Photos are priceless and after getting married all I wanted was to have a few nice canvas prints, along with a custom photo album to keep and cherish forever. I didn’t want to break the bank so I made sure I did my research to find great prices with high quality and somewhere that wouldn’t cost me in duty.
I came across Mixbook right away! They really caught my eye with their great website! It was so easy to access their prices, navigate around, and see everything they offer! Honestly when looking at other companies I found them to be dark and hard to find what I was looking for, where Mixbook has a very bright clean look with easy access to everything.
Along with the quick and easy navigation, I found the prices to be great! When I placed my order they had everything up to 50% off. Mixbook seems to always have some sort of promotion going on, so you’ll never pay full price! This is a huge bonus because if your like me you probably expect to pay a lot for high quality canvas and photo products, but this is not the case with Mixbook.
First I started off with our wedding album, I wanted it to be our wedding in a book, tell a story and not just look generic. I knew finding somewhere that would completely allow me to customize and add my own touches could be hard, but when it came to Mixbook that’s completely what they are about!
When creating an album, you get a huge selection of themes, sizes and customizable options. After going through this huge selection, I picked a 8×6 Landscape Matte Hardcover photo book in the theme Modern Wedding from the Wedding Photo Book section.
I got to work right away, with the mini tutorial and many pre-designed customizable pages, designing was effortless! You could add any text, stickers and create anything you wanted with no extra cost. A great thing I found Mixbook offers is when designing an album you can be downloading photos while you play around! I found this to be a huge bonus, I never had to wait and risk getting side tracked.
After my easy wedding album designing I went straight to the home decor section to check out their canvas options!! I found out really fast that Mixbook offers four different photo printing options, Canvas Prints , Metal Prints , Acrylic Prints & Poster Prints. Every option is really well described and they have photos to help visualize, I found this to be very helpful.
I chose the original Canvas prints, I picked it based on what I was using my photos for and price. Since I have never ordered Canvas prints before, I didn’t feel I needed anything fancy. Although I do wish somedays I went with the Acrylic Prints just because at the time they were only a few bucks more for a little better quility.
When it came to creating the canvas prints it was just as easy as the album. You download a photo, pick a size, and tweak it. You can also add a frame, they have three colour choices! Overall I loved how easy and effortless it was to create a Canvas print. You just needed to know the picture, size and away you went!
In total I ordered seven things, one album and six canvas prints all ranging in sizes and price!My total for all seven pieces was CAD $451.63 and I saved a total of CAD $403.48! Like I said above Mixbook has great pricing as you can tell from my huge savings! The company is also Canadian so did not have to pay any duty!
The order was shipped Canada Post and came within a week from my order being placed. The speedy shipping was a huge surprise! I was expecting them to take a good week or two, maybe even longer! When they arrived I was also pleasantly surprised with how well they came packaged, you could tell the company didn’t just through them in a box and ship them off!
From the moment everything arrived I could tell I made the right decision picking Mixbook! Every product I ordered was perfect and so worth every penny! You can really tell Mixbook strives to provide the best products on the market along with top notch customer service! From start to finish working with Mixbook was a breeze! Their great user-frienly software, helpful customer service, and final products are perfect!
