Minted at the National Stationery Show

Phew, I”m back from walking miles up and down the aisles at the National Stationery Show in New York and wanted to share pictures from the trip.  It was exciting to see our friends from Elum, Dauphine Press, Wiley Valentine, The Happy Envelope, Mr. Boddington’s Studio, Egg Press, Paper + Cup, and more showing fabulous new letterpress wedding invitations and letterpress stationery.

One of the most exciting parts of the trip was gathering our community of designers together.  After seeing each other as small thumbnail photos on the Minted website for so long (and me as a profile cameo, it was pointed out by Amy Fontes – OK, I’ll change it), it was an unforgettable experience to meet everyone in 3D.  My impression was that new friendships were made and designers were helping each other navigate the show – the supportiveness we all see online came through in person as well.  Thank you to all the designers who attended our cocktail party at Bottino’s and took the time to give Annie and me great suggestions.

Minted in San Francisco Magazine

san-francisco-magazine

There are some people who really understand the creative community behind Minted, and Natasha Sarkisian, the Managing Editor of San Francisco Magazine, is one of those.  Here’s an excerpt from a feature written on Minted in the May issue:

“Minted’s designers run the gamut from industry stalwarts, like Wiley Valentine and Petaluma-based Dauphine Press, to stay-at-home moms.  Like the photography community on Flickr, Minted also offers plenty of room for comments, so designers gain valuable feedback from their peers.”

I can’t find the article posted online, so you’ll have to buy the magazine on the stands!

Spring Stripes Wedding Invitations by Kerry Doyle

As you know, back in October we launched a design challenge on behalf of a “major wedding magazine” that asked for beautiful spring green-and-white invitation designs. The secret has now been revealed – that magazine was Martha Stewart Weddings! The magazine’s editors worked exclusively with Minted to design the challenge theme. They chose Spring Stripes Wedding Invitations, by Kerry Doyle, out of the 237 submissions to the challenge, to feature in this month’s Spring issue. Please congratulate Kerry when you have a chance – you can leave a comment for her on her design studio page.  The design is now for sale on our site.
