Printrbook review and giveaway

Recently I was given the opportunity to review a book of Instagram print pictures from Printrbook. Anyone who knows me knows just how much I love Instagram and how ever so slightly addicted to it I am. Indeed, just the other day I grabbed my phone to take a picture and Instagram a scene in front of me as fast as I could before it disappeared! So I was very excited at the prospect of a book of my pictures. I decided that I would treat the childminder to the book, because the majority of pictures are of the view from her house, which I am utterly envious of.

It was ridiculously simple to create the book, you log in with your Instagram account, browse through your pictures and choose the ones you want to add to your book (either 25 or 50). The photos are printed in chronological order and are one photo to a page. It makes it very simple to complete. You can then choose one or more photo for your front cover. I opted for four, one from each season. It is up to you whether or not you want your captions printed on the photo, I opted just to put the date on. Then that's it, you're done. You preview the book and buy, using either a payment card or a PayPal account. Printrbook ship worldwide, so it doesn't matter where in the world you are. I found the whole process to be incredibly simple and barely took any time at all. It was easy to choose the pictures and there were plenty of options available to me during the process.

What they say
Printrbook is the simplest way to print beautiful photobooks of your Instagram photos.

Although we completely love Instagram to bits, we believe locking up your photos in the cloud isn't ideal - how do you pass them from generation to generation? Remember how great it was to leaf through shoeboxes full of old printed family photos? Well - we want to make that possible with your Instagram photos by turning them into books that you can keep forever and easily pass down through the generations.

And we make it really really easy to do. Just login to with your Instagram account and select the photos you want to add to your book. We'll automatically put your photos in chronological order and, if you like, automatically add captions using the text you wrote when you uploaded your photos to Instagram.

Once you've previewed your book (we'll make you a PDF so you can see what it'll look like), just check out with a payment card or your PayPal account. Simple.

We ship worldwide too. So wherever you are on the globe, rest assured we'll get your book to you as fast as we can.

We print your photos on 150gsm Inaset paper and surround them with a 300gsm Trucard cover. Our paper is FSC certified and produced using power from 100% renewable resources. Print production systems registered are to ISO14001 : 2004, ISO 9001 : 2008 and EMAS standards, with a carbon free status by offsetting all site emissions through the charity Rainforest Concern.

Good points
Amazingly simple to create your book.
Easy to personalise and change options.
Excellent quality and the images are crisp and clear.
Great size for carrying around in a handbag to show people.
Would make a fabulous present for Christmas, or just a printed book to hold memories of the past year.

Bad points
It is quite a small book, if you want something larger then you will have to use a different company and pay more.

Would I buy it?
Absolutely. The process was ridiculously simple and it was so nice to create a book from my Instagram pictures. It costs £10.00 per book and £2.00 for delivery to the UK. If you order multiple books then it costs less. For further information, check out Printrbook's website.
