Since I've always had an excellent experience with the quality and speediness of the folks at Shutterfly, they will be getting my business this year. Seriously, compared to other online photo printing services I've used, the photos from Shutterfly are the way to go - the images are never pixelated, the color matches the photo on my computer screen, heck, even the envelopes the pics come in are sturdy and made to last.
There are about 700 different styles of Christmas cards to choose from - WOW! I'm really torn between the classic elegance of this card:
and the colorful, retro feel of this card:
They also have stationary cards in 5x5 format - something I've never seen before but would really stand out! Also 100+ options here. This design really caught my eye - it reminds me of a vinyl album cover!
And if you're also looking for last minute gift ideas for grandparents, think how much they would love a 2011 calendar full of photos of their favorite grandchildren! I would get this desktop version for my mom - she loves to show off pics of her grand-daughter to anyone and everyone at work.
Don't wait til the last minute! Shutterfly is offering free shipping on orders over $50 with the code SHIP50 and have tons of photo gifts on sale.
I'm off to start my Christmas letter...
