Minted: Stylish Personalized Baby Shower Invitations and Birth Announcements + A $65 Minted Gift Certificate Giveaway!


I love Minted for the most adorable, one-of-a-kind, fresh designs in personalized cards! They carry beautiful invitation cards for all occasions, personalized stationery cards and paper gifts that are truly fun and unique!

Recently, they've updated their Baby and Kids collections of baby shower invitations, birth announcements, birthday invitations and more.

My younger sister Lourdes just had a baby girl a few weeks ago and I told her to check out the modern birth announcements at Minted. Here's a cute one I picked for her. She loved it!



What I love about Minted is that their card designs were all done by creative indie designers from different parts of the world. Minted holds monthly design challenges for stationery, invitations, calendars, and other categories and all graphic designers are invited to enter. The Minted community then selects the best designs in a highly competitive process, which tells me one thing: they take their cards very seriously. I have ordered holiday photo cards from Minted before and they are really beautiful and of amazing quality!

Minted has been featured on The Today Show and The Early Show and in Martha Stewart Living, Fortune, GigaOm and other consumer and business media. InStyle magazine named Minted the "Best of the Web" in stationery in 2010, and Real Simple magazine wrote in 2009 that Minted is their 'favorite resource for personalized holiday cards'.

So check out Minted.com today for exclusively designed personalized cards and invitations that truly speak from your heart!
