Season’s Greetings

This year has been a whirlwind. We’ll hold off on the year-end recap for now, but 2009 was such a remarkable year, it’s worth pausing and saying thanks to all of our incredibly supportive and enthusiastic customers and designers around the world. Wishing you and your loved ones much rest and happiness in the new year.

Season’s Greetings, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year,

The Team at Minted

It’s not too late!

If you’re like most of us and haven’t had a chance to come up for air amidst the craziness of the holiday season then you might not have gotten to checking Christmas cards off your to-do list. Not to worry: New Year photo cards are the perfect way around rapidly approaching Christmas and Hanukkah deadlines. And this way you can take your time addressing them and even writing personal notes. Here are a few of our favorites:

I like how this one really emphasizes the new year: 2010!

Busy Times!

As you can imagine, it’s been a busy December for Minted. We’re thrilled that so many people have taken notice of our great design and we’re seeing more and more Minted cards on other’s mantles.

Our recipe Minibook cards were featured in Food & Wine magazine as a fun gift idea.



The Early Show also showcased our Minibook cards featuring their anchors.





And, finally The San Francisco Chronicle, our hometown paper, included Minted in their holiday card trend story.

Didn’t they do such a cute job making our cards into a pretty wreath?!


A busy day for Minted!

Yesterday was a very exciting morning for Minted. We had our first television debut on the Early Show, followed just an hour later by a feature on the Today Show. Apparently our personalized stationery and new skinny-wrap™ address labels are a huge hit!

Minted on the Early Show

The word is getting out! Minted’s personal stationery was featured this morning on the Early Show in a guide to holiday gifts for $50 and less. Amy Goodman, a senior editor at All You magazine, was very excited to share both our affordable gift price point and how we source our designs from an international community of designers. Early Show anchor Harry Smith commented on how nice it is to find a personal note amidst all of your bills and junk mail.
