When it comes to designing our holiday cards each year, I’m not sure which is more difficult – choosing the family photo or the card design. It seems like we never have a picture where all three of us look good. Last year I ended up choosing a card from Shutterfly that allowed me to put pictures into holiday ornaments so I could crop each one of us out of the best picture from the year. This year I was really hoping to get a great family picture when we were at Disney World but Elizabeth was just not in the mood to get her picture taken so that didn’t even come close to happening.
Shutterfly doesn’t make choosing the card design any easier since they have so many different designs to choose from. I love that they offer holiday cards that work for various winter holidays as well specific Christmas cards. While the main assortment may be overwhelming, Shutterfly allows you to narrow down your options by selecting the card size, number of photos, and style of card that you are looking for.
The process of creating a photo card on Shutterfly is easy as well. You can upload various pictures into your account and then play with the photos, layout, and text on your card until you get it just the way you want it. The cards will come looking just as they are pictured on the website.
Shutterfly offers more than just holiday cards though. They also have various invitations, thank you cards, and photo gifts that can be customized for your special occasions. We used Shutterfly for Elizabeth’s birth announcements three years ago and my mother in law commented that she had never seen a card with multiple pictures like the one we chose. With such a variety of options, I think it would be hard for someone to not find at least one card they like on Shutterfly!
