Have you heard about Minted? Minted is a community of independent designers in 48 states and 43 countries who share a deep love for creative expression, risk taking and paying it forward by helping one another!
Minted was an early pioneer in crowdsourcing. By soliciting contributions from the online community, Minted has held art and design challenges monthly since April 2008! These challenges are open both by submitting and voting. Minted's crowd curated products rating and utilizing analytics to evaluate votes. Those winning designs are the sold to the public and the artist who designed the winner is paid commission on each sale. In addition, the designer and artist can utilize the launch of any of their creations by using Minted's manufacturing, fulfillment and customer service capabilities to run their business, Sounds like an awesome plan to me!
Some of my favorite pieces available are these!
|STARGAZERS BY MARIA GROMEK|
|BIG ONE BY HAILEY MYZIUK|
|BABY GIRAFFE BY JENNIFER POSTORINO|
I am really in love with the Foil Art available! I really can see the Virginia Foil-Pressed Map.
Also I am so impressed with their 2015 line of Kid's Birthday Invitations.
