I’ve been a Polaroid fan for all of my life. I think I’ve told you before that I’ve always collected cameras, since I was seven. I remember my neon yellow camera, and then stealing my sister’s neon pink camera! Then my parents gave me my first Polaroid camera. It was big and gray and to me, it was the most beautiful thing on earth. Suddenly I had this vehicle for getting the images in my head out in print. It was a way to turn photos into physical copies, and to this day, I still have some of those ORIGINAL Polaroid prints from my first camera. And we’re talking 1990!
Turn Your Digital Pictures Into Polaroid Prints with Polaroid Lab:
First of all, what is it?
It’s a portable photo lab that simplifies and expedites turning your smartphone photos into handheld mementos. Magic! The Polaroid Lab is not a printer or a scanner, but an instant formula for timeless images. It takes what is digital and makes it analog, from something on a screen to a tangible thing you can gift, hang on your wall, and hold in your hand.
Specs we love:
- You can print out color and black and white! Compatible Film Polaroid: Originals i-Type and 600 film (Color, Black & White and Special Editions)
There are many compatible smartphones: iPhone 6, 6s, 7, 8, X, Xs and newer, Most Android™ Smartphones
It weighs just over a pound – 1.44lbs (6.55 grams) without the film pack
The App is available for iOS (iOS 11+) and Android (5+)
And that’s it! Pretty amazing, right? Now, digital pictures don’t have to stay as so! You can print out pictures for your whole wall! For a collage, for a gift, for a bulletin board, for your kid’s show and tell, and for so much more! Plus, the instant quality is fun. You do wait about 10-15 minutes (depending on color vs. black and white) to get your perfect picture, but it’s just so worth it! No waiting for a slow printer, or sending your photos out to a lab and getting them a week later!
