What is zapptales?
With zapptales you can print your WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger chat and transform it into a unique book – the perfect gift or to hold on to your best memories. With zapptales you have the possibility to edit your WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger messages, deleting those you don‘t want to include in your book, changing the size of the pictures, choosing a cool background and personalizing names and colors.
Print a WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger chat? Yes, it’s possible 🙂
Just imagine: Print the entire WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger conversation (including all pictures) – your own love story, your travel journal, a modern baby book, to say thank you to your bridesmaid or as a gift to your best friend…
It’s the perfect gift for your anniversary, birthday, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s day, Christmas, to say thank you or goodbye, or as a keepsake – for your friend, your husband, your wife, your fiancé, your mum, your dad, your grandparents, your fellow travellers or your colleagues… Or, of course, to keep forever!
However, if you have no interest in a physical book you can also download the same content as PDF and store it as a beautiful WhatsApp backup copy.
What cover types can I choose from to print my zapptales book?
To print your WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger chat as a book, you can choose between a softcover and hardcover version. Both versions are printed in a DIN A5 format (14.8 x 21.0 cm). The cover has a thickness of 2mm and we use 115g/qm glossy paper for the print.
What happens with emojis and stickers?
Of course, all the emojis and stickers from your chat conversation are printed as well 😎
Can I merge different chat conversations in one book?
Yes, that’s possible. With this, you can, e.g.; expand a chat, you have already uploaded or a part which is missing due to changing a phone, or phone number. You can even print chats with different chatpartners in one book with this option. 😎
In order that it works, you need to upload the chats to zapptales and inform our support team via firstname.lastname@example.org. The team will then start the merge directly via our software. 😊
Important: It’s only possible to merge two different chats without a time overlap. In case of an overlap, only the first chat will be completely uploaded. The other chat will be added starting on the last date of the first chat.
Does zapptales also print books from other instant messaging services or text messages?
You don’t want to print a WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger conversation, but a chat from a different messaging service? Currently, we print WhatsApp chats and Facebook Messenger chats as a book. We are already working on integrating other messaging services.
I want to print my WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger chat as a book. How long can my chat be? Is there a data limit?
There is no data limitation if you want to print your WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger chat – your chat can be as long as you want. Very long chats are simply divided into volumes.
Is there a page limit for my zapptales book?
No, there is no page limit. You can print your entire chat as a book. So that you don’t have to lug around bricks and for the binding to be as crisp in 10 years’ time as it is today, chats with more than 500 pages are automatically divided into volumes. This FAQ point tells you more about how exactly this is done.
Is there a minimum length my chat needs to have to be printed as a book?
There is no exact minimum length you chat needs to have – yet, to turn it into a book, it needs at least 36 pages. But don’t worry – if your chat has less than 36 pages, our software adds plain pages and you can still print a book. On these pages, you can add personal notes, write down your thoughts or add more pictures to make your book even more personal! 🙂
I have already saved my WhatsApp chat as a Word or PDF document. Can I send this file to zapptales and turn it into a book?
No, please send your WhatsApp chat directly from WhatsApp to zapptales. Other file formats such as Word or PDF cannot be printed as a zapptales book.
I have already saved my WhatsApp chat as an email. Can I forward this email to zapptales?
Yes, with zapptales you can also print a WhatsApp chat you have already saved as an email. Please forward this email to email@example.com. Should you receive an error message, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help you with this.
