"I used to love ordering coffee mugs from Shutterfly. Theirs were the best because they centered the photos correctly leaving a small border above each photo and an equal sized border below each photos. Recently I've been ordering a number of coffee mugs from companies other than Shutterfly because this year Shutterfy made it impossible for me to order what some of the other companies call a "simple wrap around mug" I like to create my own design using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I used to order a lot of mugs from Shutterfly but now the only plain mugs they sell are for three photos. I can no longer get my single photo wrapped around a mug. The only mugs I can order now from Shutterfly are copies of old designs from 2013 because they won't let me upload a single new photo and put it on a plain mug. The 15 oz mugs from other companies had the photos printed too high with too large of a white border below the photos. The 11oz mugs had the photos cropped unevenly"
"Again, Shutterfly, I'm so impressed by the amazing products you offer and help me create. This photo coffee mug I just received is gorgeous! Crystal-clear photo quality and color. I've became a shutterfly-addict this past year, and never have been disappointed. My photos have been transformed into amazing pieces of art, books, magnets, posters, cups, pillows, the ideas are endless with all the options. And they make fabulous gifts to give, always great quality and yet so personal & meaningful. I ordered this cup in standard white, using the collage layout. It looks so nice and has quickly became the favorite coffee cup to grab at home or work. I'm intrigued to try the colored mugs as well, to really give them that extra pop for some holiday gifts. Love it!"
"The mug I created was easy to design. It didn't take long once I decided on my design. The hard part design wise was that it's quite difficult to find a blank canvas to work with. While I'm sure that for some the preconceived designs work wonderfully but I didn't want hearts or collages or cute sayings across my cup. I just wanted a blank canvas which was difficult to find. Ordering was not as easy as I would like as I sifted through so many offers to add this item or that. I also had a discount code that I couldn't seem to make work and Customer service was very little help. However when it arrived at my home right on schedule it was absolutely gorgeous. I am very impressed with the quality. It's unlikely that I will ever drink from this cup mainly because it looks so doggone terrific on my shelf."
"So good to drink coffee in the mornings from the mug, that have the pictures of our best family moments hiking outside. The colors are good and very saturated, just remeber - the printed picture would be darker, so if there are some black or dark colors it could help to make the picture lighter before printing it to the mug."
"The mug looks really cool and it was delivered pretty fast. Thanks shutterfly."
Mornings are full of routines for many families. From reading the news to brewing a pot of coffee, you likely have a few tasks you do each day to start off on the right foot. These habits can help you feel calm and collected during the workweek or relaxed and peaceful on holidays and weekends. Photo mugs are perfect for sipping your morning beverage and can become a fun way to remember family, friends and special events.
In our modern-day society, living away from extended family is common. Young adults leave home for college, often driving across the country to attend their chosen learning institution. Career choices, job transfers and living costs each affect your choice of where to live. With advances in technology it’s easier than ever to keep in touch with friends and relatives that live in different cities.
Some methods of contact work well for the informal exchange of information, while others are more meaningful. Consider using a combination of approaches to stay connected with those special people in your life, including
While you can’t be expected to drop in monthly on an aunt living across the country, you can certainly get in touch with her before your holiday trip to plan a day to meet up for lunch. Send loving grandparents birthday invitations or other special correspondences, even if you are sure they won’t be able to make it. Inviting and including are integral steps toward increasing family connection.
With young kids around, it is especially important to reach out to grandparents so that both sides feel comfortable with one another when they are able to get together. Keep relatives informed of major milestones and awards using video chat. Your efforts will pay off with a close relationship, no matter how far away those special people may reside.
