"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."
"As usual, the folded photo cards look great and came right when promised. No defects at all. Great quality."
"They do a great job i use them for birthday and Christmas presents and tbey all love their gifts."
"Fantastic cards! The photos are crystal clear and printed on high quality card stock. Looking forward to sending them to friends and family this Christmas!! I've never "created" holiday cards before, but when I received an email to get a few free, I decided to try it. Not sure I'd pay the full price, but the cards sure are nice."
The tiny little details of the holiday season are what make everything more magical and delightful. Beautiful nativity scenes with hand carved wooden pieces, crisp silver wrapping paper with carefully tied white bows and quality Christmas cards are some of the things that make the yuletide special.

Shutterfly gives you different cardstock options to choose from, so you can be sure to have the prettiest paper this year.
While many types of correspondence are now sent virtually, the quintessential Christmas card still makes the most impact when sent via the post office. The simple act of opening a fine envelope and discovering a gorgeous holiday card inside is one of the greatest gifts at Christmas you can give those who are far away.
