For the last eight years we have been promoting both Shutterfly and Minted and a handful of other holiday card merchants. Although we were amongst Shutterfly's early advocates, truthfully, we are a bit over them. This week, as we went back through our files reviewing all the holiday cards we received last year, we realized the cards that stood out were the ones from Minted! The paper was better, the printing was better, and the designs were way more interesting. So this year before you place your usual order, we highly recommend you take a second look at Minted.
Minted has a well curated selection of holiday cards to meet any style. They of course offer their highly acclaimed original holiday cards, but also offer Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards, Letterpress Holiday Cards and more. They also make it very quick and easy to find the perfect card. You can upload your photo, and they will show you what it will look like on each card. You can also mark your favorites as you go so you remember which ones you liked best.
Best Style & Formatting Options
And we love the fact on Minted that you can find a format that perfectly fits your needs.
Easy to Use Choose Your Filter Options
Once you choose your format and style, you can then choose your colors, shapes, paper upgrades, backers and interior. And Minted even offers free recipient and return addressing. They make it so simple with their easy to use filter selection.
Text Us Your Photo
This year, Minted even launched a NEW service called Text Us Your Photo. Simply text them your favorite holiday photo, and your Minted stylist will text you back your photo styled in 5 holiday card designs – for FREE. How cool is that! Plus, in the past we have showcased just how helpful their Find It Fast tool is for choosing the best holiday card design for your photo. This tool saves time and helps alleviate stress by allowing you to see your photo in every holiday card design at once.
Beautifully Designed Cards for Everyone
So now for the fun part! Here are a few of our favorite cards. Yes, Minted has ornament Christmas cards, religious Christmas cards, Chanukah cards, Feliz Navidad cards, and even adorable cards especially designed for dog and cat lovers!
And our very favorite holiday cards from Minted are the custom designed cards. Showcase your art created by you or your children! Such an authentic and genuine way to express your heartfelt wishes for the holiday season.
Oh wait! We almost forgot. These booklet cards are so so perfect if you like to include a holiday letter with your card. This is an elegant solution to the age old problem of trying to properly fold and squish your home printed letter into your holiday card envelopes. Now you can share more photos and memories than ever before with Minted's new unique Booklette™ cards. With chic rounded corners gold staple binding and 8 pages of photos and text Booklette™ cards really are the modern annual newsletter. Note that Booklette™ cards do NOT require extra postage.
Best Holiday Card Deal!
And finally, we just happened upon this new concept >> Minted is offering something they are calling Minted More. Basically it is a membership program which seems to us to be quite the deal. For $50 you get a darling set of assorted greeting cards, a gift wrap essential kit with eight different looks, and even a table runner with 4 perfectly paired napkins — all very giftable!. Plus, you get free shipping and 30% OFF your holiday cards. So basically if you buy 100 foiled pressed holiday cards for ~$200 you can take $60 OFF and free shipping. This seems to us to be a bit of a no brainer. The discount alone is more than the cost of membership and you get the Minted Gift Box.
So order today and take 20% OFF your holiday card order or join Minted More's membership club to save 30% + get a free gift box.
