For several years now, I have been doing e-cards for Christmas, because that’s what you do when you work in digital marketing, right?
Well, this year, I’m teaming up with Minted to send paper cards! I love receiving mail and am so happy to be going back to mailed cards this year. I think my family and friends will be pleasantly surprised. Minted has such beautiful options that it’s an easy switch for me to use their designs instead of my own. I love that they source the designs from independent artists all over the world.
I had a hard time deciding between foil and letterpress, but ultimately decided on a foil print card.
I love that you have so many options for the back of the card. I chose to do more photos, because it was so hard to pick just one! There are options for a family infographic, text only, and tons of photo layouts.
One of my favorite parts of ordering through Minted is that they do free printing of recipient addresses! So, that means I have nothing to do once they arrive except to send them. Also, the layout of the name and address is so pretty! I love the option I chose, but there are so many nice ones that it was hard to choose. It sets the tone before you even open the envelope. I was able to use a list I had in Google Contacts, export it and easily import the names. One thing that was a problem is that I have many contacts listed separately, like the husband is one contact in my book and the wife another. So, I had to choose one and then in my spreadsheet I changed it to say, for example, Erick & Whitney Anderson. So, once I uploaded my list to Minted, everything was in order.
They also have custom stamps that you can make and use, but I had already bought Christmas stamps, so I didn’t use that option. The whole process was quick and easy, which wasn’t previously the case with paper cards and one reason I stopped doing them. I love that I can get a quality design, a quality product and that they made everything easy for me.
On screen, they looked gorgeous, but once they arrived in the mail, I was blown away. The card is a really nice weight and the foil is beautiful.
With the holidays quickly approaching, Minted makes it super easy to check one more thing off your list.
