Phone to Polaroid using 100% real instant film chemistry

80 years of Polaroid film innovation now just a few taps away. The Polaroid Lab uses a 3-lens system to project the screen image from your phone, exposing it onto Polaroid film. A unique chemical process then develops the image into a Polaroid picture. No printing, no scanning, just an instant formula for timeless images.

From the cloud to the fridge, turn pixels into proof.

Cloud storage and digital photos are your ‘memories’ worst enemy! You end up taking thousands of images that you never end up looking at. Photos safe in the cloud, maybe. But not tangible memories and reminders of the good times on your fridge or at the grandparents proud display.

The Polaroid Photo Lab Instant Film Printer is easy to use and comes readily assembled.

Don’t just take pictures, make them.

From something on a screen to tangible thing, the Polaroid Lab transforms the digital photos from your phone into real Polaroid pictures – in an instant. Never lose a moment again.

Take now, make later.

Go where a Polaroid camera has never gone before with the Polaroid Lab. You can also create collages of up to 9 frames or bring your stills to life with our new augmented reality tool. From digital to analog. And back.

How to use the Photo Lab to print instant Polaroids from smartphones:

  1. Open the film first, and unwrap the cartridge.
  2. The film goes in an opening in the bottom of the Lab.
  3. Use the black button to raise the pedestal and power on the Photo Lab.
  4. Next, in the Polaroid app, access your camera roll and choose a photo.
  5. Then, choose your sizing.
  6. You’ll be prompted to choose what film type you have.
  7. Place your phone screen down on the scanner.
  8. Press the red button to print when the light next to it blinks after lining up the phone.
  9. Remove the photo and let it develop for 15min.


Dedicated Polaroid Originals app

Working in conjunction with the Polaroid Lab is the dedicated Polaroid Originals app, which will format your mobile photos for printing on the lab as well as enable some more creative options for your prints.

A Collage mode lets you split up your digital file in up to nine different frames, which can then be seamlessly printed onto multiple sheets of film for a unique look. Additionally, reaping the benefits of the digital capture, an Augmented Reality tool lets you assign video playback to recognized still images for dynamic multimedia playback. Compiled through the app, this tool layers still images with motion, which can be seen when viewing a finished print using the camera of select smartphones.


Polaroid Photo Lab | Classic Design with Retro Looks

The Polaroid Lab’s industrial design eschews basic black and angled edges for a design that rounds out the sides and is mostly finished in white plastic. The rainbow Polaroid logo is prominent on the front. The pedestal, which houses the optics, is black to minimize internal reflections.
