A NEW AFFORDABLE ART SOURCE - MINTED

I'm always on the lookout for affordable art. I have used Minted for cards a couple of times (my christmas card this year was a minted card) but I never realized they also offered art prints! For those of you who aren't familiar with Minted, it's a community of thousands of designers who create card designs that you can customize, add photos, etc. In my opinion this is the best online source for custom cards. And guess what?! Now some of those graphic designers have designed some really great prints for your wall!

Print prices start at $35 for a 5 x 7 and go all the way up to $425 for a 44 x 60. Now that's a big print!! Another great thing about Minted art is that a lot of it is customizable. Like this fantastic cat print with a place underneath for your cat's name!


 (if we had this print Little Gordon Mittens would be the name on it - that was the name of my husband's cat growing up - kind of think it's the cutest cat name I've ever heard).

And here are a few of my personal favorites...







If you are looking for other great art prints and accessories for your home, make sure to follow my ACCESSORIES board on Pinterest. Here are some great finds I have pinned...

COZAMIA PRINT



MY FAV AFFORDABLE METAL FRAMES


GREG HARGREAVES ON ETSY

Nothing makes a home feel more complete than some great art. It is worth investing in - even if it's only $50 prints with an Ikea frame - it makes a room. I know when I see that Cozamia print I say to myself "you complete me". Yep, I'm that corny :)

If you have a favorite Etsy art shop or another affordable art source you love, please share!!

  1. I love minted for art! I also recently discovered them and I think I'll be putting them to good use for some art for my 3 year old's room.

  2. This is hilarious- please go look at my pinterest and how I just absolutely dumped it with all minted art:) We must have got the same email in our inbox this morning! haha. There are some great affordable prints in there!! I'm so happy with all these companies coming out with afforable options. Of course, someday, I hope to own pieces that are really original, but for now I'm happy there are other options. Loving that rose one.
