What are Portable Photo Printers and How Do They Work?

Anyone who wanted quickly printed photos in the past would have purchased a Polaroid (or any of the other instant cameras available on Moment, hehe!). But some photos didn't quite come out the way we envisioned or with the perfect lighting, composition, and more! but they did a respectable job - certainly enough to always be taken to our parties or on vacation.

Then came the smartphone, which changed everything with a single swipe of a finger. Now that we have iPhones, we can take high-quality pictures all the time, edit them on the go; but, printing them requires either waiting until we get home to use a printer or locating nearby stores.

Which portable photo printers are coming in handy. This pocket-size device connects to your smartphone through Bluetooth and allows you to direct photos from your cameras to the real world while maintaining the image quality, from the phone to the printed copy. They are particularly useful at parties and throughout the journey.

The Best Portable Photo Printers according to Our Best-Sellers

Just about all of us now holds a fantastic smartphone in our pockets on a daily basis, but the large percentage of the pictures we take never make it somewhere other than Instagram.

This is something that portable or instant printers are here to change. These pocket-sized portable printer devices will allow you to take your best phone photos and print them out wherever you are, all while adding effects, filters, and other fun features.

If you want something a little more retro, you can purchase a camera that prints images as you take them, similar to a Polaroid camera. Check out our roundup of the best seller photo printers:

Polaroid Lab

Impossible's Instant Lab has evolved into the modern Polaroid Lab. Impossible was purchased by Polaroid in 2017 and renamed Polaroid Originals. As a result, the company no longer has to be concerned with trademark problems, so the product was renamed. Unlike all of the other instant cameras and printers we've used, the Polaroid Lab doesn't just take a picture from your phone and print it. Instead, you use the Polaroid Originals app to pull up the picture on your tablet, then place it face down on the Lab. The Lab takes a photo of your phone's photo, adjusts the color for printing, and prints a Polaroid. It takes about 15 minutes to completely grow, just like old Polaroids.

Instax Mini Mini Link Smartphone Printer

Available in 3 different colors, the Fujifilm Instax Mini Connection is a new portable printer that uses Fujifilm's Instax Mini film. The Mini Connection has a youthful and fresh appearance, with funky color options and a youthful and fresh feel. It connects to your phone through Bluetooth and the Mini Link app, and it also works with Fujifilm X Series cameras. However, since it is unable to link to social media networks, you can only print images from your laptop.

You can access your picture library via the app and select frames and options such as split prints (dividing one photo into two prints) and collages.

Within the app, you can edit images using color filters and dials to adjust brightness, contrast, and saturation.

The printer can print up to 100 images on a single charge and has a print speed of about 12 seconds per print. It also supports continuous printing. A "match test" which prints a photo with a compatibility score between two persons, and a 'group print,' which allows users to add images from up to five phones to make one Instax print, are two very fun choices.


A great portable printer can transform your camera or smartphone into an instant camera to print your latest snapshot. You can not only print your images minutes after you've captured them through Bluetooth and WiFi but also use the best portable printers to print our pictures in a matter of seconds.
