For the last Tuesday of April I am sharing my favorite, wedding tip - use Shutterfly to compile your wedding photos. I made several albums and ordered countless prints for both our wedding and honeymoon pictures and am so pleased with the results. Using Shutterfly was quick, easy and the the prices are so much cheaper than anywhere else I saw.
I made wedding albums for my parents, my grandparents and my in-laws and everyone loved them. If you design a phonebook you can choose between numerous templates, or designing the whole book from scratch. To be frank, I don't enjoy compiling phonebooks, but I still found making an album on Shutterfly enjoyable! Plus, the books can come in a number of finishes and have a dust jacket, so they look way more expensive than they are.
After ordering so many items, I learned a few pro tips. First, you can use more than one coupon code. Use the main promotion they have going on for a discount on your items, and then you can also use a free shipping coupon (they aren't always advertised on the main page, just google Shutterfly shipping coupon). Second, I suggest uploading all your photos onto your Shutterfly account at once, and then picking and choosing which photos you want to make projects with later. It saves a lot of time. Third, you can share albums with other people on the website before you order them. Finally, you can edit photo books after you order them! I realized I had a typo after I hit order, and since I realized it immediately I could cancel the order, fix the mistake, and then purchase it again. So basically ordering a book on Shutterfly means no regrets, not one letter. (anyone know the reference?!!)
Everything comes shipped to your house really quickly, or you can have prints picked up at your local CVS/Target etc. The store prints aren't quite as thick as the ones that are shipped to you, but you can't tell the difference once they are framed.
Do you guys use Shutterfly? Do you love it as much as me?
