It's that time of year again... the time of year when Shutterfly (my favorite photo site) comes out with its holiday card collection! Oh the excitement! If you're looking for a quality product for photo cards, I most definitely recommend you to Shutterfly's 2011 Christmas and Holiday cards. I used Shutterfly last year for my photo cards and I absolutely loved the design and complete package; the writing and sending out process was so much more enjoyable for me since I was very satisfied with the look and quality of my cards. I even framed one of the cards as a keepsake!
There are many beautiful cards to choose from, with different sizes and layouts available. It has been a tough decision again this year for me, but because I like vintage style and anything French, I have decided to go with the Blossoms of Joy holiday card! I plan on putting my baby girl on the front in a sepia colored photograph taken last week in New York.
Also, as a side note, if you are thinking about creating photo books this year as gifts for relatives or friends, I have used and continue to use Shutterfly almost exclusively for creating these fun books. I really like Shutterfly's Custom Path photobook section, as you can choose from already-designed layouts and it makes the creating process so much easier. I just finished our wedding photo book (our wedding was only 4 years ago) and I have begun a photo book to capture our two and a half years at seminary. I hope to eventually have several photo books that chronologically follow our life, instead of doing traditional photo albums. Photo books make it easier to organize and highlight your best photos, allow you to add captions and text, and they are a much prettier and intriguing coffee table addition.
So there you have it, for a second year in a row, I choose Shutterfly as my pick for Christmas photo cards!
And because Shutterfly is just so great, they have offered me (3) promotion coupon codes for my readers, each code being valid for 25 free photo cards! Please note that shipping is not included, but that still a pretty good steal. And just to encourage you, my blog is still small enough to where I don't usually get a high response when I host my Fru-Gal Giveaways, so you have an even better chance of winning with three prizes available.
