Review and Giveaway: Minted Art Marketplace



I have long loved Minted for their great holiday card designs printed on high quality paper. I think they were the first to raise the bar for custom cards and they continue innovating (did you see all the cute custom printed return addresses last holiday season?). But their Art Marketplace is new to me. Maybe to you too? They asked me to take a look and consider a giveaway for my readers. In the time it took the browser to load the Minted Art Marketplace I was certain this was something I wanted to share! So read on for a chance to win a $50 credit towards some new art for your walls.



I started by applying some filters to the art I was being shown. I loaded "more filters" and picked "landscape" for the style and "blue" for the color. Because isn't a blue toned landscape just what we need in the middle of a hot summer?


This pulled up a bunch of beauties, including some of my favorites, "Beauty Reflects Beauty," "Big Sky Country," "Water Levels," and "Mid-Summertime."


While viewing an individual piece of art the Minted Art Marketplace makes it possible to preview different frame styles. I prefer the simple frames: Flat face in natural wood or black or white painted wood. 


You can also select a size to print. As small as 5"x7" and as large at 44"x60". Cool! I'd love a giant print on my wall! All the art prints are limited edition and printed on acid free or archival paper with premium inks so the reproductions will remain vibrant. 


Sometimes it's difficult to visualize the scale of one of these sizes so Minted has provided an "Art Print Sizes" tab with pictures of a model holding the print in all the different sizes. How great is that? They also show some suggested art groupings in a room environment so you can imagine how it might fit into your space.


Similar to their approach with greeting cards, Minted has curated this original art from independent artists from all over the United States. I love access to such a broad range of talent, and the idea that my purchase will support a creative individual.

I'm a huge fan of original art work, but one-of-a-kind works are often out of reach. This limited edition approach from fresh artists is a great way to add some beautiful work to your walls.

Are you convinced? Check out Minted Art Marketplace to find something that speaks to you.

And enter to win a $50 credit right here!

Love this site, I could search for hours they have not a little of everything but a lot of everything! I can't decide between winter scenes or Paris/Brussels/Bruges, ARRGH!

Something with a folksy feel to it maybe. I guess I am a browser and would know it when I see it!

I'd look for something nature-inspired, hopefully by a local artist.

We're doing some remodeling and redecorating so this would be wonderful! I am looking for inspiration right now and am open to everything so I don't have a specific style to look for although prints with blues and greens would be high on my list.

Thanks for the opportunity!

I like neutral colors in my art, so I would search based on color. We just bought our first house, and our walls are screaming for art! Would love to win this giveaway!

Elizabeth said...

I like Big Sky Country, too, and I like pieces that remind me of family vacations at the Jersey shore, so I might look for beach scenes.
