Our Minted Christmas Cards and a $100 Giveaway!

Oh how we wish.  How we wish we could send EACH ONE  OF YOU a Christmas card, because you are our friends and we’d love to share with you how much has happened in our lives this year and how much our children have grown.  We’d tell you how much you mean to us and how YOU have changed our lives so much by following along with us here At The Picket Fence.

Minted Christmas Card Giveaway

Today we’re also giving away a $100 Credit to Minted where you will find the most amazing selection of printed pieces for celebrating every special occasion in your life.

One of the things we love most about this company is their desire to showcase the talent of artists and designers from around the world and to provide a uniquely personal shopping experience. These aren’t your ordinary cards and invitations folks!

Minted Christmas Cards Giveaway 2013

Not only is everything printed on the highest paper quality, you also have the option of customizing your pieces in unique formats and ways we had never experienced elsewhere.

The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to choosing your Christmas Cards. From Foil-Stamped Holiday Cards to Christmas Postcards to Petite Holiday Cards there are so many options for sending holiday wishes to your family and friends.

We both decided to go with the tried and true Photo Cards this year. But these are no ordinary photo cards!

Take a look at how many options you have when you go to place your order:

Minted Cards Giveaway 2013

One of our favorite things is the ability to upload an image and actually see it in the cards as you are deciding on your favorite one! It really helps you visualize how your photo will look and saves a ton of time!

We also loved the ability to input our recipient addresses and have Minted print them on the envelopes….for free! Talk about a timesaver!

Once you have created your card or invitation and uploaded your address, Minted will take customer service a step further by sending you a proof to approve before your cards are printed! That way you can avoid those spelling errors that seem to always slip their way in there…grin!

We love the ability to have the back printed with a letter or photos or a letter and photos! The choices are endless! Here’s an up close look at our cards that we chose this year.  We love how they reflect our individual style and are cohesive with our family photos:
