It's no surprise to anyone who reads this blog regularly that I love Minted. I've ordered business cards, last year's holiday cards, artwork for myself, and artwork for clients. Basically, they're one of my go-to resources.
For the uninitiated, Minted is a paper lovers' haven. Not only do they carry holiday cards, wedding invitations, birth announcements, personal stationery, business cards, and so much more; they ALSO have an extensive collection of art AND (drumroll, please...) fabric! Seriously, the fabric shop is brand new and full of insanely gorgeous prints. But the best part? All designs are created by independent artists from across the world. They submit their designs, YOU get to vote on them, and then Minted sells the winners. It's pretty fantastic. Okay, I'm gushing. I'll stop. You can read more about it here, if you're interested.
These are our holiday cards for this year. I'm in love with them. Like head over heels. THAT'S REAL FOIL! And the paper is super thick. If you're a stationery addict like me, you know how important that is. The quality is amazing. No exaggeration.
It was excruciating trying to narrow down my favourites but I eventually whittled it down to a group of four, with this one being my absolute favourite. When I showed them to the boyfriend, this design was his clear winner too (#soulmates). It's designed by Hooray Creative, who is insanely talented. Seriously. My business cards were also designed by her. (Which actually was a complete coincidence, haha.)
AND NOW, HERE'S THE BEST PART: Minted is giving one lucky The Shimmer reader $200 to spend on whatever Minted products they're coveting. So, pop on over to Minted, check out their wares, and then leave me a comment on this blog post with what YOU would buy with your cash money if you won. Cards? Art? Fabric? Wedding Invitations? TELL ME. I WANT TO KNOW.
Contest is now closed. The winner is Kathryn Young, chosen through random.org. Thanks for participating!
I received these cards for free in exchange for a review of Minted products. All thoughts, opinions, words, and images are my own. I take pride in only working with companies I believe in and think are a good fit for this blog and its readers. Thanks for supporting The Shimmer!
