Apple’s Photo Print Products service enabled users to order photo books, prints, albums, and other items that featured pictures stored in Photos which used to be called iPhoto in the past. The company has now decided to shut down this service. A pop-up message that appears in Photos when running macOS 10.13.6 mentions that this service is going to be discontinued in September this year. There are no references to Apple’s own Photo Print Products service in macOS Mojave which confirms that the company is ending its own service for good.

The pop-up message also mentions that customers have to place their final print orders by September 30th, 2018. Once that date has passed they will not be able to place any print orders.

Apple has been operating this service since 2002 so it has been around for quite a long time. It previously offered simple prints only but was later expanded to offer photo books, albums, and calendars as well.

Apple is now suggesting that users get a third-party app from the Mac App Store to get prints. These apps link directly into Photos and basically do what Apple once did. The apps will offer print making services and users will be able to create books, cards, calendars, and prints using the pictures they have in Photos.
