Mixbook Customizable Photo Book Review!
I was excited about getting to make a Photobook at Mixbook but the big question was what to make a photo book of? I had already made a Christmas photo book so…what else could I do?
Then I saw the Mixbook album called “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” and I knew EXACTLY what I was going to make a book of! Our Day Out With Thomas!
From the website: Mixbook photo books are 100% customizable, allowing users to begin with either a blank book or an existing template that can then be edited to their liking. Mixbook also has a unique collaboration feature which allows our users to invite friends and family to work on a project together. We offer competitive pricing and our email subscribers often receive exclusive discounts. Also, our customers love us and consistently give us a 5-star rating.
They aren’t kidding when they say their books are 100% customizable! Every graphic on the page is moveable, replaceable and deletable! I chose to start with the template above but loved the ability to change and move things to my liking.
This is a page I did from scratch. Even the train graphic was in individual pieces – I could’ve done just the engine or I could’ve done more cars. I could’ve made it bigger or smaller. You just don’t have that kind of control on other photo book sites!
Here is one of my favorite pages done from the template. The quote was already there and I liked it so I left it. There were quotes on some of the other pages but since it’s fully customizable, I took those off! I added some captions on a few pages too. To show you even more how customizable these are on the page below I could’ve taken away the train tracks in the background individually. I could’ve taken the train and hills off the bottom or the filmstrip off the top.
It’s an 8.5×11 landscape, hardcover bound book. Excellent color and excellent quality! These start at $23.99 for 20 pages.
OR you can WIN one right here! Mixbook has generously offered one reader a 20-page, 11×8.5 landscape, hardcover photo book with free US Ground shipping!! (Code for free book will expire on 8/31/11 so make sure you can use it by then if you win!)
