I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for a new year to begin, 2016 has been a very weird year, especially now that he who shall not be named is about to be the American President, so scary (and I’m in Canada!). What I’m getting at here is that we all need to focus on spreading joy, happiness and being kind to one another. What better time to do it than at Christmas! The holiday season is pretty much here and I’ll be spreading joy with customized Christmas cards that I’ll be printing through Minted.com. I’ve done this for 2 years now and every year I’m super impressed with the quality and selection of designs.
If you don’t already know, Minted is a design marketplace of independent artists from around the world. They are known for high-quality paper and printing. Their signature paper is thick and luxurious with a creamy cotton texture that has been optimized for photo printing. You can choose from 100% recycled paper, pearlescent paper which adds a subtle shimmer, double thick paper or even triple thick paper. Minted also offers postcards, ornament cards and 8 unique die-cut shapes. There’s a variety of backer options that allow you to customize your designs with photos and text.
I know you’re probably thinking, but you are a graphic designer, why aren’t you creating your own card designs? Well the answer is simply: time. I’d rather focus on client work, so I’m more than happy to use the beautiful designs that Minted has to offer and customize it with my own words. It also feels great supporting independent designers.
I’m all about sparkle this season, Minted has lots of metallic foil options that will make your cards feel super fancy! I also love that you can do custom addressed envelopes, making mailing of your cards so much faster!
