      Hi Amy,

      Sorry to hear about the issues you had. 🙁 Be sure to email their customer service about this.

    I really dislike companies that require you to sign up for a subscription. I am always very uneasy about that.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I totally understand and normally don’t promote many subscription companies. However, what I like about Groovebook is that it’s even a good deal after you get your free photo book, as you are only paying $0.03 per print shipped to your door. You can also easily cancel by emailing them.

    i’m sad that i just uploaded all my pics to my computer! i’ll have to do this later in the month when i have more christmasy photos!

    I thought the photo quality was awful! I was glad I got it completely free. I don’t usually complain about these things, but wanted to warn others. If you want it for simple memories in a book, sure, but quality is poor.

    • Melissa

      I was wondering about photo quality. I have an ipad, but the photos tend to be very inferior to ones taken with my camera so I am not so sure I would want a whole album with inferior quality photos.

      • shannon b.

        Once a photo is in my phone it usually stays there forever….not anymore:) I think the quality is great especially for the price!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I honestly loved all of the photos I received in my Groovebook. The quality was great in my opinion. I think it’s going to vary from person to person based on the quality of the mobile phone camera being used. I am always impressed with the quality of my iPhone camera.

    • Angie (Groovebook Rep)

      Make sure you upload your best photos. Photos are printed just as they are uploaded without any editing by GrooveBook.

    • Lauri

      Yes I agree the quality is horrible!

  5. Amanda

    Will I be charged 2.99 each month even if I don’t order a book each month?

    • Becky


    • dvbo79

      You will BUT it’s very hard to forget to upload pictures. As long as you upload at least 40 they will just duplicate those 40 until 1000 is reached. They also send a reminder to you when your finish date is getting close. I just upload after a take a couple pics then I add more later as I go.

      • dvbo79

        I meant *100 not 1000 lol

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yes, as stated above, you will be charged $2.99 every month after the 1st month, but will be sent reminders regarding this. You can also opt to cancel whenever you please, as there is never a commitment. Simply cancel your account by emailing

  6. Daniell

    Is it only pics from ur phone or can u take them off Facebook too?

    • Kristie

      Save them to your phone then yes!

      • Mijona

        Read your comment. Every time I try to upload pictures we transfered from our computer to phone, groove book app doesn’t upload them. We made sure is on phone device memory. Any suggestions? Thanks

  7. Ash

    I ordered my free book a month ago and have not received yet.

    • Angie (Groovebook Rep)

      It takes about 14 days to receive your book once it’s processed. Email to check the status.

  8. dvbo79

    I love my groovebooks! I have received 2 since I started and i really like how easy it is. I am a person who never prints pictures, so for me it is awesome to be able to have printed pics in a little book. The pages are perforated so you can remove pics to give to grandmas, friends, etc. You can also pick to print multiples. You can refer friends and family and receive rewards too. I’d appreciate anyone using my referral code for a free groovebook: oswald5 Try it, it’s free!

    I cant seem to find an app for android for the H2S.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      It’s in the works, stay tuned! 🙂

  10. Saree

    This is a great idea, but the quality was horrible! I would love to pay a little more and get quality prints! Love the time stamp and quick way to get prints off my phone, but the photo prints need improvement!

    • Angie (Groovebook Rep)

      Make sure you are choosing the best quality prints on your phone. Photos are printed they way they are uploaded without editing by GrooveBook.

  11. Colleen

    I did this the last time Collin posted and it was super easy – I uploaded 100, waited about 10 days, then canceled with no issues. Received my first book about a week after that and haven’t been charged since. The pictures I got were great quality, too!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Glad to hear it! 🙂

  12. Jennifer

    I’ve gotten two books so far (one free one and one that I paid the $2.99 for) and I would say it is WELL worth it. As for the quality of the prints, I see no difference between these and prints I get from Walgreens or Walmart photo… If they are a little sub par, I know it’s because of my phone, not because of Groove Book. Oh, and I did contact them last week because I hadn’t received my second book yet… they got back to me promptly and said that it had shipped, and indeed I just got it yesterday.
    I think it just took longer with the Thanksgiving holiday in there.

  13. sne3103

    I know its a long shot, but does anyone know if they have an option to do matte prints instead of glossy? Thank you!

    • Angie (Groovebook Rep)

      Glossy is currently the only option.

  14. Angie

    I wonder if you can sign up, get 100 photos, cancel and then re-sign up when you have 100 more to print. I don’t think I’d have 100 new pictures to print every month and I don’t want tons of duplicates.

    • Angie (Groovebook Rep)

      You can sign up then cancel. You would then need to email to reactivate your account. Duplicates are great to have on hand for projects and then you still have one in your GrooveBook too.

  15. Rebecca

    The app never worked for me. Kept crashing.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sorry to hear that. 🙁 If you have time, I would recommend emailing customer service about the issues.

  16. Paige H

    Keep in mind everyone that you are printing photos from your phone. So the quality is based on your phone. All images will look much better on a cellphone because its smaller when you order a 4by6 of it stretches I’m sure. I think this is a wonderful deal! Its better than nothing! 🙂 great for scrapbooking! I also wonder if I can download all my fave pictures off a facebook to my phone that are taken with my high quality camera and order those from my download tab on my phone 🙂
    Thanks Collin!!

    • jenn

      I was going to do the download from my computer to my smart phone. I am a bit of a camera snob and love my dslr, so just working on transferring my photos from my computer to my phone for printing.

      • Angie

        Great idea!

    • Angie (Groovebook Rep)

      You would need to transfer the photos from your computer to your smartphone. Facebook photos are not an option yet.

      • Mijona

        How do you transfer from computer to phone? Tried many times but groove book app then rejected to upload. Made sure was on device memory. But no success.

  17. Cait

    Kind of off topic but, Collin, Is your phone case “the giving tree”??? I absolutely love it!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      It sure is! One of my favorite books ever! 😀

  18. Aimie

    I have been using Grooebook for almost a full year now & I have always been more than pleased with my groovebooks! The paper quality is not heavy and maybe not ideal for framing but as far as being able to get all of my photos off of my iPhone and into my hands in a cute little book, I am thrilled with them! I have also put them in photo albums and they are great for that. Just FYI!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      I completely agree with you! Thanks for sharing your feedback.

  19. Kristie

    Loved my first book.

  20. Lucy

    I agree with ” the quality of your pictures depends on the quality of your camera”! I think this is an awesome deal!! I just choose my best pictures and uploaded, I can’t wait! Thanks Collin!!

  21. gominam

    The groovebook app is very helpful if you want to print your pics in your cellphone without caring about very good quality. I did the free trail and i have to say that i personally didn’t like the quality at all. I think its even worse than walgreens quality. And its not that i took those pictures with my phone but with my 14mp camera. i transfer them into my phone to print them out and i didn’t like them. I always wait for free prints at target and do them there because thats the only store i like the quality the best! About 1-2 months target had them for free again and i printed those same exact pics and they were waaaay better! So , for $3 its not bad at all its just i would rather wait untill target has them for free! ^^V

  22. Ciera

    I signed up last time Colin posted this and I’ve gotten 2 books so far and the quality is very good. I only need 1 more person to get a free book so please use my code: DAWSON51 to get your first book for free. Thanks!

  23. whitt888

    I’ve been using Groovebook since Collin posted it about 3 months ago. I’m actually about to do my 3rd one! I was lucky enough that the 2 Ive already received were both FREE! The first one being that I used Collins code and the 2nd one i got for free because when i got my first groovebook I went on their facebook and told them how happy i was with it and they offered me a free book! (not sure if it will happen with everyone but it was very appreciated). The quality of the pictures are in my opinion great! I have a Galaxy S3 so i guess my camera is pretty good.I also transfer some of my other pictures that I’ve taken with my digital camera and those have turned out great as well! I really love the app personally! Thanks Collin 🙂

  24. Vivian

    My first subscription never came… so I just deleted the app 🙁

    • Angie

      Please email to check on your first subscription. It may have been lost in the mail or not uploaded correctly.

  25. Augusta

    I love my photo books from groove book! I love that they are perforated and I can tear them out easily and put them right in my scrapbook! Use code: niese7 to try it for free including free shipping and handling! If you don’t like it after that just cancel!

  26. Luv

    I have two coupon codes for $10 off $50 with free shipping for shutterfly. They expire Dec 14, I won’t be able to use them. If interested send me an email In spirit of Christmas.

  27. Michelle

    I uploaded my first groove book on dec 2nd and I was curious as to how long it takes to receive the book.

    • Angie

      It takes about 14 days with USPS. You can always email if have any questions.

  28. Michelle

    Thanks Angie! =)

  29. Dawn

    I love my book!

  30. Carol

    Do you have a web address directly to this video or a link to put in an email? I want to send it to someone.

  31. Lily

    Hi Mrs. Hip, kind of yoff topic but I love your coffee mug and scarf in this video. Do you know where I can find them?

  32. nancy

    if I have Dropbox on my iPhone can I upload Dropbox photos?

  33. DB

    are there any limitations to content of the pictures and what privacy do I get with the uploaded

    • Angie

      We will never use your photos for any reason unauthorized by you and we have no reason to use your photos for anything other than sending you your GrooveBook. We do save your photos securely, so if something were to happen to your phone/computer you do not lose those photos. But don’t worry, as we will never sell or share photos that you upload onto our app.

  34. Melanie

    I’m a little disappointed, I ordered my groove book and never received it. Can’t speak to anyone at customer service bc it’s just a pre typed generic email response apologizing for the inconvenience. I have no idea how to contact a live person.. ? what should I do continue to choose photos to print when I have no idea how the first booklet looks? Frustrating really.

    I’ve told over twenty people about joining is there anything you give free for referrals?

  38. Amber Thompson

    Can more than one book be purchased per month if I were to pay the fee for each book or can I only receive one book per month?

  39. Elizabeth Alvarez

    I have not received my December photo book. My history acct. states it was shipped Dec. 22, but I have not received it. Please advise. Thanks Elizabeth Alvarez

  40. Susan

    I don’t think I saw a clear answer. I’ve had a couple of phones due to damaged phones or upgrades. My iphone will automatically save any pic to dropbox. So many photos are there. I don’t know if there is a way to put those back on my iphone from dropbox. If yes, can you tell me how? If this is a possibility, I will subscribe. Please advise
    Thank you
