We Appreciate You: Moms, Dads, & Grads Quickfire Greeting Card Challenge

Now more than ever is a time to celebrate the most important people in your life and to let them know you care. We’re looking to you, our talented community of designers and writers, to come up with fresh designs with creative messages that celebrate moms, dads, and grads for their special days this coming spring. In this challenge, remember to write sentiments ranging from heartfelt to funny, that speak to all types of relationships, from casual to close. We will also be accepting cards from multiple sender types, including from family, from spouse, and from parents.

Don’t forget to include something eye-catching at the top ⅓ of the front of the card so that people will notice it in store (the bottom ⅔ of the front will be hidden behind the next row of cards). Consider even putting your entire copy line in the top ⅓ so that people can read it. Winning designs will be sold under the Minted or Pippa brand names through our retail partners, or under the Minted brand name through our subscription service and retail store.  

We are planning on taking approximately 110 designs in this challenge.

  • Mother's Day: approximately 60 designs
  • Father's Day: approximately 30 designs
  • Graduation: approximately 20 designs
  • You may submit non-foil-pressed and foil-pressed designs to this challenge. Also, we do not have a submission limit in this challenge.


    Critique Period: 8/4 @ 10AM - 8/5 @ 10AM
