New Year Holiday Cards with Minted.

One thing I really wanted to do this holiday season was send out holiday cards (it’s something I had on my 101 in 1001 list.) Originally I wanted to send out Christmas cards, but to be honest, the Christmas holiday season was hectic and overwhelming. The thought of adding another thing to my never-ending to do list was enough to make me go crazy! After I went back and forth on if I wanted to send cards this year, I finally settled on sending out New Year’s cards.

For my New Years cards I chose to use Minted.com. They have a huge selection of holiday cards (including a section specifically for New Year’s holiday cards) and I was so pleased with how each of them turned out! I personally wanted to send out cards to the brands and companies I worked with over the past year to thank them for their support. I chose the Sparkle Cheers card because I loved the simplicity of the card and it had so many different customization options. I even wrote a small paragraph on the back for each brand. As for our family cards, It had been a few years since we had sent out cards as a family, so since me and my sisters (and Dingo!) finally got a good photo together we decided this was the year to send them again. For those cards, we went with the Aglow New Year card because it was such a simple, yet classic design.

One of the features I really liked (but was unfortunately unable to use due to not having everything together) is their free recipient printing. Talk about taking all the work out of sending holiday cards! Next year I will definitely be sure to have all of my addresses together and ready so I can utilize this feature. It’s safe to say I will be using them again for all of my stationery needs (they have so many cute cards!) P.S. Right now they are offering 20% off their New Year cards with code HAPPY2016

    It can be really heart-warming to receive a greeting card in the mail so this service does sound helpful for busy people who still want to give a more personalize tone to their greetings! Thanks for sharing!

    I used their recipient printing for my christmas cards! it was so nice to not have to write all of them out. Also you can make your purchase and add your addresses later, you have until you approve the proof to get your addresses in.

      Yes! I actually opted to go without a proof since I knew everything was spelled correctly & a nice hi-res image was used otherwise I would have done that!
