Mixbook kindly sent us a coupon code to try them out and tell everyone what we think of them. While it was enjoyable to work with a photo printing service that is 100% customizable I don't think I would use Mixbook except for special gifts or occasions. The quality is great, but the price still has me turning to their competitors like Groovebook.
Mixbook allows users to begin with either a blank book or an existing template that can then be edited to their liking. Mixbook also has a unique collaboration feature which allows our users to invite friends and family to work on a project together. This is a BIG plus for Family Tree Builders!
I found the process difficult, and honestly never even finished checking out with my complimentary Mixbook. I think if I had a few day, weeks, or years fussing with their software I'd be able to make an incredible masterpiece.
I would recommend Mixbook for the next time you find yourself looking to give a unique gift, but I don't recommend it for the technically challenged.
