Ever since Instagram came out there have been apps popping up that allow you to print out your photos, but I have just found my new favorite! FavePix from Shutterfly! First of all… why would you print out your pictures if they’re already saved on Instagram and/or Facebook or whatever social media sharing site you prefer… What if that social sharing site gets hacked? What if your account gets deleted? What if like MySpace it simply becomes unpopular and sort of fades away into early 2000s history. It can happen… I don’t even remember what my log in info was for MySpace back then.
FavePix is an iPhone app by Shutterfly that enables you to create photo books from your Instagram photos. For just $19.99, you get a 6×6 hardcover photo book and a bamboo stand. Shipping is free.
Creating your book is SO easy and really takes only about 5 minutes. You have three options for choosing the photos you want printed in your book. Just download the FavePix app from the iPhone app store, connect your Instagram account and then either;
1. Select your favorites from all of your Instagram photos, you can choose up to 50
2. Gather by hashtags
3. Let FavePix choose your best photos for you
I chose to gather by hashtag using #KlaraBeth. From there FavePix chose my top 50 photos of my sweet girl and put them into the book in chronological order. You also have the option to print the dates and captions with the photos. I LOVED that because most apps available don’t allow you to print the caption that you shared with the photo, but I love to be able to look back and read what I wrote when I shared that photo on that specific date.
You can choose a black or white background, I chose white. And it allows you a couple of options for the cover. Either one large photo or a few smaller ones.
The back cover includes your Instagram profile photo and name. So fun, right?!
I already want to make another with my #KlaraBethMonthly photos that I took during Klara’s first year. And then one with Quade’s photos when he gets a little older and has a few more… ;)
