Disclaimer: I was offered a product credit in exchange for my post regarding Minted.com, but the truth is, had I found it before they found me, I would’ve blogged about it… that’s how cool it is… and hey! That’s why they reach out to bloggers because they need more people to know about them!
So, it seems as if I do more internet research in the fall and as we approach Christmas… and by internet research, I really mean I look to see what I want and where I can get it at a better price before publishing my list on the interwebs (which, honestly, doesn’t appear that it’s made it any easier for the hubs to buy for me.)
When the fine folks at Minted.com reached out to me, I did what I usually do.. I went to their website and then promptly began drooling over all the amazing stuff they had there.
Because I like a pretty design. On anything.
And that’s what Minted.com has.
However, there’s more.
(Just like the infomercials!)
Minted.com isn’t just a company that has a few design artists on staff that push out designs. (Which is fine, don’t get me wrong, but…) Minted.com is a marketplace for independent artists…and I LOVE that concept.
They’ve recently launched some new lines including the art… (Little known fact, I actually love to look at art, but don’t always “get it”)
A few of my favorites are (Click on the picture to go right to the page… you can even “try on ” frames… )
And for my Sisterhood of Stepmoms?
We don’t own any art in our house (unless you count the pictures of our kids because, let’s be real, they are art!) but in looking more around the site I came across these map gifts.
We’re proud of where we’re from and I could see something like this hanging on our walls… (How cool is this?)
Obviously, our children would be in there and not that insanely photographic family… because you have the ability to upload photos and put them in there and customize it.
And oh how I wish I sent Christmas cards. I don’t normally. I love to write Christmas cards, but addressing them? Not my forte. ButMinted.com has an option where they will address them for you.. (and so much better than I could ever do!) And if I’m reading their website correctly, it’s free.. which is worth every bit of the cost of the card. Because they would actually get mailed.
It’s really cool when you upload a photo (or six) and use their find it fast option… you can get a preview of what your picture would look like in the card… (and there are TONS of options!)
So, if you’re looking for a great personalized gift, or a place to order your Christmas cards, all while supporting independent artists, check out Minted.com. (They also have journals, stationary, announcements, and all kinds of other neat stuff… I spent WAY too much time on the site looking around, falling in love with so many things…)
