Each year I start to think about what photo we want to use for our Christmas cards. We have always done holiday photo cards (even pre-kids) so I like to start thinking about my favorite photos even during the Summer sometimes. This year, we think we’ll use a photo from a recent family photo shoot but other years I’ve really struggled to choose just one photo for the card. That is where Shutterfly comes to my rescue!
We have had an account with Shutterfly for a quite a few years now, so we can show our photos to friends and family and so we can print our pictures quick and easily. Last year though, I decided to try out their options for holiday cards, too and let me say I was not disappointed. Okay, that’s a lie. I was a little disappointed…that I couldn’t choose more then one design! There are way too many options and so many fabulous designs. If you aren’t a “holiday card” sender no worries because Shutterfly also has Thanksgiving and New Years Eve photo cards, too! Your choices really are endless.
Here’s just a few of my favorites for the 2010 Holiday Season…
Mod Ornaments 5×7 stationery card
If I was thinking more traditional, I’d do this one…
I really love this one because of how many photos you can have on one card!
Merry Moments 5×7 stationery card
I also love this idea, doing a photo for each month of the year!
Finally, I had to show you this one. If you love writing a letter about your year but hate taking the time to do it, this is the best of both Worlds. You can list your top 10 events of the year on your photo card. This is brilliant!
Top Ten Moments
If you haven’t used Shutterfly before, its time to try them out. Its a free service and its really the ideal way to save, organize and actually use your photos. The best part of all? Shutterfly sent me an email a few months ago assuring me that my photos were in safe keeping with them because not only do they have a back up of all of your photos, but they also have a back up to the back up!
