Mixbook Review & Valentine's Day Promo Code!

I was so excited when the opportunity to partner with the folks at Mixbook came up right before the New Year. It gave me the chance to make the perfect family photo album for my dear hubby for Valentine's Day!

Mixbook offers a wide variety of photo gifts that can be personalized - from photo books to calendars to event and holiday cards. Their online platform allows for unlimited photo storage, a super nifty auto-fill feature for multi-photo layouts and a very user-friendly editing and template tool.

I chose to turn a year's worth of my fur babies' photos into a 2015 Shannon Family album for Jon as a Valentine's Day gift.

Photo book size options range from 12"x"12 to 8.5"x8.5". You can select from softcover or hardcover, depending on your desire. I chose the 8.5"x8.5" sized hardcover book because it would fit perfectly on our growing bookcase of photo albums.

I had a difficult time selecting a template as there were so many to choose from. After much hemming and hawing, I finally chose Chalkboard Sayings because I loved the dark color scheme contrasting with the white lettering and borders.

Each Mixbook template comes with pre-determined page layouts, but you can customized as you see fit. I loved that a lot of the design was done for me - sometimes my creative juices are dried up. There were a few page layouts that required high-resolution photos that I didn't have available, so I was able to quickly and easily modify the layout on my own to accommodate the photos I did have and wanted to include in my photo book.



My photo book included 76 different images and it took me about an hour to make from my laptop. The program itself was easily to use. And once I created an account, my project saved from time to time so I didn't lose what I was working on if I accidentally logged out of my computer.

I ordered my photo book on 1/22 and it arrived carefully packed in cardboard on 1/29. Such a quick processing time! I was floored when I unwrapped my book. The quality is amazing. The pages themselves are thick and the entire book is professional quality. I couldn't be happier.



And of course, I'm terrible at keeping secrets. So I ended up giving Jon his Valentine's Day gift two weeks early. Oops! But he LOVED it!

My readers will be happy to know there's currently a Mixbook promotion going on for up to 40% off all items plus an additional 20% off sale prices using the promo code VDY16 but hurry! This offer ends Monday, 2/1!


Happy Couponing!
