Many of you know I’m a fan of photo cards. I love to send them and receive them. Most of my cards have come from Shutterfly. It is truly my pleasure to share my very positive experiences with you in return for 25 free photo cards.
My all-time favorite Shutterfly project/product is the photo mug I made of the girls last year. It’s a little bittersweet because that is a two-eyed Sis, but it’s PANK and Gretchen is also featured. I actually ordered a few extra earlier this year… just in case. MJ got one for Mother’s Day, and if by any odd chance you need your own fur-girl mug, say so in the comments and we’ll work something out.
I also did special Valentines, which both of our vets still have up on their bulletin boards, thanking select people for their support during what was perhaps the most difficult period of our lives to date. Shutterfly… it isn’t just for Christmas cards!
Of course, I *HAVE* ordered holiday cards from them too. I like a matte finish for some reason… What do you prefer?
In the end, it usually comes down to what card template works best with the photos I want to use. Since I want a portrait done… hem. Yeah. Not yet!!
Thankful Thursday? Well, I’m thankful for businesses like Shutterfly, with quality products, fast turn-around, and honestly… those free cards. Hem. (But it works! I wouldn’t have blogged about where I do most of my online photo cards otherwise… Good marketing, Shutterfly!)
And yes… I guess I’m beginning to think about Christmas. I’ve ordered a gift or two, and I suppose I need to call and arrange for photos to be taken ASAP… I’m even doing some Christmas knitting – you know, that red mohair cardigan I want to have done to wear for the holidays?
Are you starting to think holiday thoughts? What kinds of business and/or services are you thankful for as you start planning for the holidays?
