Minted 2015 Holiday Card Winners

Minted's 2015 Holiday Card Winners & Preview Sale

We are excited to announce this year's winners of Minted's annual holiday card design contest. For the 2015 design challenge more than 4,661 independent artists submitted entries and a record 2.4 million votes were cast. We are loving Oscar & Emma's 1st place design. From the list of winners, it was our hands down favorite. Truthfully, the 2nd and 3rd place designs seem a bit busy for our taste (although we do like the use of real foil), but we definitely agree that the rest of the cards deserve their place in the top ten. If you are not yet familiar with Minted, you should definitely check them out. They create some of the best quality stationery available and their 2015 holiday card winners are a step above the rest.

In celebration of all independent artists everywhere and their loyal & devoted customers, Minted is offering 20% OFF all Holiday Cards when you use promo code PREVIEW2015 now through September 28, 2015. Continue Reading →

Rosh Hashanah New Year Cards | Jewish Holidays

Rosh Hashanah New Year Cards

In secular society, January 1st is the official start of the new year but for Jewish people world wide, Rosh Hashanah marks the new year and new beginnings.  For me, Rosh Hashana is one of my very favorite Jewish holidays. It is generally celebrated in September or early October (I can't give you an exact date since the Hebrew lunar calendar is only 354 days verses 365 days in the solar calendar so the days don't line up the same every year. For example, Rosh Hashana 2015 begins on the evening of September 13th whereas next year the holiday starts on the evening of October 2, 2016.)  and more or less coincides with the onset of a new school year.   Growing up, when we went back to school shopping we also picked up a new Fall outfit for the High Holidays. To this day I buy a school calendar (September – September) rather than the traditional January to January calendar – it is more organic, it is more intuitive. Continue Reading →
