Move over Picasso...Motif has launched wall art! Create your first canvas art piece for 15% less with code MakeSomeArt.

Turn the thousands of photos on your phone into precious memories you can treasure for years to come. Motif’s smart technology auto-selects your best pictures seamlessly to create stunning quality photo books and calendars that last a lifetime.

Transform your pictures into premium, personalised photo books, calendars, and cards and create wonderful keepsakes using your laptop, today!

Here’s why you should choose Motif to bring your memories to life:

Quality you can trust
For over a decade while Apple offered printed photo products, Motif Photos printed Apple’s photo books, cards, and calendars. Motif uses the same printing plant and presses used for previous Apple Photos products. Your photo books, calendars, and cards will make a beautiful first impression. They'll stand the test of time as our papers provide true whiteness, bright colours, and no image bleed on the reverse side. Motif uses only the finest papers and richest inks.

Compatible with Apple Photos
Have a photo book project in Apple Photos you need to convert? Motif can convert your Apple photo album projects to Motif projects so you can print them quickly and easily.

Global and sustainable
Motif delivers to 34 countries across North America, Central America and Europe. And you can share your favourite moments with a happy heart knowing we’re deeply committed to using sustainable, durable materials. We constantly strive to minimise our carbon footprint.

Create your photo projects instantly
Motif uses machine learning to select your best photos. We use your photos’ image resolution, focus, clarity, people, faces, and chronology to recommend your very best images, remove duplicates, and provide easy ways to browse similar images. Plus, our Autoflow feature flows the curated collection into a photo book, calendar, or card, sequencing them chronologically, selecting the best page layouts, and correctly positioning faces in frames.

Simple to use
Pick a visual design that matches your personal style or that captures key life events like weddings, holidays, anniversaries, birthdays or the simple joys of everyday life. You can, of course, also build your book by hand if you prefer.

Motif makes the selection of colours, themes, fonts and layouts easy, so your final product looks truly professional with so much less time and effort on your part.


Photo Books
Create a photo book from classic and durable hardcovers to modern, magazine-like satin softcovers. Motif photo albums are the perfect way to gift your memories to loved ones or yourself!

Photo Calendars
Celebrate the joy of the year just passed or the promise of the new one ahead with a fresh monthly reminder of the life you live and the people you love. Create calendars from 12 - 24 months, in all our supported languages, and with local holidays included!

Photo Cards
Whether it’s an elegant invitation, a tasteful thank you, or a tantalising postcard from abroad, reach out to someone you love with a memory that means something. Motif offers elegant, custom folded cards and casual and convenient postcards.


We want you to be absolutely thrilled with your purchase of a Motif premium photo project. Should you for any reason be less than thrilled, we’ll reprint your project or refund you. 100% guaranteed.

Crashes, and then crashes some more

Almost impossible to use, crashes all the time. Making a calendar and it crashed 25 times so far, this is beyond nuts. Just bad software - avoid and use an alternative service.

Developer Response ,

Please email us at so we can find solutions to the issues you mentioned. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, The Motif Team.

Closes all the time

I spent 3-4 hours converting a photo book with 45 pages last night. the app closed about 30-35 times especially when you change the background colour of a page. Useless! Needs a lot of work!
