What customers have to say about our Fleece Photo Blankets

Another Satisfied Fleece Blanket Customer
"I ordered two (2) Fleece Photo Blankets recently as Christmas presents for my nieces.
They came out BEAUTIFULLY.
I had my doubts, especially since the photos I used were not (initially) of the highest resolution, but they came out looking great. Here are a few more observations and tips:
What I ordered:
- Two (2) 60x80 Fleece Photo Blankets with 8 images on each.
- I chose the color black, with a white monogram initial in the center of each.
- Excellent photo fidelity.
- Beautiful vibrant colors.
- Extremely fast turnaround (it took less than a week from the time I placed my order to when they arrived via FedEx!)
- The blankets themselves are fine... but not anything you would buy without the photos on them. The fleece is not the type you normally wear as outerwear, i.e., it has no "tufts", but this is of course so the photos themselves will print better, i.e., they obviously need a flat surface.
- The color you choose is only on the photo side of the blanket. The other side is white.
- If you're worried about photo resolution, here are a few things to know. I literally used a few wallet-sized printed photos, and they came out fine. The trick is to "up" the resolution, either via the scanning process (to make them digital) or via a photo manipulation program like Photoshop Elements (which is what I used). You would think that turning a 300K photo into a 10M photo wouldn't work... but it did. The photos of my nieces turned out very nice indeed when "blanket-sized".
- Of course, photos taken with a digital camera with a decent number of megapixels will already be of high enough resolution, so you'll be good to go.
- When you upload the photos and insert them into the blanket template of your choosing, Shutterfly will let you know if the resolution is big enough. If it's not, there will be a red "X" on the photo.
- BTW, when I came online to write this review, I found out that the same blankets I bought last week were now on sale "

Fleece Photo Blankets
"My wife and I just received 2 different Fleece Photo Blankets on March 7, 2014 and we are VERY pleased with the HIGH quality of both blankets. The picture images are very clear, and carefully centered on the blankets. Our first order with Shutterfly (also a Fleece Photo Blanket) was approx. 1 year ago and it was also EXCELLENT quality. Thank you Shutterfly."

Love Love Love It!!
"I've been wanting to purchase this for the past couple of years, but never did, because I was afraid I would spend all that money, for something that wouldn't come out looking right. But I was soooo wrong. I just recently bought two of these as Christmas gifts, one for my mom & one for my mother-in-law! After ordering, I was sitting here praying that it would come out okay. Well.. when I got the package and opened it, I was so excited! They came out AMAZING! I honestly wanted to keep it for myself of how great they came out! Way better than I could have ever imagined! Needless to say, I am highly impressed with Shutterfly, and will definitely order from them again! I've already ordered magnets, coffee cups, calendars, && of course, the blankets! Everything AMAZING! The blankets are super soft. The only thing I could say is.. you do get the color of your choice, but the back side of the blanket isn't.. it was white. Which doesn't bother me at all, but it may others. But if you are hesitate about buying this product, don't be.. this is a great choice!"
