Textolife was born in 2013 with some help from my little sister Laura following a family anecdote. In our family, we have a tradition of making homemade gifts.
For Christmas 2013, I had the idea to offer to my parents, my brother and sister Laura, a book containing our text messages group conversation of the year with all the pictures. The creation was long and laborious, because everything was « handmade » because I collected screenshots in a file: the result was a success. Reading the book, we laughed, cried and mostly, we remembered these moments our lives.
But to remake such a book in the same conditions is just unthinkable: too long, too complicated, too expensive.
So we decided to set up an automated process which could offer to anyone the opportunity to create a Text message book and build their personal story, so that the best moments of life can’t be lost.
Beyond the number of hours of work that we have been asked to hand-craft our book, this gift has created a wonderful surprise! So my sister and I wanted to open this project to all so that the best moments of life can be shared indefinitely
