I’ve always wanted to be that person that sends Christmas cards. The problem being, I wanted them to be different. I have a penchant for things that are unique. Lucky for me, Minted came to my rescue.
Minted is an American online retailer based in San Francisco, that crowd-sources design from independent artists and sells the designs as high-end paper goods, including holiday cards, wedding invitations, wall art, party decor, and stationery.
I was so impressed with the work they did with Blog Podium that choosing them to do my Christmas cards was a no brainer. This is the card I chose:
In a Pear Tree by GriffinBell Paper Co.
Cute isn’t it? The 12 days of Christmas is my all time favourite holiday song. Actually, here’s a funny off-topic story, Kate informed me that her class will be singing for the elderly this holiday. She then told me that she would be singing the 12 days of Christmas, and proceeded to sing me the song. She asked me if I was her true love. I obviously said yes. Then she asked where she could buy a partridge and a pear tree for me.
Anyway! Back on track. I ordered these cards and they came SO quickly. Within 2 days quick! I was so impressed. Unfortunately, I received someone else’s cards. They were beautiful, just not for me. (they had a family photo) Minted was so apologetic and promptly sent me out my new cards. I can’t say I’m complaining much, I got a extra pack of envelopes out of it.
Here’s my cards in the process of being addressed.
Excuse the chipped nails.
I loved that I had so much room to write my message. Minted provides so many personalization options for these cards and the price cannot be beat! I couldn’t believe it. I can’t wait to order my Valentine’s Day cards They’ve certainly got a customer for life!
Minted provided me cards in exchange for this blog post. However, the opinions are all my own. I wouldn’t lie to you guys. Pinky swear.
