Birth Announcement

Here it is! This was my 1st time ordering from Shutterfly and I have mixed reviews. They had excellent customer service, great selection and fast shipping. The quality of the paper (cardstock) was very good. They offer a lot of discounts: I got 20% off, free shipping and $20 off. The only thing I didn't like was the image quality on the cards. It looked a little grainy, much like using an old printer to print out a photo; you see every dot. Maybe I'm just a perfectionist. What have you ordered from Shutterfly? Were you satisfied? I also included a pic of the boys with her on the back :)

  3. So beautiful! I love Shutterfly, but the last time I made announcements I had some made through Shutterfly and some made through Vistaprint and I really loved the Vistaprint ones!

  4. I order from Shutterfly all the time (they are always sending me coupons for free stuff), but I have to agree that the quality isn't always the best. However, compared to other services I've used, it's probably the best. Their photo books and calendars are pretty neat too.

    I love the announcements! I'm so behind...I just haven't had a moment to get those together for myself. I think I'm going to combine Xmas cards and birth announcements.

  5. I didn't know Vistaprint made announcements. Megan-They make lots of Christmas/birth announcements! You could dress him in a Santa suit too :) That would be adorable. There's also this great site in the past I used called photo affections.com. They make really nice Christmas birth announcements.

  6. Ours just got here- loved it! Well, actually, Eve's been pretty obsessed w/it...I think the poor thing really kinda wishes that Isaac had been a girl! :)

  7. Alissa- That's funny with Eve. I already joke with Evie that I doubt she'll ever get a sister with our record (plus we're taking a few years break now):0

  8. It's beautiful! I used shutterfly for our wedding/honeymoon albums and they turned out really nice. Our Christmas cards from last year were from there too. I like how affordable it is. Didn't know about the vistaprints though...that's where Chris gets his business cards printed. I'll have to look into that!

  10. The announcement pictures are beautiful! It is the most beautiful thing in our kitchen!

    I do agree with you that the pixels are a little disappointing. I would have expected better as well.
