I love Shutterfly

"All of my birthday and holiday greetings come from Shutterfly. No more generic, cookie-cutter store-bought cards. And bonus, I can have them mailed directly to my out-of-town friends and family! No wonder that I have been told that my cards are the best; they're all personalized and make my loved ones feel special."

Turned out great

"I have ordered my Christmas cards from Shutterfly for the past several years. I have NEVER been disappointed by the way they turn out. I will continue to use them in the future. Also, an FYI, I have ordered several of their photo books (set up what I want) and they ALWAYS turn out beautiful."

Always use Shutterfly for my cards

"Had some photo cards made up to send to family. The quality of the paper stock used is great and always makes my pictures look Fab. Turn around time is fast, fast , fast! Thanks"

DIY Christmas Cards

Sending out holiday cards to everyone on your list can be one of the most exciting parts of getting ready for Christmas.

We let artists and designers upload their very own card designs. Once the card looks just the way you want it to, place your order.

Let your holiday greetings feature your latest masterpiece!

Creating the Perfect Holiday Card

There are many different sources from which artists and designers of all skill levels can draw inspiration. Consider some of these novel ideas when planning your Christmas and holiday cards this year:

• Drawing from historic sources, such as Victorian Christmas images or rustic pioneer celebrations
• An expressive color palette that goes beyond the standard red, green, and white often associated with Christmas
• Incorporating imagery from your regional landscape – coastlines, desert canyons, and cities all experience Christmas in their own beautiful ways
• Make animals or nature the centerpiece of your holiday art
• Make art together with siblings, children, and other family members to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece
• Christmas photo idea inspirations

Once your art has been completed, it will need to be digitized. If you created your image using computer software then simply save the file before uploading it into our card design template. If you made a physical work of art, it will need to be scanned or carefully photographed. For optimal printed results, a resolution of 300 dpi is recommended. After your art has been digitized, follow the on-screen prompts to add the image to the card template you have selected.

Sending a Masterpiece

Custom holiday cards are a thoughtful gift that expresses just how you feel. Let everyone on your mailing list enjoy your very own season’s greetings this year.
