Very First Digital Invitation Challenge: Special Prize Winners

Minted’s customers have been asking for the same high quality design from you, the Minted Community, in digital form – and we can’t wait to offer this product at the end of October! Customers lean towards digital instead of paper for more casual and short-lead events like dinner parties, smaller holidays, and non-milestone birthday parties. We care a great deal about creating more opportunity for you, and digital invitations will present a chance for your designs to serve many more occasions and reach many more customers. Congratulations to all our special prize winners and runners-up!

Moving Announcement Challenge: Special Prize Winners

Moving to a new home is one of the most exciting events in someone’s life, whether it’s a newly married couple settling into their first apartment together, or a growing family moving into a bigger house. Minted customers love fresh, original moving announcements to notify family and friends about their new address. One in six Americans moves every year, and mailing a change-of-address card is a popular tradition. Moving announcements are a large and growing business for Minted, and we were “wowed!” with all of the creative and out-of-the-box designs! Congratulations to all the winners and runner-ups!

They carry the cutest baby and kids’ products—everything from nursery bedding and felt-animal mobiles to play room tents and furniture. Their products are the perfect complement to any Minted party and I had so much fun dreaming up three themed celebrations (featured below): a race car-themed birthday party, baby’s first year, and a birthday party campout.

We also teamed up with them to offer an amazing $500 giveaway exclusively for Julep readers: one lucky winner will score a $250 gift card to Minted + $250 gift card to Restoration Hardware Baby & Child. Click through below to find out how you can win!
