Quickly making a comeback is the trend of polaroid-type pictures that are able to be printed immediately after taking a photo. This was an ever popular trend back in the 60’s and 70’s that soon died off in the 80’s and 90’s. However, this time they are back with a modern twist. A startup company called Prynt recently released a phone case that allow you to insert your phone and take instant pictures, you can edit the pictures if you want or print immediately from the case.

Prynt is the world’s first phone case to be able to print photos right from the case itself. You are also able to print photos you have previously taken on your camera roll. One of the most impressive features Prynt has to offer is their app. Every time you take a photo, a short video will also be recorded at the same time. Then, using their app, you can hold your phone over the pictures and a video will play on your screen. This allows you to bring the photos to life with the touch of a button. The paper used in printing the photos doubles as a sticker if you peel off the back. It is also inkless, which means you do not have to worry about refilling the case with ink. The only requirement while using the case is that you will need to remember to charge it, especially when printing lots of photos because the battery will die after a few days of use.

As instant photos come back on the rise, Prynt has shown to be one step ahead in the technology used to bring photos to life. These cases are available in black, white, pink or blue and are compatible with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, iPhone 5 and 5s, and the Samsung Galaxy S5. There are also an arrange of accessories such as pouches to store your photos in or notebooks to stick your favorite photos.
