Meet the Modern-Day Baby Journal: A Chat book Filled with The Texts That Tell Our Surrogacy Story

Two Dads, one little girl, and a whole lot of messages and memories to keep forever. The story of one father’s journey to digital baby booking, with Keepster.
You know the saying when the student is ready, the teacher appears? I’d say the same goes for Keepster - the service that allows you to turn favorite messages into printed books, whose Instagram ad interrupted my doom-scrolling late one night.  “Turn meaningful messages into professionally printed chat books!” the ad teased. Ready to welcome ...

Why a Keepster Book Makes for a Fun Bachelorette Party Gift, Even When COVID Crashes It

I decided to turn the texts, chats and photos that captured my best friend’s virtual bachelorette and bridal experience into a custom Keepster book: a professionally printed, friendship chat book filled with the messages and memories from a truly unforgettable time.
My best friend was planning to marry her high school sweetheart in front of 150 nearest and dearests, on a sunny Spring day. Her mom hoped to host a beautiful shower. I planned to throw one wild bachelorette party. We had months of celebrations to look forward to. COVID had other plans. Addy has Crohn’s disease - planting her firmly in the...

I Lost My iPhone and All My Messages: Now I Use Keepster

My wife told me to keep my messages safe, with Keepster. It took losing all my messages to remember, she’s always right.
I didn’t think I needed Keepster. I didn’t really care about my messages. I wouldn’t lose my phone. Anyway, I was sure I had a backup of something, somewhere. Turns out - I was wrong.  I regret not creating a Keepster back up. Here’s why. When my wife, Sarah,  first told me about Keepster, I told her that it sounded really cool and pretty ...

My Best Friend’s Texts Are Getting Me Through 2020, Even Halfway Across The World

My best friend is my unpaid therapist, and I couldn’t face a global pandemic without her texts.
7 months into the most tumultuous, tragic, up-ending year our generation may ever live through, I can confidently say this: my best friend (and her messages, even nearly 6,000 miles away) are what have kept me sane. I’ll admit, my best friend Sam deserves a Nobel Prize for her work as my unpaid therapist and... WhatsApp deserves an honorable ...

I Turned My College Freshman’s Texts into a Chat book

Turns out, It’s the Sweetest Gift I’ve Given Her
Thanks to a Keepster ad, I got to create what my daughter now swears is the “cutest present I’ve ever given her”: a chat book filled with our favorite freshman year moments, milestones, and messages. College came too fast, didn’t it? Maybe it’s because my daughter is an only, or maybe because we mercifully made it out of most of her teen year...

A life-long scrapbooker and writer realizes she is journaling, with Keepster

A much-appreciated customer generously shares what saving deeply personal messages means to her.
“Oh it is just lovely,” I exclaimed, as I admired the ornate vintage journal I held in my hand. It was beautifully bound with antique embossing. My heart sank at yet another reminder of my failure at journaling. Most of my circle of friends are diarists  But I’ve never been the one to stick with it. As a writer, I consider my writing to be my jo...

Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day & the Love Story I Had No Idea My Parents’ Texts Told

I was a self-admitted Valentine’s Day hater but one Keepster book, thousands of my parents’ texts & an afternoon spent helping my Dad bring their love story to life changed all that.
Helping my Dad make a Valentine’s Day Keepster book made me realize two things: I want the kind of love my parents share and I should still celebrate all the love I have in my life, even if I’m the most single I’ve ever been since the 6th grade.  I sat beside my Dad as he selected the messages, customized the dedication page, and dropped i...

Some of the Best Advice I've Ever Gotten Has Come Via Text

Thank you, iPhone (and Mom and Dad)
Picture this...  I’m having dinner with a group of friends. One of the guys gets a text from his Mom, and says “Hang on, I gotta tell her I figured it out, one second…” We all nod in understanding. When he’s done, he puts down his phone and his girlfriend laughs, patting his arm as she says “I swear, I used to pray my parents wouldn’t text me...

An iPhone romance that broke my heart … Sorta

I had an entire (three month) “relationship” via text message, and it mattered. Way more than I ever thought it could. Then, he ghosted me.
Yup. You read that right. I know, I know, I can hear it all: But you didn’t even really know him! Three months?! That’s nothing! How do you catch feelings for someone over an iPhone?!  I know what you’re thinking because I thought it, my friends thought it - some even had the guts to say it.  We’ve all heard those stories of people who mee...

I Turned my Favorite Group Chat into a Book

I have the world’s greatest best friends, and couldn’t imagine life without them...so I showed them what they meant to me, with a Keepster book.
I had always planned to move away from home. In fact, for a long time I didn’t consider Winnipeg my home - rather a place where I’d grow up but would move away from the moment I got the chance.  My attitude stayed the same until I had to start saying my goodbyes as I prepared to move to another country to pursue my lifelong dream. Goodbyes se...
