Holiday Cards- It’s Time! {Shutterfly Review}

Have you had your family pictures taken for the year? I know quite a few people, including myself procrastinate until right around the time Holiday cards start arriving your mailbox. In years past I’ve been late or haven’t done it at all- last year I went digital and just put my “card” on my blog but this year I’m determined to get it done before Christmas! I remember as a child my parent’s having a wall or door full of cards and I always loved looking at the different ones and seeing photos of family and friends I hadn’t seen in a while. The door of cards was like one of our holiday decorations, and to me the Christmas cards with photos are the best ones!

In the past I’ve done the flat holiday photo cards that you can have printed at Shutterfly on matte or glossy photo paper for a very reasonable price, but this year I have discovered that Shutterfly has beautiful folded cards. These cards are printed on premium cardstock available in 5x7 size. I definitely like the extra quality of the premium cardstock folded cards and love that you can add your photos to be printed onto them instead of having to separately print a photo and include it with your card. Theses are cards also allow enough room for a photo inside and your holiday letter.

I haven’t yet decided which ones I’ll be getting from Shutterly yet because they just have so many options. Here are a few of the cards I like. I’ve decide to just put the kids on the card this year because I don’t think we’ll get around to a family picture in time (I know you’d think with me being a photographer that it would happen but it just means that I’m too picky about my picture that I’ll never decide.) So I think I’m going to need a card with multiple picture options because I highly doubt just from past experience that I’ll get a really good photo of all the kids together but I’m still keeping my fingers crossed.
