Giveaway: Tips For “Mint” Holiday Cards

Looking for fresh, innovative designs for your holiday photo cards this year? We found them at Minted! No really, while we say nice things about all that we post because we post what we like, we are super excited about “quality obsessed” Minted.



Because I love to cook with and for family & friends, I am partial to the cool Recipe card. I think this one is guaranteed to make everyone’s kitchen fridge!

Forgive me if I offend, but who really wants to read the old school two page brag letter for the family update. Minted’s clever, concise and contemporary take on family milestones by way of the ‘Yearline” card is simply brilliant.

How do we know they are unique? “Our luxe, customizable holiday photo cards were specially gathered through design competitions held on our site.  Hundreds of the best independent designers from around the world entered the competitions, and our site’s visitors voted for the best designs to be sold on Minted.  We’re offering more than 100 unique customizable photo card templates, including a variety of designs from favorite recipes to hand-illustrated toys.  All of the cards are beautifully printed on matte, heavyweight cardstock that is also 100% recycled.”

Here are some helpful tips from Minted for when selecting your holiday card this year….

1. Order complimentary address labels (they look great on the envelopes and stand out)
2. If possible, use professional (or high quality) photos
3. Choose close-up photos
4. Be different! Go with a limited edition card or a Yearline card that showcases highlights from the year.

    I really like the joyful lovebirds baby announcement. I will joyfully announce the birth of my daughter right after Christmas so I love the bright, happy colors for winter. If I were to do a Christmas card this Peace, Joy and Love one featured really caught my eye…THANKS!

    I really think that the card called “Let it Snow” is out of this world wonderful! We always take pictures of our kids playing in the snow and I would never think to use it for a holiday card. I love how it’s designed. It’s very cute and pretty!
