Plannning the Crunchy Family Holiday Cards with Shutterfly.

Now that I have my beloved DSLR I can finally send out some respectable holiday cards to our family and friends. The holidays are a crazy time for everyone and I definitely don't have time or the money (grrr student budget) to pay for professional family portraits. I have used Shutterfly in the past to create photo books for grandparents.

Everyone raves about the quality so I thought I would give their cards a try.

I have many nice pictures of the kids so I though Thanksgiving cards like the one below would be cute.

I like Shutterfly's variety and the ease of use of the website. One of the best parts is the low resolution file alert. In the past when creating photo books and uploading a bunch of pictures at once a few low resolution files slipped in accidentally. Shutterfly's system will let you know immediately that your product won't look its best at the size or resolution you chose.

It saved me money and aggravation. After spending my time looking for the perfect pictures for holiday gifts the last thing I want to do is use grainy or fuzzy pictures. If you haven't used Shutterfly in the past you should consider them this year. Right now they are offering free shipping over $30 and are having a huge up to 50% off sale.

Happy shopping!
