Good app but frustrating check out

This is really easy to use, and quick to create great books. Would like to see more flexibility in book themes - plain white doesn’t appear to be available with 8 pictures/page which is my preference. Check out was excruciating - finally figured out that it doesn’t like spaces in the postcode which it doesn’t tell you - hopefully this will save someone else the frustration! Have ordered my first book and hopefully I’ll be pleased with the results - always used to get my photo books through Apple which were fab - if they are like those I shall be happy.

Good App

For the actual photobook it seems like it’s a great app, easy to use and it shows you if there’s any mistakes/things that need to be changed. However it was really frustrating that you could only write around one line if you wanted to add text otherwise it would pop up with a message saying it had to be changed otherwise you couldn’t checkout. I ended up changing the font size so I’m just hoping it won’t be ridiculously small.

Another issue was that it was extremely difficult to checkout! I kept getting a message saying it couldn’t checkout because my postcode was wrong and I changed it so many times but couldn’t figure out how to fix it. In the end I realised that there couldn’t be a space in between the postcode, like other websites put it. Eventually I got it though so hopefully when it arrives the book will be great!

Simple, Great Quality and Value for Money

We live in the UK and we went through numerous photo album websites trying to find the right one to create an album for our wedding photos. All of them were either too complicated or way too expensive. Using Motif made it really quick and easy to get a big album of over 400 photos. We were blown away by the quality of the album when it arrived. I never usually leave reviews but felt compelled to share our great experience and would urge anyone in a similar situation to use Motif too.
