Birth Announcements Challenge: Special Prize Winners

New parents come to Minted in search for a birth announcement that is just as unique and special as their newborn baby. We looked to you, our talented Minted community, to deliver the most creative and fresh designs our customers have ever seen! We looked for a wide range of styles, from traditional and classic to modern and contemporary. We were blown away with the submissions we received in this challenge. Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up!

We’re thrilled to share the guest judge for this challenge, Jacqui Saldana from Baby Boy Bakery, selected Susan Brown’s And More design for our Guest Judge Award.
