Handlettering is everywhere you look, from pinterest to home catalogs. I enjoy this vast trend from the subtle to drastic differences, each unique to each designer/artist. I want to share with you three of my favorite lettersmiths. The suffix, -smith connotes a meaning of specialized craftsmen and all three of these individuals are experts in the field of hand lettering.1 COMMENT
Few things are more wonderful than a romantic love story. From the moment a couple meets at a mutual friends house warming party to their very own modern wedding party, we’re entranced.
This chic pair combines their love of solid design, industrial spaces, understated glamour and lush greenery with pops of color for an experience that begins with The Square Types and lasts far beyond their wedding day.Comments Off on Wedding Trends: Industrial Lush and The Square Types

Last week, we were very lucky to have Minted artist, illustrator, and author Jorey Hurley visit us here at Minted HQ in San Francisco. Jorey sat down with Mariam, our CEO and Founder, for a Fireside Chat to talk about Jorey’s work, her inspiration, her Minted experience, and her new book, Nest, with Simon & Schuster.Comments Off on A Talk with Minted Artist Jorey Hurley

Dip Baby Dip… I can’t seem to get that 90s song out of my mind – looking at all these fun color dipped projects. I don’t think there can be a more fun and easy way to add a pop of color to just about anything you own. Boring keychain? Drop it in some neon pink paint and you’re suddenly on trend. Ugly plain wood utensils? No problem. Let them go for a dip in your favorite shades and voila! Instant style.9 COMMENTS

The first day of spring is almost here which means 2 things. Wedding season is upon us and it’s the perfect time to start planning how to infuse the color of the year into your wedding day. When trying to use one trendy color in your palette, I love when brides choose to use a variety of shades rather than trying to match a single color for everything. Not only does it give your decor some variety, it makes your life a lot easier through the planning process. Read on for a few ways to incorporate the color of 2014.2 COMMENTS

Are you planning to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Worried you have to put a shamrock on it? Why not keep it simple and fun with this fringe garland? Just a little pop of green (or a lot) can set off a great party. Garland can be a tricky thing and depending on how large your space is, you could end up needing a lot to have the space feel full. These garlands are wider than the standard and create more dimension which helps you need less of them. These look great from the side and from below and have a circus tent feel. Alternately, you could tell the kiddos that these are leprechaun roads. Either way, you can make two 7 foot garlands from one pack of crepe paper, which is about $1.25, talk about a lot of bang for your party budget.
