Can you believe we’re in the middle of November already? The holidays are fast approaching and, with that, my favorite tradition: holiday cards. My mom takes them (way too) seriously, and I have somehow inherited the same obsession. Even with social media readily available, I love flipping through the cards my family receives every year.
When we took a family photo with the pups this fall, I knew we had a winning holiday card photo on our hands. I’m excited to be partnering with Minted on this post to show you how cute our cards turned out!
Using Minted makes it so easy to get the best holiday card possible. They have so many ridiculously cute designs available, no matter what you’re looking for. Sweet designs for families. Funny ones for dogs. Christmas cards. And if you’re running behind this year, New Year’s cards.
To find the perfect card quickly, you can upload your photo and use the “Find It Fast” feature. It’s so helpful because you can see right away what card is going to look the best. It’s actually how I found the card we selected.
Gar and I sent out cards last year for the first time, and the most tedious part was collecting addresses. I put together a Google form and sent it to friends and family via social media to collect addresses, and then I uploaded the spreadsheet into Minted’s Address Assistant! (You can also use a special link they create for you to send out and collect.) With the Address Assistant, you can have the addresses automatically printed on the envelopes (game changer), and they’re there year after year.
I went through this year and updated a couple of addresses of friends who had moved, but other than that it was a breeze.
As I played around with designs, I’d save different versions in my account and then come back to tweak and add personalization. Even when you choose your card, there are so many different ways to make it “yours.”
After picking out the cards, I got matching envelopes with coordinating liners, and even custom stamps with the same theme. I’ve never been more excited to send cards out!!!
