In the 1990s, printing photos was the need of the hour as we didn't have smartphones to store photos but nowadays, everything is digital. We are so accustomed to having pictures in digital form, whether on our cellphones, laptops, DSLRs, or tablets, that we rarely print photos these days.
Instant polaroid printers and instant cameras are making a big comeback in the market, which has prompted consumers to print physical copies of their treasured photographs. With its best instant photo printers, Kodak has dominated the market. Instant Cameras from Kodak, such as the Kodak Mini Shot 2 Retro and Kodak Mini Shot 3 Retro, can be used as both instant cameras and instant photo printers.
Kodak has three different photo printers available in different sizes - Kodak Mini 2 Retro prints photos in 2.1x3.4’’ ratio, Kodak 3 Mini Retro prints photos in 3x3’’ ratio, Kodak Dock Plus prints photos in 4x6’’ ratio. All three are bluetooth photo printers making them easy to access by the user. Three unique selling points of Kodak are:

Once you've printed all of the photos, you'll be confronted with fresh questions, such as what you'll do with them. Are you planning to showcase them? Where is the best place to have photos printed? Or are you giving them as a gift to your loved ones? Here are some unique ideas for displaying your printed photos:
Fairy Lights: Fairy lights bring a touch of charm to any room! Hanging your photos from fairy lights and hanging the lights on any wall in your room will instantly liven it up.
Do you happen to have an extra mason jar? Make a Memory Jar out of that leftover Mason jar. You can make your memory jar by putting photos in it and adding items that correspond with them. For example, to build a birthday memory jar, include photos of the night, along with gifts, tokens from the night. These memory jars can be displayed throughout the house.
Magnet your Memories
People collect fridge magnets from all of the places they visit and display them on their refrigerators as recollections of their travels. Now you print your favorite photos and put them along with the magnets on the refrigerator.
Heart on the Wall
One of the most popular and well-known ways to display your images is with a heart on the wall. Apply double-sided tape to the backs of all the images you chose/printed out, and then arrange them in a heart shape.
When it comes to presenting your memories, a wire wall grid is the finest blank canvas for anyone to work on. It provides your printed photos with a more orderly look and is a great way to embellish them.
Do you want to be more creative? Paint a tree on one of the plain walls in your home. Make sure the tree has branches and no leaves, and then use the photos you printed with your instant polaroid printer as leaves for the large tree. This is a creative way to fill wall space as well as an entertaining display to have in your living room.
Printed photographs are an excellent way to personalize your home. These are some entertaining and unique ways to display your printed photos. We hope this has given you some ideas for how to present your photos.
