Have you heard of Minted? They are an online retailer specializing in wedding invitation, birthday invitations (I love the cute kids’ birthday party invitations), wall art, and more. Because we’re currently almost halfway through October, I should also mention that they’re a leading designer of Christmas cards.
So you may be thinking, aren’t there lots of sites that offer these things? Yes, but here’s what makes Minted stand out:
- Independent artists design for Minted, and Minted customers choose designs through competitions. Here’s a live feed of designs currently being submitted. Pretty neat!
- Minted is classy! They use thick, luxurious card stock for quality cards.
- They offer a huge selection of holiday cards, and an easy-to-use website that helps you choose your favorites easily. They also offer free addressing on all cards. Nice!
- This year, Minted launched a new service called Text Us Your Photo. Simply text them your favorite holiday photo, and a stylist will text you back your photo styled in 5 holiday card designs. Sound expensive? I know, that’s what I thought too. But it’s FREE!
- This happens to me a lot: I find a deal at a store, but don’t have time to get my cards or whatever ready before the offer expires. No worries with Minted: they let you take advantage of a promotional offer and buy cards now. Then, you can come back to finish personalizing with photos, text, or addresses at any time.
- Find It Fast is a tool that saves you time by allowing you to see your photo in every different holiday card design at once — pretty neat.
- Minted lets you make your cards unique to you with extensive personalization options, such as colors, shapes, paper upgrades, backers & interiors.
Here are a few of my favorite designs.
This is called Plaid Tidings. I love the rustic look of the plaid — and the red makes it so Christmasy, as well! I also enjoy receiving cards with multiple photos, such as those featured here. You can order this card in two different sizes, or you can even order it as postcards. What a great way to save on postage!
This card is entitled Jesus Lord at Thy Birth. I love that it features the true meaning of the Christmas season! And, the font and design has a really classy look. It’s the perfect card if you’ve got one stunning photo to feature on your cards this year. If your photo goes well with other colors, you can choose the left-side color to be navy or red instead. See what I mean about options? Minted has them!
One more Christmas card I love. This one is called Snowflake Fragments. It would be a little tricky to find just the right photos to fit into each segment, but if you’ve had photos made and have several to choose from, this card would be a wonderful way to send lots of photos to family and friends at Christmas. Did you know that you can include even more photos (or a message) on the back of this card, or most of the other options as well? Truly lots of options to choose from.
Your Christmas card may be the only (or one of the only) times some people see photos of you each year. I know many people treasure photo Christmas cards. This design showcases your photos in a beautiful, artistic way.
Yes, this post is basically about Christmas cards, but I had to pop in with this children’s birthday invitation, the Party Table Children’s Birthday Party Invitation. Because … is this not one of the cutest kids’ birthday invitations you have EVER seen? I love it! It makes me wish I could dial back the years a decade or so, because I would definitely buy this. So adorable. Minted also sells matching thank you notes and favor tags. Cute, cute, cute!!
