To Know:

Connect your Smartphone to the printer wirelessly via Bluetooth, and you're able to add text to your photos, resize, apply a filter, play with the contrast — the options are endless. Swipe up on your Smartphone photo and print. How easy is that?

The Tangible Approach to Instant Sharing...

Unlike an instant camera, this printer is different. You're able to upload ANY image you have from your phone or camera into the App and print with ease. You know what the picture will look like (unlike the uncertainty that comes from film) and edit the scene with Instax's creative printing mode options. The bad boy is the perfect party-goer, instantly printing tangible memories for your friends and family on Instax-wide film. It's like film, but it isn't. You get the best of both worlds.

As much as I love the varied Instax prints from their cameras, the original format is only 1.8 inches by 2.4 inches — which is relatively tiny and unpurposeful. This Instax Link Wide Smartphone Printer brings the company's biggest instant film to a standalone printer, ensuring a quality physical photo in the palm of your hand.

Instax is known for its incredible line of instant cameras, completely changing the social experience of human interaction — i.e., parties, travel, etc. Every great event I've ever been to showcases one of Intax's instant cameras on a nearby table. However, the effort it takes to snap a picture requires more attention than a simple selfie taken on a phone. Therefore, having a printer, such as Link Wide, makes it easy to print any chosen. Print multiple of the same image, too, to share amongst the group. It's fun, easy, and so reliable.

The camera doesn't just stop at printing. Apply a QR code to your photo to link to a URL, hear sounds you recorded and view secret messages and locations just by scanning the QR code with your Smartphone. Additionally, you're able to edit the images to match the style of print preferred. Be creative with the Sketch, Edit & Print feature to import text and sketches as you customize your photos. With the Collage Print feature, add multiple images together to create fun collages. Also, choose from over 1,600 "stickers" in the App to apply to your photo.

The Details:

Printing has never been easier — select and edits your photo from your Smartphone, then print. Customize your prints, whether it's with the conventional photo quality of "INSTAX-Natural Mode" or the new "Instax-Rich Mode," which features extra-vibrant color. Add richness to the moments that matter most with a QR code. By doing this, you're able to link to a website, add audio to your images to enhance memory, creative invitation templates, or share heartfelt messages.
