Minted Reviews: I Examined 2611 Customer Reviews & Ratings!
Minted, an online company based in the United States (San Francisco, CA), is best known for its easy DIY save-the-date cards, personalized wedding invitations (especially their popular all-in-one wedding invitations), and helpful customer service.
But Minted offers way more than just premium quality wedding products.
Just these past two years, Minted has been one of my favorites sites to buy all kinds of art prints (I loved, loved, LOVED every piece I bought), Christmas cards (and other holiday cards), invitations, and business cards.
Overall, I’ve had only great experiences with Minted and, in my opinion, they get an A+.
I have used minted for many years and have the most amazing cards for holidays and invitations! I get nothing but compliments from everyone! This year, two dozen people wrote me to say it was the best card they have ever seen, ever! People call me to ask who I use for my cards all the time. I very highly recommend minted to everyone…Reviewed on December 17, 2017 by Katie G (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
So I thought I would take some time to read what 2611 customers[RES] had to say about Minted, summarize/write what they had to say, plus add my own experience with Minted in this post.
Most of us know that people tend to complain versus compliment a company when writing their opinions online. That’s why I was really impressed when I saw so many compliments about Minted between 2019 and 2021 [RES].
But I’ll admit one thing…
…I love reading and focusing on people’s criticism about any company.
You can call me a pessimist, but before I shop online I like to know what customers DIDN’T like about a site, its products, and its customer service. With this info, I can make a better decision on whether or not I want to shop at a particular online store (or which products or services to avoid).
So, in this post, you’ll find that I focus more on what customers didn’t like about Minted. This is so I can provide you with the information you need if you’re a cautious online shopper like me.

Minted’s Customer Service
I read so many great compliments about Minted’s customer service in the past couple of years.
But, I’ll be honest…
A few years back, prior to 2019, some people’s thoughts about Minted’s customer service made me hesitant to order anything from Minted for the very first time. Mind you, I’m a REALLY cautious/nervous online shopper when it’s my first time dealing with an online company for the first time.
Now, in 2021, the opinions of Minted’s customer service [RES] are MUCH more positive and match my personal experience with Minted (which has been beyond great).
A mindful company with excellent customer service
Minted is a great place to shop for any of your paper needs for your wedding. We initially chose them because I read that they don’t sell our guests’ data to other companies and because they support real artists, but their customer service turned out to be amazing too. We had a small issue with envelopes and with the first printing of our invitations and Minted was extremely quick to get both solved and gave us what felt like special treatment. We will be using Minted again!Reviewed on May 16, 2021 by Caroline Henneberry (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
Today, many customers say that Minted’s customer service is fast to reply and very polite. And they also provide recommendations and help if you can’t get something just right with your order. Personally, this put me more at ease for buying anything on Minted.
So perhaps Minted is stepping up their game when it comes to customer service???
I think that customer service is really the backbone of any online company. You need an A+++ rating with customer service for me to even consider giving an online store any of my business.
Normally, I do not write reviews for companies but after seeing so many negative reviews on Trustpilot and Twitter, I wanted to share my experience. Minted has been nothing but amazing to work with. In the fall, I ordered my wedding save the dates and bridal shower invites through them. The process was seamless, everything came on time and correct, and the product was beautiful.Reviewed on January 8, 2020 by Aleigh Bollon (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I ordered my entire wedding suite on Minted. The digital proof was a bit delayed getting to me from when the website quoted me, so I reached out to customer service. They immediately upgraded my shipping method to rush overnight because I was concerned I would not get them in enough time to send out to guests. They also made sure to expedite the digital proof process. I placed my order on 12/30, it shipped on 1/6, and was in my hands on 1/7. Everything was perfect with zero errors.
Huge shout-out to ARI with Customer service who worked with the design team to get me everything on time AND upgraded shipping method.
I will definitely be a return customer of Minted!
Minted’s Company: Return Policy
Below are all questions I had before ordering products from Minted.
- What happens when you receive your order from Minted and it’s not what you wanted?
- Or worse, what happens when you don’t get your order at all?
- How does Minted’s customer service do with returns, refunds, and replacements?
I did read a lot of good feedback, written between 2019 and 2021, on how customer service would give replacements to orders that were faulty (without any hassle).
Overall, from all the customer comments I’ve read, it feels like Minted is more focused on fixing the order with replacements rather than giving refunds. (But this is only based on what I read. Please remember this doesn’t mean this info is 100% complete.)
As for returns, I didn’t read any comments where the customer mentioned that they had to return items in the mail in order to get a replacement for faulty products. A picture of the item was all they needed.
Amazing Customer ServiceReviewed on July 13, 2020 by Sharon W. (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
I had a great experience with Minted’s customer service, both via phone and via email communications. I had made a personal error on my wedding invites and was requesting that I could add return addresses to my envelopes, and long story short their team bent over backwards to help me make it right without charging me anything. They apologized for putting me on hold for less than 5 minutes while they worked to figure everything out. They replied to my emails in less than a day and were very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the higher cost of these invites because of the quality of service you also get with your purchase.
Minted’s Product Quality
From 2019 to 2021, most customers had great things to say about the quality of the products they received. It’s really become obvious to me that Minted is putting a real effort into bringing high-quality products to its customers.
Overall, you can expect that the products are “as advertised” and that you’ll have a great experience with Minted.
Minted was easy to use and my invites even came in earlier than the expected date looking wonderful! I am so happy that the address printing was included as that was a huge piece that made my life much much easier. I would highly suggest minted and the all-in-one invite!Reviewed on April 8, 2021 by Shannon Cahillane (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
What about the stuff that went wrong? What about the bad experiences some customers had?
I love to read what people don’t like about a company’s products and what really annoyed or angered them. lol Is that so wrong?
Here are a few things to look out for when shopping on Minted…
Minted’s Wedding Websites
Although this is such a minor thing (in my eyes), I thought I would mention that a few customers complained that Minted’s wedding websites can’t be found by using a search engine (search engines = Google.com, Bing.com, etc).
Even if you contact customer service with this issue, they will tell you that there’s no way for your website to be searchable on Google. It’s just not an option. So, if not this will be a problem for you, these wedding websites are probably not for you.
Minted’s Paper/Photo Cards & Invitations
There are a few things I want to mention about Minted’s invitations…
First, I just want to say that the quality of the paper and printing is PREMIUM quality. I love everything about how their cards and stationery feel and they absolutely look amazing.
So, quality is definitely not an issue.
Using minted has been so easy! My fiance and I were easily able to find a design for our save the dates, wedding website and invitations that we loved. … The proofing process was so quick and I felt like the minted editor took the time to make the changes they thought would look best.Reviewed on March 10, 2021 by Sara (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
OK. Now for what went wrong…
First, it seems that if you put in a special request, and then you select Express shipping, that your special request is not granted. (This issue was brought up to Minted and might have been resolved by now).
I also read a few negative comments about customers receiving the wrong amount of cards or invitations. It’s like there’s no one to count how much of a product is being printed before it’s sent. And there seems to be a lot of criticism about receiving the wrong product, like receiving the wrong type of envelope.
But my question is always, “Will customer service fix the issue, hassle-free?” And, I can say with confidence that customer service WILL make it right.
I just wish that these issues wouldn’t happen to begin with. Perhaps they are overwhelmed with the number of people who want to order their products? And we are all humans and make mistakes. But I get the feeling that there needs to be more quality control in these areas.
Update (April 20, 2021): Quality Control
More recent comments from customers are proving that Minted is already in the midst of correcting its quality control issues. There seem to be fewer complaints of receiving the wrong orders in the past couple of months. So it seems they really are listening to their customers.

Minted’s Invites: Postage Stamps
Update (June 9th, 2020): Custom postage stamps are discontinued in the United States and are no longer available for sale on Minted.
Value: Are Minted Prices Good for the Quality?
When compared to other e-commerce sites that offer the same kind of products, Minted’s prices can be a little more pricey. However, I feel like Minted’s prices are fair because the quality of their products is really amazing. You’re really getting your money’s worth.
If you’re comparing the prices of art prints online, you might find that Minted’s prints are a little more expensive than other e-commerce websites. However, again, the prints are really premium quality and they’re all limited edition prints. Limited edition art prints typically increase in value over time, so they’re actually a good investment.
I used minted.com for my wedding invitations and loved it! They sent me proofs of my invitations, inserts, and wedding programs. They were quick to make any adjustments or design requests. I loved how beautiful each piece turned out. If you’re looking for perfect invitations and day of wedding paper, use minted.Reviewed on January 3, 2021 by Julia (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!)

I am so unbelievably thankful for their professionalism, flexibility, and wonderful customer service. I truly love my save the dates!! Thank you!Reviewed on March 20, 2021 by Lauryn R (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!) 
Minted had such a great selection of invitation suites for my wedding. I loved the ability to customize so they looked exactly the way I wanted. The wedding invitations I ordered were absolutely beautiful, and arrived about a week after I ordered them! There was a mistake on one of my outer envelopes, but the customer service team at Minted was responsive and helpful, and were able to re-print it for me. I would definitely use Minted again.Reviewed on May 1, 2021 by Sarah (Gave Minted 5 out of 5 stars: Excellent!)
