For the last eight years we have been promoting both Tiny Prints and Minted and a handful of other holiday card merchants. Although we were amongst Tiny Prints early advocates, truthfully, we are a bit over them. This week, as we went back through our files reviewing all the holiday cards we received last year, we realized the cards that stood out were the ones from Minted! The paper was better, the printing was better, and the designs were way more interesting. So this year before you place your usual order, we highly recommend you take a second look at Minted.
Minted has a well curated selection of holiday cards to meet any style. They of course offer their highly acclaimed original holiday cards, but also offer Foil-Pressed Holiday Cards, Letterpress Holiday Cards and more. Continue Reading →
2017 Holiday Card Trends
It is not too late to order your 2017 Holiday Cards! There are so many holiday cards from which to choose, so where to begin? Well this year, PartyIdeaPros finally got our act together enough to plan in advance for the holiday card season. We contacted some of our favorite merchants so we could actually touch and feel the cards ourselves. Yes, we admit it — we are ridiculously touchy feely types. Our trash cans are filled with not so cheap cards printed on flimsy paper with fuzzy photos and illegible print. On the other hand, our sample books are chock full of Tiny Prints cards and invitations. We love their clear graphics and beautiful eco-friendly papers. We also like that Tiny Prints offers stylish products at three different price points and best of all, throughout December they are offering discounts and deals on many of their popular products. This year's Christmas and Hanukkah card trends include rounded corners, back designs, ornament cards, lots and lots of foil an glitter, and are chock full of images of winter greenery. And of course, classic design and colors never go out of style.
