Minted, the e-commerce site and global community of independent designers, today launched a range of luxurious new printing options for its wedding customers. Minted's unique, indie designs are now available letterpressed and also on a paper the company is calling "Museum Board", an unbendable paper made from fusing three sheets of paper together.
"Minted is responding to couples asking us to deliver our indie-sourced design on new, luxurious paper and with expanded printing options," said Minted Founder and CEO Mariam Naficy. "Minted's Perfection Team won't rest until we have helped each couple realize their unique wedding vision."
New Letterpress Wedding Invitations:
Couples may customize Minted's community-sourced designs with extensive choices: 25 fonts, two thick 100% cotton paper options - 190 lb and 120 lb - and up to three-color printing. All letterpress wedding invitation suites are expertly printed with a crisp, deep impression on vintage Heidelberg Windmill presses. Letterpress wedding invitations start at $4.85 per invitation for a set of 100. Matching letterpressed invitation accessories, such as RSVP cards, reception and direction cards, and thank-you cards, start at $3.15 per card.
New Luxe Museum Board Paper:
Luxe Museum Board is a luxurious, unbendable new paper option for Minted's flat-printed designs. At a hefty 360 pounds and 54 caliper points, Luxe Musuem Board is three times as thick as Minted's already luxe Signature Paper. All of Minted's wedding designs, including optional two-sided printing, are available today. Luxe Museum Board invitations start at $3.95 for 100.
