For many Minted customers, Christmas is not only a festive time of the year but also a meaningful celebration of their faith. They seek a card that incorporates symbols of Christianity in beautiful, fresh and hip design.
In the 2018 Religious Photo Card Challenge, we looked for faith-centric photo card designs with Christian sentiments, scripture greetings and iconography. We encouraged artists to create religious designs across a broad range of styles, and we’re thrilled with the results.
Congratulations to all the winners!
