our holiday cards with minted

a sneak peek at our holiday cards with minted! | thelovedesignedlife.comWe just got our holiday cards back from Minted and as usual, I am in love! We have been using Minted for our holiday cards the last few years now and I just couldn’t be happier with them.

I’ll be honest, what first drew me to Minted was the fact that they do REAL foil printing. Since then, I have been doing gold foil for the past few years, but this year I finally had a picture that went perfectly with the rose gold I’ve been wanting to try! I had ordered from other online printers in the past, assuming that the digital preview I was seeing was going to arrive with real foil, only to be disappointed. But what has kept me around with Minted is so much more than that! Here is just a few of the convenient new features on Minted that I’m loving now:

  • Find It Fast: Simply upload your family photo, then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs to save time browsing.
  • Buy Now, Personalize Later: Take advantage of a promotional offer now and come back to finish personalizing with photos, text, or addresses later.
  • FREE Address Assistant: They will print your recipient addresses on envelopes – all you need to do is add postage and mail!

I think most of you probably already know how good Minted’s holiday cards are, but just a little side note, did you know they also do customizable and fine art? And also home decor, gifts, and fabric!? I recently also blogged about all the fun things you could use from Minted to spruce up your Thanksgiving table. SO. Many. Options.

    My favorite thing about minted is the quality of their card stock! Some of the other websites don’t turn out feeling that professional, and the thickness/niceness of minted is one you can keep forever and feel proud about! Love minted, and your cards are so pretty!!

    All of the cards for minted online look beautiful! I haven’t sent out holiday cards before, but now that I have my own little family it is definitely something I want to start doing!

    This is amazing!! My favorite card shop ever. What I love most about minted is the range of designs. They have so many styles and they are all gorgeous! ✔️ Basically I doesn’t get any more beautiful then their products.

    I love Minted too! I used them for my wedding invites, birth announcements, & I hope to use them for our family’s first year of holiday cards. The quality of the pictures printed, thickness of the paper, & how they use gold foil (all gold, all the time!) really shows how much better they are then any other company!

    I love the quality of their paper. We got the Minted sample pack recently to pick our wedding invitations and I was really impressed with the paper options.

    What is not to love about Minted?! There cardstock is a beautiful weight in your hand, the foil adds the perfect amount of shine and brilliance to your photos and the option to include a custom note on your holiday card makes them personal and warm. We have used minted the past few years for our holiday cards and would love to use them again!

    I love the beautiful designs they have! And that you can load your picture and see it on all of the previews, that’s an awesome feature.

    I love minted! It’s hard to pick one thing…the free recipient addressing and the fact that they save all the addresses for me is pretty high on the list!
