"I always order our Christmas cards through Shutterfly but was so excited to see a Christmas card that doubles as an ornament. The cards are on very thick cardstock and are shaped like snowflakes. You can choose a picture and wording for both the front and the back. The cards come with a hole punched in the top of the card as well as gray ribbons to place through that hole for hanging the ornament/card. The size of the card is 6x6 I believe. If you get the square envelopes it will cost extra postage to mail them. Shutterfly gives you the option of a rectangle envelope which will cost just the regular price to mail so just be sure to click on that option when it comes to the envelope part of the editing. One thing I love about Shutterfly is that their color calibration on their photos cards and other items are always nice and consistent which I haven't found to be the case with other companies. Several times during the Christmas season Shutterfly offers 10 free cards when you only have to pay shipping. I designed my card ahead of time so that I am able to get free cards each time they are offered. All in all a great product!"
"We chose this card due to the fact that it did not look like a traditional holiday card. Additionally, the year was quite eventful for us; and, as a result, we had several pictures we wanted to include to help recap the year. This particular card enabled us to include six photos on the front and one photo on the back. (I think you can use up to eight photos on the front though.) Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of cropping when placing photos on the front of the card. This is because the template for the holiday card won't accept photos done in landscape format (ie, rectangular photos) but it is easy to use the photo editing feature in Shutterfly to do the cropping. Also note that any text on your chosen photos probably won't be readable on the printed card. Thus, plan to put your captions elsewhere. There's also room on the front of the card for a special message. My suggestion here is to go to a smaller sized font as the default size will not allow you to say much on this part of the card. Another key feature of this card - which is an improvement from previous years - is that you are able to include one photo on the back. There's also a fairly large text box here as well and this is the area where we placed a more detailed message along with captions for photos shown on the front of the card. Overall we were pleased with the entire "creative" process. Designing the card was simple; the Shutterfly service was fast; the price was right; the card stock was high quality; and we were all happy with the end result."
"I wanted to take advantage of Shutterfly's Christmas in summer promotion but mostly I wanted to tell our friends where we had been this summer. Of course and as usual, I found the perfect card -- blurred edges on the front and blank on the inside. They were perfect & I had so much fun filling them out! Love, love, love Shutterfly -- my cards always exceed my expectations."
"I will use Shutterfly next year for Xmas Cards. Their Quality, and service was Excellent. Next year I will explore their Services more deeply, now that they have earned my trust!!"
"I really like the ability to personalize the ornament in this card. Great extra touch."
The main point of sending out Christmas cards to your friends and family members is often to simply wish them a Merry Christmas and let them know you were thinking of them. However, a picture and a “Happy Holidays” written on the front is sometimes not enough for certain people. When you have a story to tell, trifold Christmas cards are the perfect option, and Shutterfly is available to help you make ideal cards that are impossible to duplicate. If you have additional photos, Shutterfly creates excellent quarterfolded Christmas Cards.
Every year brings exciting new changes and accomplishments. Perhaps you got a big promotion at work or maybe your family welcomed a new addition this year. With trifold cards, you have plenty of space for both text and pictures so that you never feel as though you are running low on space to give all the details. A few quick updates will make the people in your life know exactly how your life is going, and they may even send a card back congratulating you on everything you achieved.
The other great aspect of trifold Christmas cards is the fact that you never have to decide which photos are used and which are not. With three separate faces on the card, you can upload several different images. This means you can upload a picture of the entire family along with individual portraits. You can have one serious photo and then a bunch of silly photos where everyone is making faces at the camera. The opportunities are truly endless, and you are only limited by your imagination.
A trifold card is the perfect way to wish the people you love a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. You can even place one of these cards over your home’s fireplace so that guests who come over can take a gander at a wonderful piece of art.
