It’s that time again! Time to start thinking about holiday cards so that you have time to find just the right one to send! Shutterfly has introduced their 2013 holiday card collection! They have some awesome cards with lots of ways to personalize them. I’ve been looking and looking at them and it is really hard to choose favorites because I pretty much like them all…. but I will share a few of the ones I like the most and share with you what I like most about them!
The first one I want to show you is the Bokeh Bubbles Christmas Card.
It is a beautiful flat stationery card that you can personalize with up to 11 photos! You can add your own greeting and everyone’s name to it. It is 6″ x 8″. It is printed on signature card stock and oriented in the portrait style. I like this one because you can add so many photos to it. I have 6 children and these types of cards make it easier for me to add an individual picture of each of them if I want to.
Next I like the Snowflake Sophisticate Christmas Card.
As you can see, this adorable card comes in your choice of two color schemes. You can choose between a 6″ x 8″ or 5″ x 7″ flat stationery card or a 5″ x 7″ folded card. The flat stationery cards come in a matte finish, but you have a choice of matte or glossy in the folded card. You can choose the landscape or portrait orientation with any of the 3 card size choices. Each card can be personalized with 1 – 4 photos. Again you can personalize it with your own greeting and everyone’s names! I like this one because of the simplicity of the design. If I decide to order this one, I think I would prefer to stay with one nice family portrait for the cover of it.
My next choice would be the Wrapped In Burlap Holiday Card.
I love the country look of this card! It can be personalized with up to 8 photos. It is a 6″ x 8″ flat stationery card. The card is designed in the landscape orientation. I love the cards that are not so traditional but still have the Christmas feel!
Shutterfly has a whopping 349 holiday card designs to choose from! I am sure that nearly anyone can find something they love with a selection like that!
As if the holiday card collection weren’t enough, they also have an awesome photo gift collection as well. Shutterfly has some new arrivals just in time for the holiday season! Below are a few of their new arrivals, but please check out their website to see the MANY photo gifts that they offer!
One of their new arrivals is the iPad case! They are available in 12 different designs with many different personalization options. They are designed to fit all iPad versions except for iPad minis. The case can be customized with your own photos and text. They are folio designed cases made to protect both the front and the back of the iPad. The spine of each one is reinforced to help make it stronger. They are each finished with a black or red spine and back. The interior is lined with micro suede.
My personal favorite of their new arrivals it the Wood Wall Art. It is available in multiple sizes from 8″ x 10 to 24″ x 36″. There are 9 design options available to be personalized to fit your preferences. The wood grain shows through the photo. There are grooves carved into the back to make it easy to hang. These look awesome and would be very durable and are sure to stand the test of time!
