First of all, in the spirit of full disclosure, let me tell you. I am an affiliate for Mixbook, just like I'm an affiliate for Panstoria and the Panstoria Print Shop. That means that when someone orders through my link, it doesn't cost them anything extra, but I get a commission from Mixbook or Panstoria as a thank you for the referral. These little commissions are what help me keep this site going.
Let me also explain this: I don't recommend these things here until I've tried them or plan to try them myself. It's just not worth it for me to recommend something to you that you won't be happy with. There are a few other photobook printers that I am also affiliated with, but you haven't heard about them here because I don't have experience with them yet.
With that said, I have received my Mixbook photobook, and I really like it. The color turned out just the way I created it, and the print quality is great. I got the standard binding, which seems tight and just as good as the other storybooks I had printed previously. Of course, I haven't run extensive tests on the binding.
I do have a few other “tests” planned for this year, but right now it's on to creating my family calendar.
You've heard me mention that I create one at Christmas time for my in-laws, but somehow, my personal family calendar runs April to March, so it's just about done. That's the fun thing about this … you can start with any month you want. (As far as I know, you can't yet add more than the traditional 12 pages.)
Hope you're having a great time with your photos! Until the next time, Enjoy!
