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."
Red Holiday Cards
There are few colors that suggest the winter holidays more than red. Anciently associated with royalty and power, this hue is both warm and rich, evoking a sense of comfort and adding that cozy touch to your personalized cards. Personalized holiday cards are the perfect choice when you want your notes to be noticed, so design a few today and make your statement this year. Whether you live in a climate with snow or not, white is the perfect tone to use as an accent for fonts, graphics or backgrounds.
Add Red Accessories for the Perfect Holiday Snapshot
Getting those perfect family snapshots for your cards begins with coordinating wardrobe choices for the whole family, even the pets that will be included in the photo. Consider using red as your accent tone and pair it with black, grey, cream or white for a pop of color. These classic hue combinations are timeless, elegant and perfect for both formal and informal settings. A red sweater vest, scarf or hair bow adds a touch of color and makes the whole scene cheerier. For a more dramatic effect, use red in layers. Crimson leggings, jackets and boots are the perfect way to say “holiday.”
Gifts for Family and Friends
Once the cards are in the mail, it’s time to get serious about finishing that shopping list. If you are looking for the perfect gift for that special someone in your life, consider a customizable wall calendar or photo jewelry. In a short time, you can design a personalized gift that expresses just how much you care.
Need something a little more masculine? Use a snapshot or two to create custom phone case or desktop plaque. That special guy, be it dad or sweetheart, will be sure to remember your thoughtfulness each time he answers a call or arrives at the office. With the shopping finished and the cards delivered, it’s time to settle in and enjoy spending time with your family this holiday season.
