Product Review: Shutterfly

We just had our annual Poop family holiday card photo shoot. I can't reveal any details about the card other than that all 5 of us were in it and that between Chase, Julian, Diesel and "Blinky" Mrs. Poop, it's very hard to find a shot where all of us are looking at the camera and smiling.

The other thing I can tell you is that the card is coming from Shutterfly.

We have used the site for our holiday card in the past, because it has good prices, good backgrounds and quality printing paper (not some cheap piece of paper, real photo quality prints).

And it doesn't have to be just for Hanukah or Christmas, check out the Valentine's Day Card Mrs. Poop made a couple years ago.

I can reveal that we will be ordering our card from among shutterfly's Hanukah layouts. There are 57 of them, usually us Jews don't get that many to choose from.

Shutterfly will not only help you with your holiday card, it can provide you with a cheap and easy gift idea, especially for grandparents. We really like shutterfly's photo books. We took a trip for my parents 40th anniversary and made them one to commemorate it. This year we made a great book capturing Julian's birth.

Another great gift idea is a calendar. Once again I am targeting my comments to those of you with children because you can take pictures of your kids from each season (Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, etc) and spread them out through the appropriate month. You can also use pictures of people to mark their own birthdays.

So check out shutterfly and you might find something good/easy to buy this holiday season.
