Freshly Minted: From Artist to You

Minted which offers stationery and invitations sourced from a global community of independent artists and designers, has teamed up with an amazing non-profit organization Every Mother Counts. Founded by Christy Turlington Burns, Every Mother Counts is an advocacy and mobilization campaign to improve global maternal health. Minted will be donating 50% of the sales of their children’s and nursery art collection to Every Mother Counts in the month of December 2012 and 6% until May 2013.

Minted provides independent designers and artists an opportunity to have their designs sold online at Minted.com through community voted design competitions. With their successful approach to crowd-sourcing stationary online, the San Francisco based company has recently expanded to include archival-quality art prints. Artists and designers from around the world can submit original designs and photographs to the Minted site, and the most popular designs are voted by the community and sold on Minted.com. In addition, the winning designers also receive a nice cash prize, a 6 percent commission on all the sales of their work and Minted handles all the behind the scenes work like: the printing, shipping, packaging, and customer service on all orders.

Too many great finds? Why not start with a 2013 calender photo calender created exclusively for Minted by their talented community of independent designers. You know your going to need one.
