Minted & A Giveaway

I am so excited to share this amazing site with all of you today!

From their website:
Minted is a global community of independent graphic designers and an online store that prints and sells the best of their designs in the form of paper goods.
We believe that great design lives and thrives in the hands of indie designers that people may not have access to through traditional retailers. Our goal is to use technology to allow our community to discover the work of great designers from all over the world. And at the same time, create a place where designers can get exposure and build their careers. Minted holds monthly design challenges for stationery, invitations, calendars, and other categories and all graphic designers are invited to enter. The Minted community selects the best designs in a highly competitive process, which gives us a top selection of the freshest, finest cards in the world. Winning designers earn cash prizes, a place in the Minted collection, and commissions on all sales of their designs.

Now, let's pretend, just for a moment, that I get to plan my own wedding all over again.
First on my own agenda was choosing an invite. What a struggle that was. 
I didn't want your "typical" invite. I preferred something different. Unique. 
And so, I ended up sourcing a customized art print, doing it in card format and then separately printing the invite portion inside.
Pretty, but not without a lot of hassle. 
Enter minted's wedding invite section. 
I seriously would have had a hard time narrowing down my choices.
Maybe why I spent far too much time admiring all of the inspiration boards found here
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Gorgeous non?
I love that you can order a few samples of your choice for just $1 each and that Minted will credit you back this amount if and when you decide to move forward with your invite order.
Foolproof.

I also just adore all of the custom art prints available.
Any {or all!} of these would look just perfect in Ms. Ava's room.
And last, but certainly not least, the personalized stationery collection? 
Amazing. 
I may or may not have ordered the bottom right set for myself. Love. 
The site also offers an incredible party decor section that you do not want to miss! 
The folks at Minted have graciously offered my readers a chance at a $75 credit to the site. 
Good luck! 



P.S. Ms Ava is participating in a Joe Fresh & Today's Parent cover photo contest. Click top right for more info. Just takes a moment to vote and you can only vote once! 
Thanks so much.
