"Well after reading the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. We were trying to print a picture of a quilt my mom made before she passed away so everyone in the family could have a memory of her beautiful quilting. (since only 1 person gets the quilt!). We decided to get the plain fleece blanket because what was most important was the clarity of the picture not the fuzziness of the blanket. The fleece is a lightweight non fuzzy fleece. BUT some people have said they were super cheap or very light etc. etc. I found ours to be a nice weight for a fleece blanket about a pound for the 50x60. It has very nice folded over and sewed binding about an inch wide not the edge binding you see on a lot of cheap fleece in the stores. It is super soft and very pliable. Some people described it as "heavy felt". Well FELT is very stiff and not soft and pliable so I would disagree. BUT the fleece is not the fuzzy fleece. We were very happy with the photo on the fleece. We used a professional camera to take a picture of the quilt and used a high quality to upload. If you are expecting to take a picture with your phone and upload it and be perfect you will be disappointed. The details on the quilt are easily seen and appreciated even the writing on the embroidery. The blue mark at the bottom is not a defect I marked through the name at the bottom on the picture I took just didn't want my mom's name plastered on the internet for all to see. This is a photo with it spread out on our living room sofa."
"I received my blanket shipment yesterday from Shutterfly. I am so happy with the softness of the Plush Fleece and the quality of the pictures. I am super excited to see the reactions of my 2 teenage daughters on Christmas morning with their blankets. I made another one to give to my mom on her birthday right after Christmas. She will be super happy since it has pictures of my daughters and my nephew on different occasions since 2000. Thank you Shutterfly for the quality and the great deals you ran during this Christmas season. I do suggest that if anyone is debating between the Fleece and the Plush Fleece go with the Plush Fleece if your person wants to snuggle with it. My personal opinion. The Fleece is good but the Plush Fleece is terrific."
"My mom loved her blanket of family photos and now my brother wants one, too!"
"We wanted to do a blanket, but only had low quality pictures off of facebook. This blanket turned out fantastic! All of the pictures were crisp and clear. We ordered the 60x80 and it is huge! Exactly what we were looking for."
"LOVE IT! Photos look amazing just be prepared that they must be a high enough resolution to be used so many of my pictures were rejected as I was creating the blanket."
