Did you read this New York Times article about the end of the traditional business card? If you’re not ready to say bye bye to the paper business card yet, fear not. We have scouted a really cool way to bring a little “web 2.0” to your business card that showcases your tech savvy side.

There’s no way I could survive a week without my girlfriends… it really is true that men just don’t need to talk as much as we do! While it’s fun to go out on the town, it’s not as easy to really catch up in a crowded bar. Nor is it that economical or productive, which is why I love having girls over for a night IN!Comments Off on A girls night IN.
Father’s Day is around the corner… and wouldn’t it be nice to not have to scramble for a last-minute gift? Men are so difficult to shop for, but our business cards make perfect gifts. (Psst… we also have business stationery that make equally great gifts!) I asked a few Minted staffers what business cards they would choose for the fathers in their lives.
Mariam Naficy, CEO and founder’s dad chose Gallery Director by Andres Montano.
He picked them out himself! He painstakingly reviewed all the cards and picked this in blue as his favorite. We are printing some with the beautiful watercolor backer and some with a photo of my dad with my children.
One of my personal daily must-reads is Mrs. Lilien. Her fabulousness is just the perfect way to begin each day! Kelley Lilien also happens to be our holiday challenge guest judge. She just posted the following ‘Mint & Mauve’ post, which of course, being one-half our signature minted green got me thinking about Minted… and all of our ‘Mint & Mauve’ baby shower designs.
I saw this spread in an issue of House Beautiful from ages ago and it just felt like our beloved Minted green was perhaps exactly this shade of quince, so I couldn’t help but share it with you! I hope it brings a cheery start to your day.1 COMMENT
Karly Depew of much beloved Oscar & Emma recently gave birth to a daughter… and the birth announcement she created to announce Maeve’s arrival was so incredible we just had to share it with you!
Karly was inspired by 3 design styles… organic, elegant and precious.
“The organic part was brought in with the materials I used. The announcement design was letterpress printed and foil stamped on Crane 100% cotton paper tucked inside a cotton muslin bag which was gocco printed with a special message and finished with a tiny gold “M” and heart charm tied to each one. All of this was then mailed inside a kraft envelope.”
“Maeve’s birth announcement was a true labor of love. I pride myself on always thinking of the little things and I didn’t want any detail to go unnoticed. Although pink is customary for a baby girl I chose not to go that route. Maeve is a unique little individual and I really wanted to reflect that with her birth announcement.”
“The elegance was achieved with the actual design of the announcement and by using a subtle gray ink and gold foil. I asked Grace Edmands Calligraphy to hand address the envelopes. Her work is gorgeous and she is such a lovely person, so I really wanted her elegant touch.”
