Have you gotten your Christmas cards ordered yet? I’m always a last minute gal but wanted to get a headstart and take advantage at a deal with Shutterfly so this wekend I ordered my Christmas cards. I was pleasantly surprised by how fast they came! I believe it was about 4 days and that was with regular shipping! So don’t worry, you still have time.
I try not to overthink photos for our Christmas cards and what I usually do is use photos from throughout the year. This year I wanted to do something a little more fun (without breaking my budget with a photographer) so I had Clever Tween wrap Clever Guy in holiday lights while Ty held the tinsel. I then filled the inside with photos from our year.
But if you do stress about family photos and cards don’t worry, Shutterfly has you covered with some tips about family photos and holiday cards on the Shutterfly Family Photo Site site:
Make it personal. Your holiday card may be the one time that you get to express your family’s true colors and truly connect with those you care about.
Add humor or personality to your holiday card. Style your family in their favorite band T-shirts or in something that gives a sneak peek into who you are.
Host a Family Photo Day. Organize a Family Photo Day with friends. Together, you can hire a photographer to take all your photos which can save on costs. This is a great way to have fun with your friends and get a Cardworthy™ Photo for your holiday card.
New 6×8 size cards are huge this year. Our largest size card lets you showcase your family in a big way. And there’s room to add your photos on the back too.
You can check out their best photo tips along with learning about their new iPhone app where you can upload photos directly from your phone to create the perfect card or gift from photos from everyday life at the Family Photo Site
The other night a few of us went to dinner and talked about holiday cards and got to see some Shutterfly cards in real life. I am simply in love with all of them like these ones:
As you can tell, I love all kinds of styles which is why I will be ordering another set of cards to go to friends!
Keep Up with Shutterfly!
