Each family gets a unique NanaGram number, like a cell phone number.
There's no app to download. Families just text message their photos to NanaGram.
Once a month, we develop and ship 4x6 prints to your activities team.
She loved them.

My 88-yr-old, 4'10" Nonnie just called me over-the-moon excited. So I am now officially obsessed with this tool (Text photos w/ captions; they print/mail photos to your grandparents) https://t.co/RVw1ewU2Aa— Jay Acunzo (@jayacunzo) December 8, 2017

Celebrating Grandpa Cook's 94th birthday
I’m Alex Cook and together with my brother Andy, we built NanaGram as a gift to our late grandfather Tirrell Cook (Grandpa to us) for his 94th birthday.
When Grandpa stopped driving at 93, I started making more of an effort to visit. It started with errands to the grocery store and bank and quickly morphed into adventures with Grandpa. After breakfast or errands, Grandpa would detour me all around Boston’s South Shore to talk history, geneology and marvel at everything, big and small. Later in life, I became “his barber.”
Grandpa loved lobster rolls.
Grandpa and Grandma Cook lived in their home together for over 60 years. Over the years, my siblings and I would visit our grandparents as often as possible. Grandma and Grandpa loved going through videos and photos on our phones. We tried countless times to set them up with computers, iPads, and other screens but nothing stuck. If we had the time, sometimes we’d send a batch of photos to print a local 1-hour photo but it was challenging to be consistent. So often when we’d go home, our photos and videos went with us.
At Grandpa Cook’s 94th birthday, I bought a couple twin live lobsters (Grandpa loved his lobster rolls) thinking there’s no way any of my siblings could top my gift. Sure enough, my brother Andy unveiled a prototype for a text-to-print service he called “InstaGrandpa” and asked me to help him finish building it. We decided to name the product NanaGram, after our Mom, and launched on Reddit. Now thousands of NanaGrammers are delivering photos to hundreds of grandparents across the US and Canada every month. Our regular photo deliveries spark an increase in phone calls and visits, bringing families closer together. In the words of Grandpa Cook, “Isn’t that wonderful!”
