Benefits of Printed Text Message Books for Gifts 

A Physical Reminder
If you are someone who likes the tangible aspect of holding on to keepsakes then having a printed version of your Keepster book is better suited for you.  

Gift Giving Impact 
It’s the ultimate experience to open up a book that has been printed just for you, it truly feels like a special memorialization of moments that matter in your life.  

Taking Digital Memories into the Analog World
Flipping through pages of your past digital memories from text messages gives you a way to experience your personal story in ways you couldn’t have otherwise. 

Printed books are also great gifts for the friends in your life who appreciate vintage experiences. 

Make it Real
Having a printed physical copy of your Keepster book makes your design more real.

Last Minute Gifting
The best thing about creating a Keepster book and saving it digitally is that you can create something that is a last-minute gift.  We know that many people find time slipped away and weren’t able to get ahead with their order in time to receive a printed photobook. 

An Addition to Your Printed Book
We recommend ordering your physical book to gift once it arrives but supplementing it with the additional digital ebook.  You’re able to get it immediately while you wait for your book to print and ship. 

On Deployment
If you have friends or family deployed overseas or in a remote place where receiving a physical package might be prohibitive, a digital book or ebook is a great alternative. 

Your Favorite Digital Nomad
If you have a friend that is living that van life or if they are traveling for work a good portion of the year, a digital book or ebook might be perfect for them.  Rather than trying to coordinate the time and place for them to receive their book, an ebook can find them anywhere in the world. 

On the Cloud for Minimalists
You will be able to save your book anytime and you can open it anywhere. It also helps protect you from the possibility of more clutter. We understand that physical books or anything tangible for that matter can become lost over time and/or be a hassle when you need more space or are in the process of moving. 



No matter what option you choose between printing a physical copy or keeping it digital, Keepster’s custom books will give you the best quality to keep your memories fresh.
