green gift guide: minted {luxe, eco-friendly holiday cards $100 gift certificate}

Minted is unlike other online store where you can purchase christmas cards, birth announcements, invitations and save the dates. Minted is an online paper goods store made up of a global community of sophisticated graphic designers who compete in monthly challenges to come up with fresh, original and indie designs. The winners of the challenges {which are determined by community votes – including you if you’d like to vote!} will then see his/her designs live on for consumers to purchase.

For example  – here are a couple of Annie Clark’s  {a mint designer from San Fransisco} winning holiday designs:

Minted uses fine paper stock, rich inks, and crisp printing methods. Quality is an obsession for them . The proof? All their products are backed with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Check out the difference in paper thickness from Minted vs. the competition:

Luxe papers, indie designs, modern and contemporary styling…what else could you want for holiday cards? How about Photo Holiday Cards?  Mini-book cards? Photocalendars? Yearline cards? Wait, what’s a yearline card you ask? It’s probably the most original idea and something I NEED to do asap!! Minted’s high-quality holiday Yearline cards were created exclusively for Minted by their talented community of independent designers. Each of their modern holiday cards are fully customizable with up to five family photos and accompanying storylines. Tell the story of your family’s year in photos. How cool is that compared to the ‘ol yearly family letter??!!

Minted offers a offer a luxurious 100% recycled paper option for those of us who prefer to give green cards that aren’t made with a) yucky textured paper but it’s okay because it’s eco-friendly {no thanks!} or b) super thin recycled paper that curls and won’t stand up straight on the fireplace mantle. At Minted you get the thick,  luxe, fancy paper you want while still keeping things eco-friendly.
