Review - Shutterfly ~ Always Bringing You the Best in Personalized Holiday Cards


ShutterflyCall me old-fashioned, but there is one Christmas tradition that I will never break, and that is the sending of Christmas cards to all my friends and family every year. Checking the mail during the month of December is so exciting for you never know whose card you will be receiving either!

That's why I'm glad that there is a company called Shutterfly, which takes the hassle out of ordering holiday photo cards and has such a wide variety of the most high-quality, beautiful designs you've ever seen! I have used

Shutterfly for many different kinds of items, such as memory books, online photo storage, etc., for they seem to offer everything you need to preserve your precious memories! Just look at some of my favorite photos which were printed on our family's Christmas cards over the last two years!

The 5" x 7" flat stationery cards from Shutterfly (which make perfect Christmas Photo Cards) retail for $1.29 each, but are currently on sale for $1.03 each.

I love looking back at the wonderful memory books I've made for Riley. The first time I made one of these for her using Shutterfly's super easy online design system, I had very low expectations, for surely this wouldn't look professional. I was absolutely astounded at how great the photo book turned out! I ranted and raved about it to anyone who would listen, and that very next week, I had my mom hooked into making them as well!

Shutterfly's free online photo storage also saved my precious memories when my hard drive failed unexpectedly on me. Because I diligently backed up my photos of Riley on Shutterfly's site to share with friends and family, I only lost about 2 weeks worth of pictures when my hard drive crashed, instead of six months' worth, if I hadn't used Shutterfly!

My family is scheduled to have our official Christmas photos taken soon and for the third year in a row, I will be using Shutterfly to create my custom holiday masterpiece. I always love to see how these cards come out! Every year, I am a highly satisfied customer and can't wait to get those Christmas wishes in the mail to everyone I love!

Disclosure:  I received 50 free cards from Shutterfly in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
