I absolutely love receiving holiday cards even in this age of facebook and Instagram. It is so wonderful to receive an update from friends and family and pictures from their lives this year. Finding the perfect photo and card and addressing and mailing the cards in this busy holiday season can take up a bunch of your time but it doesn’t have to. Here are 6 reasons why ordering holiday cards from Minted can make your life easier and help you send an amazing holiday card your friends and family will love.
- Once you find your favorite photo or photos Minted makes it easy to see what they would look like on each card. They have a “find it fast” feature that will show your photo on all the available cards. It was easy for me to see which cards would not work with our photo. You can filter by the type of card and the number of photos as well.
- I love to get a little update from friends about their lives this year. I wanted to share a little something on our card as well. I was able to add another picture and a personal paragraph to the back of out card. I love this feature! They even include a few sample paragraphs to get you started which are pictured above.
- Minted will address your envelopes for free and they even have cute fonts that match your card. This is a HUGE time saver. I was able to upload a spreadsheet with all my addresses which made the process super easy.
- The holiday cards at Minted are printed on high-quality paper. Without an extra fee, they are printed on a thick and luxurious stock in an off-white hue with a creamy cotton texture, usually reserved for fine stationery. 120lb, 17 point thickness. There are also options for foil pressed and letter pressed cards. Many of the designs are by independent artists and are picked as part of design challenges. This makes is easy to find a card in a style you love.
- Are you worried you might make a typo when you make your card? Each card is reviewed by a real person for mistakes and a proof is sent to you for review. If you are in a hurry, you can skip the proof , save $10 and receive your cards two days faster.
- Minted offers fast shipping and right now they are even offering a free upgrade to priority shipping. You can check their holiday shipping times here. If you won’t have time to make a Holiday Card, there are tons of great New Year’s Cards that would be great to send. I absolutely love these Year in Review cards. These are so fun.
A big thanks to Minted who sponsored this post and printed our family cards this year. Here is the card we chose. Photo taken by the talented Evan Willingham of Evan Willingham Photography.
I hope that this post inspires you to send out holiday or New Year’s cards this year. I promise that Minted will make is easy for you!
