Shutterfly Review

Disclaimer: I did receive a code for 20 free prints and free shipping from Shutterfly so that I could review their product at no cost to myself.  This in no way influenced the content of this post.

Displaying photos from your travels is a fantastic way to relive those adventures!  Personally, I prefer to frame printed photos rather than using only digital versions of the pictures and this is where a printing service comes in.  Of course, I could print my own photos on my printer at home, but they never turn out quite right.  So when Shutterfly offered me the chance to try out their printing service, I took it.  They gave me a code for 20 free prints and free shipping on those prints (although it appears you get 50 free prints just for being a first time user).  I used this as an opportunity to get a mixture of photos printed from various travels over the last few years.

I started by creating my account, which was an easy and quick process.  Next, I selected the photos I wanted to be print from my collection on my computer.  This was extremely simple to do in Shutterfly’s interface even though the photos were located in several different folders.  Once uploaded, I was able to make simple edits to the photos such as cropping a few.  Then I continued through Shutterfly’s easy to navigate interface and entered my shipping information and billing (coupon codes) information.  With the final confirmation, my order was processed!

About a week later, my photos arrived in a bright orange envelope!  Despite the various quality of the original images (some taken with a DSLR, some with a camera phone) Shutterfly managed to make them all come out very well.  I’m quite pleased to be able to send some to friends’ in their holiday cards as reminders of past travel adventures together.  Overall, a simple and quick experience for getting physical photos from my travels!
