How does it work?

    2. Send your photos via email to printsfrommyinstax@gmail.com. Make sure you follow our best practices when sending photos for optimal results.
    3. We print your photos, and you wait for your photos to arrive!

    What are the best practices for sending in my photos?

    • Mini polaroids: For best results, please send portrait-orientation photos with all the subjects as close to the middle of the photo as possible. Indicate in your email if there any you portrait/landscape format.
    • Make sure your photos are well-lit
    • Polaroid instax film photos are not made to come out sharp or lifelike in quality, but that's what creates the timeless, nostalgic look!

    How big are the polaroids?

    Mini polaroids: 8.6cm x 5.4cm or 3.4in x 2.1in
    Square polaroids: 8.6cm x 7.2cm or 3.4in x 2.8in

    Should I get mini polaroids, or square polaroids?

    It depends on your needs and preferences! Mini polaroids are more cost effective and are more portable, but square polaroids have better quality and capture more details. Check out our blog post about pros and cons!
