I am notorious for sending my holiday cards out late. Every year I swear this will be the year I send them out with time to spare and every year I fall back into bad habits. This year we are sending out our cards this week so there is a chance they will actually make it to people before Christmas Day – hoorah!
Just like last year we got our holiday cards from Minted, which is an online California-based company. They were kind enough to send me a gift card to create our own holiday cards which was super generous! So how does it work?
You start with a design and then you can add personal family photos, text and colours to make them totally unique. Each design is created by an independent artist so you know a lot of thought and care went into each one. Their cards are not cheap though, the ones we ordered would cost $86 US for 25 cards. While we wouldn’t buy these every year it was fun to customize these cards for our first holiday season in Portland, Oregon.
We decided to go with one of their foil-stamped cards which came out beautifully and we were able to customize the text on the front to include our new home – Portland!
For the holidays they also include free mailing addresses on all envelopes! So the envelopes come with the addresses printed on them plus these adorable little tree designs that match the cards. Such a cute little detail!
They have so many holiday cards to choose from. You can add your own photos or you can use one of the beautiful designs by a Minted artist. Here are just a few of my favourites!
