I first learned of Minted after receiving a gorgeous wedding invitation in the mail and asked the bride-to-be where she found them! When I visited the Minted site, I discovered they not only had invitations for every occasion, holiday cards, stationery, and save the date cards, but so much more!
Just some of the unique Save-the-Date cards available!
Since we'll be starting the renovation of our little vacation shack soon, I've really been hit by the decorating bug and have started thinking about wall art (assuming we don't tear the house down or kill each other prior to getting to the part where we actually hang things on the wall). I hit Minted's art collection and was blown away by just how much they had to choose from!
Their search function is so easy to use - you can filter the search to pinpoint what style you're looking for (dozens of choices), color(s), size, shape (landscape, portrait....), and type (drawing, foil pressed, painting...) - and my favorite part....
...you find a print you like....
and, when you hover your mouse over it, you'll see the size range the print is available in....
Now, if you're like me, even if you look at a tape measure, it's hard to actually visualize what the piece might look like that size.....but Minted does something that I think is such a great idea....they show you the print in every size....
How helpful is that?! I also like how you can read about the artist and the story/inspiration behind each piece of art.
You can also see ideas on how you might group the piece of art with other works - another helpful feature for those of us not blessed with a natural eye for that kind of thing!
Here are just a couple of my favorite pieces of wall art from Minted:
"Dalliance" by Artsy Canvas Girl Design
"Botanical Sketch in Green" by Makewells
"Landscape Study III" by Laura Bolter Design
"Bloom in Blue" by Deborah Velasquez
........and because this one reminds me so much of my beloved Harry....
"Wild Rabbit" by Betty Hatchett
Most prints start at just $22 and go up from there depending on the size and if you choose a frame (there are several styles of those to choose from too!) - so you can make Minted your one stop shop for art for every room in the house!
Before I end this post, I have to mention one more thing that I thought was really cool -- the Minted Design Challenge -- where artists can submit their designs for various categories like "Corporate Holiday Greeting Card", "Digital Invitations", and more....these submissions get voted on by other Minted users....and the winners not only get their designs sold on Minted (where the artist earns a commission of course), but there is also a cash prize (even up to 20th or 30th place!!) ---- so if you're artsy & creative, or know someone who is, you have to look into this!!
