I was given a GC to spend on Mailpix. I started looking at the different options, and then decided what I wanted the most. Shipping was very quick (within 9 business days). Here is my box of goodies!
They had a sale going on where their mugs were only $5 a piece. I chose seven of those (one of each member of my family except my Mom, who doesn't use mugs). I used the pictures from a family play we recently did.
Don;t they look great?!? I think they do. Everyone in my family except for my mom and I are big coffee drinkers (we like tea) so these will make great gifts for them.
I also chose a keychain for my mom. She likes to have one keychain from each attraction that we visit, but somehow missed one at the Dallas Zoo. She loved the Koala Bear at the Zoo so I took the picture of the Koala and added Dallas Zoo and the date.
She will love it! I think it turned out really well. It feels very sturdy, and it looks really nice with the silver border.
Next they had a special going on where you would get a free Brag Book (photo book), so I created one of those as well.
It came out really well. I did some pictures of our dogs, pictures from our play, and just some of the family!
It printed really well (sorry about the glare - this was the best that I could get).
Next I designed a set of coasters. Six come with the set, and you can either use one picture for all six coasters, or you can use a different picture for each coaster.
I had a couple of dollars left so I had some prints made (the first 100 were free for setting up an account and then the other 200 were a penny a print :). I have always liked having physical prints for our frames, etc. and now we have plenty. :)
The last thing I chose is a Tote Bag with a front pocket. I made a collage of my two dogs (Shadow - my Schipperke, and Princess Pansy - my Sheltie) and uploaded that picture to use on my tote bag.
I think it turned out wonderful. I love being able to carry around pictures of my dogs and show them off! :)
Mailpix is a great customized/photo company with very reasonable prices! I was amazed with how low their prices were (yet their items are high-quality!). They are also constantly running sales. Make sure you go check them out! Everyone loves to receive customized photo products - it makes gifts even more special!
Mailpix is going to send one of my Agents a 8x10 Canvas (their most popular)! Wow! Think what a gift that would make?!?
