I wouldn’t consider myself old fashioned in very many instances but when it comes to using that good old fashioned mail box, not the one that says “You’ve Got Mail”, it is my thing! I am that person, I will send you a birthday invitation in the mail, a thank you note or even a “just thinking of you card” because I truly believe in the art of paper correspondence.
That being said, I love holiday card season! I love sending and receiving cards. I totally get giddy when I head to the mailbox every evening!! Please tell me that I am not the only one that feels that way! Ha!! Okay and now back to holiday cards, because I love them so much, the idea of choosing the perfect card takes time. Over the last 4 years we have used Minted and honestly, I would never go any other route.
What is Minted?
Minted is a design marketplace. We source creative content from a global community of independent artists, then sell the best content in the form of art, home décor, and stationery, directly to consumers.
Minted’s community of independent artists and designers are located in all 50 states and more than 60 countries. They are illustrators and textile designers, painters and packaging designers, marketers and stay-at-home moms. Some have design degrees, and others are participating in Minted competitions to learn design for the first time. They share a deep love for creative expression, personal development, risk-taking, and most importantly, paying it forward by helping each other.
Minted’s website is so easy to use that I literally picked my card design, created my card and ordered my card in about 15 minutes. Minted is known for his beautiful options that are always a little bit different the the competitors. I feel like the card options are way more updated and creative than other card companies. I feel the same way about the other gift items. All of the personalized options and even with that, I had my order sent off in just a few minutes.
