What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

A Nice, Unconventional Holiday Card
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.)
Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere.
There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card.
Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card.
Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."

"I thought I had ordered my Christmas cards in plenty of time to get them and send them out before the Holiday Season. I was told they would arrive by Dec. 17th. When they still had not arrived on Dec. 20th and I saw they were still in production, I emailed the customer service dept. of Shutterfly. They were very helpful. Sped up my card production and had them shipped priority. Then came the glitch with Fed Ex. The cards were in MN the next day but didn't arrive at our house for four days. It was disappointing that I wasn't able to send my Holiday greeting cards before Christmas, but I was so pleased with the quality and Shutterfly's persistence to help me out and make me happy that it didn't matter. So our family and friends received our Christmas cards on the 5th day of Christmas. I'm sure they were able to spend more time looking at the beautiful quality of the card and enjoy it more than right before Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Shutterfly. Next year I will get them to you earlier."

Quick and easy!
"Once I was able to sit down during the holidays and actually put my time into creating our holiday cards, it was quick and easy. I had plenty of room to add all the pictures I wanted plus say what I wanted to say. This Christmas card was just perfect for a family of four kids and parents. I was glad I purchased the group-on that gave me 30 cards for $20.00 plus shipping. That was an early Christmas gift for me!"

Joyful Christmas Card
"Turned out great. Was easy to do. I really enjoyed doing it."

"Everything is just fine except the size/location of your logo. For a card where I'd like to write a few personal notes, your logo takes up valuable center space and is larger than the message written above it. Would like to see the logo smaller and in a bottom corner."
Purple Christmas Cards
Sending out yearly Christmas cards is a great way to connect with friends and family and to revel in the holiday spirit. This tradition brings people together even when they haven’t been able to connect throughout the year. Recipients often look forward to getting their cards each holiday season in order to add Christmas cheer to their homes and to receive that special touch from a loved one. Personalized cards take that special touch even further, as they reflect a family or individual’s unique style and showcase their growth.
Everyone associates Christmas with red and green, but why not step out of the box with purple Christmas cards? Shutterfly has a large selection of purple cards to say “Season’s Greetings” to those you care about. The colors range from vibrant purple to deep plum. Purple is associated with vitality and community, and your cards are sure to stand out from the rest on your recipient’s fireplace mantel. Purple is a great backdrop for black and white photos, and for color photos with soft tones. You can even have your family dress up in purple to match the color of the cards. Shutterfly also offers Spanish language options, “Happy Holidays” cards and even New Year's cards. They have options for a single photo or for multiple photos, and you can choose which edge you like best, whether it be sharp or rounded.
Purple Christmas Gifts
Want even more purple? Give your loved one a one-of-a-kind gift with a purple theme. Shutterfly offers pillows, iPhone cases, bedding and more. These make for great Christmas presents, or for any type of present year round. To complete your themed Christmas cards, you can also select violet hued address labels and thank you cards.
Celebrate your love of purple and your love for the holidays with Shutterfly’s purple Christmas cards. These cozy cards help make any Christmas extra special and represent your fun-loving spirit.
