Mailpix: Turning images into memories

Have you heard of MailPix? As parents we take a million pictures of our kids, which is great. the problem ... we take them on digital cameras & phones, images saved on memory cards, our computers, facebook, instagram etc.

I know that personally very rarely do i actually make physical copies of my photos. I am always looking for the perfect site to do so. Well i found it!

MailPix has dozens of options to choose from. Photo books, print enlargements, canvas, greeting cards, iphone cases, coffee mugs, blankets, you get the idea, you can pretty much put your pictures where you please!

I was recently given the opportunity to order & review a Brag Book. The process was so easy. You just upload your photos & then drag & drop. easy peasy. you can order these brag books in two different sizes. 5x7 or 4x6 with anywhere from 5 to 40 pages. & i think the prices are great! $18 for a 40 page 5x7 brag book. Whats so cool is you can choose how you want the pages. One photo per page, or multiple photos per page, Border or no border. Text or no text. You can even change the background on the pages & it is truly so easy to navigate. Each brag book also comes with a plastic cover.

I went ahead & took this opportunity to grab all of our pictures from our disney world spring break vacation last year & made a brag book. If you follow me on facebook, twitter or instagram, you've already seen it, i was thrilled when it came, it turned out fantastic. It is so awesome to have our whole vacation all in one spot, a spot i can physically touch. memories i can pick up & look through & not have to log into facebook to see them.

In about a week & half we're heading across the state for vacation. If you follow me on social media, you also know i just got a new camera. I already told jeremiah, you can expect me to take a million pictures & come home & make a brag book :)

Head on over to their website & be sure to go check them out on twitter & facebook
