1. They have beautiful designs for all styles. I love that you can filter through the cards by style like “Simple and Minimalist” or “Modern and Edgy”. This year we used our family photos for our Christmas cards. I was very intentional in how I planned our photos so that they would match my home and my style and feel like us. My holiday decor is mostly cream, gold, and green and has lots of different textures. I took cues from my holiday decor to choose a simple and pretty card design that looks and feels like our family. When our friends and family receive their cards- they will get a little piece of us in their home. They’ll even get a glimpse of the newest classic car to join our family!
2. Tell Your Story. As much as I enjoyed designing the front, I loved writing our story on the back almost as much! Minted has so many different layout options and ways to tell your family’s story in pictures or in words. I included a little letter on the back of our card and took a minute to tell all of our friends and family a quick update about each of us. It made it more personal and shares a little more with our family than just a pretty card. Hopefully none of my real friends and family are reading this, or this will spoil their cards… but here is what I wrote in our cards this year.
3. Custom stamps. One of my most favorite things about ordering from Minted- besides their beautiful designs, is that I can order stamps to come with my cards! I ALWAYS forget to buy stamps and it’s so frustrating. Minted has taken that issue off the table and I was able to just order as many stamps as I needed with my cards. Easy, peasy! They also provide beautiful matching envelopes with all of your cards. And you can customize those to if you prefer! And if that wasn’t enough, they have a great Online Address Book feature where you can have Minted keep track of addresses and address your cards!
