweaters, baking, pets, decorating the Christmas tree, making ornaments, or caroling. Simply have each family member take a picture of themselves participating in the theme and collect the images together.
Highlight all four seasons. Pick one or two images that best represent each of the four seasons of the past year. The first day of school, that special summer road trip, or celebrating a springtime birthday can all be part of your Christmas card this year.
Take photographs around your neighborhood or city. Show off the very best your city has to offer by taking photos of your family members near scenic places. These images are sure to brighten up the season of relatives who live in distant locations.
