Mailpix Photo Review and Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.


I love to take photos and I have family photos in frames all over my house. I always have a camera at the ready between my iPhone and my Nikon DSLR. Photography is a hobby of mine and my favorite subjects are my family. I have fallen behind in ordering prints and creating photo gifts since having kids. I just never have enough time – I doubt I am alone at being behind and needing more time. I was excited to be given credit to order photo gifts and prints from Mailpix and review my order. Mailpix also graciously offered to do a giveway to one lucky fan!  I am very excited to share with you why you want to win this prize and consider using Mailpix for all of your photography needs!


The first thing I knew I just had to order were a set of mugs for my husband and I. I ordered us each a mug with a two photos of us with our kids and a caption in the middle. These mugs are wonderful. I ordered the 15oz mugs and they are a great size for a large cup of coffee. They are very sturdy and look great. These mugs were really easy to customize when ordering. I was able to choose a layout, background, font color, and I could make my photo within the layout I picked larger or smaller. These mugs would make wonderful gifts for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day! Grandparents always love a mug with photos of their grandchildren and they are so easy to make.  I had good intentions of making my husband a Dad mug for quite some time now and I am thrilled that I finally made us each a mug.


I love Christmas ornaments and I have tons of them, all of which are special to me. I knew I had to have a photo ornament with a special photo from this Christmas for my tree. I picked a photo that I used on my cards this year. I was very pleased with how it turned out, it’s very sturdy and the photo is vibrant and clear. I will add to the credit of how sturdy this ornament is that I accidentally launched this ornament while taking photos of it for this post and this ceramic ornament hit a ceramic tile floor and bounced without any marks or scratches! I know I was probably just lucky, but it does seem to be very sturdy for a ceramic ornament. It arrived in a padded box perfect for storing in my ornament bin.


These are the 8×10 Photo Canvases I ordered. I decided to order a photo canvas for both my daughter and son’s rooms. The butterfly photo was from an image file and the helicopter photo was from a Facebook photo. I was reluctant to order from a Facebook photo, but it was the only copy I had of this helicopter image. I am very happy with the butterfly canvas – it looks true to the image file I ordered from and my daughter was very excited to have it on display in her room. The helicopter photo is a little fuzzy and I wonder if it was because I ordered from a Facebook image or if having a background of trees printed on canvas made it appear fuzzy. The helicopter image on Facebook didn’t look fuzzy or I wouldn’t have ordered it. Overall, I am happy with both canvases, but I would recommend when ordering a photo product that is going to be on display to order from an image file for the highest clarity.

I have so many photos in frames that I want to have on display and not enough room for more, so I thought coasters would be a great way to display photos without taking up space. The coaster set allows for you to order 6 images and you can choose 6 different images or one image reprinted on 6 coasters. The coasters turned out wonderful and I couldn’t be happier. All of the images are clear and I was able to edit what part of the image I wanted on the coaster when ordering. I have the coasters on display on my bar and I can’t wait to see what comments I might hear from friends who come over. This is another item that would make a wonderful gift! They are sturdy and laminated so I am not worried about using these coasters for drinks, they are sure to live up to the task!


I was extremely impressed when I opened my print order from Mailpix. The quality was superb, the photos crisp, and vibrant. I was happy to see that Kodak photo paper was used for the printing. All of the prints looked professional quality, better than most photo printing services. I shared the print above from a safari park to show you how crisp the prints are. Trust me, you will be very pleased with the quality of prints you review from Mailpix and the price is only .10 a print! Incredible!


One of the user friendly features Mailpix offers is the ability to upload files or order photos from Facebook. In order to provide the best review possible, I ordered the same image from both an image file and Facebook. I suspected that the quality from a Facebook photo may be a little less. The image above the boot on the left is from an image upload and the boot on the right is from a Facebook photo. You can tell that the Facebook image adds some graininess to the photo. The photo quality overall from Facebook is acceptable, but the same photo from an image upload looks professional and frame worth quality. Just something to keep in mind when ordering.

The customer service Mailpix provides is exceptional. One of the mugs I ordered arrived with a white blotch across a face. I emailed late on a Monday evening, had an apology on Tuesday and a promise to rush ship a new one, and a new mug in hand on Thursday! Way to go Mailpix! Fast turnaround is appreciated, especially if I had ordered that mug as a gift. Everything I ordered arrived quickly and the fragile photo gifts were all packaged very well and protected.

Want to preserve some of your holiday memories? What would you choose? Canvas, photo gifts, or prints? Here’s your chance! Enter and win a $50 credit to Mailpix – choose your own prize!
