Every year, I always plan to hand-craft my Christmas cards and I have high ambitions of making them super cute, adorned with all of the holiday stickers and embellishments I’ve collected from Hobby Lobby’s sale section throughout the year. BUT, then December rolls around and it seems as if all of the sudden time has run out, my plate has gotten too full and it’s easier to just have them printed online. This year, I used Minted for our Christmas cards—they offer beautiful holiday cards that can easily be personalized to show off your family’s uniqueness. I’m no stranger to Minted. I’ve ordered before for holiday cards and personalized stationery gifts and I’ve been eyeing these Custom Silhouette Art Prints for the longest time. Everything they produce is top notch from the quality of card stock to the beautiful typography etched through their lovely designs. I’m a sucker for a good font and they have plenty to choose from.
How It Works:
After browsing through their hundreds of templates and selecting which best suits you (narrowing it down may just be the hardest part!), most cards will give you the option to customize between a few different color palettes and when all’s said and done, you’re left with a one-of-a-kind, exquisite Christmas card that couldn’t have been easier to design but still gives you that personal, tailored-made-for-your-family look.
Whether you’re looking for a photo card or non-photo card, a more traditional card with classic Christmas colors and clean lines or a modern, artsy version with all the bells and whistles, Minted offers something for everyone’s taste (even professional Business Holiday Cards). I’m loving the foil designs this year!
My Top 5 Favorite Minted Designs:
Modern Confetti Merry Foil Pressed I love the simple glitz of this card… it’s available with gold foil, silver or a rose blush!
Merry Triptych Photo Card Great design when you can’t get a good pic of the whole family in one shot. ;)
Grateful design I love the country/rustic feel of this card… if only I could get my whole family in boots!
What I Love Most:
One of my favorite things about my shopping experience with Minted is their ‘Find It Fast‘ feature–it will allow you to view thumbnails of all of their cards using one of your uploaded photos so you can quickly see which card layout suits your fancy the most. It’s really helpful in narrowing down your choices!
In addition to covering all of your holiday card needs, keep them in mind for personalized gifts, too! I’ve gifted some of these personalized notebooks before and have gotten great feedback from my family and friends. Their stationery designs are just as beautiful and creative as their cards. Check out their Home Decor too for fun prints and living room accents!
I chose a simple design this year to fit my family’s silly Christmas selfie and I’m eager to get them stamped and on their way to family far away. Shipping was surprisingly speedy, so you still have plenty of time to get your orders in before Christmas!
