Hi my lovelies!

If you’re a memory keeper or a travel journaler, chances are you’ve come across one or more of the cute portable photo printers there are on the market.

There are a couple to choose from, and I have two of them, so I thought I’d do a little side by side comparison so you can see them in action. This isn’t a sponsored post or anything, I just thought it might be helpful to look at the similarities and differences up close if you’re considering getting a fun new gadget.

I’ll show you how they both work, and how the printed photos look, in the video below:


(I feel like I have to tell you that that’s black gesso under my nails, not dirt. That stuff is hard to shift, and being an artist makes you look grotty.)

Instax pros:

  • Really cute polaroid style photos
  • Prints slightly faster
  • Film easier to load

Sprocket pros:

  • Film and machine both more compact than Instax
  • Prints edge to edge
  • Prints stickers

Pros of both:

  • The both connect wirelessly to your phone
  • They both allow you to edit photos in their apps
  • They can both be connected to your social media accounts
  • They make memory keeping on the go a lot of fun
  • They add variety to traditional memory keeping spreads
  • You can share physical photos with your friends

I hope this helps you make the right choice for yourself if you’re considering an instant photo printer.

See you soon! xxx
