Since starting our family, I've found that some of the best gifts have been photo gifts -- what grandparent wouldn't want more pictures of their grandchild around?!? I've personally utilized several companies to either print digital pictures or make photo gifts and have found Shutterfly to be one that I really enjoy using.
It's very easy to set up an account and begin any project. The upload time has never frustrated me, and there are many options for designs. Personally I've created Photo Christmas Cards, which were definitely a hit with the recipients! I've also made several Thank You Cards, personalizing with fun pictures; some of those cards allowed me to change the captions on the front of the card, for even more personalization, and several designs will allow you to choose a layout on the inside to include more pictures! There are also templates for Party Invitations -- just take your pick! The quality of the cards are outstanding, and often, the delivery time is true. (Only once out of about five times have I had problems with shipping -- I ordered Valentines which somehow got lost somewhere. So I contacted Shutterfly, and they redid my order; however, I received those after Valentine's Day, which was a little disappointing for me to send belated Valentines.)
Overall, I'm very pleased with Shutterfly and its products. They are a very generous company, and if you haven't done so, you can get 3 free greetings cards "to celebrate summer" with code SUMMERCARDS, but that expires tomorrow....Sept. 1.
