Tell a story with photo captions

Send text along with your photo and it'll be added as a caption to the print. (For email, use the subject line.) It’s a great way to add context to your moments or even share an entire story.

Captions on top and bottom of two photos reading "We're so glad you could make it to our wedding" (a photo of a wedding scene under a big tree) and "Pretty signs Katie made. MMM burritos." (a photo of a chalkboard menu at a wedding with various burrito fillings.)

What will my loved one get?
We ship classic printed 4"x6" photos, perfect for framing, albums, and the fridge. Your loved one doesn't need any tech. They get hard-copy prints in the mail, like magic. We include a free cover photo which lists out the names and, phone numbers, and mailing addresses of everyone on the account. You can also take it to the next level with a cloth-covered photo album, wrapped beautifully and delivered in the same box as your photos.
If I'm based in the US or Canada, do I have to text my photos?
You're not required to subscribe to a text-enabled plan. You can subscribe to our email-only plan. We'll give you a unique email instead of a phone number. If you sign up for a text-enabled account, we also provide you with a unique email.
How do captions work?
When you send text along with your photo, we'll layer it on top of the photo as a caption. See an example. On our website, you'll have the option to move caption to the top or bottom of your photos. You can also add "-b or -bottom" at the end of your message to position the caption to the bottom over text. When emailing photos, use the subject line for captions.
What if someone on my account (sibling, cousin, etc) sends a bad photo?
You have total control over which photos go to print on our website. You can skip photos you don't love.
Can I send slightly different photos to my inlaws?
Yes! If you want to send slightly different photos to your inlaws , you can create a separate subscription using the same password. If you're just getting started, finish setting up your primary account first. Once you're done, you'll find the option to set up another subscription under the same login. To send the same set of photos to multiple people, you can choose multiple loved ones under the option "I'd like to send my photos to."
Can I split the photos in my plan and send them to multiple people?
All of the photos in a plan go to the same recipient, due to the cost of shipping and handling. However, we do offer multiple-recipient plans, allowing you to send the same set of photos to multiple people . If you're using a phone-number-powered account (US and Canada only) you can get $1 off each additional recipient. For example, the Starter Plan (5 photos) is $7.99. Each additional recipient is $6.99.
What happens if I send more than my monthly limit?
If you go over your account's limit, we still save every photo uploaded. 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.
Do you roll over unused photos?
We rollover unused photos if you send in zero photos in your scheduled shipment. For example, if you're on the monthly 5-photo plan and don't send any photos this month, you'll be credited 5 photos and you'll be able to send up to 10 in the next shipment. Given the cost of shipping and handling, at this time we don't roll over partially unused photos.
What if only part of my family is located in the US or Canada?
Your family located internationally can send photos to print to the unique email we assign to every account. Your family located in the US or Canada can text photos to your unique number.
I'm a grandparent. Can I buy an account to give to my grandkids?
Totally. We offer gift cards, which you can pass on to your grandkids. They'll handle setting up the account.
Is your service like a photo book for grandparents?
Right now we offer classic, 4x6 printed photos only. While we don't offer a binded photo book, our photos can be inserted into a photo album to make for an awesome photo book for grandparents. Check out our guide on photo gifts for grandparents which includes of favorite photo album from Amazon which pairs well with NanaGram. You can also buy an album on our website. — if you're just getting started, we'll prompt you as you create your account.

Our Story

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.

Celebrating Grandpa Cook's 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. As he grew older, the blood thinning medicine made it too dangerous to shave and the arthritis in his hands made it too hard to hold a beard trimmer. I became his "barber" — hands-down the most rewarding title of my lifetime.

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.

Grandpa loved lobster rolls.

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 started building the night before. When Andy asked me to help him finish building it, I instantly said "Hell yes!" We decided to name the product NanaGram, after our our mom (Nana) and our grandmother: An ode to the telegram and her career in the communication industry as a life telephone operator. A few weeks later we blew up on Reddit. Now thousands of NanaGrammers are delivering photos to hundreds of grandparents across the the world 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!”
