About Us

Welcome to Instorya, your number one source of photobooks. We're a family brand dedicated to preserve your memories in a photobook, using Instorya app (mobile application) which is convenient, easy to use and combines photos from your camera roll and various social media platforms. We are also the first to provide a subscription feature (Instorya Series) that automatically generates photobooks that you can customize and send out on a monthly basis. Instorya is about looking back at all your memories and realize how amazing your life has been – and what better way to share this with your children and friends.  

Our Story

Instorya was the brainchild of a Filipina mom who grew up without much of childhood photos. At 13, when her eldest brother travelled to heaven, she and family heavily relied on what photos left of him to remember all their happy memories.

By the time that she gave birth to her first child, she and her husband made a pact to preserve their family photos as much as they can so their family can always remember their memorable moments of their life.

She found herself searching through numbers of printer companies that could produce the perfect quality of photo book without breaking the bank but without much of luck her passion drove her then to start Instorya that eases the process of ordering and printing happy memories of each family's household.
