Create Custom Photo Cards with @Mixbook

I bet you're familiar with Mixbook through their amazing customer promotions and photo books, but did you know that they also have photo cards and invitations?  And that they have tons of great designs too?

Mixbook was very generous in letting us try out their photo card services.  We chose to make and order some custom 5x7 flat Christmas cards for the upcoming holiday season.  It really was hard to choose just one design but in the end we went with one that is a trendy mix of turquoise and red, a hot color combo right now.  

The kids really didn't want to pose for some pics to use on the Christmas cards but in the end, I think I got some pretty good shots to use.  I changed them to black and white and the used Mixbook's easy-to-use built in website software to make our cards.  It truly was very, very easy to use as well as user friendly.  We were impressed with how many additional elements and fonts they have available for use on your cards.  For example, I picked a little blue bird to add to the back of the card because I love birdies so much!  Having all these different elements really allows you to customize your card.

I must also note that I was highly impressed with the quality of the envelopes.  They are made from heavy stock and just really nice, something you don't find often when purchasing cards and invitations.  Definitely a nice touch.

Mixbook has many different styles and themes for cards and invitations such as baby, birthday, wedding, engagement, rehearsal dinner, save the date, showers and more.  You can literally start your own design from scratch or use one of the thousands of professionally designed templates.  Mixbook is also your destination for creating photo books and calendars.  Don't forget to follow Mixbook on Facebook and Twitter for new product announcements and great promotions!
