*Our Holiday Gift Guide* MailPix

*This Is A Guest Post From Amanda At Open Hands, Read Her Review & Enter To Win!* is the brainchild of Fred Lerner, a lifelong photo entrepreneur. This site was started from his concern that a whole generation of photo memories -- stored online, on discs, in cameras and in smartphones -- will be lost to future generations unless preserved as photo books, prints, cards, enlargements and other tangible products.
The goal of MailPix is to keep costs low and pass savings along to consumers. Using the latest easy-to-use web technology integrated with social media, Fred is passionate about introducing more people to the importance of "Turning Images into Memories." When he couldn't find it, he built it himself.

 I love taking pictures and we love giving pictures of our kiddos as Christmas presents to family members. We have put them on coffee mugs, cookie jars, magnets, etc. Those precious items are always a hit with the grandparents for Christmas or other special occasions.

 Recently I was given the chance to try out the new company Mailpix. I started browsing their site and was excited at the great items they had to offer. They have fun items from fleece blankets to coasters and everything in between.

 I chose to get some things for our home with my credit, I have been wanting a canvas to hang in our home but they are always so expensive, so I thought this was a great opportunity to get one. When it arrived it was actually the wrong picture.....I had uploaded a picture and then changed my mind and loaded a different one, but somehow I was sent the first picture I loaded. However I contacted them right away and within days I had the correct canvas sent to me. I was very pleased with the customer service I received.

Every year for Christmas I order my in-laws a Calendar with pictures of us throughout the year. We live 12 hrs apart so its a fun way to keep them informed on all the happenings of our previous year. And...well they are hard to buy for and this is a gift that pleases year after year ;-) I really like the way this calendar turned out and the price on it was great. (Sorry no photos of that, just incase my mother in law reads this post)

The last thing I ordered was a photo book. I have started to order one every year of the years happenings. I used to scrapbook before kids and, well now I just don't have the time, so this has become my solution. I typically wait until January to order my photo books so it will have the whole previous year in it, but I really wanted to compare the quality with the one I typically order. I LOVE the way my photo book turned out, my only complaint is price point wise it was a tad more expensive than I normally pay for mine. But I do feel like I had more options as far as layout of the book goes, so for that reason I would definitely order from them again.

    Overall I was impressed with MailPix, my order did take a couple weeks to get to me which I did feel was a little too long. But like I said earlier this is a new site, so I am sure once they get some kinks worked out the process will speed up a bit.

  MailPix does have a great variety of products and the prices are very reasonable so I would give them a try :) One of you will win a $50 credit to be used on this site. Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win. This giveaway will remain open until Friday December 14th. Good Luck!
