"The memorial cards arrived on time. They were better than expected. Quality was top notch. Super satisfied with what I ordered."
"When I first received these, I was disappointed to find there was a printing smudge on the back of each card. I had already rushed the order for my father's memorial. I contacted customer service and they understood the importance of having these cards done correctly in time for this event. They got the cards done and shipped out overnight the next day. I'm very impressed with how this was handled and appreciate the lengths Shutterfly went to make it right. The cards turned out beautiful and are of great quality. Thank you."
"I forgot to pick up a sympathy card while I was out this weekend & honesty the last time I visited a hallmark store it took forever to find just the right card. I logged on found the sympathy section. Found a card with initially what I wanted to say then filled in the rest. Added a personal touch photo, dug up the address, submitted & it was mailed to the person. The cost was less than if I had gone to the store, was annoyed for 30 mins trying to find the perfect card & then realizing I didn't have a stamp. My forgetfulness was actually for the best this time!"
"When my mom passed away, I used a beautiful watercolor botanical card from Shutterfly to make her In Memoriam card to send to family and friends. So beautiful, so touching! In my haste, I made an error in dates on the card which was caught by the Shutterfly staff. They contacted me and helped me to correct it. What a wonderful, thoughtful thing on their part! I will always appreciate their help in a difficult time for me. More than pleased with the resulting cards! Thanks to you, Shutterfly!"
"The cards came to me exactly how I ordered them. Great work!"
