planning our holiday cards with minted {and a giveaway!}

one of my favorite things about the holiday season is sending and receiving holiday cards. i love selecting the perfect photo{s} to share with our friends and family and running to the mailbox every day after thanksgiving to see which cards came that day.

we have used minted to send our holiday cards since before we even became an official family. i thought it would be fun to share the cards of our chistmas past as we start to gear up for the holidays this year. p.s. if you read all the way to the bottom there is a very special giveaway!

2013: this photo was from our honeymoon in cabo. ken had me on a strict budget after the wedding so we couldn’t afford to add a fancy backer 😉

 

minted has so many amazing card options this year and i’ve already started planning ours! minted makes planning and sending your holiday cards so easy it’s something you can accomplish within just a few hours or less – promise! here are a few of my favorite minted features.

  • their find it fast option is a super helpful tool to find the perfect holiday card design. simply upload your photo, then watch as it appears in hundreds of different holiday card designs. this saves a lot of time and helps you easily visualize which layouts your photo will look best in.

  • they offer the option to buy your holiday cards “now” and then personalize them later, whenever you have time. this is super helpful if you just have a few minutes here and there to search for and customize your cards. you can take advantage of a promotional offer and come back to finish personalizing your card with photos, text, or addresses “later”, even after the promotion has expired. i’m all about finding the best deal!
  • their FREE address assistant makes addressing holiday cards so easy. you just upload or type in your addresses and they are addressed on your envelopes FOR FREE. talk about a time saver! i actually use my minted address assistant all year long whenever i’m sending mail to friends and family.

so what are we planning for this year? well, we haven’t taken our photos yet but here are just a few options i’m loving.
