Cupid is on his way! Before we know it, Minted customers will be sending Valentine cards to share some much needed love with family and friends. These cards can be used in lieu of the more traditional Christmas or Holiday card and/or as a fun way to announce special news like the birth of a child or recent wedding. Businesses even use these cards to show thanks to loyal customers and clients. We are looking to you, our talented community of artists, to continue to push the boundaries of Valentine card design and bring a broad range of styles to our diverse customer base. We are seeking mostly designs that incorporate a customer’s photo, but will also be taking a select number of non-photo Valentine’s Cards.
We are accepting both non-foil and foil-pressed designs, however the majority of designs selected will be non-foil. We are excited to share that our NEW foil colors, strawberry and amethyst, will be available for this challenge. We encourage you to use these in your foil submissions. Also, don’t forget about our existing foil options: red, rose gold, gold, silver, glittery gold, glittery silver, ice blue, bronze, black.
As always, we recommend focusing on quality over quantity and using polling and peer critique to not only narrow down the designs you submit but also improve the quality of your work. We encourage you to take risks, try new things, and submit a diversity of work! Please avoid submitting iterations of the same designs and try to submit work that is differentiated from what we currently sell on our site.
Holiday is one of the main categories that can earn you a spot in our CMYK Program.
Critique Period: 10/13 @ 10AM - 10/14 @ 10AM
