"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,"

We LOVE these photo coffee mugs!
"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!"

"Actually, a coupon special caused me to try Shutterfly, but the product was so nice that I will definitely use this site
again. Both the photos and the text were easy to work with and re-arrange until they were just right, and the finished mug looked exactly like the preview. Nice job!"

great picture mug
"I ordered this mug with a code for a free mug, only had to pay shipping. It was awesome and turned out great. Used a funny picture of a family memeber and will be a great gag gift this year."
From selfies to photo shoots, snapshots to portraits, modern life is filled with images. Much of today’s record keeping is done with photos and there are increasing options for viewing, displaying and enjoying your favorite images. Ceramic mugs are the perfect canvas for displaying and enjoying those images that make your life special. They also make great personalized gifts and can be customized to fit both formal and informal occasions. Doting grandparents and friends from your last group vacation will love enjoying their new photo memorabilia.
Preserving Your Pictures
Most people have a camera in their pocket and with continually-improving technology, you can take great photos of any event with your phone. It is important to store and back up your favorite shots properly, but it doesn’t have to be time consuming.
Many websites and apps offer free storage or a large capacity for holding copies of those beloved snapshots. Look for programs that automatically check for new pictures and then back them up in the background. If you like to manually download your photos to a computer or other storage device, set a reminder alarm to be sure you complete this important task often.
It is always a good idea to keep two copies of each picture in case of a digital emergency. Store these backups in separate locations to safeguard your special images. Physical storage devices, like portable hard drives, are simple to connect to a computer via a USB cable and make a great spot to deposit your digital content for safekeeping.
The Perfect Thank You Gift
You likely want to showcase some of your recent images from vacation, parties and more. Displaying pictures in your home can be formal with framless canvas prints or more laid-back with ceramic mugs or personalized pillows. Photo books make the perfect thank you gift for friends or family you may have vacationed with. Be sure to order an extra for your house and enjoy reminiscing for years to come.
