Polaroid has launched a new £81.99 pocket printer. Called the Polaroid Hi-Print, it uses the dye-sublimation process for fade-proof prints.
Claiming to bridge the gap between instant photography and digital creativity, the printer is designed to turn photos, screenshots and the digital world of your smartphone into high-quality, 2 x 3 inch credit card-sized, self-adhesive prints.
As Polaroid expands its range of portable, easy-to-use mobile printers, the dye-sublimation printing technology offers brilliant, consistent, and high-resolution photographs, it claims. With all-in-one cartridges, the Polaroid Hi-Print printer uses heat to seal in the final image in under a minute for water-resistant prints. Featuring an adhesive back, Polaroid Hi-Print photos find their homes on lockers, scrapbooks, and more.
The Polaroid Hi-Print is the first instant digital product to be released from Polaroid since the company’s rebrand in March, marking its dedication to all facets of the classic Polaroid experience: transforming memories into physical photos.
The Polaroid Hi-Print brings mobile photos and memories to life through the iOS and Android supported app. The Polaroid Hi-Print app allows users to further unleash their creativity with an extensive suite of photo editing tools including filters, overlays, frames, text, stickers, and more.
The Polaroid Hi-Print uses 2.1inch x 3.4inch (54 × 86mm) paper cartridges. The new dye-sub paper offers an all-in-one cartridge containing a colour ribbon and 10 sheets of photo paper, with two cartridges included in each package. Polaroid claims it is all you need to print pocket size, lifelike photos.
