LG Pocket Photo printer
Portable, easy to set up, and just plain fun, the LG Pocket Photo printer is a great tool to use if you want to bring your iPhoneography to life. The LG Pocket Photo works wirelessly or attaches with a cable to your iPhone. From there you can use the LG Pocket Photo app to edit, tweak, and customize your iPhoneography snapshots before printing. Then, all you have to do is print off your favorite photos from the rechargeable, inkless printer, and voila!
You can also easily add a QR code to your printed pictures to share them with friends across social media; just enter your social network's URL, and you can start sharing your pictures instantly IRL and online.
The Prynt Case
Remember in Harry Potter how the pictures and portraits would move around, almost like a real-life GIF? What if you could make that happen in the real world… And not just with a printer, but a printer that doubles as an amazing phone case?
Enter the Prynt Case, the iPhone case/printer that will truly blow your mind.
While not the slimmest, most inconspicuous case to use (it feels a bit like you're attaching your phone to a point-and-shoot camera honestly), Prynt's design allows people to instantly capture and print not only pictures directly from their phone, but also print video.
What does this mean exactly? Well, with every Prynt snapshot you take, you also capture a short video clip that comes to life through the magic of augmented reality — open the Prynt app on your phone, point the camera at the printed photo, and the video will play right there on your screen! Seriously, how super cool is that?
Impossible Instant Lab
The Impossible Instant Lab lets you print beautiful, vivid iPhoneography straight from your iPhone without any hassle or headache. After The Impossible Project bought Polaroid's instant film factory, they began to breathe life back into their passion for photography with innovative products like the Impossible Photo Lab that turns your iPhoneography photos into Polaroids.
Simply pull up a picture you've snapped with your iPhone or iPad, place it on top of the printer (which resembles an accordion fusing with a classic Polaroid camera), pull the dark slide and your photo is transferred to the instant color film.
Unlike an actual Polaroid camera, you get to pick which photos get printed, and you can even spend some time editing them to be absolute perfection before you do.
Smartphone Photo Cube Printer
Print all of your iPhoneography favorites on crisp, high-quality paper with the Smartphone Photo Cube printer. Easy to use and super simple to install, the Smartphone Photo Cube is a perfect partner for iPhoneographers who are looking to print out their photos without a lot of hassle. All you have to do is connect your iPhone to the dock or via USB and pick which pictures are worthy of being printed. You can also use their free app to print collages, greeting cards, I.D. photos, wallet-size photos, panoramas, and more!
The best part about the Photo Cube are the printer cartridges, which conveniently and neatly store all the paper and ink to make borderless color photos in three sizes: 4"x6", 4"x11", or 4"x16".
Instax SHARE SP-1
Shoot, send, print. It's that easy with the Instax SHARE SP-1 iPhoneography photo printer! You can instantly send images directly from your iPhone wirelessly to the SHARE printer and develop them in a flash. This compact, fun, and stylish printer works through Fujifilm's Instax SHARE app, so you can edit and tweak your photos to look exactly how you want them to.
The social media template also allows people to link to Facebook or Instagram, and allows you to print social media images instantly from said sites.
Now what will you print?
