My 2013 Instagram book by Artifact Uprising

I posted about this company last year, and I'm back to do it again because I just love them. This isn't a sponsored post, or anything official like that. I genuinely love my Instagram books, and because I know so many people out there use their phones to take pictures, and use IG, I'm more than willing to spread the word!!

Even though I upload all the photos from my phone, onto my computer, I hardly ever look at them once they get into iPhoto. So last year, I decided to make a book to represent my very favorite Instagram photos. I searched around for weeks, trying to find a company and platform that was easy to use. Because lets face it, I have a ton of IG photos, so I need something seamless.

With the Artifact Uprising website, you can import your photos straight from Instagram if you want. Or, you can just upload them from your computer. From there, you can use the Autofill function to place your photos in the book. Or if you're anything like me (a type-a control freak), you will choose the layout for all 40 pages, and place the images in one by one.... in chronological order. lol. But whichever way you choose to do it, it's easy peasy.

They carry a variety of products, such as prints, calendars, wooden boxes, hard cover books, post cards... etc. But I have just stuck with the Instaram books so far, but I've been eying the hard cover books lately. Might have to get one of them for some of the better quality images from my DSLR.

But for the 'Instagram Friendly' books you have 2 options:
  • 5x5" Soft Cover Book is $17.99 (40 pages)
  • 8.5"x8.5" Soft Cover Book is $36.99 (40 pages)
I ordered the larger size, because I just wanna be able to see the expressions on the kids faces a little better, but the 5x5" book would be fun, too!

If you've been wanting to make something of all thsoe photos on your phone/IG feed... I highly recommend doing this. It doesn't take long and it's such a great way to capture each year, and have something tangible to look at!! I will most definitely be making one of these every single year!

That looks awesome!! I totally need to do that because... well, let's face it.... I suck at scrapbooking and I didn't even finish Kennedy's baby book.

I've been wanting to make one of these. The quality looks amazing! I have been using Groove Book for now just because it is inexpensive but I would love to have a high quality book like this for sure.

YES! I made an artifact uprising book for Abigail's birthday this year(it got me caught up from the start of my instagram to November) and I'm so in love with it.

I can't wait to make another one for this year around birthday time!
