Over at Minted there is an awesome design contest going on! They are giving away weekly $200 gift cards and a grand prize of $1000! The site takes submissions for all kinds of independent artists for things like invitations, stationaries, photos, cards, envelopes, artwork; you name it. You can look through hundreds of professionally designed invitation prints, with most averaging at about $2 an invitation. Not too bad! Its a way to support smaller artists and get invitations and cards that you actually like. Here is a little collage I put together for the design contestfrom one of the wedding invitations on the site, with a neutral/pale palette.
