Mama Nibbles: MailPix - Affordable Custom Photo Gifts Review

MailPix - Affordable Custom Photo Gifts Review



     Recently I placed a large order with a company called MailPix.com.  They specialize in printing all sorts of unique photo items and gifts.  Their prices are quite reasonable and the quality amongst their different items varies a little.  Most items are very nice and a great value for the price.
     One of the items that was a slight disappointment for me was their personalized fleece blanket.  The blanket ended up being a bit thinner than I'd imagined.  I'm scared to wash it for fear it will disappear.  The quality of the print was very high thanks to the high resolution digital photo that I borrowed from a dear photographer friend over at amandamaedesign.com.  She had taken a gorgeous photo of a purple flower on a trip to Ireland and I'd fallen in love with it so I just had to have it printed on a few things!  The bright colors came out very nicely in every print.  Another thing about the blanket was that my text did not print like it had shown up online.  The wording I chose to add at the top fell off of the edges.  I have been told not to worry for future orders though, the webmaster would be fixing that issue right away.
     Word to the wise, be sure to use the highest res photo that you have available for a large item like this!  You do not want to end up with a blurry mess.  I need to add that I ordered a second blanket to replace this one.  That blanket was no better, the text still fell off of the edges.  I was reassured that this issue would be worked on though.  MailPix is after all is brand new to the web, they had some kinks to work out. 


     The next items that I ordered were some custom 4"x6" wallet magnets.  The quality was very nice, the coloring was vibrant and the edges did not seem like they could come apart.  My only gripe was that my text had been cut off.  This was again another website issue that needed fixing and tweaking.  I was assured that this would be fixed as well so that future orders would not end up looking chopped off.  I reordered the same magnets for the second time.  The second set still had the exact same issue and I was left with a pile of magnets that were useless as gifts.  I was reassured that MailPix would be looking into the text issue.

      Next item that I ordered several of was the custom 11 oz mug.  This mug is wonderful!  My photo printed onto it perfectly and I was happy with the end result.  The mugs wash up nicely and seem like they are made to last.  I like these and definitely recommend ordering them.  There is a second larger 15 oz size that is great too.  If you keep watch these could go on sale again, mine were $5 each!  The styrofoam box that the mug comes in keeps it safe from breakage during shipping.  Just click the deals tab on MailPix to check.  Several items go on sale each month and there are some super deals to be had!
     I'm not going to go into every detail with the rest of my order items.  I will say that the 8"x10" photos I ordered were perfection, the shopping bags were beautiful and high quality and the 8"x8" prints were lovely!   Each print was crisp looking, the color was spot on and the paper was high quality that they were printed on.  I definitely say order some prints!
