Ever wish you could print out a photo from your cell phone, RIGHT after you take it?
With this new product, you can!
Polaroid is making it easy to not only get immediate sharing of your cell phone photos, but to use them in your craft and DIY projects, like Father's Day cards and gifts, with their new Polaroid Zip
instant photo printer,
This small, lightweight printer allows you to quickly print pictures from your phone, or tablet, using Bluetooth or NFC! So NO cords needed! It lets you print out 2”x 3” photo prints directly from your phone’s camera roll, or your favorite social media accounts. It comes with a USB cord for recharging, a pack of Zink paper, and instructions, because that is ALL you need!
As you can see there is just one button- the ON button! This is a simple device to use! You merely download the app, turn on Bluetooth or NFC, on your phone, then find the Zip and connect. And you're ready to print! It's THAT easy for set up! The white light will be solid when it's ready to print, then flash white as it's printing, so you know your photo is coming! As you can see, it fits in the palm of your hand, so it's SUPER easy to carry with you on the go too!
The best part is there’s no mess! The Polaroid Zip uses ZINK technology and requires no ink. If you're of a certain age, when you hear Polaroid, you may think you need to wait for ink to dry, and you may have a smell memory. But I'm here to tell you there is NONE of that with the new special ZINK photo paper! In fact, you can immediately pull over the backing, to expose a sticky back, allowing you to put the photos wherever you want them! And NO smudging! And your photo is printed in about 60 seconds
I love that the paper comes with a blue card, so that you know WHICH side to put down into the printer! If they get mixed up, it's sticky side down! to insert the paper you just click and pull the top off of the Zip and then insert the paper, then put the lid back on, it's just THAT simple!
The FREE Polaroid Zip app is available for iOS & Android phones and tablets, and allows you to immediately print, or to edit the photo directly in the app! There are even special frames, graphics and text for you to add to your photo, as you can see by the photo above. The app is self-intuitive and leads you through the steps, and even shows you how it is printing!
As you can see the photos print out really well! However, as you can see, they do darken a tad, so you might want to make sure that your photos have enough light before you send them to the printer.
Miss Grace decided to use the printer for a Father's Day card for Papa!
In the photo above, she tried the HDR setting to help lighten up the photo some (it helped a lot). She also needed it smaller, so she moved it down and then was able to CUT it into the right size. yup- you can CUT the ZINK paper with no problem, so you can get speciality shapes too!
As you can see, I helped her with the writing, and she decided on a layout. It really elevates a simple card to a cherished memory to keep forever!
We LOVE this new Polaroid Zip printer and can't imagine not having it around now! There are just SO many uses for it!
The Polaroid Zip can be found at most electronic stores, or online. It is available in 4 colors: black, blue, red and white. The Zink paper comes in 20 and 30 count packs.
This is a great present to give as well! I can imagine many a high school or college graduate using it ALL the time! It's a gift that will keep on giving enjoyment too! So if you are looking for an unique present, give this one a look!
