GIVEAWAY! $100 for Holiday Cards at Minted

Last year, Eric and I couldn’t decide whether or not to send out a holiday card and by the time we wanted to send one, it was far too late. That’s why when November rolled around this year I jumped at the chance to design our first holiday card. The first stop I made was Minted.

After looking through hundreds of designs, I decided to go with the design that Jenna Lyons picked out as the winner of the holiday design contest. When you purchase this design, Minted will donate 15% of gross profit from the sales of Etched to Teach For America. Minted believes in enabling the growth, creativity, and careers of independent designers. Teach For America’s mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort.”

There are thousands of designs to choose from and there is definitely something for everyone. I can’t wait to see what all of you pick as your favorite. I’m off to go assemble and address mine!

Well, I’m incredibly excited to announce that one lucky reader will win a $100 Minted gift certificate! Just pop over to Minted and then leave a comment here telling us which holiday invitation you would purchase with the certificate.

A winner will be chosen one week from today and please be sure to leave your email address.

  18. Leslie

    What a great giveaway! I'd definitely give this to my mom if I won; she adores holiday cards as much as I do. I'd want her to pick the card that donates for Teach for America…I taught for three years and education is close to my heart.

  19. caitlindentino

    I love these. The past few years, our cards have been hand done, and this year, I think I may be ready to outsource. Minted cards would be perfect – they are so good looking! So many to choose from, but I am leaning towards the Gallery Classic Holiday Photo Cards. Thanks Catlin & Minted!

  20. Brittany

    wow those Etched Holiday Photo Cards are amazing! they look like and advertisement!

  21. Kevin

    The Global Holiday Photo Cards look pretty good.

    I love Minted! I have only looked at TinyPrints, but I think I like Minted better. Sleeker 🙂

  31. genbomm

    Love the "Cheers to You and Yours" card! Just got my wedding pics and one of my favorites is my husband and I clinking our champagne glasses together.


    I really like the Kraft Ribbon Holiday photo cards because of the vintage-y feel. I already know the perfect picture to use for them.

    Have a great Thanksgiving!



  33. Ashleigh

    I would love to send out the Etched holiday photo card using one of our engagement photos that we just got back! It's the perfect way to share our love with our family and friends for the holidays. Even better that part of the profits are being donated to Teach For America!

  34. L.O.A.H.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Rejoice Holiday photo card…love it!

  35. dcoopsd

    Ok so this is super difficult. See I'm in love with "notch" because it's So my style but then again I'm totally feeling the "vintage typography" because I'm a font whore. Or maybe it should be the "Naughty is the New Nice" because… well… um…. Anyway, by the time I pick I'll be ready to send out next year 😀

  36. Ashley & Ben

    The Etched!!

  37. Kate

    I love the new years eve invites! I would use the $100 towards fabulous invites for my annual NYE cocktail party!
