Mixbook is a photo products company that helps people create custom photo books, cards, and calendars. They offer tons of beautiful holiday card designs. The site is easy to navigate - the hard part for me was narrowing down the choices. I wanted a set of 30 5x7 flat Christmas cards. Finally, I picked the Red Wishes design. This two-sided card allowed me to use three photos on the front and three on the back. I could customize the text of our greeting, the font, the background, and use special effects for the pictures. I went back and forth, testing many different options, until I decided to use black and white versions of the family photos. I had them cropped in a round shape for the front of the card and a combination of round and oval shapes for the back. I tweaked a little the default background on the front of the card and changed it to light blue on the back. I loved how I could easily customize every single element of our cards!
The set I received was printed on premium matte cardstock and had a luxurious feel and look. The holiday cards are absolutely gorgeous. Even my husband commented on how beautiful they turned out this year. The cards arrived within days, complete with premium white envelopes. All I have to do is print out address labels and add stamps. The whole process was easy and fun. I will be looking into the Mixbook calendars and photo books next - these make wonderful gifts for close friends and family.
