Polaroid Snap Shines and New Print App Launches

- 8 years ago

Polaroid. Yes, the brand that basically invented instant photography, stamp Photokina 2016 with big drives and new offerings


PhotoBite made a beeline for the Polaroid stand, during Photokina 2016 and found news of their all-new Print Store  as we were encouraged to believe that theirs is the only official app of its kind, offering a number of ways to personalise, print and display photos. It’s pretty cool on the face of it and the prints promise the look and feel of the original Polaroid Camera Instant Prints, with heavy thick laminate front and back, originally styled black photographic back, original barcode detail and a glossy high quality photo print finish.


The app is simple to use; all you need to do is choose the photos you want to print from your phone, Facebook or Instagram and select how you want your photos to be printed i.e. framed, canvas, mini print etc.  You can even edit your photos in the app before you send them off to print, by cropping and adding captions.


When it comes to the Polaroid Snap Touch, well, this is Polaroid’s latest instant digital camera that allows snap, print, and share all of your photos instantly with app-driven creative & new Bluetooth connectivity. We’ll be taking a closer look at this beauty in the not-too-distant future, so stay in touch!
