I actually really love the original, without the personalization. It might be worth shooting an email to designers@minted.com to see if they have a ruling on whether a non-personalized design is kosher! Or maybe try a personalized design where the personalization is just a small signature line or initials, and the focus stays on the pattern. Sometimes less is more...

I strongly dislike the darkness of the lines in A. I prefer B's white lines that easily carry me from each image to the next but it's hard to say if it's truly better than C. C is a more passive design but maybe that subtlety is the better choice? I am still with B and its' boldness but if you decide you want it to be more subtle I'd choose C.

I personalized it by adding photos and a family name and greeting, now which option should I choose? ;)

A. I miss the all gold background pattern, the design would be less busy.

Hi Hayley, that is a difficult call, I love the design the way it is but I fear it will need some personalization. Cheers, Robin

Yes, it definitely need personalization since that is what will set Minted's paper apart from what you can buy at a retail store.
