Cyber Monday with Minted Holiday Cards

Disclosure: I received a promo code to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed are my own.

While I'm in a bit of recovery mode post-Thanksgiving weekend, there's one thing I'm proud of myself for handling ahead of schedule: our holiday cards. For the 8th year in a row we're sending out our traditional New Year's cards and while I relish in the fact that I get a bit of extra time sending them out after the regular Christmas card influx, this year Minted's again made it super easy for me to finish them in advance.

Upgrade your holiday cards with foil
Our 2016 Minted New Year's card may have been my favorite yet, but this year might have it beat because of our amazing Boston photoshoot with Third Eye Chic Studio. Minted is a design marketplace which partners with talented global artists to create their high-quality cards with many options for customization - from FREE address concierge service (such a time-saver) to unique diecut shapes and a variety of backer options you can get the exact card you want this season. Since we're new homeowners, I made a sample backer announcing our new address - it was so easy and it allowed me to customize all the text including colors:

All the holiday card options are here and trending this holiday are midnight blues, graphic black & white, botanical wreaths, and glittery foil - the rose gold is especially stunning! For a bit of luxe I'd go with letterpress and another layer of customization with Minted's new offering: customized stamps. Check these out that I mocked up for our cards:
