Announcing the special prizes from our Winter Wishes Non-Photo Holiday Card Challenge! Whether you’re an artist, illustrator, typographer or graphic designer, we looked to our talented community to create non-photo cards where the design is hero. Minted customers gravitate towards unique illustrations, fresh design trends, clever twists on greetings, and die-cut shapes that will make his or her card stand out from the pack. In this challenge, we were looking for designs across a wide range of styles and colors, from modern and bold to classic and traditional.
Congratulations to all the winners!
