I have been on a printing roll. Yes, I am getting those photos off my iPhone and into my hands. If you’ve been following me on my “no more digital dust” journey, you know that my latest loves are Artifact Uprising and Booksto.me. And now I have another find to share with you, GrooveBook.
Some of you may be familiar with this company already as they were featured on Shark Tank earlier this year. I actually have not watched that show and stumbled up on them on my own while doing some late night photography web-surfing. In any case, GrooveBook is an free app available for mobile phones that prints up to 100 photos each month and creates a 4.5″ x 6.5″ book is mailed to you monthly. And get this, each book costs only $2.99 (however it is subscription based, so you will receive a new book each month..however you can cancel any time).
I received my first book this week and was impressed with the color quality and sharpness of the images. The paper however is very thin about the thickness of a regular sheet of paper and I’m not a big fan of glossy images, but for $2.99 it is an inexpensive way to get those photos off your phone and into your hands. For those of you who enjoy scrapbooking or journaling, this would be a great way to incorporate images without spending a lot of money.
What I like most about my GrooveBook is I now have a little keepsake of what I’ve been up to over the past month in a “brag book” type of format. I also appreciate that each image contains the date, time and place stamped on the perforated edge. And speaking of the perforated edge, sharing photos is easy, just gently tear them out of the book and pass them out to friends and family.
Here is a little look at my GrooveBook and a few photos from my trip to New Zealand. You can try Groovebook for free using the code RUST79. Yep try it out and let me know what you think. You can cancel your subscription after the first month so don’t worry you are not locked in…. 😉
