***Please note that we've added an additional PDF to the challenge kit, called "Kids Greeting Cards_New Formats," which provides visual examples of the new formats for your reference. Please re-download the challenge kit to access this file.
For the New Formats Children’s Birthday Greeting Card Challenge, we will require an image of the full design, including the front, interior and special assets for each submission. Please use the submission templates included in each challenge kit to create your submission image. We will be accepting the following card formats for this challenge:
- Bi-fold with scratch-off
- Bi-fold with die-cut
- Tri-fold with perforation
- Tri-fold with die cut
- Tri-fold with perforation and die-cut
- Tri-fold with scratch-off
Each of these options is available with or without a sticker sheet, and there are separate templates for each option.
Scratch-off elements must be created using either our standard gold or silver foil textures only, and all foil-pressed elements on these cards must be part of the scratch-off activity. These foil-pressed scratch-off elements can only be included on the front of greeting cards. While only gold and silver foil textures can be used on scratch-off designs, all other foil textures (rose gold, and glitter foil) can be used on the other card formats.
Some copy displayed in your submission images may be difficult to read due to the size of submission images, so please transcribe the copy included in your design in the "card copy" fields of the submission form when uploading your design. If you collaborated with a writer or used copy from the list provided in the submission kit, please include the name of the writer in the “design tags” section.
Please see the Challenge Description PDF included in each submission kit for detailed instructions on using each template to create your design and prepare your submission images. Foil-pressed textures are also included in the challenge kit. If it’s your first time submitting to a Minted Challenge, you can find many more details on the submission process here.
Please see below for images of these new formats. The full challenge kit can be downloaded here.
