Capturing Memories Made Easy
Being Empty Nesters is a great chapter of life to be in, but if it’s one thing I’ve learned through the years, it’s to cherish those moments. Living in the moment is something that I’ve really been working hard on, and enjoying time with family and friends. But when I get the chance to travel with my “girlfriends”, I’m all over it. While I’m not a “crafty” person by nature, the older I get the more I enjoy some of the “old school” ways of life, for example printed pictures.
There is just something about about being able to print the pictures from anywhere that makes it more fun. Plus we have spent lots of time traveling this summer to see our grandson, daughter and her husband. I’ve taken a page or two from her on the go handbook, and learned more than a few things about myself over the summer. I’m not a Pinterest Mom or even a Pinterest Grandma, but having the KODAK Smile Instant Digital Printer allows me to have a personalized phone case in a matter of minutes.
Whether you are capturing a day at the park as a last minute summer trip these two products will help you capture memories and turn them instantly into Personalized Photo Stickers. Zink paper is absolutely fabulous and it works with compact mobile photo printers like the Kodak Smile, Polaroid ZIP, Canon Ivy and Polaroid Mint which are all are incredible popularity among students, faculty and parents for their ability to transform digital selfies into a lasting, physical memory.
With nothing more than a solid Bluetooth connection, these pocketsize mobile printers use ZINK Zero Ink’s inkless printing tech and paper to allow you to instant-print directly your smartphone. All the colors required for high-quality, photographic printing are embedded in the ZINK paper. ZINK photo paper is waterproof, and tear- and smudge resistant, and adhesive-backed. This is going to be the bet way to decorate lockers because it is personalized and will look fabulous.
My favorite is the Kodak Smile because most of us already carry a high-end camera everywhere you go in the form of our smartphone, these devices combine the flexibility and fun of using filters and image editing on your phone with the delight of having a printed copy of your photo without having to purchase (or carry) another device. Whether you are capturing the last of the summer memories, or the first day back to school, the Polaroid Zip and Kodak Smile are perfect for all occasions.
As you can see the Polaroid Mint does have a little bit of a “learning” curve, as there were a few pictures that we tossed. But the kids Bryar and Sage enjoyed snapping pictures while on vacation this summer. Available in Red, Blue, Yellow and Black you can accessorize it with any outfit. We used it as a camera, but you can download the Polaroid app which lets your unlock editing featuring including crop, filter effects, stickers & other creative flair for your craft projects.
