Shutterfly: free photo card, great idea for Mother’s Day

shutterfly logoThere’s 101 reasons why you might give or send out a single photo card, and one great idea is for this Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

So, why not find a great photo(s) and design a personalized photo card this Mother’s Day or Father’s Day? Even with a nominal shipping fee, it’s going to be a lot cheaper and more meaningful than going to the local drugstore for a greeting card!

If you use Shutterfly to print your digital photos, consider tacking on a free photo card to your next order! (just design the card and enter the promo code in your shopping cart)

Other uses for a free photo card from Shutterfly: Birth Announcements, Save the Dates, Free Sample Invitation, & More

So, we’ve covered the obvious uses for this: a custom card for a special holiday like birthday and Mother’s Day. However, if you’re planning on getting engaged, married, expecting a baby, or have kids who are graduating in the near future, this is a great way to design a card and get it in your hands as a sample before ordering a large number of invites / announcements.

Last time we ordered personalized invitations, we received them only to realize; wow, these are much bigger than we thought! Better to realize that with one 6×8 card than 100!

Free personalized photo card: Mother’s Day, or any day!

Offer is good for 1 free 3/4 fold card or 5×7 tri-fold card or 6×8 flat card or 4×8 flat card or 5×7 flat card or 5×7 folded card or 5×5 flat card on signature cardstock at shutterfly.com.

These are particularly great if you have a toddler in preschool and you want to give treats to the class without having to resort to candy that the little ones shouldn’t have. Plus, it’s completely frugal. You can make Valentine’s for an entire class of students for around $3.00!

The next couple weeks will be packed full of fun Valentine crafts for kids!
