Getting Minted


Because my mom is a graphic designer who worked in print production and my dad worked for a newspaper, growing up I had a strong appreciation for the printed page. I love testing different paper stocks and the art of fonts and the nostalgia of stationary in an increasingly digital age. I am a sucker for the sentiment of beautifully designed paper products and I believe that they have the power to make things stand out, whether it's a business card or an invitation. Both of which, by the way, I happen to be in the market for.

I have been considering getting blogger business cards for some time now and am also ready to start shopping for baby shower invitations for two of my adorable besties, Bonney and Lou, that are welcoming their firstborn this year. So when I heard about minted I decided to check out what they have to offer and I was immediately taken with their site and beautiful designs.

From Valentine's Day cards to calendars to Save the Dates to art prints, minted has a pretty huge selection of paper goods all with designs from independent artists. Not to mention, they have a wide variety of customizable options like borders, paper stock and colors. I've been browsing their baby shower invites and these are the ones I like the best so far.

To me, minted means not having to sacrifice originality or design for quality paper products... there, it seems you can get them both. I'm excited to try minted and I think the shower guests will be excited to receive one of these gorgeous invites as well.

What do you think? Have you ever used minted before?
