It might seem odd for a blogger to say, but I love paper. Print magazines, real books, and stylish stationery are things I just can’t imagine giving up. And so I am a firm believer in sending holiday cards, though admittedly not always organized enough to do them early. With Hanukkah coming a full month before Christmas this year (we celebrate both), though, I’m feeling a little more pressured to get them out earlier. And, there are usually great deals from the online stationery sites to reward you for planning ahead. Minted.com is one of those sites, and has just launched this year’s holiday collection.
They asked us to take a look, and I quickly found a dozen or so photo card designs that I love. And unlike other places that offer a token one or two Hanukkah cards, Minted offers 75 designs, from the sophisticated to the casual.
How cute is that holiday cookie exchange invitation?
Minted offers special touches, like pressed foil for a glittery touch, and allows you to use multiple pictures if you just can’t narrow it down to one. They have a unique “Find it Fast” tool that lets you upload a photo and quickly see it in multiple designs.
And Minted designers personally review your cards and send a digital proof to ensure they look right before being printed — a definite advantage over those self-serve photo machines. I love their mini-books, too, for those times when you have a lot to share.
If you order from Minted.com by Monday, November 11, you can enjoy $25 off + free ground shipping on holiday card orders with code JOY25FS. Or check out their offers section for the latest discount.
Disclosure: I received a credit from Minted to facilitate this review. As always, all opinions are my own. I have ordered and received Minted cards in the past and they are truly high quality and well designed.
