When it comes to birth announcements, there are so many companies with so many designs to choose from. This time around I tried out a new company (new to me) and I am very pleased! Our birth announcements (that I successfully mailed off by the time Little Fox was one month old) are from Minted and I couldn't be happier.
We chose the
and I couldn't be more pleased! While
offers stationary that may be priced a tad above some companies, their designs are chic, one of a kind and timeless. I love how modern the designs are with touches of gold foil and even some boho touches that are perfect for today's modern mama. The quality of the card is top notch as they are thick and beautiful. What I also loved about these cards, is that the envelope that is included with it is super thick. I know my announcements that I've invested in are going to safely arrive crisp and perfect to my family and friends.
Designing my card on
was easy peasy, as was scrolling through the many designs that they offer. There's numerous options for the back of the card and for a small amount you can choose from several different designs to place on the back of your card. For the main card (the front), there's usually 2-3 color options per design and there is a variety of cards to choose from with a variety of photo placement options. Even if you are not a computer savvy person, it is very easy to navigate and design.
Something that is unique about Minted is that once your order is placed, you received a virtual proof within 24 hours that you can then again check over to make sure it is correct. I really like this because it gives you a break from staring at it on the computer; which can help you catch small mistakes that you may have missed before. Once the proof is approved, your order will arrive very quickly (mine arrived several days before it was expected to). Another extra touch is that the packaging of your product arrives much more personalized and even a tad bit prettier than getting just a regular ole' box in. You also get a note from the designer of your actual card, which is a special touch!
With modern designs, an easy to design card and fast shipping, I am very pleased with our cards! I'd highly recommend
to you for your stationary and photo needs. Make sure to check them out and see all of the beautiful things they have to offer as they are more than just a stationary company.
