Introducing Minted

If you love stationery and beautiful design I think you will adore Minted. When they wrote to me to ask if I would like to feature them on The Startup Wife I was excited to have a perfect excuse to lose myself in their huge range of wonderful designs and find some of my favourites to share with you. 

Minted are an online design company and are busy pulling together an amazing collection of designers and their designs to share with the world. They describe themselves as "a community of thousands of designers" which I think is a beautiful thing.

I love the site design. It is easy to navigate and it saves the products you've recently viewed.  You can also create mood boards, vote for your favourite designs and even submit your own if you are a designer looking to be featured. 

Minted's range of products is great, from birth announcements, like the sweet one above, to wedding stationery, a paperie, art prints and even party decor. 

They have a cute and inspiring blog called Julep, which is full of cute DIYs like cute animal envelopes and favour bag toppers.

I love this Dream Big print and this Enjoy all the Little Things print. Rather appropriate for me! 

And finally it was lovely to read about Minted working together with West Elm to support independent designers. 

Enjoy exploring Minted. Which design catches your eye?
