Printing smartphone photos is making a comeback, thanks to companies like Artifact Uprising and TurnGram, but the Nanagram service is taking it a step further by not just printing photos but also delivering photos of one's choice to relatives. The service was originally created by Andy Cook who wanted to find a better way to share photos with his grandfather who had recently stopped driving. The aim of the Nangram service is not just to share photos but to also combat the loneliness and isolation felt by some seniors and to give them a better sense of connection.
The service currently does not have an app and instead has users text photos with captions to a phone number connected to their account. This system allows a single account to be easily shared with multiple people and distinguishes itself from similar photo-printing services. The Nanagram service can currently print and mail 10 4x4 or 4x6 photos to loved ones and is available for a fixed monthly rate of $7.99.
