They're here!

There I was, trying to wrangle and leash two small beasts before one of them decided to let their bladder have a free-for-all all over the tile. After a few minutes of struggle, I managed to get things under control just enough to open the front door, take a step or two and trip, almost falling down the steps to certain doom. Pissed that I almost just died right there on the front steps, I turned around the see what the crap I just tripped over. When I realized what the small parcel was, I forgave it for my attempted murder, took the pooches on the quickest walk around the neighborhood everrrrr and raced back inside. Our Save the Dates are here!

 Bella wanted to say hi. Notice her wet chin from the massive drink she had to take after our speed walk around the block.

Here's the breakdown:
  • Design: Carved Tree Save the Date by pottsdesign from Minted
  • Paper: Minted's Signature Paper, a luxurious soft cotton texture. 120lb, 15.5 thickness
  • Cost: $152 @ $3.04 each
    • 50 cards: $114
    • Return address printing: $38
  • Review: The ordering process with Minted is extremely easy. The option to personalize the fonts, font size, and wording for no extra charge (we added an additional line of text) is convenient and stress free. Our proof came to us within an hour of placing our order with no mistakes. Shipping is quick and problem-free and, once our product arrive, it were definitely better than what I was anticipating. The paper quality was sturdy and thick, the printing job was fabulous and the cute little note from Luis, who took care of our order, was sweet and unexpected. 
  • Final thoughts: I'd recommend Minted in a heartbeat to anyone looking for stationery. They offer Save the Dates, invitation suites, bridal shower invitations, birth announcements, holiday cards and more! There is definitely something for everyone!
