Minted.com Giveaway~ in honor of Mother's Day


I'll be posting next week about where this lovely french document came from!

A Mother's Day Tribute!

A Special Giveaway


Minted. is sponsoring a very generous giveaway in honor of Mother's Day.
Minted is giving away one set of 50 free personalized stationary cards
to one lucky reader. The winner gets to choose their own design! There are a lot of wonderful designs to choose from!
A value of $92.00.

You will find the giveaway information at the bottom of the post!

Minted is a great stationary company. They carry stationary that can be customized for almost any event, weddings, baby showers, and anniversaries, just to name a few. You can create a one of a kind card for almost any holiday. They have many unique designs to choose from. You can choose a set of personalized stationary that has a beautiful graphic design, or one that has a place to add a photo of you and your child or someone special. You could also use their personalized stationary for your blog or etsy site. It would be a great personalized card to send out with an etsy order.

When designing your card you have many different fonts and colors to choose from. They let you customize your card to represent your own unique style. I love this about Minted.

One other thing that is unique about them is they have a design challenge. Are you a graphic designer waiting to be discovered? If so you might want to consider entering their design challenge. Their stationary designs are created from artists all around the world.


I used Minted to create my Christmas Cards last year. I was able to create a unique photo book with my own photos I had taken of my kids. I was very happy with the finished product. I look forward to using Minted this year to create my Christmas Cards.
I am a happy Minted.com Customer!

I took some pictures of a few great examples of Minted's personalized stationary!

You will notice some of the samples have a neat graphic design while others have a place to add a sweet personalized photo as well.
They have a wide range of colors and new designs to choose from.
I think their designs bring a fresh new look to stationary.
Their cards are printed on high quality card stock.
































This design is my personal favorite



This is just a small sampling of what Minted has to offer, there are many more wonderful choices on their website!

Here is The giveaway Information
