This post is brought to you by Minted.com. I received product in exchange for this first birthday whale invitations review. There are affiliate links in this post. As always all opinions are my own.
We celebrated Ryder’s first birthday two weekends ago. A month and a half prior I had reached out to my friends at Minted for birthday invitations. They have the best invitations. I’m a paper person and believe that quality is key. 10 years ago I was a production assistant for a publishing company. I learned all about paper thickness, inks, bleeds, and everything in between. I thank that first job out of college for my obsession with high quality printed materials! Good thick paper, upgraded die-cuts, shimmery envelopes, custom address label wraps, and even free recipient addressing. You can’t go wrong with Minted.
I opted to share a photo of Ryder on the back with a brief description of the party and written instructions on how to get to our house. I always find that helps… Especially letting your guest know the neighborhood name and any other helpful hints to help them navigate to your home.
I loved the custom whale sticker address label wraps. Normally I go for the craft envelopes instead I went with the shimmery silver envelopes this go around. And on the opposite side (you can’t see that for the privacy of my guest) you can opt to have addresses printed on the actual envelope!
They even had matching thank you cards so I ordered those as well!!
