Did I ever tell you I was a scrapbooker…I like to think that I still am, but let’s face it I haven’t scrapbooked in a few years. I might have made a card or two recently…but that’s it. With blogs and digital sharing I found that I hardly EVER print pictures. So I have turned to making photo books, and I LOVE IT!
I have tried a few photobook companies and found that the quality varies between the companies. I was super excited to try Mixbook and see how they compare.
Mixbook is the easy and fun way to make completely customizable photo books, cards, and calendars on the web – for free. With Mixbook, you aren’t limited to static pre-designed templates – their powerful design software gives you the freedom to lay out and design your creations to your heart’s content: “We’ve dedicated ourselves to bringing you the best experience in creating photo products so that you can make keepsakes that truly reflect your vision. With Mixbook, you can truly Make It Yours™.”
Making the photobook was EASY. I have tried other photobook companies and you have to download their software, which is ok, but I enjoyed being able to access the mixbook site ANYWHERE and editing my book. Their design software was fun; different colored & design pages, fun fonts, layouts or free pages, stickers & additives. It was just like I was scrapbooking.
Mixbook Delivered! We chose to have ground shipping which was a great price & it actually arrived earlier than estimated.
We loved the photobook! I am always anxious to see how my creations turn out. The book looks fantastic. I chose the 8.5 x 11 landscape, hardcover & gloss finish. The hardcover is solid, I like the gloss for easy wipe-off IF a kid gets something on it. The picture quality was, well, QUALITY. The colors, stickers, and extra designs look first class. My husband comments: “Wow, those pictures look like they are just sitting on the page. The quality is Great!” My kids love looking at the book.
Mixbook makes it so easy to create your own photo books. The kind folks at Mixbook.com have shared a GREAT discount just for MoanaSaves Readers!
