A step above the average

Polaroid Mint Pocket Printer: What I like

The Polaroid Mint Pocket Printer is an incredibly easy to use, portable instant printer without any mess that allows you to print high quality, sticker-like photos in 30 seconds thanks to its Zink paper, which uses heat-activated dye crystals and color layers within the paper itself instead of ink to print your images. Not only that, but unlike other instant printers, you shoot the image with your iPhone and have the opportunity to edit the heck out of it to make it perfect. As someone who loves photography and iPhone photography, this printer really is a dream come true for me.

Not cheap

Polaroid Mint Pocket Printer: What I don't like

The higher price tag isn't always the most appealing to people, and I can totally understand that, but it is a one-time buy of a wickedly functional instant printer. Want to know what isn't a one-time purchase? The paper. The Zink printer paper can get quite pricey if you're printing a ton of images every day.

Fun and creative photography tech

Polaroid Mint Pocket Printer: Bottom line

The Polaroid Mint Pocket Printer is one of the best instant printers out there for a variety of very good reasons: it's portable, it's easy-to-use, it's nice to look at… it's just a fantastic and functional photography accessory all 'round.

Chances are you won't be disappointed if you're spending your hard earned dough on this portable photography miracle, and I'm so happy that this insta-printer is so incredibly awesome. I mean, what else can you expect from the print masters at Polaroid?
