To further simplify holiday-related correspondence this year, the Shutterfly Card Stylist offers customers the following tips and pointers for their Invitations and Thank You Notes:

Please join us…

— The holiday season is busy for everyone and schedules book quickly. Send Invitations as early as you like, but most guests won’t RSVP until after Thanksgiving. It takes only a few minutes to personalize your Invitation on Shutterfly, so better to order while it’s top of mind.

— Consider the tone and theme of your party when choosing an Invitation and writing the text. Shutterfly makes it easy by coordinating the font with the design and includes expanded preview features, so you can be sure the look of your words will match the feeling.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness …

— Always be prompt with a thank you — order your Thank You Notes in advance of gifting occasions, and keep an extra set on hand to acknowledge unexpected gestures and gifts.

— Personalized Thank You Cards make a great gift for the host or hostess.

— Get the whole family involved in saying thanks with a handwritten note on a set of Shutterfly’s custom-made Designer Cards with the family’s name. This is a great way to introduce children early to proper thank you etiquette — even a single sentence can go a long way in expressing gratitude.

— And a good reminder, especially at this time of year when we hear from distant family and friends, always send a physical thank you for a gift not opened in the giver’s presence.

Shutterfly’s new Designer Invitations and Thank You Cards measure 5″x7″ and are printed on premium 110 lb matte cardstock. The single-sided cards are sold in sets of 12 or 25 and include lined envelopes. For more information on Shutterfly’s new Designer Cards, please visit
