Christmas CardWell, this is where Shutterfly becomes an invaluable online photo service.

It’s great!” or “Wow, what a fantastic gift!” My father uses his coffee mug, covered with a collage of his grandson, proudly at work. My in-laws love to play cards, and they have a great deck of cards with their grandchild’s picture on it. I have send Christmas cards with my kids’ pictures for two years now, and this past March, Shutterfly was the only place I thought about using for my son’s birth announcements.
