Best Accessories for Polaroid Mint Camera and Printer 2020
The Polaroid Mint is one of the best digital cameras on the market today. We love it for its usefulness, versatility, and oh-so-sleek looks. When you snap a picture with the Mint, you decide what to do with it. Print it out on eco-friendly Zink paper if you like or save it to a memory card to share on social media or to edit on your computer later. Brilliant, right? If you're looking for some of the best Polaroid Mint accessories, you've come to the right place. Whether you need a portable power source, a memory card, or extra paper, we have you covered. Investing in these accessories is money well spent.
Stock up on photo paper
All the magic of the Polaroid Mint happens in the printer. Make sure you always have photo paper on-hand with this 30-pack from Zink. Zink paper is less wasteful than the vintage film of the 1980s. There are no cartridges, toners, or even ink with Zink. Instead, it's a natural print solution that uses heat to transfer your images to water and tear-resistant sheets of paper. And you can never have enough paper, right? Grab this 30-pack to tuck away for safekeeping, so it's always on-hand when needed.
Store lots of pictures in memory
One of the shining features of the Polaroid Mint is its ability to save photos in memory as well as print them out. The SanDisk Ultra 256GB memory card gives you enough room to store all your vacation photos and then some. Transfer pics from your camera to your computer at speeds up to 100MBs per second, which means you can move up to 1,000 photos per minute. The SanDisk Ultra kit includes the MicroSD card, an adapter, and a 10-year warranty. You can't beat that!
A smaller, budget memory card
Not everyone needs oodles of space on their memory card that they'll never use. You wouldn't buy a giant suitcase for a short two-day weekend trip, would you? This 64GB MicroSD from Silicon Power still holds thousands of photos and comes at a budget price that makes our stingy hearts smile. You'll get the MicroSD card, an adapter for your computer, and a 5-year warranty with Silicon Power.
If you like to display your photos or fancy yourself the best gift-giver on the block, Zink Square Frames are just for you. This DIY bundle comes with eight colorful photo frames, magnetic clothespins, and a rope for stringing and hanging photos. Alternatively, frames can sit on bookshelves, nightstands, and desks to keep your memories close. This bundle makes a great gift or decoration for parties!
Free up your outlets
The Mint comes with a USB cable and charger, but you can double your outlet's output and save time with AmazonBasic's Dual-Port USB Wall Charger. Charge your camera and another device at the same time using only one outlet. This is a compact unit with a folding plug that makes it a great travel companion. The AmazonBasic's 1-year warranty also covers it.
Add your own border
Zink Border Stickers are a cool way to spice up your Polaroid photographs and add a touch that's all your own. And they're easy to use. You peel the back off the border, align it with your photo, and stick it to your pic. This collection includes 100 border stickers in a variety of colors and patterns.
Leave love notes in the borders
Half the fun of taking instant photos comes after you print the picture. Thanks to the wide border on photo paper, you can leave notes and draw designs, adding a unique touch to every photograph you take and share. This 30-pack of fine point permanent markers from Shuttle Art is perfect for Polaroid prints. Ink is vivid, quick-drying, and fade-resistant.
Decorate to your heart's content
The Polaroid Sticker Set comes with more than 50 bright, one-of-a-kind stickers. Use them to personalize the borders of your photographs or stick them on your camera. The stickers are easy to apply, stay on firmly, and the edges never peel. They can also be removed without trouble when you want to switch things up.
Store your memories
The Zink 64-pocket photo album is a miniature memory book. This album comes with 16 built-in pages just waiting for your photos, and each page has four pockets perfectly sized for 2-by-3-inch Zink photo paper. The window covers on the pockets can also be decorated with markers or stickers. The Zink album gives you plenty of space to keep photos safe and also makes a beautiful gift.
Stay charged up on-the-go
There are few things more infuriating than suffering battery failure while you're out with your camera. This Anker PowerCore Portable Power Bank solves that problem. The Anker is an external battery pack that can keep your camera, phone, and other devices running when you're far away from an outlet. It comes with two USB ports, recharges itself in 10 hours, and is available in four colors.
Take it all with you
Keep all your gear safe on the way to school or while traveling with the beautiful Matein Travel Backpack. Space is abundant inside. There are pockets and compartments for chargers, battery packs, pens, keys, your phone, and even a 15-inch laptop. You'll protect your investment and take a load off at the same time with Matein.
