Our Minted Christmas Card Tradition

It’s the best kind of holiday mail…

Sending a family Christmas card is one of my very favorite holiday traditions… planning the family outfits, scheduling a photo shoot, choosing a card, and then stuffing and stamping the final product is all so meaningful to me!

Growing up with a professional photographer as a dad, Christmas card season was always a BIG deal in our home. Our annual card was (and still is) a full situation. And we talk about it almost all year long… Where will we photograph it? What will we wear? Do we have a theme? And so on and so on! When we were little we’d have a stuffing envelopes and hot cocoa night where we’d all sit around the kitchen table, sip hot cocoa, and help mom and dad put them together. The best memories!

So, of course, when Ryan and I got married, I also made Christmas cards a thing for us, too. I even go so far as printing our holiday photo each year and putting them in teeny, tiny ornament frames for our Christmas tree. I’m very much into this tradition! And I really *really* look forward to it every year.

But unlike when I was growing up (when we would use double-sided tape to add the photos onto the card and hand sign/address each one), Minted has made sending out holiday cards a dream. From being able to text (yes, TEXT!) a photo to add, to free printing recipient and sender addresses on envelopes, to being able to customize font, shape, print type and more, Minted is so helpful as you create your cards… they really make it so easy. And then it’s one more thing checked off the Christmas list!

Speaking of help, you can text your photos to 22737 (CARDS) and a Minted stylist will text back five holiday card designs with your photo ready to go. Or you can upload a photo to the “Find It Fast” feature on the website and see your photo cards in real time as you scroll, which is GENIUS!

I love that I can always find exactly what I want for my card design and vibe through Minted’s 16,000 (!!!) independent, worldwide artists featured. There is truly something for everyone, like the new letterpress styles (stunning!), the gold foiled cards, and, of course, the fun cutout ornament options.

Needless to say, I really love this holiday tradition. Ordering my Christmas cards is usually one of the first things I do this time of year, so it really feels like the kick-off to the season of merriment!

Thank you Minted for sponsoring this post.
