Hi Chatbookers,

Vanessa and I wanted to write today to announce a few important changes to the way we price and ship Chatbooks. These changes will go live 3 weeks from today—on Thursday, October 26th at noon Pacific Time.

Tl;dr: We’re increasing prices on a couple products in order to improve and simplify a few things.

Let’s cover the improvements first:

  • US Customers
  • Dramatically faster delivery times for our Free Shipping option
  • Free Shipping for all Ongoing Book Series subscriptions, both Softcover and Hardcover
  • Flat-rate “per shipment” pricing on Custom Book orders: $4 for Standard, $8 for Premium, and $24 for Express
  • A new, full-page photo layout option for all 6×6″ books, including Series Books—a fun feature previously available only on 8×8″ books

 

  • International Customers
  • Flat-rate “per shipment” pricing for all orders: $4 USD per shipment Standard or $8 USD per shipment Premium
  • A new, full-page photo layout option for all 6×6″ books, including Series Books—a fun feature previously available only on 8×8″ books

 

To make these improvements possible, we’re increasing the base price of our 60-page Softcover Ongoing Book Series from $8 to $10 per volume, and we’re increasing the base price of our 60-page Softcover Custom Book from $12 to $15.

A quick point for US Customers—the Ongoing Book Series price change may not even affect you—many of you have already upgraded to $2/book for the faster shipping method we are now offering for free.

Our support team will be working overtime to help you take advantage of our current pricing and finish up any books you may already have in progress before the October 26th price changes go live. And if you’d like to accelerate any “getting caught up” books waiting to print in your Ongoing Book Series, just send a quick note to support@chatbooks.com and we’ll make it happen.

We started this company just over 3 years ago, and incredibly there are now more than 150 of us at Team Chatbooks—and more than a million of you Chatbookers out there across the world. Please know how much we appreciate your support and how grateful we are to be able to do this work for you that we truly love.

Thank you again—we promise to keep working hard to make Chatbooks better and stronger, so we can continue to help you hold on to what matters most.
