Designing Beautiful Christmas Cards with Minted

This morning we are having our family photos taken as long as the rain holds off (say a prayer for us please!). I usually plan our session as close to Connor's birthday as possible so we can capture his yearly birthday photos along with the photos we will use on our yearly Christmas card. Yes, Christmas cards. As you all know, Santa Stephanie celebrates Christmas year round so while it's Fall in the air, I have Christmas on my mind. While posing and smiling at the camera this morning, I hope we walk away with at least one Christmas card worthy photo. This year I plan to use Minted for our Christmas cards and I am eager to get our photos back so I can order my cards. The process can be daunting but thanks to Minted designing beautiful Christmas cards is easier than ever before!

Minted as the amazing tool that make finding the perfect holiday card design painless.Their "Find It Fast" option is a super helpful tool to find the perfect holiday card design. Simply upload your photo(s), then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs. This saves a lot of time on individually clicking through and uploading photos to holiday card product pages. 

With other products, I find myself clicking the back button far too often during the process and often times settle on something that I'm just okay with so that I can speed the process up. However, this option allows you to see your photos on card designs that you may have missed had you spent time clicking next over and over again. 

So many times I've seen amazing discounts and deals on holiday cards but don't have photos to use yet to order and take advantage of those savings. Minted has solved this problem with their Buy Now, Personalize Later (BNPL) option. Customers are able to buy holiday cards now and personalize them later once you've received your photographs. Minted just shared their "Early Bird Event" discount. Customers can save 15% with code EARLYBIRD16 when using the BNPL option. Lock in the discount and then come back and personalize and order your cards once you have your photos and have picked the perfect card design for you. 

If I'm being completely honest, the last detail is what really sold me on using Minted this year. Minted offers clients access to their FREE Address Assistant which makes labeling your cards effortless. For me, I could spend an afternoon labeling our cards since we tend to send out 60+ cards each season. With this tool, I can upload my address book and Minted prints addresses on the envelope free of charge. Here is how it works:

Step 4 is music to my ears. The holidays are very busy and I know a handful of friends who never got around to mailing their cards last year because of the work associated with addressing cards. The Address Assistant tool removes that process from holiday cards, getting cards out the door quicker than ever before. 

Minted has such beautiful designs that I'm sure you will find the perfect one for your holiday card this season. Have you had your Fall photos taken yet? Have you started thinking of what type of card you want to send family and friends this year?
