I did my invitations through Mixbook, and then went back and did our guestbook and thank-you notes. Once we're married, I'll likely be doing our photo book through them, too. I couldn't be happier and their turnaround times are fantastic. Reply I second that vouch! Easy interface, responsive customer service and quick! I did my invitations and will definitely try them for a book. Reply I was persuaded by this post and seriously considering using Mixbook. Then I got to the "Enter your details and we'll add them to the design" page and saw only entries for "Groom-to-be's name" and "Bride-to-be's name." I'm disappointed that they only offered heterosexual pairings as options. For this reason, I don't plan on using them. Reply This is great feedback — we're passing it onto the folks at Mixbook! Reply Awesome! Thanks! Reply After seeing this post, I made and ordered my Save the Dates! They are amazing looking and have already shipped! I can't wait to see how they look in print. I found lovely celtic knots and was able to incorporate a goofy photo and a pretty photo and our Han Solo "I know" quote even made it onto the back of the invite under a super cute picture of our shoes. I'm totally jazzed right now. I've even passed on their info to my cousin who is getting married and she's picked out her design. THANK YOU!
