Mixbook Review

These days there are a ton of sites that let you upload pictures to create things like photo cards, photo albums, and gifts.  More than we can keep track of.

So how do you decide what site to use?  Are some more user friendly than others?  Do some have more design options?

Well, I have a unique website to tell you about called Mixbook.

Mixbook is an 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. 

Mixbook is great for:

* Making customizable photobooks, calendars, announcements, invitations, and stationary

* Digital Scrapbooking with thousands of free designs

* Yearbooks for your homeschool, school, or group

* Gifts for family or friends

With Mixbook you have complete freedom of design.  I made a custom card and it was simple.  After taking a look around the site, I decided to make some thank you cards.  Once I found the template I wanted, I could add and take away from it as I pleased.  I could add photos, choose from different layouts, background colors and textures, shapes, designs, and stickers.

You can see that in a couple easy steps I added some stickers and changed the font.  Isn't it cute?!!

Of course you can create more than just thank you cards.  You can make photo birth announcements, party invitations, wedding invitations, and more.  Just about anything you can think of.

My Thoughts:  I actually had a fun time making my custom cards.  I really enjoyed looking through all of their stickers and backgrounds until I found exactly what I wanted.  A feature that I really like is that you can add contributors to your project.  So if you are making a gift for a teacher or a yearbook for your class, you can add friends who can view it and make changes.

I received 30 thank you cards and envelopes and they are beautiful and sturdy.
