It is that time of year! The holidays are just around the corner and you know what that means – it is time to start thinking about how you are going to spread the cheer and connect with loved ones! This year, how about we rediscover the beauty of the hand-written note by sending holiday greeting cards via “snail mail”? There is something so special about receiving a card, especially during this busy season! Holiday cards are the perfect way to express well wishes to your nearest and dearest.
One of the best sources for modern and stylish holiday cards is Minted. Their selection is unmatched! Featuring designs created by a global community of independent artists, this online marketplace produces some of the highest quality paper goods available. They have recently launched their all new 2017 Holiday Card Collection designs, all sourced from independent artists across the globe through their holiday card design competitions. (If you are not familiar with the Minted Design Challenges, you can learn more about the process – and participate by voting for your favourites – here.) Whether you are newly married, celebrating a new birth, sending a family update, or just wanting to connect with old friends, you will find a design and card to suit your need. Here are the 10 top-voted Holiday Cards as chosen by the Minted community.
Minted offers something for every style and every budget. The customizations possibilities are endless and allow you to fully personalize your chosen design; each card comes with breathtaking colour options, different shapes to choose from, luxe paper types and quality, customizable backers, card interior options, and even includes postage and free recipient addressing! Consider it your one stop shop for all things holiday greetings! With so many amazing designs to choose from, I have given you a jump start by curating my favourite cards for the upcoming holiday season on my Holiday Card Designs Pinterest board that you can browse here. See a design you like? It gets even better – you can save 15% off holiday cards + free shipping with the code HOLCARDS until October 30.

I also really like the Holiday Booklette Cards that Minted offers as a unique and personal way of not only spreading holiday cheer but also sending family updates to loved ones and friends you don’t see very often throughout the year. These booklettes are available in a variety of layouts with the same upgrades and add on options that regular holiday cards have, including interior options, free recipient addressing, and skinny wrap address labels. The holiday booklettes are a great choice if you have a lot of photos that you would love to share! They are also ideal if you have celebrated a momentous life milestone such as a new baby or getting married! I’ve shared some of my favourite booklettes as well!
