MAKES MINI INK DIFFERENT FROM THE REST?
photo cards are INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED by an experienced graphic designer.
We do not simply place your baby's face into a template. Our designs
are created with your input- you can contribute to the design by suggesting
colours, shapes and style that you think compliments your baby. We
use your baby’s photos as a starting point and create a beautiful
design around them.
We allow you to make as many changes as you want to the design and will send you up to 3 proofs, ensuring your design is exactly how you pictured it.
We offer a satisfaction guarantee. We are positive you will be thrilled with the final product. If you are unhappy with the final product you receive, we will fix the problem, or offer a replacement.
HOW ARE THE CARDS PRINTED?
All of our cards are printed onto Fuji Chrystal Archive Matt Photo Paper - just like all of your other treasured photos. They are just that, photos! You may then choose to have them mounted to give them a more sturdy and durable appearence.
MOUNTED Vs. UN MOUNTED
This photo announcement is professionally printed onto archive quality matt photo paper. It is exactly like all of your other photos that you would have had printed in the past. On the back are Fuji colour watermarks and a digital file stamp, as well as a small Mini Ink logo sticker. The un-mounted photos are more difficult to write on. If you wish to write your own personal message on the back, we suggest going for the mounted option.
This custom birth announcement is professionally printed onto archive quality matt photo paper, then mounted onto beautiful ever so slightly sparkly metallic cardstock, framing your announcement and adding a little extra extravagance. The back of the card sports a small Mini Ink logo sticker and is blank for you to complete with your own message.

space that most pens will write easily on without smudging.

- To use a new credit card, Log into Pay Pal and change the credit card # associated with your Pay Pal account. Go to: ‘my account’ tab, ‘profile’ then select ‘add or change credit card’
