It's the holiday season (part two) ...

It's time for another design competition over at Minted! This time Minted is hosting an "Around the World Holiday Card Challenge," asking designers to create a modern, sophisticated holiday card inspired by a specific geographic location of their choice. The photo card needs to allow a Minted customer to upload and incorporate a family photo into the design.

We didn't want to limit ourselves to only Florida (although we did sneak a palm tree into one design!), so we researched other areas of the country, including our stomping grounds of the Midwest. Our designs feature regional icons to bring something fun and different to a typical holiday greeting.

We have really appreciated everyone's support for us over the past few competitions, and voting is now open for the current Holiday Card Challenge. When you have time, please head over to Minted, and look for the designs below. All you have to do is create an account at Minted (it's free!), and then click here to vote. Winners will have their designs sold permanently on the site, and earn a small percentage of all total revenue sold. These competitions are a great way for us to get our name out there, and showcase what we can do! Thank you in advance for supporting our new business!

We used inspiration from the Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, where great rock legends got their start. The studio's signature guitar is displayed outside and is a popular photo spot for tourists. Memphis has a great music heritage and we wanted to showcase it with a holiday twist!

We used the bright tropical colors from the south as inspiration for a warm holiday greeting. The text has a stamped, letterpress look to it and is topped with a palm tree ornament!

Route 66 stretches across many states and makes its way through different scenery, weather and traditions! We used the classic song and iconic signage as inspiration for this fun holiday card.
