Holiday Photo Cards {Giveaway}

Can you believe its that time of year again? The time to start thinking about holiday cards. Every year, we do photo cards because I absolutely LOVE them!  Since we are so far away from many of our family members, its nice to be able to show how the boy has change in the past year. 

This year I’m heading back to Shutterfly to print all of my Christmas cards! We loved our folded photo card from last year.
Merry Christmas.
We were very impressed when they arrived in the mail. The printing quality was much better than what you'd get from your 1-hour photo center. The paper stock was top notch, comparable to the greeting cards you'd buy in the store. The printing was very clean to. You never know what you're going to get when you design and order your cards online. We were prepared for cards that had that digital printing look–slightly pixelated, uneven solid colors, etc. But we were pleasantly surprised by their quality. I have no doubts you would be just as impressed with yours. The inside offered just enough space for a short Christmas letter. We were pleased with that aspect as well.

Here's what I love about Shutterfly's Christmas cards:
  • Unique options of folded cards, stationary cards (printed on premium cardstock), or the traditional photo card printed on photo paper. The stationary cards appear to be a very classy option.  Plus, there are a variety of sizes (5x7, 4x8 and 5x5) to choose from.

  • The variety of styles available is amazing. If you favor a more traditional look they've got you covered. Want something contemporary or maybe more playful. They have that too. All of the cards look very professional.

  1. We take family pictures in November, and then mail out our Christmas Cards the beginning of December.  This year, my husband is out of town and will not be home until December, so I guess we will be a little late (probably shouldn't take the "family" pictures without the husband!)!

  2. I send them out about two weeks before Christmas!  ~Mandie

  3. I have not sent out cards in the past, but i have been enspired this yr by shutterfly's hanukkah card selection. we are excited about taking pics for ours this yr.

  4. I usually wait to the last minute to send out cards...maybe I'll be better this year!

  5. We used Shutterfly last year for Christmas cards as well, and were very happy with the result! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  6. Every year I fill them out around Thanksgiving, and then get so proud of myself for being finished that I COMPLETELY forget to send them out until, like December 23rd. :)

  7. I aim for a couple weeks before Christmas, but that doesn't always happen.

  8. I usually send out my cards at the beginning of December.
