minted review + a giveaway!

i've loved minted ever since i stumbled across them a few years ago.

so when they contacted me to do a review of their site, i was pretty excited to share it with you, because i know you'll love them too. it was so fun looking at all the different products they offer, but with a certain little lady turning one next month and a move on the near(ish) horizon, i may have spent quite a bit of time in the kids and art prints sections. and i might want all of these:

1. sweet splash birth announcement 2. botanical affair children's birthday party invitation 3. change limited edition art print 4. hello friend personalized stationary 5. botanical affair children's party decor 6. autumn limited edition art print 7. follow the leader journal 8. the pointillist journal

disclaimer: i am not pregnant. but that announcement is too perfect, so i included it anyway. 

minted.com is a clean, easy website to navigate, and the presentation of their products makes perusing quite enjoyable. their focus on high quality papers, inks and printing processes sets them apart from many of the other online paper retailers, and their products are beautiful as a result. i really do love a good quality paper. it may be a serious weakness in this house (and if you know my husband, you'll know exactly what i'm talking about :)).

and the biggest reason i've been such a fan for so long is their focus on supporting the independent design community. here's a little bit more about how they do this, in their own words:
Minted crowd-sources design and art from a global community of independent designers, then sells their best designs as fine products such as stationery, wall art, and décor for the home, holidays, and occasions. Minted was an early pioneer of crowdsourcing product design and has held open art and graphic design challenges monthly since 2008. All designers and artists are welcome to enter our open challenges. Designers collaborate on our community platform and provide peer critiques that improve both designers and designs over time. Consumers and designers curate Minted's product assortment by voting on the entries to each challenge, ensuring that the best designers and designs are surfaced and represented on Minted. Minted produces and sells the winning designs, paying the designer a commission on every sale.
and now for the fun part. minted is offering a lucky winner a $25 gift card to their site. they also have a few deals going on over there, so be sure to check it out! enter below (the giveaway is live until january 31), and good luck!

congratulations to our winner, jamie!
