It’s Minted’s biggest and most influential stationery challenge of the year the annual Holiday Card Challenge! Our customers say that their jaws drop when they get a Minted card in the mail. That’s exactly the effect we were looking for from you, our immensely talented Minted Community, and wow did you deliver! A huge congrats to all the winners!
This year, for the first time ever, we announced the First Time Winner Holiday Collection Award. We awarded an artist with the opportunity to launch a line of holiday cards on Minted.com to a designer who has never won a Minted challenge before.
Congrats, Colleen Tracey! We will choose 2 more holiday card designs from Colleen for a total collection of 5 holiday cards launched on Minted.
