Introducing Mini Epic

Are you looking for some epic party invites to stand out from the crowd?  Then look no further because Live Laugh Giraffe is super happy to introduce Mini Epic, the place to find a little something different


Mini-Epic is a new online platform where parents can create and send personalised video invitations for children’s parties.

With a range of delightfully animated themed party templates such as Bowling, Football, Baking, Science, Superhero and more, each video invitation has been designed to capture your guests’ imagination and provide the host with a simple way of managing their RSVPs.

Created by Jonathan Shine, a professional motion graphics designer, Mini-Epic has had some help from two very special members of his family…his twin daughters Hannah and Isabella.

“Last year my daughters asked me if I could create an animated video invitation for their birthday party. So we sat down to sketch out a few ideas and their imagination just blew me away. A year later and we’ve launched Mini-Epic’s first range of invitations for children’s parties.  I’d love to say it was all me, but they help me all the time with new ideas and sketches of their own.”


The new platform is attracting a lot of parents, especially with the start of the new school term, but that has it’s ups and downs, especially for a new business.

” We’re in a continual mode of updating the website with new features and creating new templates based on our customers’ feedback. Whilst we know that creating your personalised video invitation works great on a desktop computer, we’re still in the process of making it work as smoothly on mobile devices. It’s been a very steep learning curve! “

Mini-Epic was originally launched in 2016 with a range of invitations for adults celebrating birthdays, hen and stag parties, but after three months of trading the sales were so low that Jonathan was contemplating closing the site down.

“I hit a real low point. All the effort, time and expense of building the site and creating the templates seemed to be amounting to nothing.  I think my daughters must have sensed it wasn’t going well because that was the time they asked me to create one for their birthday party. After a couple of weeks we sent it out and the response was amazing.  Soon I had friends asking me to create one for their child’s party and that was the turning point.”

Online invitations aren’t new, but Mini-Epic’s adventurous and playful approach to them, combined with the fact that they are personalised videos, and can automatically collect your guests’ RSVPs, makes them stand out as a great way to kick-start the party, and at just £9.99 for 30 invitations, they’re affordable too.
