"I have used Shutterfly's option of uploading my own design for years now, for every occasion, and I've made dozens of cards this way. It is consistently good, with nice choices for size, layout, and cardstock. My one suggestion: this option of doing your own design isn't featured clearly right now in the choice options under all the different kinds of cards for various occasions, and I think it would be much easier to find if it were featured more obviously. Right now, I wouldn't know where to look for it if I wanted to do it without ever having done it before because it's buried in the various options (if you go to holiday cards, for instance). It should be featured as its own option because I imagine there are lots of people like me who, for some occasions, want to make their own cards and don't want the pre-set designs."

"was a great gift"
"Sweet little watercolor design. Great Shutterfly quality paper and printing. Super quick shipping! Love, love, love 💙"
"I just ordered my Christmas/Holiday cards from Shutterfly. I really appreciate how good the photos come out and I like the pearlized paper. It is much nicer than then the matt paper. I have been buying cards from Shutterfly for years now and they do not disappoint me."
Your wedding was an amazing event enjoyed by all and now it's time to write the thank you cards. You can choose cards which fit the theme of your wedding or use some simple, elegant silver thank you cards. Whichever you use, you can save yourself time with these little tips.
Everyone expects that you won't be writing thank you notes while on your honeymoon, so you do have some time before these cards will be expected. Taking your time means you have the opportunity to write something personal to each person.
You'll have the guest book and any other list for gifts which, hopefully, your bridal party put together. Check the two lists together and see if someone who came is missing a gift entry. Take some time to verify whether or not there was a gift. You should still send a card at least thanking them for attending.
To avoid redoing multiple cards, you can use a computer document to write up some rough drafts. This will also help get your creative juices flowing to write nice, personal messages to your friends and family. If you're struggling to write personal messages for everyone, then the rough draft stage is also a good time to come up with a few variations on a formal thank you.
Most projects go quicker when two people do them instead of one. You and your spouse can divide the list and both write notes, or you can divide the tasks so that one person is handling the address labels and stamps while another writes.
Thanking your guests and bridal party after your wedding is a definite must for proper etiquette. With some planning and maybe a little help, you can get your cards out in a timely manner to show how much you appreciate everyone's help and involvement in your special day. Whether you choose gold or silver thank you cards, you can further customize them online with photos and decorations.
