Pros / Shutterfly has no minimum order requirements. You can order just one card if you like.

Cons / You cannot pre-order envelopes.

 Verdict / There are sites with a wider template selection, but Shutterfly can help you create a quality photo card.

Shutterfly is a great site for creative types. It offers a long list of products to help you create keepsakes, including photo cards. It features many of the tools and options you find in similar photo card printing services, and the process for creating the cards is easy to follow. Cards, especially holiday cards, come in all sizes, formats and layouts.

One of Shutterfly's standout features is its delivery service. You can have the company stuff, stamp and mail all of your photo cards for you, so all you have to worry about is the design process. You are also given plenty of photo storage. This picture card service never deletes photos, and its online storage is free. It also keeps your address list on file so you can easily use it for future photo cards you want to make.

We ordered a couple of photo cards from Shutterfly and both had good photo reproduction and an attractive design. The paper was a little thin, for both the photo card and the envelope, but the photo was bright and clear.

This service doesn't allow you to pre-order envelopes, but we got our cards quickly so you're not likely have a lot of lag time to get the envelopes addressed in advance. There are no colorful or lined envelope options with this site, and that is a drawback.

When personalizing your photo card, this service offers a wide range of font, color and alignment choices for the text in your card. The text is customizable but fixed in place. The best photo card sites allow you to move and add text anywhere you like. You can edit your photos in minor ways as well by cropping, rotating or applying filters.

This site offers a wide selection of attractive designs. There are hundreds of gorgeous holiday photo cards, along with dozens of invites and announcements. The Christmas photo cards are definitely a highlight of this service, making Shutterfly an ideal choice for creating a photo card for the end of the year. You can also choose from a long list of cards with different announcements.

This service offers plenty of stylish cards to keep friends and family in the loop when you're celebrating events like a graduation, birth, wedding or move. You can also order invitations for most special occasions such as bridal or baby showers. Even if you aren't celebrating anything in particular, you can order stationery from Shutterfly to create thank you photo cards, address labels and personalized stamps.

This custom photo card service has many features that make the designing and ordering process smooth. While you design your card, the photo quality feature monitors the resolution of your photo. If it appears too high or low for the card, the photo editor notifies you. This prevents your photo from appearing blurry or pixilated in print.

You can also search for cards with a variety of categories such as photo card orientation, size and price range. Envelopes are included in your order, so you don’t have to worry about any extra costs. There is no minimum order quantity, so if you need just one or two cards instead of 25 or 50, Shutterfly can help you out.

This service offers a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your order for any reason. The company also features live chat, email and telephone support. There are also FAQs and additional information about the company's guarantee, policies, pricing and more on the Shutterfly website.

We were especially impressed with Shutterfly's outstanding selection of holiday photo cards and the excellent photo reproduction. Even though this photo card service lacks a few features and tools other services provide, it can help you create beautiful picture cards that you, your family and friends will love.
