Mixbook Review

I had the opportunity to review a custom photo book from Mixbook and I jumped on it because I wanted to get a book made of my youngest, Emily. I was given the 11x 8.5 Classic Landscape book.

Instead of doing my own design layout, I decided to try out one of their premade templates.

This one is called The Rad Plaid.

Very cute!

I have to say, I was nervous using a template, since I'm very anal about doing my own designs. But I liked the way it turned out. The designs were very girlie and cute. They have lots of other templates as well to suit any taste.

I think it's something that photographers could use for their portrait sessions, or weddings. If you don't want to use a template, you can just use a blank custom photo book and insert your own designs.

I also liked that it didnt take very long to print and ship. Sometimes I'm waiting many weeks for my books-I hate that!!

I have used many printing companies, so I had quality to compare to. There are some I would never use again-I won't say who-but, Mixbook is not one of them! quality is great. The binding is solid. A thumbs up for Mixbook!

Thanks for the review. I am always hesitant to take time with an unknown source.
