What customers have to say about our Christmas Cards

A Nice, Unconventional Holiday Card
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.)
Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere.
There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card.
Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card.
Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."

"I thought I had ordered my Christmas cards in plenty of time to get them and send them out before the Holiday Season. I was told they would arrive by Dec. 17th. When they still had not arrived on Dec. 20th and I saw they were still in production, I emailed the customer service dept. of Shutterfly. They were very helpful. Sped up my card production and had them shipped priority. Then came the glitch with Fed Ex. The cards were in MN the next day but didn't arrive at our house for four days. It was disappointing that I wasn't able to send my Holiday greeting cards before Christmas, but I was so pleased with the quality and Shutterfly's persistence to help me out and make me happy that it didn't matter. So our family and friends received our Christmas cards on the 5th day of Christmas. I'm sure they were able to spend more time looking at the beautiful quality of the card and enjoy it more than right before Christmas. I was very pleased. Thank you Shutterfly. Next year I will get them to you earlier."

Quick and easy!
"Once I was able to sit down during the holidays and actually put my time into creating our holiday cards, it was quick and easy. I had plenty of room to add all the pictures I wanted plus say what I wanted to say. This Christmas card was just perfect for a family of four kids and parents. I was glad I purchased the group-on that gave me 30 cards for $20.00 plus shipping. That was an early Christmas gift for me!"

Joyful Christmas Card
"Turned out great. Was easy to do. I really enjoyed doing it."

"Everything is just fine except the size/location of your logo. For a card where I'd like to write a few personal notes, your logo takes up valuable center space and is larger than the message written above it. Would like to see the logo smaller and in a bottom corner."
Snowflake Christmas Cards
Christmas is a time of celebration and joy with your family and friends. If you have a family, your kids may or may not be of Santa Clause-believing age, but no matter how old they are, this is a special time of year for them. Shutterfly lets you share life’s joy by allowing you to share your family’s Christmas greeting with friends and family. Give updates on the kids, send love to distant relatives and commemorate your family’s growth through the years. When personalizing snowflake Christmas cards, choose the pictures that represents your family and send them to your loved ones. This is just one of the many ways to make Christmas special.
Why Photos Matter
Photos help capture and preserve memories for a lifetime. When adding photos to Christmas cards, choose a photo that captures your family’s personality. There are 100’s of ways you could take a family photo. Commissioning professional shots around Christmastime is a good idea, however, for pictures of the whole family that you can show off on multi photo Christmas cards.
Despite a wealth of pictures, you probably don’t have many professionally photographed images that capture the whole family in their Sunday best. Portraits are a great way to have high-quality documentation of your kids’ growth every year. Our list of 100 Christmas photo ideas can help inspire some great family photos.
Make and Save Memories
As your family enjoys the Christmas season, complement professional portraits with your own photos and invest in prints of both to treasure. Putting a beautiful picture in a personalized picture frame can be a great gift to give to a loved one.
Christmas is about joy, but it’s also about the commemoration of joy. You can capture all of your kids’ best moments and share them with friends and family for years to come. When it comes to the holiday season, this is what it’s all about. Customize your multi photo Christmas cards to share the pictures that matter the most to you.
