Create the Father’s Day card he will remember

The men in my life are tough to shop for. Two of them are firm believers in NO PRESENTS EVER! – what? Are you kidding? – and the other two have absolutely everything.

I’ve come up with an effective solution to these challenges, though, and it’s called the personalized photo card. A photo card is small, so even the man who has everything will find a place for it. It’s personalized, so he’s guaranteed to appreciate it. AND technically, it’s not really a present. Plus, I’ve come up with a secret formula to create the card he will always remember.

Here’s the secret, in case you want to use it for yourself. Go ahead, I don’t mind. All you need to do is answer one of these questions and you’ll have the perfect words for your Father’s Day card:

  • Your favorite moment with the dad in your life
  • Why he’s so special to you
  • The things about him that make you smile

If you need a little more inspiration to get you started, take a look at the example above.

    Both of the cards are gorgeous. I love the selection of cards at Shutterfly, and being able to personalize them is the best part.

  2. Joey Says:

    I love these cards you created Rachel. I was just thinking I need to make my dad a card – perfect inspiration. I, too, love all the new selections and that we can personalize them with our own special greetings.
    Off to make my cards!

    I just love the cover of the father’s day card. Your choice of a black and white photo with the grays and the powder blues works so well. As for making a father’s day card so personal and special will mean much more that a store bought card for sure! I love it!

    I will be using a few of these ideas come next year. I took a great funny picture of my dad that I am going to sit on for a year, til he forgets and then use it in his fathers day card that I will put together in Shutterfly next year :) Great ideas!

  5. Jean B Says:

    Great Ideas, Rachel!!
    My Dad was gone long before I found the world of Shutterfly……but he would have loved the cards I would have made him!! I would have had a lot of fun with this!!

more about Rachel B

Thank you for visiting “Picture More”, Shutterfly's Community Blog. My name is Rachel, and I come from a long line of photo enthusiasts. My grandparents kept a large (and heavy!) collection of family photo albums in their living room, which my sister and I loved looking through. My mother continued the tradition by becoming a hobby photographer (phrases like “smile, “hold that pose” and “let me get my camera” were a constant part of our lives). Now my sister and I are avid camera fans. She takes beautiful pictures of her children, and I enjoy capturing the many far-away places my husband and I visit. What I love about Shutterfly is that it helps me turn my photos into meaningful keepsakes like photo books, calendars, and photo gifts (I love my coasters, posters, mug and mouse pad!). My memories are now a part of my everyday life, not living in a shoe box or hard drive. And what I love about "Picture More" is that it will help us get even more creative with our pictures. I'm excited to exchange ideas with all of you!
