Welcome to the World! Birth Announcement Challenge

One of the highlights for new parents is announcing the birth of their baby. The unveiling of all the precious details is almost as memorable to family and friends as it is to the parents themselves.

We are significantly refreshing our birth announcement assortment this year, so we will be taking a large number of designs from this challenge. The competition will be stiff, so make sure to "wow" us with your creativity!

In particular, we are looking for designs that highlight Minted's unique features, including die-cut shapes, curvilinear text, and real foil-pressing. If you are a parent, think about the announcement you would have wanted to use -- and don't forget that 50% of children born are boys!
