Minted (http://www.minted.com), the global design community and e-commerce site, today launched a refreshed selection of baby shower invitations. With the new crop of designs, all sourced from its community of independent designers, Minted continues to distinguish itself from the competition as the premier source of unique stationery.
“Our community of indie designers once again raised the bar on baby shower invitations,”said Brady Wood, VP of Product Marketing at Minted. “We are thrilled to promote these talented designers and give them the opportunity to design a cherished memento for newborns’ family and friends.”
Like the company’s existing holiday cards, wall art, and invitations products, all baby shower invitations on Minted.com are sourced through global design competitions and voted upon by the community. Minted receives thousands of art and design submissions each week.
The 62 new additions bring Minted’s baby shower invitations to 247 designs in total. Many of the new designs include bright, cheerful colors and incorporate playful depictions of animals. The collection includes adoption announcements, invitations for twins and multiples, and even a few Sip & See invitations. All Minted invitations are printed on luxurious soft cotton paper and come available with backer options.
For the Books to Bottles challenge, designers were asked submit chic and modern baby shower invitations. Designers receiving some of the highest marks from the community included, Susan Asbill of Dallas, TX, Alethea and Ruth of Seattle, WA, Jennifer Wick of Harrisburg, PA, Wondercloud Design of Atlanta, GA and Griffinbell Studio of Encinitas, CA.
