What Is VideoBook?

From the outside, VideoBook has the appearance of a high-end, luxury wedding album with its tan brown vegan leather finish and felt interior. It is hand-bound and personalised in our traditional bindery in Galway, Ireland. Each book is embossed on the front cover and can also include a message on the inside cover page. What makes VideoBook truly unique is that you can include both photos and videos, with each video printed with its own QR code so that you bring your personalised photo book to life and play videos right off the page.

Simply go to https://videobook.shop and upload your photos and videos.

VideoBook assigns QR codes to all video files in your storyboard. We also creates a full length video up to 10 mins long incorporating all video and photo files from that storyboard and using your selected style and soundtrack. All of your files are printed in the order that you have uploaded them, allowing you to assign photos where a video file is uploaded. Once printed you can enjoy both photos and videos in the same photo book!

Simply point the camera on your smartphone wherever you see a QR code to bring that photo to life!

VideoBook is a premium product with a unique, personalised flair that provides an immersive experience, ideal for gifts for any occasion. It combines all of the craftsmanship of the traditional bindery with technological innovation that is incredibly easy to use (Even for your grandparents!).

Capturing That One Perfect Moment…

Togetherness is precious, especially during these times of social distancing. When friends and families can’t be together in person, small gestures and going the extra mile to say ‘I love you’ become that much more meaningful.

Imagine a cocooning grandmother, who hasn’t been able to see her family in six months. Then one day, she receives a luxury VideoBook from her daughter in the post. Sitting at her kitchen table, she carefully opens the box. She notices the embossed cover and smiles at the personalised message. Curious, she turns the page and is prompted to use her phone camera on the unique code above each photo. Emotion envelopes her as she sees and hears the smiling faces of her daughter and two grandchildren, waving and singing ‘Happy Birthday’. She laughs out loud with surprise and delight. For those few minutes, it seemed like they were in the room with her… and she will be able to relive this magic moment again and again. 

A VideoBook is a true keepsake, and you can continue adding to it over a lifetime. Do this by adding extra project pages utilising it’s unique screw post design and using credits which can be purchased through your account. With unlimited storage, the possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to creating a personalised video collection, whether for yourself or to give as gifts to friends and family. Your VideoBook is a premium photo book for the 21st century. With its stream of blank pages, you can let your imagination run wild. And instead of a static arrangement of photographs, your device lets you truly bring your most treasured moments to life, in a collection that’s as dynamic and individual as you are.

How Do You Get Started Using VideoBook?

Once you purchase one of our premium, hand-bound VideoBook, you’ll be directed to our VideoBook Builder. Upload your videos and photos and then drag and drop them to arrange their sequence and even add captions. Once you’re happy with the way you’ve laid out your moments, add captions underneath to give a running commentary.

Give your videos some pizzazz with our variety of different filters, themes and soundtracks. Experiment with different combinations and soundtrack samples to make sure you have the perfect flare to offset your video’s mood. Preview your creation before finalising. 

The finished project is then printed, added to your VideoBook and delivered directly to your door. You can also fully integrate your VideoBook account with your social media channels, allowing you to take videos and photos from Facebook, Instagram, etc. and upload them onto your device for safe-keeping. In this, curating your own bespoke VideoBook is a lifelong experience, where you can add new memories as you create them.
