Our story

Grandpa's 94th birthday

Celebrating Grandpa's 94th Birthday

We're Alex and Andy Cook and we built NanaGram as a gift to our Grandpa for his 94th birthday. Our Grandma just turned 94, too, and together they've lived in their home for over 60 years.

Driving was part of Grandpa’s daily routine until he was 93. His mornings began with a paper and coffee while chatting up everyone he met at his favorite local establishments. When Grandpa stopped driving he stopped getting out as much. We started making more of an effort to visit and take him out for coffee, on errands – and if we're lucky – one of his family-famous historical driving tours. Outside visiting in person, communicating with Grandpa can be a real challenge since he wears hearing aids and can’t talk on the phone.

Grandpa's Dog Rusty

Photos are a powerful way to share family history and stay in touch. This past Christmas we uncovered old negatives of our Grandpa's beloved dog Rusty. These photos sparked many memories in Grandpa. We had them colorized and printed on canvases which he proudly displays in his kitchen. Often while we're visiting, he'll randomly interrupt everyone and announce his love for Rusty.

Grandma loves going through photos and videos on our phones, especially of her great-grandchildren. But even though we've tried many times to set them up with computers and smartphones, they're just not interested in learning new tech. We've tried digital photo frames but they're unplugged to preserve electricity. Grandma communicates with phone calls, voicemails, and by sending things in the mail. In-person visitors are compensated with chocolate bars.

Printed photos work the best. But wrangling photos from each family member, submitting the order, and picking it up at the local print shop makes it tough to be consistent. Texting photos is a super easy way for our entire family to regularly deliver fresh photos to our Grandparents and hopefully, yours too.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will my Nana get?
We ship classic printed photos on Kodak and Fuji paper, perfect for framing, albums, and the fridge. You can choose matte or glossy. The prints are 4"x6" and 4"x4" (for square images). Your loved one doesn't need any technology. They just receive a plain, white envelope each month with your photos inside. We include a free cover photo which lists out the names and, phone numbers, and mailing addresses of everyone on the account. (We hope to spark more letters and packages in the mail from your loved one.)

What if a family member sends in a photo I don't like?
You have total control over which photos go to print on our website. We send a text message reminder 3 days before print with a reminder to review.

What happens if I send more than 10 photos?
If and when you go over your account's limit, we still save every photo sent in. We ship the first 10 photos (or whatever your account limit) and the remaining photos roll over to next month. You can also get bonus photos in our referral program or upgrade your account in a jiffy.

Why not just use a digital photo frame or Facebook?
Over the years people have tried lots of different ways to share photos with their grandparents. While digital photo frames and Facebook require your loved one to have an Internet connection, NanaGram lets them continue living an offline lifestyle. Facebook is also a relatively public social network whereas on NanaGram you can treat your account as a private social network for your family (check out our privacy policy) and post photos you might not otherwise post to Facebook. Digital photo frames require setup need to always be plugged in. While a digital photo frame displays photos in one place, the sky is the limit with your NanaGram prints - They can go on the fridge, in albums, in frames, or even be taped on random walls :) Plus, there's something magical about printed photos which you just don't get from a glowing screen.

Do you ship internationally?
We are currently ship to the US and Canada. However, we're actively working to deliver to Nanas all over. If you want to see NanaGram in your country, please drop your email on our waitlist.
