What customers have to say about our Sympathy Cards

"After lots of research i decided to go with shutterfly to make my grandmothers memorial cards. I was very pleased when they arrived in the mail. When i opened up my orange package and removed the cards i was taken back at how lovely they were. The cards weren't thin paper they were excellent quality one like that of a Christmas or birthday card. The images where clear and the printed writing was clear unlike others i have viewed. I am pleased that family and friends can have these cards on their shelves and view them in a less depressing manor as those simple memorial cards
A continually happy customer"

"My Mom passed away and I wanted to make a nice card to let my family know. The Watercolor Botanicals design was perfect for I needed and when I selected the scalloped border it matched and really made the card special. I added a picture some dates and a few choice words and the end result was more than I had hoped for. With the Shutterfly tools this was a relatively easy task. I made twelve and the reception was so good that I had to order another twelve."

"The card I made following my Mother's passing exceeded all my hopes as to the quality and the speed with which it was processed and arrived. This was my first try at making a Shutterfly card, but it won't be my last!"
Show Your Compassion with Sympathy Cards
Grieving can be tough for any person. Often, it is very hard to know the right words to say when someone has suffered a loss. Whether you want to send comfort after the death of a friend or family member, reassure a loved one after an unexpected change in life or simply let someone know they are in your thoughts and prayers, Shutterfly is here to help you eloquently express your sympathy. If you're trying to find the right words to express your thoughts, you might be interested in our sympathy quotes and sayings as a good place to start.
Helping Loved Ones Deal with Loss
We are never prepared to lose the ones we love. When our friends or family have to deal with the unthinkable, it can be hard to know what to do. At the very least, a custom sympathy card can let them know that they are in your thoughts. You can create a card to help celebrate the life and joy of a person and to hopefully help your friend or family member work toward closure. If you are close, offer to lend an ear, run errands or cook meals. Babysitting or even just doing the laundry for someone directly affected by loss can be very helpful in some situations. Often, with grief, we don’t know who or how to ask for help. A card can remind someone that they are not alone.
Designing the Card
Shutterfly has plenty of options for designing custom cards. If it is appropriate, you can upload your favorite photograph to help celebrate the memories and life of the loved one who passed. If you prefer to select one of the designs, create your card that way. You can follow the suggested design guidelines or utilize your preferred fonts, colors and personalized condolence message to complete the card. Not sure exactly what you want to say? We have some tips for what to write in a sympathy card that can guide you through the thought process.
Celebrating a Life
Celebrating a life with a hearfelt gift will be remembered by the recepient for years to come. With so many options, choosing the perfect gift can be an overwhelming task. What should you send when someone dies? There are elegant ways to share photos of the ones we love and the ones we’ve lost. Shutterfly can turn your favorite images into beautifully framed prints. A family photo book is a great way to remind everyone how much joy can surround a person. A photo quilt might be a great way to help people keep the memories alive. Shutterfly can help turn your favorite memories into graceful memorials. Loss is always difficult, so use your favorite memories to keep remembering and keep the light on a little bit longer.
