I have found the holy grail of holiday photo cards: minted.
Really. I love nearly every single thing about this company, because what once took me hours up on hours upon hours and a boatload of stress and anxiety now takes me minutes and is actually–dare I say–fun.
minted is a company I’ve used before for our holiday cards, and each time I use them, I’m more and more convinced that this company creates cards that rock.
But that’s not the only thing that is totally awesome about minted. minted as a company rocks. From the promotions to the blog to contests and support they offer to rising star photographers, they’re really a cool company.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- Holiday Cards that Rock–minted: I wouldn’t have found minted if not for their holiday photo cards, so that’s what I love first and foremost.
I love that I can find my cards quickly. I can upload a photo and see that photo in a ton of cards. Their Find it Fast(tm) option makes choosing my favorite card much easier.
I love that I can save my favorites. By clicking a tiny heart next to the card, all my favorites are grouped together.
I love the options. I can see the cards I like in a variety of options–color schemes and holiday themes.
I love the sharing. My designs can be saved or shared via social media platforms, emailed, or pinned.
I love the cost. There’s always some sort of super promotion running on their site–you never have to buy cards at full price.
I love that it’s personal. Each design features the artist behind the creation and that I can click on the link to see the other work by that artist.
I love the excitement. There’s always a cool contest going on that lets me in on the newest and most fabulous artists and designers.
I love their blog. The minted blog, julep, is simply. . . rockstar. Great ideas, photos, tutorials–all simple, timely, and worthwhile.
That’s it. Check them out. It’s not too late–and you’ll be glad you did.
And when your cards arrive, put your kids to work like we usually do–create a family-style holiday card assembly line!
fyi: I did receive a handful of minted holiday photo cards in exchange for sharing my love for minted with my readers, but as always, my opinions and ideas are my own, influenced only by my experience as a parent and educator and holiday-card sender.
