San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Minted, the global design community and e-commerce site, today launched Address Assistant, the first free address collection and printing service for holiday card shoppers. The new service saves time for busy shoppers during the holiday rush. Minted’s Address Assistant prints recipient addresses on your holiday card envelopes. In addition, the Address Assistant will help collect mailing addresses for any friends who are missing from one’s address book.
“Free addressing is yet another way that Minted offers a truly premium customer experience,” said Mariam Naficy, Minted CEO. “Our customers are incredibly busy at this time of year. Address Assistant saves time and hassle. We will ensure that our customers' envelopes look as perfect as their Minted cards inside.”
Address Assistant allows shoppers to easily upload an existing address book. At the customer's request, the Assistant will also collect updated mailing addresses from select friends and family. Shoppers can choose from more than twenty stylish fonts, which will print directly on Minted’s envelopes. Minted ships the printed envelopes and customized Christmas cards to the sender.
