I take a lot of photos, I carry around a camera wherever I go.. and yet I print none. Like a lot of you however I post my favourites on instagram which is why apps like Pop Book are becoming so popular. It’s the new age of pictures, we take them on our phone and we print them from them too. The Pop Book app is super easy to use, you can choose pictures from instagram, facebook or even your photo stream and each book costs less than a fiver! I created two to test the process out which chronicle last years holidays to New York and Disneyland and I can confirm that not only was the whole thing really simple from start to finish but the quality is really nice too.
There are a few options to choose from, I have the larger of the two books (no difference in cost) and chose one in matte and one in a glossy finish.. I think I prefer the glossy, both feel thick and substantial but when you have sticky toddler hands to contend with the gloss makes it a little easier to wipe clean. In the app (which you can find here) you can choose, rearrange, crop and edit the photos as you want them in the book and preview the whole thing before ordering. I have ordered more for family, they make great memory books/gifts and mine arrived super fast (in just a couple of days) so I think you’d still be safe ordering now for Mothers Day.
BUT… I also have TEN to give away to you lucky lot. All you have to do is leave me a comment (through the Rafflecopter widget) telling me why you want to make a Pop Book.. is it for you? A gift? To remember a certain event? I think I will do one of these for each trip we go on, the perfect 21st century replacement for the photo albums that seem to have totally faded in to obscurity in the past 5 years.
Do you still print photos? I used to scrapbook but then blogging took over..
