Have you heard of Minted? Minted is an on-line stationery store with independent designers that create every kind of stationery you could imagine. A couple of years back I went to two weddings and both times I received a, “save the date” card. One of them had a photograph of the couple on the “save the date” card and I hung it up on my cork board that I had in my office and everyday I looked up and saw that lovely couple, and every day I anticipated going to their wedding. Minted save the date cards are unique. From quirky to elegant, they have something for everyone to choose from. There are an abundance of choices both in the design itself but also in the weight of the paper, the color of the paper, different silhouette shapes, with lots of interior options and liners and labels.
Of course you can get “save the date” invitations without putting your photograph on the card.
I kept my “save the date” card way longer than the wedding invitation. Aren’t wedding invitations gorgeous! At minted they have on-going design competitions that designers participate in and this is how minted acquires such incredible talent that makes their stationery and invitations so unique, and then you can further customize those designs to make them truly one-of-a-kind.
Designer Tanya Lee from Frooted Designs created this gorgeous wedding invitation “Striped Sweet Nothings.”
Here is an inside view of this minibook invitation.

Also, remember I said that minted has designers from around the world that create their designs, well right now they are having a competition for the category of “birth announcements,” so if you are design savvy you might just want to enter this contest and can do so by going here. It ends January 13,2014 so hurry and enter your best design.
