Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner. Now that I have kids, I try really hard to plan as far ahead as possible when it comes to shopping, getting our holiday pictures taken and ordering my Christmas cards (notice I said try ;-)). One of my favorite places to order Christmas cards is Shutterfly. They have a great variety and their prices are reasonable – and they offer matte finish cards, something that I love. I am also a big fan of the quality of their cards – not to mention their prints and photo books…I could go on and on!
Recently I was asked to browse Shutterfly’s 2010 Holiday Cards and choose three of my favorites. I accepted this challenge because I figured it would force me to get started now – rather than wait until later. :-)
The first card that I love is the one shown at the top of this post – 5×7 Stationary Card Spot the Snowflakes. I tend to favor contemporary cards, and this one fits the bill. I like that I can include two pictures – one of my two daughters alone, and one of our entire family. I also love the bright colors and the use of pink in the card – since we are a family full of girls (my poor husband!) :-)
The second card was the 4×8 Photo Card – Gifted Tag. I love that the main focus of this card is the photo. That is important to me because Christmas is one of the few times a year that I get pictures of my kids out to our extended family. The price is also great on this one – running $0.40-0.69 per card depending on the quantity that you order.
And while these are more expensive, I adore these folded 5×7 cards – Snowflake Magic. They are perfect if you like to write notes in your holiday cards, and you can easily tuck additional prints or wallet photos in this card.
Honestly it was difficult to pick only three cards that I loved…there are so many beautiful ones to choose from! I really think it depends on the picture(s) that you plan to use as to which holiday card is perfect for you – something that you should have no problem with since Shutterfly offers such a wide variety.
