LIFESTYLE | The Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer

I always loved the idea of having a mini portable printer, where I could print photos immediately at my own convenience – here’s how I’m getting on with the Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer..

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a complete photo fanatic and I hoard photos. I’ve always loved the idea of creating various scrapbooks and one day I will have the time to do this! I’ve started a scrapbook many times before, but never got round to completing it so one day I am determined to. It was a no brainer really for me to get a portable mini printer, as then it meant that it was so much easier for me to print the photos I wanted and get them right there and then.

Originally I wanted the HP Sprocket Printer (obvs the white version), but because it had only just been released at the time that I wanted it, it was sold out everywhere and so was the black version! So I went for the next best thing and to be honest it’s probably just as good and gives you the same outcome.

I was introduced to the below video, which I thought was really cool and quite funny! We all have those moments where we panic and forget to buy someone we love a gift for their birthday or an anniversary, so to have a polaroid printer on hand and create a more personal gift (even if it is last minute!) is an absolute life saver. I definitely prefer gifting my boyfriend with a more personal and thoughtful gift!


This mini portable printer would have been amazing for me to have last year for my friend’s 21st, as I made her a scrapbook (which legit took me f o r e v e r) and it would have been soo handy to have had this then! I ordered all of the prints off of Photobox, which definitely cost me more money and I spent time waiting for the photos to arrive, so at least now if I ever decide to that again for someone else, it will take me hopefully half the amount of time as I’ll be able to print the photos instantly!

Do any of you own a portable printer? What are your thoughts on them?xoxo♡ BlogLovin’ | Tumblr | Instagram | Twitter ♡
