What we most photograph memorable moments with is usually what we carry with us, It’s our mobile. 
That’s why I thought I’d show you some smartphone printers. So that you truly immortalize them, not for as long as your device lives.

In this digital age in which we accumulate images on our hard drives, we make the serious mistake of letting our photographs live only through social networks, an ephemeral life. When precisely the value of photography is to make an instant last forever.


Let’s first talk about the pros and cons of these portable printers.

The advantages are their size and weight, as they are really small and light. In addition, they do not require ink refills. They are very easy to use and the adhesive paper that some of them offer is a plus.

On the other hand, the quality is not that wonderful and they are small-sized photos (except with the Instanx Link Wide). They are pocket printers and you have to count on it. With some, the colors are a bit dull, something you can fix by turning up the saturation before printing. From HP they also have some recommendations to improve the print quality with the HP sprocket.

Keep in mind that they are more designed for souvenir photographs that you want at the moment, for a travel book that you are doing on the go, at a party or family gathering so that everyone can take their memory, a family diary, etc. .

Let’s now see our recommended models of mobile printers.

Smartphone printers are portable, their function is not to print photos of the best quality or in large sizes, but to immortalize moments at the same moment, on a trip, a celebration, when you get home after a day worth remembering, to create a travel, or family, or life diary…

It’s turning your smartphone into an instant camera so that a photo you really want to save doesn’t get drowned in a sea of ​​images inside your phone.
