They are truly deserving of our gratitude, love, and now you can thank them with a Mixbook theme book.

New Theme: New York

The newest theme in our Travel series takes us to the Big Apple! New York City is the focus, with stickers of taxis, subway signs, pizza boxes, famous landmarks and more. We’re excited to bring your travel stories to life with these embellishments and backgrounds. I recently took a trip to NYC, and am excited to use this to document my “Autumn in New York” book. Feel free to send suggestions for other Travel theme locations – we’d love to hear your feedback about what cities to design next!

Hello Mixbookers,

There have been a few questions sent to us about how to post your photo books to Facebook, and it’s so easy that we’re going to teach you how to do it! Check it out!

1. Go to your Mixbook’s viewing page and highlight the website URL link

Then you’ll want to click CTRL+C  or right-click to Copy the link. Be sure that your book is not set to private — it must be public in order to share it on Facebook.

2. Go to Facebook and paste the website link into the comment box for your wall or someone else’s wall

You’ll notice that the thumbnail for your book will appear — then all you have to do is click “Share” to share it on the wall. You’re practically done!

3. Once you share it, you can click to play your book!

4. Then your book will pop out and play! You’re done!

Now all you need to do is invite your friends and family to take a look at your new Mixbook creation!
