Well, here’s a little something to cheer up your Monday afternoon. You may have come across Minted invitations before (I know I’ve featured quite a few of them in my inspiration boards) and if you have, you’ll know that they have some of the most awesome stationery around. What makes Minted special is that they hold regular design challenges with winners chosen by the community and sold through the website – the result is that they not only represent a global community of independent designers, but that the Minted collection is always fresh and relevant. It also makes great design accessible for a reasonable price – for example, I just ordered business cards for my freelance editorial work from Minted that cost me very little, but will really stand out from the crowd (can’t wait to receive them, eek!). They’re regularly featured in the wedding press, but what Cape Town brides may not know is that Minted ship to South Africa! Now that’s something to get excited about!
The good folks at Minted wanted to give my lovely readers a little gift, but instead of a competition where only one of you will get to win, we’ve decided to offer a discount to all of you! Even more excitement! The code HITCHED10 (enter at checkout) will get you 10% off wedding stationery, and is valid until 31 October 2011, so get ordering!
To inspire you (and show you just how easy it is to customise these babies), I’ve rounded up ten of my favourite invitation designs. (Psst! All the faux brides and grooms are from my favourite ’80s movies – how many can you identify?) To see the full collection, head on over to one of these links:
I think this last one is my absolute favourite – Minted can moved the little heart to wherever your wedding is. So perfect for destination brides and grooms!
