I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I am a photographer for weddings and portraits. I love capturing photos that evoke love and happiness and have enjoyed capturing images of couples for several years. With a growing photography industry, there are a plethora of companies that are available for prints, personalization and design for yourself and to offer your clients. Over the years I have used many different sites and vendors and quality is a definite a must when providing anything to a client. Today I want to share with you an online site that makes customization easy and the prices are definitely on par with what is on the market today. Today I introduce you to Minted.com.

Creative content from a global community of artists can be found online and can be purchased in the form of art, home décor and stationery directly to consumers. Minted not only allows you to be creative, the site offers challenges that are open for submission and voting which makes Minted. unique in that it gives an additional option for creators.
Started by Mariam Naficy in 2007, Minted held their first design challenge with a save-the-date card design competition that attracted 66 entries. Now a few years later and thousands of design and art entries, the company has expanded into the art business and home décor business and their products have now reached 40 million homes Worldwide. Founder Mariam loved art & design after seeing a variety of types through out her travels as well as those created by family members and for this reason, she wanted to have the hidden creative talent of those around the World accessible to consumers.
