Minted.com recently asked me to review their Father’s day cards and gifts. Since I happen to love Minted (I did my christmas cards with them last year – awesome!), and have a few fathers in my life, it was a no brainer to share their high quality and well designed products with you!
I have to say that I was bit skeptical about using a site like Minted to buy something like a fathers day card. I figured the prices would be to high, and the cards no better than your standard hallmark card, so why bother with something seemingly more complicated? Boy was I so completely wrong on every account. I checked out their cards and found that all the cards were well designed and super easy to customize. Here are a few that I just adore:
Now you must be thinking to yourself those are so adorable, but they must cost a bajillion dollars. I couldn’t believe that they are only $5.99.
$5.99! For a custom printed with any of your photos card. And I’m not done yet! The cards are also full-color print on the inside with as many photos as you can squeeze in there (they have different layout options that are super easy to drop photos in).
So let me share the cards that I ordered so you can see how precious these are. Outside cover:
The paper these cards are printed on is super thick 98lb and I selected the Pearlescent paper option, which has just a little bit of shimmer. The quality of the print is excellent and I’m super picky about paper and print quality.
I almost cried when I opened up this card and saw all these precious moments from the past 6 months. This is definitely more than a card to me, it’s an opportunity to get pictures off my computer and give them a chance to be cherished.
There just isn’t anything cooler than a card with all your own photos printed inside of it.
I also wanted to print a card for my Dad. I chose a simple one because I don’t have any photos of me and my dad (now that I know this, I need to make an effort to take some!).
I did drop a single picture in the inside of our little family (also need to get family photos taken now that Leo is bigger!).
In addition to the cards, Minted also has various Father’s Day Gifts including wall art, customized stationary, and journals. Mr. Project loves to sketch and so I was thrilled when I saw that you could get their journals with blank pages – perfect for sketching.
I customized his sketch book with his name, and the inside cover is custom printed with our address if it gets lost. I think this is so awesome, and was excited to find the perfect simple gift for Mr. Project. You can also print photos on the inside and there are several journals that have photos on the cover like this one:
I am so grateful for this opportunity to review Minted’s father’s day products because I know I wouldn’t have tried them out just on my own. And now that I have seen how awesome they are, I can’t imagine not ordering my cards from them every year (and probably for every occasion!).
