San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Minted (http://www.minted.com), the global design community and e-commerce site, today announced the first-ever line of TripleThick luxury holiday cards, printed on exclusive paper three times as thick as the company’s already luxurious signature paper. Previously reserved for specialty orders at traditional printers, Minted’s TripleThick paper resembles museum board and is the first of its kind available anywhere for holiday photo cards.
TripleThick paper stands at the intersection of design and technology: it has the lush dappled texture of high cotton content paper, and is meticulously crafted by fusing three layers of paper together.
“Finally, design and photography aficionados can have photo cards printed on paper that is as thick as museum board,”said Minted CEO & Founder Mariam Naficy. “Minted’s chic community-sourced designs coupled with unbelievably thick paper make these the most exquisite holiday cards available anywhere.”
Consumers can opt to print on the back of the card — something never seen before on such thick paper. They can choose from several colorful solid and patterned backers. The backers coordinate with Minted’s envelope liners and address labels.
Minted’s entire holiday card collection is now available on TripleThick paper. Minted’s TripleThick paper is 360 lb. and is priced at $3.00 per card.
