Frequently Asked Questions
How much does FromABirdie cost?
The Internet based part of FromABirdie is absolutely free. You can use the system as many times as you want, to create as many albums and write as many letters as you want. There are no restrictions in terms of length of messages or size of photographs. It's all free.
How many people can contribute to an album?
There are no limitations.
How many albums can I create?
Again, no limitations here.
Can I customize the album?
Yes, FromABirdie lets you (and we encourage you) to customize the album: you can write introductory and thank-you notes for the people who come to the site to write letters, and you can also add introductory and closing remarks that are shown to the recipient before and after he or she reads the letters. And, of course, you can set and change the delivery date for the album.
For an upcoming release, we're planning to add customizable templates, so each album can look special and unique.
Can I create an album on my own Internet domain, such as http://happy-birthday-joe.com?
We are planning support for that functionality in the near future.
For how long does the album stay on the website after the recipient has seen it?
By default we keep the album for 60 days after the delivery date, just so that we can make room for other albums. However, we'll be happy to keep an album for longer if the recipient so requests it.
