This review is from: 20 PCS Message Memo Pattern Films Sticker For FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 7s 25 50s (Electronics)
I'm a middle aged woman so feel a little silly getting too excited over girly sticker frames. That stated, if you're an Instax mini fanatic of any age, these are very well made and pretty darn fun. I'm sold!
The stickers peel off easily without being too fragile; I've yet to rip, crease, or ruin one! I'd love if they were a tad more removable after placement à la washi tape, but basically once they're on, they're on. If you don't press down too hard during your initial placement, it's technically possible to recenter them, but with a careless hand or for a young child, do know these fit the Instax mini photos exactly, with no room to spare. They border the entire photo, perfectly.
Though there's several varieties of sticker frames made by this same brand, these particular frames have a space at the bottom for a message/date/label...whatever you desire to write. (I've found that using markers made for writing directly on CD/DVDs work really well to write on the bottom white border space on an Instax. But with these stickers you can use most ordinary pens to write your message without a great fear of smudging.) If you DON'T want sticker frames that include the cutesy blank message field, don't order these because all 20 pieces have them.
You actually get a bonus sticker with every frame because the rectangle center part--the piece in the middle that you remove to reveal the frame--can be used to decorate something else. Kinda cool.
The online images of the patterns/colors are accurate. The stickers are not glossy. They're not totally flattest matte, but there's zero shine or glitter and have a paper-like finish you'd find in a business label.
If I recall correctly, the packaging does not include any English and is clearly not produced for the US market, but that's no biggie as these really don't require instructions!
I'd love to find these in less 'precious' and overly tween-centric designs, but they're very well made, stick beautifully without bubbling or creasing, and really add flair to your shots. They're priced right, too. In the price bloated world of anything resembling 'scrapbooking', I feel these are a great value vs cost and a superior alternative to purchasing the expensive pre-printed theme film from Fuji
Since one of the joys of instant photography is a giving away a pic that is truly unique, with no other copy on earth, jazzing it up with one of these message frames makes it just all the more special. Highly recommend for the young Instax crowd or the folks Instax keeps feeling young.
