"Shutterfly is my go to for special occasion cards, my daughter's 1st Communion definitely qualifies!"
"these custom, personalized cards are a total hit for birthday parties and other events. Usually people toss away cards after the event but i've seen people keep these because i made them with their pictures on it. they are so easy to make and it brings back so many memories when you see special pictures on each card. the price is reasonable also. cards cost anywhere from 0.50-6 for a fancy card. these are personalized and you can't beat that."
"I bought these invitations for my daughter's communion party, they are so pretty! Very happy with my purchase!"
"Very simple and cute..."
"They are on a very nice quality paper and the end product was exactly as I expected."
Sacramental milestones are rare and important in the church; that’s why parents work so hard to commemorate them as they come and go. When you have a young one who is about to experience a first communion, your invitations should reflect everything that went into their journey. That means they should feature you, your family, and the people who have supported your child throughout the Catechism, helping to get them ready to join your spiritual community. When you use DIY first communion invitations that let you upload your design, you had the opportunity to create a truly unique invitation that your friends and family will remember.
Using the Layout Creator and Editor
Like the rest of the customizable products on Shutterfly, you can easily shape your customizable invitations in the editor interface. Just upload your images in common file formats, add the copy in the right spots, and then arrange them into a template that has just the right balance of images and text. The result is simple and easy, and it lets you set up your custom invites in just a few minutes.
