One of my favorite things ever is sending snail mail. My family always makes fun of me because I send Halloween cards and even sometimes Easter cards too but my favorite cards to send are Christmas cards. I love sharing photos and life updates through our Christmas card every year. This year I partnered with Shutterfly to bring you our Christmas cards.
This post is sponsored by Shutterfly. The opinions and content are my own. I only work with brands I truly love, thank you for your support.
If you don’t know what Shutterfly is, it’s an online photo printing company. They print so much more than just photos. I’ve shared my kiddos photo books that I make yearly with Shutterfly. I also get a ton of unique gifts from them every year. From desktop plaques, calendars, ornaments and so much more. So, if you don’t have the app or haven’t visited their site you need to NOW. Especially, if you haven’t printed your Christmas cards yet, this is your friendly reminder to get on it haha!
Angela Huntsman was so gracious to offer her photo services for our Christmas card photos. She is a mom, wife and works full time. But, she is currently growing her photography business and let me tell you I don’t think she will have any trouble with that. Her photos are BEAUTIFUL. She is so sweet and patient. I also love that she has all of her pricing on her site so there isn’t any guessing on what you’ll pay. If you’re local make sure you check her website out here and her instagram here.
Okay, back to the card making. Shutterfly makes it so easy to create your Christmas card. They have hundreds of beautiful designs to chose from. Both, with and with out spots to place your photos. If you don’t have your photos professionally taken for Christmas cards, don’t worry! A tip I suggest is: put your kiddos in their Christmas pajamas snap a photo and voila you have the perfect photo for your Christmas card. Or, even just adding some of your favorite photos throughout the year works great too. Don’t forget to add your fur babies too!
Everything you need
Shutterfly also has everything you need to make card sending easy. They will print both return address and sender address on the cards. But, I personally like to order the return address labels. I ordered coordinating labels with the Christmas card, they are also neutral enough to use all year round so I ordered extra too. Also, make sure you check out what promotions Shutterfly is running when you buy yours. They ALWAYS have something going on; currently its 20 Free Cards with code TENFREE, free shipping on orders 49+ with SHIP49, and an extra 25% off with code TWENTYFIVE.
If you haven’t ordered your cards yet, don’t worry you still have time. But, make sure you do it soon to avoid paying extra shipping charges and rushing around close to Christmas. Another hack: if you order your cards too late, add them to Christmas gifts or send out a New Year’s Card. Want to see my Shutterfly Christmas card from two years ago? Check out this post here. I hope this post finds you well in this crazy holiday season. My goal is to help spread holiday cheer and Christmas cards with Shutterfly are a great way to do that.
