Chatbooks Review & Thoughts
Family picture albums have always been important to me. I love flipping through the pages and remembering when with my children. In this digital age there’s a big part of me that still loves paper. After I shared my video on Organizing the Picture Book Shelf in Our Non-Pinterest Homeschool Room I had a viewing friend suggest that I look into a program called Chatbooks.
Staying caught up on family pictures
I’m always up for ways to attempt to stay caught up on important family pictures. I quickly found Chatbooks is a way to do just that! I downloaded the free Chatbooks app for my iPhone and linked my Instagram account. I had several years worth of special Instagram photos that Chatbooks pulled into 16 volumes. Each 6×6 book is 60-pages each. I had a photo budget set aside and decided getting 16 photo books from Chatbooks was a worthy investment.
Free Chatbooks App
Using the free Chatbooks app I was able to pick the cover for each chronological album. I could also edit each album and unselect any pictures that I did not want included. For $6 each with free shipping (that first order was a biggie – $96! – you can choose to just get one photo book at a time or customize your order more specifically) I was very pleased when I received my large chatbooks order. Since my first “catch up” order I’ve received one additional volume.
When it’s time for a new Chatbooks order
I’ve customized my Chatbooks account to receive one new volume every time I’ve shared 60 new pictures on Instagram. This should take me about 6 to 8-weeks. Chatbooks sends me an email with a notification that I have 3-days to edit my newest family photo book. I click through the email and make any necessary edits and click accept. Then my next Chatbooks volume is shipped to me for $6 and free shipping.
