Minted Personalized Stationery + Giveaway
When it comes time to shop for the perfect announcement, birthday invitation, or wedding suite, it can be hard to navigate through all the choices available. Not only do you want to make sure the price is feasible, but that your personalized stationery truly represents who you are and the aesthetic you're seeking. Minted is just the marketplace for those looking to buy cards, art, and décor created by indie designers worldwide.
Designs are crowd-sourced through various graphic design challenges with the best selections then offered on the site. Both shoppers and designers help curate the site's offerings with their feedback and votes, which ensures that some really fantastic artists get added to the mix.
save-the-dates, but I have several friends who are tying the knot over the next year and this site offers such an easy way to make a beautiful statement. With their wide variety of styles including whimsical, rustic, modern, hand drawn and all out formal, there's really something for every bride.
Not walking down the aisle or birthing a little human? Minted still has plenty to offer that you can either keep for yourself or give as a thoughtful gift. You can personalize gift wrap, wall art, business cards, and pretty journals and customize bunting banners with photos and your own special message. And nurture that love of snail mail writing in your kids by treating them to their own stationery set with their name on it like mom and dad's collection.
GIVEAWAY: Minted is offering one Dry As Toast reader $50 to use in their shop! Just leave a comment letting us know what special moment you'd create personalized paper goods for and a winner will be announced Wednesday, Jan. 8. It's too late to send out proper invites for my own birthday (Jan. 11!), but I've been wanting to send out moving announcements and now that the holiday craziness is over and we're finally settled in, I think it's time to spread the word and our new address in a fun way.
CONGRATULATIONS: Vera Khule is this week's winner!
