Thanks for stopping by!
Minting Memories is owned and operated by Andrew, Kate and Jane, we're a small family with a big love for beautiful design, creative endevours and supporting small businesses. Here's our story...
In a large department store is where most people start, and we did too. This was going to be the first Christmas in our new home and we would be hosting the whole family, so we were looking for something special to start a new tradition with ornaments for everyone.
We did find some but the quality didn't really wow us. Left feeling a bit underwhelmed by what was on offer we knew that with Andrew's experience with CNC and Laser cutting that he could try to make something special and unique! So we came up with some designs and Andrew got to work creating.
The first iteration of our Christmas ornaments was created!
Displayed proudly on the tree, there was one for everyone in the family.
Seeing them on our tree felt so wonderful, soon our friends started asking where they could get some too, so we made a few sets for friends. Then their friends began asking! It was so lovely to see other people really loved and appreciated them too.
When Andrew's sister Jane first saw these items in person, she knew right then we could create something wonderful. Jane came up with a plan (she loves a plan) to build a business that would provide us with creative freedom, flexibility and the opportunity to create a lasting family legacy.
With small kids now part of our family, we were starting to look for unique gifts to give to friends and their kids too. Not just another toy, but something that would be treasured, and perhaps even passed onto the next generation.
We started designing some incredible wooden keepsakes for our friends and family to celebrate births and birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas, pouring hundreds of hours into researching the best materials and perfecting the cutting and etching techniques.
The plaques, signs and ornaments from Minting Memories have been specifically designed to level-up those celebrations where you will make memories that last a lifetime.
From Andrew, Kate and Jane, we are honoured you have chosen us to be part of those joyful moments and we can't wait to see more of those beautiful family memories for years to come.
