What is Mixbook?
Mixbook is a site where you can create fun and beautiful, custom photo books, photo cards, photo birth announcements, invitations, stationary, photo calendars, digital scrapbooking, yearbooks and gifts.
Mixbook is really neat, much like other sites that promise you quality custom photo gifts and cards. But what made Mixbook standout to me was the complete freedom I had to design my project. I was able to snag photos from my Facebook account, Picasa account and of course my computer. Not to mention the designing elements, there were so many options to choose from. It made my project fun and exciting, knowing that I had full creative control. With that creative design control, I decided to take my 30 5x7 Flat Custom Photo Birth Announcement Cards and morph them into something that I'd love, appreciate and others could appreciate too, for its creativity and originality when they received it in the mail. I made them into note cards featuring my most favorite little princess, Isabella!
It started like this:
And by the time I was done with it, I turned it into this:
When I received them I was very pleased with the quality of the card stock, though I have minor regrets as it pertains to the coating of the cards. Had I thought it out better, I would've gotten the "Budget" Uncoated Basic Card stock instead of the Classic Coated, though it made for a beautiful presentation of the cards, it made writing on them a bit of a challenge. Next time I'll more than likely go with the basic card stock for this purpose.
**PS. When you like them on Facebook, you'll receive coupon codes for $10 off and $15 off of your purchases. So definitely check them out.**
