Shutterfly is hiring more than 1,800 people to work at its Fort Mill, S.C., printing and customer service facility during the holiday season, its busiest time of the year.

The company produces items like photobooks and holiday cards from its Fort Mill site. A spokeswoman said Shutterfly receives the majority of its orders for the year between Halloween and early December.

The company is hiring for a mix of job opportunities, the spokeswoman said. Those interested can apply at http://www.shutterflyinc.com/careers.html.

Shutterfly does most of the production of those orders, as well as customer care, in four facilities in the U.S., the spokeswoman added. The other three are in Minnesota, Arizona and California.

Last year, a manufacturing executive told the Observer’s media partner WBTV that Shutterfly has a “pretty extensive training program” for its seasonal workers, so it’s not necessary to have a particular skill to apply for one of the jobs.

The company said it was adding about 1,500 workers in Fort Mill for last year’s holiday season.

Shutterfly expanded its Charlotte-area operations in 2013. It closed a 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in southwest Charlotte and moved all its workers, and added many new ones, to a new, 300,000-square-foot Fort Mill facility that year.
