Celebrate the Holidays in Style with Minted

Minted Merry Christmas Holiday Photo CardGeneric SPI am somewhat of a snob when it comes to my Christmas cards. I spend hours looking for the perfect card after having just spent hours finding or taking the perfect photo of our family. I love creating personalized cards every year to send out to family and friends. I enjoy putting a message on them about our family and sending them out as much as I enjoy receiving them.

I have a bulletin board in our kitchen nook that holds all of the cards sent to us last year. We will take them down when we start getting new holiday cards this year. My entire family loves seeing these photo cards throughout the year and it is a fun reminder of all those who we keep in touch with.  I truly do want to create something that people will want to keep long past the holidays.

This year we are using Minted for our holiday cards.


Minted is the world's premier marketplace for independent design. Our mission is to find exceptional artists and designers all over the world and bring their work to consumers who appreciate great design. They believe that great design lives and thrives in the hands of indie designers that people may not have access to through traditional retailers. Their goal is to use technology to allow our community to discover the work of great designers from all over the world. And at the same time, create a place where designers can get exposure and build their careers.

Minted crowd-sources design and art from a global community of independent designers, then sells their best designs as fine products such as stationery, wall art, and décor for the home, holidays, and occasions. Minted was an early pioneer of crowdsourcing product design and has held open art and graphic design challenges monthly since 2008. All designers and artists are welcome to enter our open challenges. Designers collaborate on our community platform and provide peer critiques that improve both designers and designs over time. Consumers and designers curate Minted's product assortment by voting on the entries to each challenge, ensuring that the best designers and designs are surfaced and represented on Minted. Minted produces and sells the winning designs, paying the designer a commission on every sale.

Minted Christmas Photo Cards


Now I am torn between two Christmas cards. I love the Be Light Christmas Photo Cards:

Minted Picture Christmas Card

The card would be perfect for an entire family photo or just something with the kids and our dog.

However, I occasionally feel the need to represent our family's southern roots in which case these Southern Accent Christmas Photo Cards are perfect as well: Minted Holiday Photo Cards

My problem is that I like so many of the cards and I am already having a hard time choosing which design I like best!

I was at a recent conference where Minted printed the programs and Big Ideas notebooks so that we could write in them. To this day, that notebook stays in purse and people are constantly asking where I got it. The paper is amazing and the printing quality even better.

Minted Holiday CardsAt Minted, they love the idea that their products will find their way into your most personal celebrations, and they don't take that honor lightly. That's why they only use fine paper stock, rich inks, and crisp printing methods. They stand behind our products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

This is a feature that I am thrilled about. I am a details person so the last thing that I want to is forget my envelopes.  Now they have matching envelope designs which just look fabulous plus they offer a ton of choices:
