Do you remember picture day, when the boys would wear their best overalls and the girls would wear a bright white petticoat? Oh, wait that was on Little House on the Prairie. Ummm… you know the one when Chandler and Monica are having their engagement picture day? Yes, that’s the one! Please tell me everyone gets this reference from Friends. No matter how hard Chandler tries he just can’t smile properly for their engagement photo. Picture Day instills a bit of anxiety in everyone. But for some, it can be almost painful.
We often get requests for photos from family and friends. So, this year we decided to send out Christmas photo cards. While my Mother was visiting she took our photo for the Christmas cards. It was an hour of laughter and silliness and well, a bit of stress for my sweet hubby as you can see. I have my very own picture day Chandler. My amazing hubby. He tries so hard but getting his relaxed smile is a toughie. Bless his heart, he agreed to let me share some of the “outtakes” from our recent picture day. Not to worry we all had a good giggle over them.
We managed to get a couple of nice ones and we had a cell phone selfie too so I headed over to Minted.com
Are you familiar with Minted? They offer photo card services for any occasion as well as art, home decor, stationery, greeting cards and more. Everything is just gorgeous. When you arrive at their website you will be gobsmacked! There are so many beautiful things to make, keep, send, decorate with, and wonderful things for the holidays, every day and special occasions too. Gelsamina, a delightful representative from Minted, reached out and asked me to write a product review of their holiday photo cards. Perfect timing, right!
But first, let me share a little about Minted. Mariam Naficy founded Minted in 2007 she sourced artists designs similar to those she loved from places she had lived in the middle east and Africa. She built a community of talented designers with their mission statement,” 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.”Tens of thousands of designs later and Minted has expanded into the art business and the home décor business too.
The website is very, very user-friendly. The hardest part will be picking your Christmas, or holiday card design.
These are just a few of them.
I uploaded three photos from picture day and changed the text, by following the prompts. I placed my order and used their express shipping and a couple of days later they arrived.
I knew from the moment I opened the box that there was something extra special inside. If you can imagine rainbows, unicorns, sparkles and perhaps the sound of a choir in the background, that was the big TaDaa moment! The attention to detail is over the moon wonderful. From the packaging, the signed wrapping from the minted professional and the quality of the cards and envelopes, I know they will please even the pickiest customer. I am, truly happy with the entire process. You can read my condensed review HERE.
Now comes the hard part, writing them out and getting them in the mail in time for Christmas.
Scoot over to Minted, you still have time to get cards made and out to your loved ones too.
Are you sending out cards this year? Please share your picture day experience with me.
I’ll see you back here on Thursday for the TFT blog link party!
