A few weeks ago, Minted sent samples of some of their Christmas cards to me. I’ve always been curious about the quality of the paper products themselves, having admired many of the designs online.
I like Minted’s business model. It is an online store that sells the work of independent graphic designers all over the world. Designers receive cash prizes when they win submission contests and a commission on all sales of their designs.
I am impressed by the quality of the card stock. It isn’t flimsy, and the print quality is nice as well. The designs sent to me are cute — my favorite being the Overflowing Joy Holiday Photo card. Its simplicity is elegant.
My only disappointment is with the back of the cards. The design on the back is cute, but the placement of the Minted logo seems like an ill-placed afterthought.
If you are still in need of holiday cards, Minted seems like a good way to go if want something personalized. But you may need to get rush shipping at this point.
