mad for minted!

Have you ever used before?  I first discovered minted a few years ago when I received a really great wedding invitation in the mail.  It was one of those invitations that was so fresh-looking, fun, and happy that I immediately flipped it over to see where it was designed. Viola!  I had found minted and was in love! 

Minted is now taking over the paperie world-from adorable invites, to affordable artwork, to awesome day planners.  Oh, what's that you say?  They now use gold foil on many of their items?  Check.

And the best part?  They are designed by a whole slew of designers and voted on by regular ole peeps who like paper!  It really makes for a great variety of designs, all of which feel cutting-edge, trendy and new. (Hint: If you're an artist or designer they hold regular design challenges that are fun and easy to enter!)

A couple things I really love about minted:

1.  They will now ADDRESS YOUR ENVELOPES FOR YOU for FREE!  That's right, no more poor handwriting, crooked lines and hand cramps.  Let minted use their super-cute fonts to make your mail look extra special. 

2.  They have a super cute blog that has tons of great party ideas, like precious these DIY party hats that I want to make right now, today, just because it's Friday.

3.  They have the most precious children's stationary.  I cannot wait to order some of these pink alligator notes for the wee one.  These would be perfect for notes to your child's teacher, or thank you notes, or letters to grandma!  See my favs below!


Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
