I am a fanatic when it comes to their holiday card selection, user-friendly ordering system and unique designs from around the globe. This is my fourth year ordering my cards from minted and every year I continue to marvel at the new products continually added for the holidays! This post today is all about how to create your perfect Minted holiday card along with a special Minted giveaway where three winners have the chance to win a $100 Minted credit to put towards your holiday card or gift order. Oh, JOY!

So before I get started on why I love Minted’s holiday cards, I want to make sure you enter to win $100. All you have to do is CLICK HERE and enter your email address.

Did you do it? Awesome. Now let me tell you a little about why I love ordering my holiday cards through minted!

Black Friday Deal!

Minted’s best deals of the year are going on for Black Friday (extended to 11/27) and includes 20% off all holiday card, gift and art orders of $150 or more or 15% off all orders. Use code BF2016.

Minted “Find It Fast” Feature

By far, my favorite feature of designing holiday cards with Minted is their “Find it Fast” feature, which allows you to filter your holiday card design search depending on different parameters like number of photos, type of card, photo orientation, price, etc. Then, click “On” at the bottom for the Find It Fast feature, and it will populate your photo(s) into a ton of different designs.

I can’t tell you how much this  cuts down on the time spent selecting a design! You can actually see your photo in all the different ones to quickly sift through and find the ones that work.


The Personalization Options are Endless!

When you see a design(s) you like, select “personalize” and you will be taken to a screen where you can further customize your card.

Many of the designs have different color options you can try on, different border choices, zoom options, font choices and options to edit text or wording.  I heart options.  Make sure to keep clicking “save” so you can save some favorites to share for opinions if you wish.

On to the Back!

Once the front of the card is complete, you should be  ready to print, right? WRONG! Minted gives you a ton of personalization and customization options on the back too!

Did you have a hard time choosing a favorite photo for the front? Add some photos on the back! Want to share a few highlights from 2016? Add some text! So many fun choices to make your card special.


The Envelope Please…

But folks, there’s more! Now comes the envelope!

Minted’s Address Assistant and FREE recipient envelope printing is another HUGE benefit to choosing Minted to print your holiday cards. The matching envelope elegance just puts their designs over the top!

A few years back I entered in all my recipient addresses so now when I order my cards, my friends and family’s names come printed FOR FREE in a darling matching design on the envelopes!  Do you know what this means?  I no longer have to get in a fight with my computer printer while attempting to print my own labels! Hallelujah!

After the envelope is gussied up, your design is complete! This year they even have matching POSTAGE designs! Wow.


Our Family’s 2016 Holiday Card

When scrolling through all the designs, this design grabbed me. I love the “Love is All Around” wording, because of the love we have experienced from so many people this year with loss of my beautiful mom.  Love truly has been all around us.

Happy Holidays from my family to yours this season and I hope you have the opportunity to design your own Minted holiday card. Good luck on the giveaway!

love is all around

These darling personalized classroom valentines were ordered through Minted, one of my all time sites to order custom stationery goodies. Minted is a Tiny Oranges Sponsor and I am also an affiliate partner, so all Minted links are affiliate links.

Personalized Classroom Valentines from Minted

Minted, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways….

Your paper stock is swoon-worthy, your designs are one-of-a-kind. I love to add my daughter’s photo, I hope no one will mind.

Your customizing options are many, with backer and shape options too. Even better is your customer service, always happy to talk to you.

Every year I chose you for my Christmas cards, because your company beats others by a mile. Now, your personalized classroom valentines will cause all the students to smile.

Personalized Classroom Valentines 

I can’t believe I busted out a poem. Please forgive me. I am laughing as I type this right now.

AnyHOO, this post is about Minted’s personalized classroom valentines, photo valentines, and foil-pressed valentines that are just the sweetest thing. So sweet they inspired poetry. For reals!

This year, Minted treated me to complimentary valentines for my girls’ classrooms for this post and and I am SO happy with how they turned out.  Since valentines are personal for kids, I let them browse the selections and pick the one they wanted with no input from mom. Hard to do, but they were all so cute I didn’t mind!

My oldest wanted to give a DIY bookmark with her valentines, so she selected this cute Fill in the Blank Classroom Valentine and we edited the first line to go with the bookmark, adding the sentiment “You’re #1 in My Book!” Cute right?

She loved the squiggle shaped border and wanted to keep the back blank to write a note to some of her friends.  We are playing around with making different DIY bookmarks to attach to the front of the envelope.

I love she chose this one for two reasons. 1. In 3rd grade they do a LOT of reading so I LOVE the idea of doing a bookmark. 2. Right now they are learning about parts of speech, so the “write your own adjective” part is fab!

fill in the blank Let’s Chill  

My Kindergartener looked through all the designs and fell in love with the Let’s Chill design. Cute little penguins eating popsicles? Right up her alley.

She wasn’t understanding the “Let’s Chill” wording, so I said, “How about ‘You’re Cool!?” Done. That’s what I love about ordering through Minted – you can customize a ton of things on your cards.

I HAD to add a photo backer on hers, because I think it’s just too cute, so the back has her photo on it (photo credit Kristin Eldridge).

So Many Sweet Options…

Now, back to my love affair with Minted. In short, I find Minted to be one of the best holiday photo card sites for 3 reasons.

1. Quality Products

I appreciate quality stationery, and every Minted card is printed on high quality paper stock (with an option to upgrade to DoubleThick or even TripleThick paper!)

2. Unique Designs

One of the features that makes Minted one of the best holiday photo card sites in their vast selection of unique designs. Minted crowd-sources design and art from a global community of independent designers, then sells their best designs as a result of monthly design challenges. The Minted designers represent 43 companies. I love the variety and eclectic design options this gives the consumer. No cookie cutter products!

3. Customization Options  

I also love Minted for their endless options to customize. After you narrow down your favorite design, you can customize the shape, color, interior options, backer options, text or photo backer options, liners, paper stock and chose a flat, folded or minibook card. You start with a fab design, then tweak it to make it your own. Love.

These are a few of my favorite Minted designs…
