I’m New Here! Birth Announcements Challenges: Special Prizes

banner

Announcing the Special Prize winners of our I’m New Here! Non-Foil-Pressed Birth Announcements Challenge and I’m New Here! Foil-Pressed Birth Announcements Challenge!

New parents come to Minted to help share the most exciting of news with friends and family – the birth of their little one! Parents most often care about showcasing a photo of their baby as the central focus of the birth announcement.

We looked to our talented Minted community of artists to create unique, modern designs as special as this cherished milestone.

Congratulations to all of our winners!
