We've all heard that it's the little things in life that mean the most. At minio, we believe that not only are those mini moments the ones that shape our lives, but they are the ones worth celebrating and sharing. With our high-quality, beautifully-crafted, completely-customizable mini 3" card and box set, we've created the perfect way for you to collect and preserve those special little moments. Our unique format allows you to create a meaningful gift or personal keepsake that is as one-of-a-kind as the experiences within it.

 

 

As three sisters growing up in rural Wisconsin, we were fortunate to have what many would describe as an idyllic childhood in the country. As we got older and moved away, one of us began writing down little things she remembered from growing up and asked the others about similar memories. Small things that would likely only be meaningful to us — ice skating on our pond, picking out seeds to plant in the garden, mom drinking iced tea from the green glass — little moments that made that time in our lives so special. There wasn't really a plan for this collection but when our mom was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, we wanted to give her a truly personal expression of our love and appreciation and the idea of a keepsake box of mini moment cards was formed. Not only was the process of collecting our thoughts an amazing shared experience between the three of us, but the true beauty of the gift was in our mom's (and dad's) reaction. They were not just surprised and touched, but overjoyed at the opportunity to continue to relive those special years through our many "mini moment?. We wanted others to be able to share a similar meaningful experience, so after many iterations and countless redesigns, we are proud to be able to launch our minio box and card collection. We hope this provides you with a special way of sharing your little moments with the loved ones in your life.

Risks and challenges

In this type of project, it is important to note that despite our best efforts, delays in production or in shipping may be possible. In order to minimize these risks, we invested a great deal of time in identifying the best U.S. providers as our partners, based on their standards of excellence, reliability and customer service.

At this time, the pen manufacturer has decided to discontinue the pen shown in the images. We are working with other suppliers to source a similar product.

All pictures are based on prototypes and the final product may differ slightly from the images.
