Okay, it's crunch time. The holidays are approaching, and it's time to start working on those holiday photo cards! Before you know it, your uncles and aunts and far-away friends are going to start wondering when your famously chic cards are going to arrive, so there's no time to waste!
Unfortunately, when you're faced with all the designs and options, it's all too easy to be overwhelmed and end up spending hours and hours agonizing between different designs, selecting each and personalizing them, only to start all over again with a new design. Luckily, premium card company Minted has got a great solution: Find It Fast, their new Holiday Card Comparison tool lets you upload a single photo and see what it looks like on hundreds of their card designs at once!
See, with Find It Fast, I get a birds-eye view of how my photo will look when applied to all the designs. I know right away that the Be JoyFul Holiday design, while adorable, just won't work for the photo I want because the "O" in Joyful obscures The Pea's face. And I know that the whimsical curls and swirls in the Merry Typography design complements the Disneyland background in the photo perfectly. Here's what the card would look like with our photo:
What a great time-saver! And let's face it, you'll need the extra time, because Minted's card designs are so gorgeous (Minted has a community of thousands of designers, and many of their designs are winners of user-judged design competitions), deciding which design to choose can be a challenge -- but don't worry, whichever design you choose, you'll be in good hands. Minted uses premium cardstock and even sends you an electronic proof for every product you order, so you know exactly what you'll be getting.
Well, what are you waiting for, get thee to the Minted website pronto -- and don't forget to check out Minted's latest deals and offers before you order!
