Create + Share Memories With Polaroid Lab

This is a partnered post.

I love photography, I really feel it’s what captures us all in a moment of time that we want to remember, that can never be returned to, and it lets us relive a happy moment forevermore. I particularly love digital photography, because it makes it easy to take LOTS of images, and to delete mistakes, without much additional expense (growing up, photography was a hobby that cost me more than a small fortune). The big downfall of this wonderful new technology is that thousands of amazing pictures are stored away and forgotten, rarely to be seen again. The Polaroid Lab solves this problem, because when I capture a great picture, I can print it out, right away and in my home, and enjoy it forever. A special picture, a fabulous memory, shouldn’t be hidden away on a hard drive and never seen again.

Photography is part of my everyday because I value the moments that matter to me and want to have a snapshot of these times to hold and look at for years after. They bring me back to special times I cherished, so it was always important to me to not store my digital images away to be forgotten on a hard drive somewhere. I always wanted physical copies, and discovering the Polaroid Lab, which turns my smart phone pictures into actual photos I can display and share, is perfect! Handheld mementos are wonderful for me (especially full-size, since I don’t really love mini pics) to fill up photo albums, put on my office desk, and gift! Think of all those people in a group shot who would love a copy of a picture- now it’s super easy to give them one! Add a photo printed out by the Polaroid Lab to a beautiful picture frame and now it’s a gift for the grandparents.

The Polaroid Lab makes it so easy to print out images on your choice of compatible Polaroid film- originals i-Type and 600 film (whether it’s color, black and white, or special editions). It’s compatible with most android smartphones and iPhones beginning with the iPhone 6 and 6s onward. It converts digital images to analog to give you something you can hold. The Polaroid Lab is less than 1 1/2 pounds before it’s loaded with film, and pretty small (less than 6 inches in any direction) so you can take it along with you to share with others too. It comes with a high performance lithium battery and the app is available for both iOS and Android. It’s not a printer, it’s not a scanner, it’s the timeless image maker.

Surround yourself with your life’s story in happy photos, and keep adding to it as you build more memories. This is the magic of our wonderful gadgets, today’s fabulous photography technology, and Polaroid Lab.
