No Worries!
With our in-app reminders, we doubt you will forget.
However, if you do forget, you can always 'PUBLISH' that magazine next month. Each subscription payment (monthly or quarterly) acts as a credit. That credit can be used whenever, as long as you maintain an active account.
When you complete PUBLISHING any magazine, the app will ask you if you’d like to send a copy. Tap Yes, and the app will walk you through entering their addresses, etc.
The magazine copies print when your magazine does, and ship to whomever you add!
Under the settings menu you can see your Order History. Each previous magazine is listed there alongside a 'REORDER' button.
To create additional custom magazines from within the app:
Tap ‘Create an Additional Magazine’ under the settings menu
This charge will enable a brand new magazine to be published right away
• Select your new magazine's photos & customize the date/title

We'll be sad to see you go, but you can cancel at anytime. There is a Cancel Account button within the settings menu on the app.


The app curates 50/100 of your most recent photos from your camera roll in a grid, all of which will be in the magazine if no edits are made. The more you delete – older ones fill into the grid. Every magazine needs exactly 50/100 photos.

To edit simply:
double tap to delete
• single tap to view fully
• press and drag to move
• press and hold Nested shots to expand and include them all

The navbar at the bottom of the photo grid makes it simple. Just tap to select alternate months, folders (Instagram, Snapchat, etc), selfies and favorites. Those photos will fill your grid!
  1. Open Apple’s Photos App
  2. Make a custom album (title it First Birthday, Sisters, Summer Vacation 2017, etc…)
  3. Add at least 50/100 photos depending on what type of magazine you want to print
  4. Open Recently
  5. Select that album
  6. Adjust Title/Date in settings
  7. Tap 'PUBLISH'!
That is a nested photo. It represents a series of photos you took closely together. We automagically select our favorite to print in your magazine so you don’t have to waste time editing. If you want to see/print the others just press and hold that photo, and the others will appear in your grid. Then they will all be included in the magazine.
Swipe the cover preview to select alternate cover options for your magazine.
Single tap the cover photo to set the cropping.
A single photo wraps around the whole cover on the magazines. Therefore using a landscape photo (horizontal) is the best choice. It will get cropped the least! The cover photo is the only photo cropped when making a magazine.
Nope. The photos in the grid are thumbnails. Single tap on them to see them in full.


Yup! But not your average flimsy throwaway. Think high-end art magazine. …With your life as the subject. It’s a meticulously laid out, 7×10 magazine, press-printed on premium heavy stock paper, showcasing up to 100 of your recent photos.
Under the settings menu, you can select either a Half Page layout or a Full Page one. Half Page magazines include 100 photos in the magazine, great for printing as many as possible. The Full Page layout magazines include 50 photos per magazine, and print full bleed taking up more of the page with your gorgeous imagery.
We print exclusively on Mohawk Paper. Mohawk is a third-generation, family-owned, US manufacturer that is constantly renewing its commitment to environmental stewardship.
