Shutterfly *Review

Recognize the Orange Box.. Shutterfly!
Making our life easier and full of beautiful photographs! I tend to not print out photos as much as I used to since they are all 'stored' on the computer. I need to do better at printing them out for the future generations though and I am so excited to work with Shutterfly in doing so.
In June my oldest graduated from our homeschool. We had to figure out our own graduation announcements and thank you cards so I turned to Shutterfly for help.
The design component of the process is super easy! The hard part was choosing which ones we liked best!

Celebrate Our Son Graduation Announcements allowed me to utilize the photos from the photographer that I bought the rights too, without having to pay for the outlandish prices that photographers charge for announcements. It was a winning combination! I LOVED these announcements as I was able to customize them to our son. I love that they were printed directly on the cardstock, with a matte finish. These are wonderful enough to have framed. It also saved me having to purchase wallets for each of the announcements we sent out. They were a flat 5 by 7 made from heavy weight cardstock for durability and longevity.

 Though my son was hesitant about Thank You cards with his photo, I thought they were fun and since I had the picture, Why not?
These Thank You cards again have the photo in a matte finish with the Thank you across the bottom. They are a 3 by 5 folded card with envelopes included. Because these aren't graduation specific he is able to use the extra's for gifts in the future.

 Coffee mugs for the graduate are a must! They are more than likely loving to drink coffee, tea or hot cocoa at least and there is nothing more 'adult' feeling than having your own mug. What about a mug with 'your mug shot' on it! This comes packaged wonderfully to prevent breaking!

We chose the Graduation Masculine Mug to be specific to the year 2013. No doubt whose mug this is! What a fun celebration reminder. I think I will be getting all of the kids mugs with their photo on it. There wouldn't be any need to figure out which cup belongs to whom!

So I managed to get all of the announcements and thank you cards ordered and set up. It was his job however to get them all sent out!

Be sure to check out Shutterfly for all of your photo processing, photo books, stationary, calendars and more! Their prices are fantastic and they are always having special offers to take advantage of.
