"I ordered these cards to use as the memorial cards for my grandfather's memorial services. They were beautiful and so special compared to the generic memorial cards provided by funeral homes and churches. A truly elegant touch. Family and friends were all very happy to have this special keepsake."
"I ordered this product for my Grandma's service they were beautiful and everyone commented on how beautifully done they were. I like the fact that you could design the back yourself."
"These memorial cards are quite large (but don't require extra postage) and the paper quality is very good. I didn't choose the matte finish, I prefer the glossier look and it was exactly what I wanted. The colors are good and photos printed clearly."
"This was a perfect card to use for my late step father. The quality was very nice and the shipping was fast as we needed it on short notice. Would highly recommend!"
"The product was absolutely amazing when we received it. The reason that we needed the card was an extremely difficult one, but the card was done so beautifully, so it made keeping our loved ones memory alive that much more beautiful. I would definitely order from Shutterfly again because all of their products have been nothing short of amazing."
