I promised you an update on our holiday cards from Minted and here it is! I think these are my favorite Christmas cards in the 22 year history of my little family and I’m thrilled that friends and family will be finding them in their mailboxes soon.

The MamaZone: Minted Ornament Shaped Holiday Cards

I went for the Pines and Swirls Holiday Ornament Cards and I really like how they turned out. It was hard to narrow down my favorite, but I knew I wanted one of their ornament shaped cards and these did not disappoint.

There are a number of options available for this card (and all of their other cards) to help you get things just right. Choose from six different colors, three different types of paper and “Holiday” or “Christmas” in the text. You can also customize the back of the card by choosing from white, solid color or a patterned background and, while I didn’t add a photo, you have the option of adding a small photo, a full-bleed photo or text to the back as well. Some of these options increase the price of your cards, but it’s all clearly noted as you complete the personalization process.The MamaZone: Minted Ornament Shaped Holiday Cards

Before I let you go, holiday cards aren’t the only thing I grabbed at Minted. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’d been looking for a way to commemorate all the states we’ve lived in (we’ve moved around a lot!) and these state-shaped custom photo art prints are AWESOME!

I selected 8″x8″ versions of each state. It’s one of six sizes available with the largest being 44″x44″. You can purchase the prints unframed or choose from eleven classic frames or six specialty frames for an additional charge. You can also upgrade from Standard Plexi Glass & Materials to UV-Plexi Glass & Archival Materials for an extra fee.

It was a little tricky to find the perfect photo for each slot, but the website was very easy to use and there are guides to help you determine the photo shape that will best fit each slot (landscape, portrait or square). Here’s a quick peek at the process:

The prints turned out great and they make the perfect family Christmas gift. I could not have been more pleased with our order and Minted is now on my list of favorite places to shop. They offer beautiful, high-quality products that I’m sure you love. Check them out and if you decide to order, pop back and leave a comment or chime in on The MamaZone’s Facebook page to let me know.
