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."

great, sturdy card
"This card is sturdy and seems to be of good quality. It allows you to add a main (front) picture, 2 more on the inside, and one on the back. I had only planned for 1 picture, so I left the other spots empty, but I wish I had realized it sooner so I could have found additional photos to add for the same price."

Great X-Mas Card
"We went with a single photo of the kids this year vs. multiple family photos and this card was perfect as we expect from Shutterfly. Easy to create, pay and received the cards within 2 days. The paper stock is sturdy and feels like a quality card. The photo quality was perfect with no distortion from the printing process. The envelopes were very nice and had a richness to them we didn't expect. Much higher quality than we expected."
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.
