Minted is the first retailer to offer exclusive, original, flat-printed designs from a carefully chosen handful of established brands, like Cheree Berry Paper, Dauphine Press, and Wiley Valentine. Together our Minted Select brands have decades of wedding suite design experience and have been featured in the full gamut of bridal publications.
Our regular Friday Meet a Mintie feature was held up by a crazy wind storm assailing New Hampshire–think state of emergency wiping out power and internet–but look for it next week… it’s going to be a good one! But we do have something just as exciting to hold you over until then… the launch of our first batch of Minted Love at First Serif wedding invitations. (Not to worry if you don’t see your chosen design here, we’re already hard at work getting the second and final batch up.) I think you’ll agree that they look absolutely incredible!! And they’re just in time for spring brides.

Oh my goodness! Seriously to die for, don’t you think? I just adore the backers. So many good designs… I want to post each and every single one of them! But I won’t so you can go check them out for yourself!
Oftentimes we ask our staff what their favorite design is, but this time I want to ask you regardless if you’re married, single, or engaged: if you were getting married this coming year, of all of our invites currently for sale, which would you choose and why?
At Minted we love the idea that invitations can capture the spirit and personality of an event. And we’re not alone, in their Summer 2009 issue InStyle Weddings featured invitations for the modern bride that eschews outdated ideas that wedding invitations must be stuffy and boring. The article highlighted designers that are pushing the envelope with bold use of color, strong graphic patterns, and creative use of typography. Among those mentioned was Minted’s own Deco Lights wedding invitation by the talented Deb Pang Davis of Cococello. Allison, one of our talented design associates, is also quoted, “Strong patterns, bright colors and clean font help set the tone for a modern wedding, says Allison Wheeler, a designer at stationery boutique Minted.com. To find your inspiration, Wheeler suggest looking at fabric patterns, modern design and art deco-era typography.”
