Thinking Ahead: Christmas Card Design Inspiration (Shutterfly Blogger Promo)
Last Christmas, I had the pleasure of participating in a Blogger Christmas Card Promo from Shutterfly and I'm excited to share some designs with you again this year too. And guess what? If you're a blogger, you can also sign up for the program and receive 25 free cards if your blog is chosen...details are here.
I am a big, big Shutterfly fan. I think that the selection of holiday photo cards pretty much speaks for itself!
I feel like I could spend an hour or so just taking notes on the photographs featured so I know exactly how I want to photograph my girls this year. I'm thinking close-ups, and black and white shots since I don't have their Christmas dresses picked out yet.
The site is a wonderful resource for Christmas gifts: ornaments, personalized throws, jewelry, you name it---can all be customized with your favorite photos.
I receive Shutterfly emails a couple of times a week, and I am always able to score a deal on photo calendars. These make excellent gifts for grandparents and great-grandparents. T's grandparents kept theirs on the coffee table and passed it around to visitors because they liked it so much. My Nannie, who is 100, doesn't really want or need anything...but she enjoys flipping through her calendar and seeing the pictures of my girls.
One of these days, I will get my act together enough to throw a real Christmas party! Shutterfly has an entire shop devoted to beautifully designed Christmas invitations. How sweet (pun intended) is this Cookie Swap invite?
In short, I was more than pleased with our Christmas Card order last year. I had never ordered photo cards before, and Shutterfly made me a believer! Quality paper, quick delivery, nice color...it was all good. I am a happy Shutterfly customer, and will continue to place orders with them as long as they continue to deliver high quality photo products!
Do you order photo Christmas cards, or do you like traditional cards?
*Shutterfly did not pay me to write this review, although they did give me a promotional code for 25 free cards. As always, my opinions are my own!
