2012 Holiday Cards
"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."

"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium.
I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."

"The printing is nice and clear--I was able to adjust my photos the way I wanted. If I do this again I'll look for heads that are about the same size--but that wasn't a problem of Shutterfly's. I'm happy with this card."

Love my Cards!
"I love the Panda cards and matching address labels. The quality is excellent and they both meet my expectations. I will certainly purchase more cards and labels in the future."

Creating Holiday Cheer With Children
Christmas is a holiday that everyone loves and perhaps no one enjoys the holiday season more than young children. In so many ways Christmas is a holiday made especially for children; after all, there are so many things involved with celebrating Christmas for kids to get excited about. From playing in the snow to decorating a Christmas tree as a family, there are countless ways to get your youngest family members involved in your personal household traditions. Kids can also help out with selecting, writing, and mailing holiday cards. This is a fun activity for parents and kids to do together. Kids of all ages can assist with this important task. Simply select some beautiful religious or wintery snowflake Christmas cards from Shutterfly, personalize your Christmas card with a special greeting, and have them delivered to your door.
Preparing Your Holiday Cards
Only a few supplies are required for parents and children to prepare Christmas cards together. In general, these are the items you will want to have on hand:
Your list of Christmas card recipients and their addresses. Children can help prepare this list by naming friends and relatives.
Good pens for writing. Little kids might enjoy using colored pencils or rubber stamps to add their own colorful touches.
A clean table. Spills and crumbs can damage your nice Christmas cards. Laying down a sheet of newspaper can help keep everything clean.
A roll of stamps. Be sure to have several extra stamps available in case you remember additional recipients at the last minute.
A small box. Collect all your finished cards into one place so they can all go into the mailbox at the same time.
A Cozy Family Tradition
Addressing Christmas cards properly can be even more fun with the help of some festive music, your favorite holiday beverage, and even a few Christmas cookies. In no time, all of your holiday mailing will be complete and you can relax knowing that your friends and relatives will soon be receiving their cards.
