I received my first camera at 10 years old. It was a pink rectangle with a removable flash that affixed to the top. I'd take photos of my family and my kitten. When my roll was full, I removed it, refilled, and took that film directly to the neighborhood Walgreens to get it developed. Holding pictures in my hands, hanging on my bulletin board, and taping them into books made me so happy.
Now, let's fast forward to now:
- I have 30k+ pictures on my computer.
- I have fewer than 100 printed pictures from the past five years.
- I have no clue where to even begin sorting and printing.
Disproportional to say the least.
A couple weeks ago, a company called Prynt reached out to me. "Would you like to know about a way that you can print family memories in the moment they happen directly from your phone?"
YES. The answer is yes. It was a quick no-brainer. I can collect photos of true moments as they happen! Brian and I looked at the website together and talked about how completely brilliant Prynt is. Allow me to tell you about it how simple it is:
- Attach your phone to the case and open the app to take your photo.
- Snap your photo, and the case begins filming a quick video of the action around your photo.
- Push the print button and watch your photo print immediately!
- Keep that photo for yourself, hang it on the wall, or hand it to a friend to keep forever! :)
I've been using the Prynt case wherever I go. We had a family get-together the other day... I took shots of cousins and kids and all the fun, printed the pics, and passed them around. There's something so great about snapping a photo, printing it right out, then keeping it and sticking it on my walls or fridge like I did in 1992. It's tangible and feels like an authentic slice of life right now.
Some extra fun things to note:
- The paper has adhesive, and can be stuck anywhere without any extra tape.
- The ink comes from the paper itself, so I don't have to worry about replacing cartridges.
- It works with several phones- you just have to order the proper case for your phone, and then adjust with an adaptor if you exchange your phone for a new one.
In case you're a visual person and want to see me give you a play by play tutorial, feel free to watch this basic video we made for it! :)
A Prynt case was sent to me for review. All opinions are my own. Thank you for your support!
