Love photo? Love little books? Do you have some amazing snaps on your Facebook page or Instagram feed? We’ll if you’re wagging your tail with a yes, let me introduce you to a global company that combines all the things you love.
We were lucky enough to try out one of their photo books and thought a Printrbook Review and discount code for my readers was in order!
Printrbook is an online company that transforms your best photos from Facebook and Instagram and turns them into hand pocket memories, perfect for sharing. It’s an adorable way to capture your special moments and then ship them anywhere in the world. I think they would make a perfect little gift, or make a few and display them on your coffee table for sharing with family and friends.
They print your Instagram or Facebook photos on 150 gsm matte paper and the cover is a thicker Truecard of 300 gsm. Which basically means that the cover is thicker than your average birthday card and the interior pages are a decent thickness.
What we loved about these little books, was their size. All the photo books are 10 X 11 cm, which means you can easily slip them in your pocket or handbag when you’re visiting friends and want to show off your favorite snaps.

My Printrbook Review & Thoughs
Ordering was pretty simple, and it’s nice that the layouts are clean and simple and you don’t have to worry about complicated designs. However, I did have trouble finding the button to print on both sides of the page, so I decided to use the captions on the other side of the page. I also would have loved an option to centered my paragraph that I used for the intro, and I would have liked the captions centered on the page, instead of the top. But besides that I was pretty pleased with the whole outcome.
I think the books are really cute and I already have a few ideas on how I would use them. You see my grand-peep does not use a computer and lives in Canada so she doesn’t get to see all the photos that I model in or all the beautiful places I have been.
Yup, you guessed it, she’s always asking for photos of me and my peep, so making these little books is a perfect little gift that she can tote around and see me being the cute beagle that I am. The best part is that Printrbook will ship it right to her door for free!

As you can see, there are lots of ways to make your photo books special. I know when I took my 2014-2015 book to meet friends for lunch the other day, they really enjoyed flipping through it and even remembered a few of the photos. They are sweet, fun and make you smile, what can be better than that?
