Last week Minted offered to let me try out one of their awesome photo calendars, and no hesitation....I promptly took them up on the offer. Not only do I LOVE Minted products (see proof here), but I've always wanted to order a photo calendar and just haven't ever made one. So, I received the calendar last night and the quality does not disappoint. They recently updated to a new matte paper, and one that's super thick. So, not only does the design look super luxurious, but it's easy to write on compared to some other calendars. And, there's enough room to write in the squares. I know that sounds silly, but so many calendars don't have enough room for events. Here are a few shots to show you how it turned out and more details below...
I chose the "Glittering Confetti Grand Calendar" and absolutely love it. The colors and calligraphy make me smile. I was wondering how the design would show considering it's somewhat simple, but it stands out so well against the paper quality and almost looks three-dimensional. Another fear of mine is that I didn't have photos to use that were high-quality enough for some months (I use my iphone for almost everything!). So, I ended up using some instagram photos, and those pages turned out really well!
And, while you're here...a few of my favorite of their other gift ideas right now.
This one, it's my absolute favorite and I seriously want one to put on our wall.
Awesome, adorable art prints...framed or unframed. Perfect for a friend and great for a kid's room.
And some classic (or funky) personalized stationery for your paper-loving friend, especially in the new triple-thick paper. A great gift for newly marrieds or new graduates.
