I've always had my christmas cards made straight out of iPhoto with Apple but I read they have discontinued that service. I know there are many places that provide this service but I was hoping for a recommendation from the forum. The cards I received thru Apple were excellent quality.

Costco. Fast, excellent quality, cheap. Design your card online and pickup in the store or have delivered to you.

.............just saw this....


5 alternatives to Apple’s discontinued print services for photo books, calendars, and cards

....Custom photo books and calendars make great gifts, and it’s fun to set yourself apart with unique holiday greeting cards. However, after Apple announced it would be discontinuing its native photo printing services this past fall, this is the first holiday season that users will need to find a substitute. Follow along for five alternatives to print your photo books, calendars, and cards with the Photos App on Mac as well as iPhone and the web.

Even though Apple discontinued its printing services that were built-in to its Photos app, users don’t necessarily have to use a completely different app to get prints. Apple is supporting Photos extensions from third-parties to offer printing options.

We learned that the printing partner Apple worked with for its first-party solution, RR Donnelley, has released Motif as one Photos extension choice. Apple later released a support document sharing a few other plug-ins like Mimeo, Mpix, and more.

As far as these third-party extensions go, none have stellar ratings so far. Some of the low ratings have to do with frustration about how they are different from the previous built-in printing options, and some include feedback on features that need to be added or changed.

For now, Motif has the highest rating with 2.7/5 stars. We’ll look at three Photos extensions for Mac and then a couple of other options from Google and using your local pharmacy like Walgreens with iPhone and more.



5 alternatives.............?!

35% "off" until 11 dec

Target has Kodak machines here. You have to walk by them as you walk in the store. They stand out because they are yellow in a sea of red.

I always go to Walgreens because it's such a pain in the rear otherwise. Walgreens is fast and convenient.

Walgreens here. Quality is adequate. For a mass run of Christmas cards to scatter to the world it's fine. They run specials fairly often.
