Takeaway: Looking for something a little less ordinary? Minted offers limited-run and custom holiday cards produced by independent artists and designers, and they hold regular competitions to choose new works. You will pay a slight premium for this focus on craft, but it also means you’ll have unusual options other vendors don’t offer, such as letterpress printing, vellum overlays, multi-page “booklettes,” and custom foil-print cards using your child’s own hand-drawn illustration. Envelopes are also available with a number of color and lining options, and some cards are available on ultra-thick card stock. Similar to Paper Culture, Minted’s site makes it simple to filter options by design, theme, format, and more.
