What customers have to say about our Sympathy Cards

January 20, 2019


"Fantastic collage. Great editing tools and fantastic final product. Sadly, the shipping costs were exhorbitant. Even priority mail is 2/3 less. Too bad. The quality of these cards and envelopes were extraordinary."

Meaningful template and easy to modify

"The template was solemn and appropriate."

Love creating custom cards

"I really appreciate the opportunity to create a custom pet sympathy card, gave it addresses stamped and mailed all in one fell swoop. I have sent this card twice this year already and recommend it to others."

Definitely a must

"I hope I don't have to buy this any time soon, but when I do, this is a must! Beautifully organized, perfect picture quality, and the cardstock material makes these cards well worth the purchase. Unfortunate circumstances, but this made everything just a little easier to deal with."

Great product

"They were easy to make and turned out great!"

Show Your Compassion with Sympathy Cards

Sending sympathy greeting cards can’t always make loss any easier, but it can help your loved ones know you’re there for them. With Shutterfly’s custom sympathy cards, you can add photos in memory of friends or family to help celebrate life. Shutterfly’s thinking-of-you cards can also serve as elegant, touching death announcement cards to let loved ones know when someone’s passed on. With a loving sympathy message, you can offer your condolences and remark how much someone has touched your life in our sympathy cards. By reaching out with personalized sympathy cards, you can let them know you're thinking of them and come together in remembrance of your loved ones.

Share Condolence Cards to Help 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. Create sympathy cards 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, use your sympathy notes to offer to lend an ear, run errands or cook meals. Beyond sending sympathy cards, babysitting or even just doing the laundry for someone directly affected by loss can be very helpful. Often, with grief, we don’t know who or how to ask for help. A condolence card can remind someone that they are not alone. If you're religious, fill your card with bible verses about loss to show sympathy. Also consider using one of our I love you quotes in your condolence cards.

Designing Memorial and Sympathy Cards

Shutterfly has plenty of options for designing custom sympathy cards. If it is appropriate, you can upload your favorite photograph to help celebrate the memories and life of the loved one who passed. With photos, you can create “in loving memory” cards or memorial cards that let everyone celebrate their life together, no matter where they are. Shutterfly’s sympathy cards offer flat, folded, and tri-fold sympathy cards so you can fit as many photos as you’d like. If you prefer to select a more simple design, you can also create your sympathy memorial cards that way. With Shutterfly, no matter what you choose, you can count on a respectful and memorable condolence card. Make sure your sympathy cards look exactly how you want by personalizing them with colors, beautiful fonts, and unique messages. You can include sweet sympathy words on the inside so they’re printed onto the card as well. Shutterfly’s sympathy cards can also be designed as pet sympathy cards to offer to your friends and family when an important member of their family has passed on. Memorialize your pet with personalized pet gifts to keep the memories alive.

Celebrating Life With Sympathy Gifts

Celebrating a life with heartfelt memorial gifts will be remembered by the recipient for years to come. With many options beyond sympathy cards, choosing the perfect sympathy gifts can be an overwhelming task. What should you send when someone dies? In addition to sympathy cards, 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 blanket 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.
