The Best Holiday Cards

About this time every year, I start looking for holiday cards to send out. And every year I would get so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options (and the expensive costs) out there that I would throw in the towel and give up. And thus, never sent out cards. Until last year. Last year I used Minted to send out holiday cards from Bespoken. And to say I was thoroughly impressed is an understatement.

Where to find the best holiday cards

I chose Minted holiday cards last year because I had so many brides using Minted for their Save the Dates and wedding invitations. I had seen up close and personal how good the quality of the cards, printing, and production always was… so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try their holiday cards for myself. Plus I love the fact that all Minted cards (holiday or otherwise) are designed and created by independent artists. And they define their purpose as:  “Our purpose in life is to uncover exceptional design from all over the world and bring this to savvy consumers who won't accept anything else." That’s something I can definitely stand behind.

Anyway… I found the perfect holiday card to send out to some of my favorite people. Instead of sending out a Christmas card, I ended up choosing a New Year’s card… because as much as I LOVE receiving Christmas cards, I’m a little disappointed to stop getting snail mail after December 25. So I thought it would be a little special to send loved ones a Happy New Year card to keep the snail-mail spirit alive for a few more days. I ordered the cards online, which were EASILY customizable and inexpensive, and within just a few days the cards arrived on my doorstep. And the quality was PERFECT. The cardstock was thick, and the gold foil was stunning. Seriously - stunning.

This was the design I chose for last year’s holiday cards:

I loved the black and gold to stay true to Bespoken’s brand while bringing in a little chic-ness for the New Year. And you know what I love even more? Walking into stores and fellow event professional’s offices and seeing our holiday card still pinned to their walls. Warms my heart.

Sidenote: You can also enter in all of your recipient addresses and Minted will address them as a complimentary service! I love anything that’s going to save me time. Here’s what the fronts of our envelopes from last year looked like:

Needless to say, this year I’m not only going to be sending out Bespoken company holiday cards from Minted, but I’ll also order some personal Christmas cards to send out to mine and Brentley’s friends and family. And here’s the best part- they are currently running an Early Bird Special! You can receive 15% off holiday cards now through the end of Monday, October 18 by using EARLYBIRD18 when you checkout!

I’ve explored Minted’s new holiday cards for 2018, and have rounded up some of my personal favorites for you below! (Each is also linked to it’s direct page on Minted in the captions)

I can’t decide which one I love the most, but I do have my eye on a few specific ones from Bespoken and a few others from me and Brentley.

Which of the ones above do you love? Or have you been to their site and found a different one you love? I would LOVE to know which one is your favorite!
