Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Vendor spotlight: Minted

May 19, 2010

Many of you have likely already heard of Minted, as we guest judged their Breakout Wedding Challenge earlier this spring.

What makes Minted so different from any other stationery house is that they crowd source their designs, meaning every month they hold a design challenge that thousands of designers from all over the world enter. Then designers and consumers alike—really anyone who loves cards—vote on their favorites and Minted sells the top scoring designs. Which means that Minted always has new and incredibly fresh designs. Which makes them the first ever community designed, flat printed line of wedding invitations sourced from the challenge we just judged.

Fling wedding invitations by Andrea Mentzer and Love Struck wedding invitations by the Social Type. Just Married wedding invitations by Three Kisses Studio.

Our final judges pick, in all of its glory: Fireflies wedding invitations by Minted designer Paige Rothaar was an overwhelming majority by all you lovely readers.

Minted community member and employee Annie Clark shows off her first prize-winning Winter Flourish wedding invitations. Float Paperie’s Andrea Tahlier shows off her Love + Lockdown wedding invitations printed on Minted’s pearlescent paper.

Minted has also included exclusive flat printed designs by really well known brands in their launch, including Elum, Wiley Valentine, Dauphine, and Cheree Berry in their Favorite Designers category. The Summer Lanterns wedding invitations are by Minted community member Design Lotus and K-I-S-S-I-N-G wedding invitations are by Minted favorite designer Cheree Berry.

The best part (or nearly so) is that Minted’s invites are super affordable, starting at just $147 for 50 invitations.

From now until the end of the month in celebration of this huge launch, Minted is offering three free samples (code: SAMPLES) or 15% off all wedding invitations (code: LAUNCH15). The 15% discount also applies to their fab save the date cards for those of you who are a little earlier in the planning process.
