Custom Photo Gifts – A VivoPrint Review and $50 Giftcard Give-away!


bannerOK – if you are my parent or my spouse you need to not read this post. Trust me. It’s for all good reasons.  You’ll find out why soon enough just…. tell all your friends to read it but stop scrolling now. Come back tomorrow for What Do You Think? Wednesday. It’ll be great. Thanks. You guys are the best.  I love you!

Now… everyone else… carry on.

Vivoprint contacted me and asked if I would be willing to do an honest review of their products in exchange for some free samples. I agreed, admittedly a little uncertain. I’ve seen similar products from other companies and been unimpressed.

It turns out I had nothing to worry about.  The items I received were gorgeous!

Vivoprint offers phone cases, electronic accessories, and a nice selection of gift/promotional items.  I was looking at items with the idea of giving them as presents but they would be great tools for promoting a business as well!

For less than $50, including shipping, I was able to get 3 great gifts!  The Vivoprint website is incredibly easy to navigate and the instructions for uploading your photos are clear and simple. The trickiest part was figuring out which photos I wanted to use and editing them to fit the shape of the items I chose.

I sent them this photo…

And got this great phone case for my mom.  Her 80th birthday is coming up in just a few weeks and she’s turning into an iPhone master. I love that she doesn’t fear technology. She truly is the youngest octogenarian I’ve ever known! I wish that I had a really great camera that could truly show how sharp the colors are. Any blurriness is due to my camera, not the product they sent me. The images are very crisp and bright. I chose the matte finish for the phone case because the description said it made it a little easier to hold on to. The do offer a glossy finish as well.

For my dad I ordered one of the color changing mugs for father’s day. He drinks coffee all day every day so I know he’ll use it and he loves showing off his grandkids. This will make it super easy for him.  The color changing feature fascinates me. I could play with this cup all day.  What can I say? I’m easily amused.

My original (I did have to edit it a bit from this to fit the shape of the cup and add the text, but this is very close to what I used):

Handsome Hippie Hubby got one too.

Everything came out just beautifully!

One other thing I wanted to mention was the great packaging.  Admittedly, the Hippie side of me cringes at all things styrofoam. That said, we’ve ordered things in the past, from other companies, and been sad to open a box full of broken glass when our products arrived.  These were so perfectly packaged I have to think they could have survived even the most severe weary-postal-worker treatment.

  1. Yes, I could easily find a 1,001 ways to use the giftcard 🙂 I literally JUST made a purchase for mailing labels but I love gifting coffee mugs/personalized tshirts for family members. Great giveaway!!

  2. I get customized calendars and mugs every year for Christmas. I’ve never used this company though, I’ll definitely have to give them a try. Mother’s Day is coming up!!
