Burlington-based tech company Notabli allows parents to post photos, notes, quotes and audio recordings of their children on a scrollable timeline they can share with family and friends. Think of it as a virtual scrapbook. Now, Notabli users can also create real books chronicling their kids' lives. In January, the company introduced Notabli books, a subscription service that generates and sends hardcover volumes with high-resolution photos for $39 per book.

"There's no shortage of places you can get books printed," Notabli CEO Mike DeCecco acknowledges. But he says Notabli's photo books stand out because of the quality — of the prints and the books themselves — the price, which he describes as lower than comparable offerings from other companies, and the process by which they're created. Before launching its book-printing service, Notabli talked with parents, many of whom said that making photo books online often feels labor- and time-intensive. That's why Notabli automatically loads images into books as users post them. When 50 photos have been uploaded with captions, the book is printed and shipped for free.

It's possible to exclude unwanted photos or make books featuring one or multiple children — and more custom upgrades are on the way. It's enough to make you want to smile for the camera.­
