Minted Review

Are you looking for adorable and unique Christmas or Holiday cards? Something that expresses the spirit of your family in a special way? is a great place to go.

Their site is set up in a very easy to browse fashion. The main page shows you some highlighted products as well as enables you to click on a menu to specifically search for types of items. They have a very clean design that is easy on the eyes.

Minted is a community of thousands of designers. There are literally thousands of designs submitted every month. Their mission is to connect the world's best design geniuses with a community of design-savvy customers who enjoy the creation and appreciation of good design. I'd say they succeeded.

Seeing as Christmas is right around the corner I was quite excited to browse through their Christmas card collection. Whimsical, fun, special, and beautiful are just a few words I could use to describe the cards I found. I also love the fact that I can do both photo and non-photo cards. There are Christmas, Holiday, and New Years cards.

Here are some of my favorites:

Brushed Gold Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards
Peace card with real brushed gold foil.

Poinsettias and Pinecones Holiday Non-Photo Cards

Aren't there so many cute cards to choose from? And, this is just a teensy sampling. I think the hardest part is picking a design! They have a feature on their site called Find It Fast. You can try your photo in multiple cards and see which you like best! 

You can even take advantage of their free recipient addressing. That alone is worth it's weight in gold. I love sending cards but sometimes it feels so cumbersome to address all those envelopes. 

And, you will never have to worry about sending out sub-standard Christmas cards. There are multiple options for paper types from their signature paper (A thick and luxurious stock in an off-white hue with a creamy cotton texture, usually reserved for fine stationery.) to Pearlescent (Adds a subtle shimmer finish and rich look to cards, and a soft glow to photographs, for the ultimate in elegance.) and even Premium 100% recycled paper (Very thick paper with a smooth, matte finish). 

I hope you find something you love as much as I did! And, as a bonus they have Black Friday specials! 20% off your purchase of $150 or more and 15% off a purchase of $100-149 using the code BFHOL13. Buy now, upload your photo later!!
