Minted, a design marketplace for independent artists, has announced its debut wedding stationery collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Minted x The Met Wedding Collection features the work of Minted artists who have reimagined iconic masterpieces from the museum’s collection as wedding stationery suites, including save the dates, wedding invitations and day-of stationery. A portion of every purchase will support independent artists and the museum’s collection, study, conservation and presentation of 5,000 years of art. 

Minted artists drew inspiration from works in The Met collection – ranging from antique French bridal lace in The Costume Institute and late 18th-century chinoiserie to iconic paintings by Van Gogh and Monet – and reimagined them as wedding stationery designs reflective of each artwork’s intricate details and timeless beauty. Each wedding suite will be available as coordinating save-the-date, invitation, ceremony and reception stationery so couples can bring their vision to life in an artful way from “Yes” to “I do.” 

The Minted x The Met Wedding Collection is anchored in designs by 12 Minted artists who hail from around the globe: Kelly Ambrose (Georgia), Leah Bisch (California), Simona Camp (Texas), Everett Paper Goods (Scotland), Petra Kern (Slovenia), Cass Loh (Malaysia), Corinne Malesic (Australia), Kristen Smith (Georgia), Ani Somi (Washington), Ana De Sousa (Portugal), Sumak Studio (Poland) and Katharine Watson (Maine). 


“Since our founding, Minted’s mission has been devoted to creating economic opportunity for artists and creators all over the world,” says Melissa Kim, co-founder, chief executive officer, Minted. “We are thrilled to debut this new wedding collection, inspired by and in support of The Met, one of the world’s leading art institutions. The collaboration builds on the success of our holiday card collaboration, now entering its fifth year. The history of art and culture is a rich tapestry of interwoven perspectives. It is incredibly exciting to see our artists participate in that dialog and the stunning designs that resulted from their unparalleled access to The Met’s iconic masterpieces and treasures from the archives. We can’t wait to see how couples personalize and integrate the collection into their big day.” 

This program marks The Met’s first wedding collaboration. The union allows Minted, which has helped over one million couples celebrate their weddings, to lend its design expertise to audiences who want to incorporate art and culture into their unique love story. 

“Encouraging creativity and self-expression are central to The Met’s mission, and our collaboration with Minted activates on that goal in a unique way by allowing customers to make a personal statement on their love of art, design and culture through stationery,” says Stephen Mannello, head of retail and licensing, The Met. “We are so thrilled to be part of this special moment in couples’ lives as they choose to share inspiring images spanning The Met collection with their loved ones in this unique way.”
