"It is a bueatiful card no down side"
"Great holiday card!"
"I chose to inclde black and white photographs and they turned out better than expected. The cards turned out great. Love them."
Every winter, thousands of holiday cards travel across the United States and the world in hopes of making their recipients smile or even laugh. If you have been thinking of ways to make your own holiday greetings more personal for your family and friends, the good news is you can design your entire card from scratch.
Choose Some Pictures
When you design your own cards on Shutterfly, you can include one or several pictures. Show off your new hairstyle, let everyone meet your new pet or take a family photo with the new baby. You can opt for one large image if you have a favorite, or if you can’t choose just one, opt for a card with a collage theme.
Think About Your Colors
Do you want to go with traditional Christmas colors like red and green, or would you prefer something elegant and understated in black and white? Maybe you love bright colors. That works, too. Simply choose a design with all the colors of the rainbow.
Decide on a Font
From fancy script to whimsical fonts with Christmas trees as the letter “A,” your options are varied. Remember to choose a basic font for the smaller text on your card. Anything too fancy will be too hard to read in a small size, meaning your family and friends won’t get the full effect of your card.
Pick Your Edges
Who says you have to stick to traditional rectangles or square holiday cards? From scallop edged Christmas cards to rounded designs and more, you can choose something that fits the theme of your card, but still fits in a traditional envelope as well. Don’t worry if you prefer a more traditional edge. Those are still available, too.
Once you’ve chosen your design elements, all you need to do is fill in the information and order. You will receive your cards within a week or two. Remember to order in enough time to mail them all by the second week of December. This ensures your recipients receive them before the holidays are over.
