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 have been using Shutterfly for quite a while now (mostly for photo books) and they have continued to improve their tools to the point that I just love creating things with them. Of course, the more I get, the more I want. ;-) Sometimes I love a card/label design/color, but the photo orientation (landscape vs portrait) is wrong for the photo I want to use. But even my second choice turns out great! Just one tip for anyone going digital to print - remember that your photos will look brighter on a computer screen, so you may want to lighten some of them up for any printed versions. Maybe Shutterfly has suggested that and I've missed it. Anyway, thanks Shutterfly - you help the creative me and have become quite a friend. :-)"

"The cards were beautiful. The paper was very thick and made the cards feel more elegant. Our photo had a white background which looked perfect in this card."

"I love Shutterfly, this was the first project I did. Making Christmas cards was simple the hardest part was choosing a card. I liked so many and using the favorite's feature I was able to narrow it down. I was really surprised to receive an email when I was done that allowed me to track my package with Fed Ex daily. I received my cards pretty quick and I was really happy with the results. I love love them."
Four Ways to Keep the Holiday Spirit Alive
With Christmas coming, you look forward to the holiday spirit and all of the cheer that comes with it. However, if you’re having a hard time really getting into things this holiday season, here are some ways to get into the spirit of the season and enjoy yourself like never before.
1. Start New Traditions and Celebrate Old Ones
Does your family have certain traditions they celebrate every year? If they do, make an effort to keep them going. You might be amazed at how much nostalgia you feel for years’ past. If you don’t have any traditions you want to carry on, come up with some new ones! You’ll be surprised at how much more fun they make the holiday season.
2. Spend Time With Family
The holiday season is all about spending time with family. Whether you decorate the tree, make sugar cookies or go ice skating together, make sure the time you spend with your family counts. Don’t let the stresses or the demands of the holiday season get to you and try to be fully present when you’re around those you love most.
3. Be Stereotypical
Even if you rolled your eyes at decorating the tree or singing carols when you were a teenager, you might be surprised at how much you enjoy stereotypical holiday activities now. If you’re feeling a little bit low, pour yourself a glass of eggnog, turn on some Christmas songs and cozy up by the fire.
4. Spread Holiday Cheer
There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirt by spreading cheer. With so many holiday card options, like pink holiday cards, beige holiday cards and more from Shutterfly, there’s no better way to spread cheer than by sending out cards to friends, family members and neighbors. The best part is that preparing your holiday cards in advance can save you time for other things later on.
