REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 14, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Shutterfly, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFLY), the leading Internet-based social expression and personal publishing service, today announced the addition of a “School Days” photo book template to its industry-leading photo book line. To add to the end of the year excitement, Shutterfly also introduced a new line of personalized graduation announcements. This June, college and high school graduations are not the only reason to celebrate; Shutterfly helps parents honor the youngest of graduates from preschool, kindergarten and elementary school with new inspirational photo book and announcements to help commemorate one of their child’s achievements.
Designed exclusively for Shutterfly by Creating Keepsakes’ Tiffany Tillman, the new “School Days” photo book offers parents a clever way to drag and drop their pictures into a personalized “yearbook” or “classroom book,” capturing their child’s milestones throughout the year. From the first day of school to graduation day – highlighting everyday snapshots of friends and favorite teachers – the guided template format allows parents to easily create an elegant and professional looking year-in-review photo book for their graduate or for all the kids in the classroom. Even better, parents can collaborate with teachers to build a personalized photo book – adding photos from the classroom and multiple parents using Shutterfly’s sharing technology. Parents looking for additional guidance and inspiration while personalizing the “School Days” photo book for their child can find creative tips from the designer Tiffany Tillman, a planner to organize the creation process and variations for the book at www.ck.shutterfly.com/inspire.
“We’ve heard from parents that they want an easy way to create a personalized, creative, yet professional alternative to generic yearbooks as a way to celebrate and preserve their child’s personal school memories,” said Kathryn Olson, chief marketing officer of Shutterfly. “Our new School Days photo book allows parents to chronicle classroom memories at every age.”
Parents can also share their child’s achievement with friends and family with newly designed graduation invitations and announcements. Whether parents are celebrating their child’s success or hosting the graduation party, Shutterfly has coordinated solutions for graduates of all ages. Invitations and announcements come in 4×6 and 5×7 photo card and 5×7 greeting card formats and feature designs ranging from mature to whimsical.

In addition to the “School Days” photo book, Shutterfly has a host of gift suggestions for graduates and teachers. The littlest graduates will adore being the star of their favorite bedtime story in Shutterfly’s My Amazing Alphabet Adventures, My Adventures on Sesame Street, Dora and My Rescue Adventure, and My Happy Day on Sesame Street books.
