Mixbook Redefines Photo Calendar Creation

The Only Collaborative Photo Book Creation Solution Brings Ease of Use, Creativity to the Tired, Traditional Calendar Space

SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwire – October 28, 2010) –  Mixbook, the free online photo service that offers the most customizable photo books and photo cards on the planet, today announced that it is redefining the photo calendar marketplace by offering the first fully customizable, collaborative calendar builder, bringing unlimited creativity and flexibility to what has traditionally been a very structured, frustrating yearly photo project.

“In 2010, people are no longer happy to accept static, restrictive designs and layouts. They want to build calendars that not only reflect their personalities, but are specifically geared towards the dates they care most about,” said Andrew Laffoon, CEO and co-founder, Mixbook. “With our new calendars, we’ve taken the unlimited creative flexibility and social collaboration features of Mixbook and applied them to one of the most popular holiday gifts. People can now build their calendars with their families, friends and co-workers, and can easily access the photos they most want, no matter who took them. We look forward to seeing how the content and format of calendars will change this holiday season as our customers usher in a new era of ‘social calendaring.'”

As with Mixbook’s comprehensive line of photo books and cards, Mixbook’s new photo calendars are completely customizable, and they enable social calendar creation through Mixbook’s unique collaboration features, letting users pool together their photos and build calendars that capture the essence of their family or organization. In addition, because of the speed and simplicity of the proven Mixbook Editor, calendar makers no longer have to worry about losing their work while in process or having difficulty creating projects that fit their specific needs — or even the orientation of their photos — as is often experienced with other calendar solutions.

Mixbook calendars are currently available in two sizes, 12″x12″and 11″x8.5.” Mixbook calendar creators can:

  • Add photos from a number of photo sharing sites including Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, and Smugmug;
  • Feature your own special days such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries, and vacations right in your calendar, even including a picture, stickers, or a caption on the actual date on the calendar;
  • Add and remove holidays as you wish;
  • Use different backgrounds on each page, both for the featured picture page and behind the calendar dates themselves; and
  • Enjoy a constantly growing list of themes, including related “sticker” elements to further personalize your calendars.

Mixbook calendars are available now starting at $19.99. For more information or to start your calendar today, please visit http://www.mixbook.com/photo-calendars.
