It is that time of year again...time to order your holiday cards. I am often asked for recommendations on card companies and one of my favorites is Minted. I love their designs, the quality of their card stock and how easy they make it to help you decide on a card....well maybe not that easy because there are so many beautiful choices! I also love how Minted is a marketplace of independent artists. All of their designs are from independent artists, illustrators and painters from all over the world.
So now, let me tell you about my Minted experience......
I ordered my cards earlier this month and love the results. As I mentioned above, ordering was easy. Once I decided on the photo I was going to use and uploaded it, I narrowed down the choices by choosing the format and clicking the "number of photos" selection. I then used the "see more filters" drop down menu to choose a color scheme, which helped me find a design that complimented the outfits my kids were wearing.
I love how the site auto populated the designs with my image so that I could see a preview right away of the cards with my photo. As you can see, I was able to tell right away what layouts wouldn't work given my photo (I have four kids, not three and the first option cropped out my son). :)
I ended up choosing a foil pressed design....decided I need a little bling this year, since I was picking a simple format....and I love the results! Oh and one thing I tried this year that I have not done before, is their FREE offer to address your envelopes (for a limited time)! All I had to do was upload my spreadsheet and that was it! SOOO easy. My beautiful cards arrived and my envelopes are ready to go. All I need is a stamp!
