Chatbooks: Saving each Instagram account, 60 photos at a time.
I was introduced to Chatbooks by a friend last Christmas and was instantly intrigued.
- IG photo preservation that isn’t virtual
- Two options of books to preserve IG photos
- Automatic shipping
- Easy options to change/manipulate an order before its shipped
The question I asked myself was: Do I find my Instagram photos to be worth saving outside of the Instagram app?
The answer was a definite, YES.
When sharing on Social Media I only share the photos that are most important to me and that (most often) have a story behind them. Gone are my younger years when I shared every last photo I ever took of an occasion. Nope. Not interested in that, at all. I find it to be less authentic and feel a point can be made and a bigger impact felt by sharing a few meaningful photos, or photos that capture the eye, or photos that are telling of yourself and your own personal story, or of others, in a positive, heartfelt way. The photos (and I take a lot) that aren’t shared on Social Media platforms are uploaded on a monthly basis to Snapfish for storage, print and photo album creation, for my own personal use.
But, Instagram? That’s where I like to post my favorite photos. The ones that encompass who I am, what I believe in, the friendships I cherish, the family moments, the vacations, the scenery. My IG photos tell a story. With Chatbooks I get to preserve that story in the form of a book, forever.
Chatbooks started in 2014 by a husband and wife duo looking to preserve memories with little time investment. The company has grown to employ over 85 individuals across the country but remain “small” in nature to provide a foundation built on people and individuals. Their motto:
“Chatbooks exists to help people hold on to what matters.”
What Options Are There?
With Chatbooks you have two options. The Chatbook Series Option and the Custom Chatbooks option.
I use the Chatbook Series option.
Series books are ongoing and linked to Instagram, Facebook or even your own camera roll favorites. For every 60 photos uploaded, Chatbooks will create a new album, (or in their words, Volume) and send it to you for $8. Automatically. Three days before shipment you get an email where you can manipulate some of the photos/captions by removing anything unnecessary.
Chatbooks also includes the accompanying caption and the date uploaded.
Chatbooks has an awesome support center where all your questions can be answered at the click of a button:
I love my Chatbooks collection and I know I will love them even more as the years go by, their purpose evolves and the documentation becomes even more significant.
Life is big and beautiful and I ❤ to live it.
