Share Thank You Cards With #CreateThanks

Now more than ever, the essential workers who are keeping our world running and safe need a pick-me-up. Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the essential workers are our everyday heroes. The service of medical professionals, grocery store clerks, restaurant workers, police and firefighters, delivery people, sanitation workers, teachers working virtually, and more are deeply appreciated and deserve a standing ovation. Shutterfly wants to honor and recognize all who have stepped up to provide services that keep our society moving forward.

In an effort to make the essential workers’ lives brighter during this trying time, Shutterfly is encouraging everyone to express their appreciation with a thank you card. Design decorative thank you notes and drawings with your kids to send to hospitals or stick in your windows at home for the essential workers in your neighborhood to see. When your little one’s masterpiece is complete, share it with the hashtag #CreateThanks. Shutterfly will transform their creative works of art into thank you cards and posters and deliver them to essential organizations.

Reprint Event Cards With Our Date-Change Promise

Graduations, weddings, birthdays, and baby showers are just some of life’s most meaningful events and celebrations that are being affected by the coronavirus pandemic. While the events can still go on with virtual parties and ceremonies, making those adjustments can be stressful and costly. If you already sent out graduation invitations or save the date cards, it can be overwhelming thinking about what your next steps should be during this time of uncertainty.

For extra customization with your card’s date and message, use our editable sentiment cards. When customizing these cards, you can change the text from “save the date” to “We’ve changed our date!” and “details to follow.”

Buy One, Give One With Our Cloth Face Masks

Wearing face masks out in public has become the new normal. Shutterfly’s new soft and breathable reusable cloth face masks are made to keep you and your family healthy and safe. Designed with a pocket to hold any filter of your choice, these non-medical face masks are perfect for everyday use. Unlike a disposable single-use mask, a reusable face mask can be disinfected or washed after each wear, minimizing your exposure and optimizing your safety and ease — as well as the safety and ease of others.

Available in grey, teal, and pink as singles or purchase the variety pack of four to receive the additional heart pattern mask. These cloth masks are machine-washable, sustainable, and stylish. Our cloth face masks are designed to cover the mouth and nose to slow the spread of pathogens in public settings where social distancing is difficult to maintain. It has thoughtful features, such as comfortable, stretchy ear loops and double-layer fabric design with a filter opening (filter not included).

Shutterfly has partnered with Feeding America so that every time you buy a reusable face mask, you’re also supporting the donation of face masks to local essential workers in need. Our efforts to use our manufacturing resources don’t just allow for more people to buy face masks for personal use, it prevents them from purchasing the medical-grade materials our everyday heroes on the front lines require to do their jobs safely.
