Photo-takers: You’re gonna love this!

Did you know that 78.3% of all Instagram users haven’t printed a single photo that they’ve taken? Did you also know that I just made that statistic up? But I think I’d be about right.

Have you printed a photo recently?

Last year Blurb {creators of photos books and such things} came to me and asked if I’d like to give my lovely readers a free book filled with their Instagram/Facebook photos. I said yes. Free stuff for everyone. Everyone seemed pretty happy with it all, and it was an exciting time. We did have to cover postage ourselves which averaged at about $12 {if I remember correctly} depending on where you lived.

So, the offer is back. If you want a free book, printed with 60 of your own photos – all you have to do is create it and pay for postage. Everyone is welcome to take advantage of the offer {it’s open worldwide}. It will go live on Saturday morning {my time} – I’ll post all the details here. Unlike last time the offer is only open for 24 hours – so I wanted to give you time to start thinking about what photos you want. I’m thinking of making a little book of our trip to Singapore for Lacey.

You can download your photos straight from Instagram or Facebook, or upload from your desktop {whatever works for you}.

So stay tuned. More details to come. x

  • Yay!! I must’ve done something wrong last time as my postage came up as $30 and I ended up deciding against it, but a friend down the road got one and only payed about $12 and hers was amazing so I’m definitely going to make sure I do it right this time!! Thanks Chantelle πŸ™‚

    • Hmm… that doesn’t seem right. Email me if that happens again – cos it shouldn’t be that much. x

    • Garry

      There is express shipping and standard shipping options. I suspect you might of accidentally selected the express shipping, hence the price difference πŸ™‚

  • Cool beans! Is this valid outside Australia, too?

    • Yep. It says above – worldwide. You just have to cover your postage. πŸ™‚

      • Oh, duh! I got so excited I read the last half too fast. Yea!

    • Nicole

      “Everyone is welcome to take advantage of the offer {it’s open worldwide}” πŸ™‚ xx

  • I went to blurb and it doesn’t say anything about this offer πŸ™

    • It’s not launched yet. It launches on Saturday. More details to come.

    • Nicole

  • Wow what a great offer! Thank you πŸ™‚ Now to pick just 60 photos πŸ˜‰

  • Janine

    So excited and grateful for this offer!!!

  • @bonegus

    FYI – the pictures will be higher resolution if you upload the originals from your photo library instead of pulling from Facebook or Instagram. I have a Blurb book that I pulled straight from IG and not all the images are the quality I was hoping for! Thanks Chantelle and Blurb for the offer!

  • Roxy

    Does it have to be an instagram book? I have a 2012 photo book ready to print that I want to do……

  • This is such a great opportunity! Thank so much for it… πŸ™‚

  • The only thing I’m worried about is missing it because of time zones. When Saturday begins (ie, 12:01 AM) there, what time is it GMT? I can work out the EST time from there.

    • Kimba

      I think it will be 1PM on saturday

      • Jen

        I’m just a tad confused. I’m in Eastern Australia (south coast…daylight savings time)…..so we’re GMT +11…does that mean it starts at 12.01 OUR time? Sorry to be a pain! Jen

    • I’ll be starting it at 6am EST – so I think that’s about 4pm on Friday for the US.

  • Kimba

    Having just finished a 3 day trek along the Great Ocean Walk I have photos ready to go!!!! Yay oh Yay!

  • Ann Harvey

    wow that is such a great offer thank you so much will have to get to thinking of what photos ….so many to choose from going to have to put the thinking cap on:)

  • Kimba

    Do you know what format the book will be so I can start creating it in Blurb?????

    • Garry

      It will be Blurb’s small square format Instagram book. But you will have to create the book via the FMS/Blurb landing page. Link to this page will be announce Saturday, Sydney local time.

  • Awesome, loved my last little book!! Can’t wait, will have to start thinking about what photos to include! Cheers Chantelle x

    Yippee! Can’t wait for Saturday.

    Now to get prepared!

  • This is perfect! My house got broken into last week and all of my electronics stolen πŸ™ The only pictures I have of my three month old daughter are the ones on Facebook/Instagram and my blog. Now I can get some of them in a book and at least have them that way!

  • Cat

    Do we have more information on how to obtain the discount? My book is all ready to go, just waiting to get the discount code for check-out.

  • I’ve gone through and done my book but there’s no price reduction at all :/ Is there a code or something I have missed?

  • I just printed a heap of mini prints via printstagram I was very impressed with the quality, price and service.
