  • Hi everyone,

    Here's where to come for breaking news at Minted!  We'll try to regularly post news here first.

    To kick this off, we wanted to let you know that Mintie Leslie Hamer, of Unless Someone Like You, has relocated with her family from Chicago to join Minted!

    Leslie will be our Senior Merchandise Designer and will lead the design team that receives and processes all your design files.  You may be familiar with Tim and Robert on our team; they will now be reporting to Leslie.  This hardworking team will be responsible for activities such as making alternate colorways or accessories for your designs when these requests are optional and designers have chosen not to do this work themselves.  Leslie will also be responsible for overseeing the Quality Control process, reviewing designs before they launch to our site.  We're excited that one of you, a Mintie, will now be leading this process, as we think this will help bring a Mintie perspective to what improvements we can make to the process.

    Please join me in welcoming Leslie!

    HUGE congratulations, designers!

  • We’re excited to say that we’re beginning the launch of our 2012 holiday collection today! Huge congratulations to everyone! This year’s collection is absolutely beautiful.

    It will take some time to launch all the designs and to link each design to its designer, so if yours is not up yet or if your name is not next to it, don't worry! It will be soon. We also wanted to let you know that we are experimenting with merchandising and ranking order on our holiday product pages. Designs will actually be entering a period of 'randomization' sometime soon so that we can collect sales data, so please don't be concerned about the initial placement on the page.

    More holiday announcements will be coming soon!


  • Thanks Jen! Do we eventually get to see how our designs scored? :)

  • Hi there! I am new to Minted and am loving the positive creative community you all have here! I just participated in my first Design Challenges and I am wondering  - when does Minted post the results and scores?  I am guessing the file requests for the Quickfire Calendar Challenge went out yesterday - and was hoping the ratings would be posted soon.

    Any help/advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!




  • Hi Ann - welcome to Minted!! Results/Scores are usually a bit of a surprise as to when they are posted. This last challenge was a bit unusual with it's quick voting/file requests/etc. But usually results are posted a few weeks after the challenge ends, and then file requests are sent out shortly after. In the last few challenges, some file requests have been sent out before the results were announced, so that Minted would be able to get those designs launched asap for the holiday season. So it's hard to say when results will be posted - but hopefully soon! :)

  • congrats!

  • Say hello to "Minted's So Special Greeting Card Challenge"! We can’t wait for you to be a part of the billions of greeting cards sent every year. Greeting cards are our most personal products ever and will keep customers coming back to Minted all year round. This is truly a monumental step for you, the Minted design community.

    Think outside the box and create all styles of designs for all types of customers. Take a risk! Put that pun to good use or go ahead and try out that very sentimental thought. In this, our inaugural greeting card challenge, we’ll be seeking a very large number of designs for four collections: Birthday Cards (by far the biggest assortment we’re seeking), with a sprinkling of spring occasions: Mother’s Day cards, Father’s Day cards, and graduation cards. We are seeking a mix of non-photo card designs and photo card designs that allow customers to personalize the card with their photo.

    Check out the prize structure and submit here until Monday, March 4 at 10am PT. We're attempting to take hundreds of designs from this challenge, so you won't want to miss it! (Email to follow soon :) )
