Instagram books from Blurb

March 4, 2014

I ordered a couple Instagram books from Blurb last year, and they’re so fun to have! The kids love looking through them, and it’s such a nice way to turn my Instagram photos into something ‘real’.

I recently ordered a book of Marlow’s first year – an entire book of her photos from the day she was born until the day she turned one — and it just arrived! Oh my gosh, you should see the way Marlow carries around this book!! She loves it! She keeps pointing to all her baby photos and saying ‘baby’ and kissing every page.

Making the books is super easy. You just have to sync your Instagram account to your account on Blurb and it automatically fills in the pages with photos. If you don’t want to use the autofill feature, you can select your own photos from Instagram and then place them onto each page. So easy! I’m definitely going to order more!

What a great idea.
Question for you – did you find any of the photos that have a filter on them to come out a little fuzzy? That is normally a concern with companies that print out Instagram pictures.

Hi Sara,
I rarely use the filters on Instagram, so only a few of the photos in the book had filters. But yes, I think the ones with filters are slightly fuzzier than the others. But not so bad that it takes away from the photos. x

Wonderful. And Marlow’s little hands kill me, so sweet.
Question for you, too – what app do you use to edit your Instagram photos?

Hi Maria,
I use VSCO to edit photos. I don’t do too much to them, but sometimes I lighten up photos or add a bit of contrast or make small tweaks like that. x

This is such a great idea! I keep meaning to print photos and put them in albums, but this is better. Also can’t believe Marlowe is a year! I remember her new baby photos on Instagram. 🙂

I’m loving this! There is nothing more interesting than watching a child discover him-/herself and slowly realizing the baby in the pictures is actually her/him. The printing quality of this photobook seems to be really high. Do you (or anybody who reads this) know an online printing service for small-batch photo postcards in Europe? I’ve been in love with Artifact Uprising for a while now but just cannot get myself to accept the high shipping costs that come with ordering from the US and Blurb – unfortunately – doesn’t offer that service. Thanks for any advice!
