Shutterfly holiday cards

I heard from our other wedding photographer that we should be receiving her disk of photos this weekend -- they're almost here! I basically wanted the wedding in order to have photos to show our eventual kids, so I'm so excited that this final holdover from the wedding festivities is almost in my mailbox.

I've been thinking about what to do with them, since we didn't buy a print package, just the rights to the photos. The obvious answer: holiday photo cards! My Christmas card list basically just doubled, with the addition of Peanut's family, and what better way to say happy holidays than with a picture to remind people of the wonderful day they shared with us, or to give people who weren't able to make it a glimpse of what it looked like. I always send Christmas cards, but my life is not quite interesting enough to warrant a Christmas newsletter. I think a photo card of our first Christmas as a baby family is perfect.

I'll be ordering from Shutterfly -- they have cards but also photo gifts -- the keepsake box is a particular favorite of mine, as is the puzzle. They also have regular photo ordering services (and you can pick photos up at Walgreens, Target, and CVS!!) which is perfect for sharing them with everyone else who wants to order photos as well.

Full disclosure: this is a submission for the 50 free holiday card promotion from Shutterfly, but I will be using Shutterfly for my wedding photo orders.

  1. What a great idea! I'm in the same boat... waiting for the wedding pics to come in and thinking about holiday cards. I'm going to check out shutterfly and see if I can kill two birds with one stone. Thanks :)
