"Our family and friends loved our 2012 holiday cards! Normally we go to JCPenny to have our holiday pictures taken, but due to a timing and procrastination issue, we would not have recieved the cards back in time to mail them out before Christmas, so we pulled out the camera and the tripod and starting snapping pictures of the family. We uploaded the pictrues on Tuesday, ordered the cards on Wednesday and had cards in our hands by Friday. Now that we know how professional the cards came out, we will be ordering future holiday and special occasion cards from Shutterfly more often."
"I create art so instead of a photo of me, I send out a photo of an art piece on my Christmas Cards. This year I have used 3 different companies to create cards....shutterfly, my publisher, and thru my Mac photo program. Shutterfly was the best because of clarity and quality of digital photo, you can create on the front AND the back of the card, the fonts for changing type are expansive and the heavy weight card stock is a premium. I also photographed and digitally enhanced photo's of my friends houses and created note cards with their homes on the front. Then will give them as Christmas gifts. Again the quality was superior and I am really pleased with the heavy weight card stock and lovely envelopes. I was also able to create return address labels with my design."
"These cards were beautiful and I received them very quickly. Thank you."
"I can't imagine trying to get through the holidays without Shutterfly! Christmas Cards to the masses, Thank you Cards for all those that do and give so much, Calendars to help family keep track of important dates while giving them the joy of seeing the family each month of the year! Thanks Shutterfly for making it so easy and affordable!"
"The design for this card is uniquely beautiful, crisp, clean, and classy. The colors are as shown, not as rich or dark as I prefer, but the brighter red was still pleasing and coordinates well with the muted green."
Staying healthy during the holiday season is hard to do, especially with the flu virus floating around. Plus, with everything on your to-do list, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and have a hard time enjoying your family and events. While it does take a little bit of effort on your end, staying healthy and happy during the holiday season is possible as long as you take a few key steps.
Since the holiday season and flu season are synonymous, make it a habit to wash your hands with soap and warm water several times a day. This will stop the spread of flu germs and hopefully keep you from getting sick. You should also try to stay active and eat healthily so that your body is prepared to fight off illness.
Stress can bog down the holiday spirit and leave you wishing it was already January. Try to manage your stress by taking time for yourself, staying organized and only doing as much as you can handle. If you can’t do something, don’t feel bad about saying no.
You can also reduce some of your stress by ordering holiday cards well before the holiday season gets underway. This will allow you to send your Christmas cards so that they get to your family and friends in time. With tons of templates that are easily customizable through Shutterfly, personalizing and sending out your holiday cards in the mail has never been easier or more convenient.
If you live in a colder climate, you probably get tired of throwing on boots, gloves, warm socks, a scarf, a coat and a hat every time you go outside, even if it’s just for a few minutes. While doing this can be a pain, staying dry and warm is an important part of protecting your health during the holidays.
Remember, this holiday season can be a healthy and happy one. You just have to make sure you’re making a conscious effort to protect your health, avoid the flu and manage your stress.
