This website for placing a simple card order is the worst.

"Impossible. All the other reviews that express frustration with using the Shutterfly website are correct. It is worse than frustrating."

Christmas card order

"Thank you Shutterfly. When I ordered these originally, I misunderstood and added photos to both pages inside the card, leaving no room to write my message! I called Shutterfly and they gave me a credit, I redesigned the card at no charge. Merry Christmas Shutterfly. I so appreciated this!"

Build the Perfect Invitations for Your Child’s First Communion

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.

First Communion Presents for the Big Day

Invites are hardly the only preparation to take for the big day. There’s also food to prepare, clothes to pick, and presents to choose. If you are looking for a personal keepsake for the child experiencing a first communion this year, our selection of personalized keepsakes includes both functional items and decorative choices. Pick out a puzzle set for the special girl or boy, or choose wooden magnets to create a keepsake you can give to godparents, grandparents, and other close relatives.

When you plan your invitation and gift purchase, don’t forget to refresh yourself on thank you note etiquette with our handy guide. Your guests will appreciate it more than they will ever tell you.
