What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

Love these snowflake Christmas cards!
"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"

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."

Professional Looking Card
"Shutterfly produced a nice holiday greeting card that I can send to friends and family. The shipping and handling charge was expensive though."
3/4 Christmas Cards
Many people have resorted to simply emailing Christmas cards these days. While it might be easier, it still lacks the emotional sentiment that comes with mailing a physical card that has pictures of you and your family. A truly unique option is to send out quarterfold Christmas cards. In addition to having a main picture on the front, you can fill the inside with additional photos to showcase every member of the family.
Why Send a Physical Christmas Card?
By sending a custom Christmas cards, you are doing more than simply wishing someone a Merry Christmas. You are telling the people in your life that you took the time to craft a card that reflects your personality and lets them know what your family has been up to this year. Physical Christmas cards also express a wide range of emotion that you simply cannot convey over a computer screen. Joy, humor, admiration and love are just some of the emotions you are able to showcase through customized quarterfold Christmas cards.
One advantage many people talk about after getting personalized cards from Shutterfly is the fact that they are high-level professional quality such as these snowflake Christmas cards. Printing cards from home simply will not produce the same vibrancy you will get from Shutterfly, especially when dealing with quarterfold cards that need to be produced in a specific manner.
The Perfect Card for This Holiday Season
Whether you recently had a photoshoot in the snow, in front of a fireplace or at the beach, quarterfold Christmas cards are the perfect way to show multiple photos within a single card. You can get cards that essentially serve as a newsletter to let people know all the fun you had this last year. Your loved ones are certain to appreciate the hard work that was put into the card, and they will definitely decorate their fireplace mantle with your thoughtful gift.
