Mixbook review via US Family Guide

As a member of US Family Guide bloggers, I was given the chance to review Mixbook. Mixbook is a Google Trusted Store that has so many wonderful products to choose from. 
They are an excellent source of photo gifts. I love that they have things such as yearbooks and specialized photo books, like a cookbook version! 
I chose to make the Our Story photo book for my Mom.
There are three options as far as sizes and shape goes. They also ship within 1-2 business days. 

Everything was a click and drop as far as creating the book. There are some lovely quotes already in it. I actually had to get more pictures to fill the 20 page book. By page 16, I'd exhausted all the ones I'd picked from my computer storage. 
There was one thing that bugged me about the ordering process. Even though I had Mixbook credits in my account, I still had to enter a card for payment. I don't like having to use my card unnecessarily. I did, however, like the fact that as a part of the Google Trusted Store group, Google ensures my orders up to $1,000. Its like having free insurance added. 
The book was very nice. A sturdy little paperback that I know my Mom will love. Its a slightly larger version of the common brag book. Sadly, the post office thought that bending it slightly and ripping it open as they shoved it into my mailbox would work just as well. So my book has a crease on the binding side that I'm hoping will lessen with proper care. Definitely check them out and see what goodies you might create. Gifting has begun with the new year! 


  1. Looks like good quality. Glad you mentioned the card info.

    1. It is! And that's the only part I didn't like about this one.
