Selphy Unboxing

Crafts, ReviewsGabriela SimsComment

So I got a Selphy (thank you husband!) and made sure to do an unboxing of it, it comes with everything you need to make 5 photos instantly.  If you have AirPrint, you can also use it with you Macbook or iMac.  It's a small, lightweight, portable printer that will allow you to print photos directly from you smart phone, or a usb stick or sd card.  Needless to say, that's really cool, my only question was how good would the photos be?  It turns out that they are amazing, but you have to either take the photo with your phone or have the full size file on your removable media.  I'm pointing that out because I printed a few initial test prints from Facebook and they didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, but I tried the same photos again with the original file and they looked great.  I made the video below to show that you could be up and running out of the box in less that 20 minutes (including unboxing and reading the instructions).  As you'll see my biggest struggle was figuring out how to insert the paper cartridge, :) but everything was very easy and now I present the video.

Also, I noticed that the ink and paper packs come bundled together so you always have the right amount of each and you don't have to worry about running out of one before the other.  

On my next post I'll be doing a review of my latest crafting dream item...The Cinch! I am super excited about it and I can't wait to use it.
