The weather outside might not be frightful, but at Minted, we are always delightfully in the holiday spirit. All 365 days a year. We just launched our Annual Holiday Design Challenge and boy is this going to be the best challenge to date! We are going to have holiday card designs like you’ve never seen before this year and now we want to see your photographs.
Sometimes you come across a photo-card that makes you literally stop in your tracks. A gorgeous photograph paired with a stunning card design produces one result – perfection.
Minted is inviting customers and fans to submit their photos for a chance to be showcased in our brand new holiday collection on minted.com. Families, children, couples, grandparents, pets – all are welcome. A variety of photographs will be selected, and if yours is chosen, you will receive a $200 credit for Minted flat or fold-over Holiday Cards, plus a generous Friends and Family discount so that you can share the love with your closest friends. In addition, we will also be picking the top photographer and featuring them on the Minted blog. Submission has been extended to Monday, May 16, 2011 at NOON PST.
The photo cards will be heavily promoted in our advertising this holiday season, so if you have always thought your child was the cutest one on the block, here is your chance to prove it. See the winners of the previous Top Model Contest in our holiday assortment.
