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."

"I typically do not write reviews on products, but this blanket was just outstanding. I received a great deal with the current promo and I ordered the largest size 60x80. This blanket is HUGE it took two of us to hold it up so I could see the full size. Picture quality was so amazing, clear and perfect. I put all my pictures in black and white and it went exceptionally well with the plaid. Amazing gift for my hubby."

Absolutely LOVE this fleece blanket!
"I created and purchased a "Gallery of Six" Fleece Photo Blanket as a Hanukkah gift for my parents and am so incredibly thrilled with it, I just had to leave a review. First of all, the creation process was very easy! In fact, the hardest part was choosing 6 picture of our dog to include (we have about 5,000 of him so narrowing it down was a challenge!). Once I finished and checked out, it only took about 1 week to ship. I was so excited to open the box and check it out and was very impressed with the quality of the blanket itself and how high rez and sharp the images came out. The fleece material is soft and does not appear to be static-y. The images are so colorful, bright and crisp. The blanket was the most talked about gift of the night and will forever be cherished by my family. Now we get to cuddle with our dog in more ways than one!"
