Turning my instamemories into real life paper memories

You know how I have just been in New York? Of course you do, what am I saying, I banged on about it for weeks. Anyway, while we were there I took pictures. And some of those pictures I posted on Instagram (StuffThatIBought – look me up). And since they look so lovely, I decided I would have them printed into supercute teeny tiny little memory books.

I read about Printstagram on Fatmumslim (Chantelle is the Instagram QUEEN) and it’s such a neat idea. For $10 I got three tinybooks and you can either pick 24 photos so that all three books are the same, or 72 photos for three different books. I had about 30 NYC pics, so I picked 24 and now have three matching books – one for me, one for hubby, and one for…me. You just log in with your Instagram username and password, tick the photos you want, paypal express, and you’re done! Printstagram also have memory boxes, tees, mini prints, a slightly-bigger-but-still-mini mini book, stickers and posters, so you can turn your arty photos into all manner of cool things. It took about 2 weeks to get to me, so order with room to spare if you’re getting a gift for someone.

Fun fact: The tinybooks are magnetic, so you can put them on the fridge.

Also fun fact: Your cat isn’t magnetic, so if you put a tinybook on your cat, it will probably just fall off.

Details: Tinybooks – 3 for $10 from Printstagram + $12 postage from Printstagram

    I’m wondering if there is a way you can use the pictures from someone else’s account Corinne – would make a nice surprise for that person.

    🙁 The website isn’t working for me sadly. I would have loved to get this for my boyfriend for his birthday. It’s a very cool idea though!

    I love this idea! I’m going to try to do a photo type display similar to your Polaroid thingo!

    Yay Sher! If you do, post pics please.

    Sussan – I just checked and the site isn’t working for me either; 404 error messages. BUT according to their twitter account they are upgrading their system and the site has been down today.
