Describe your product in 3 words.
Incredible instant photos.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We started working on Prynt during our last semester of college, inspired by the idea of combining something tangible with something digital. Turning your smartphone into a Polaroid seemed just crazy and cool enough to work.
What makes your product special?
Prynt is the first photo-printing case for your phone, and it lets you share more than just an instant by saving a video inside of your Prynt photo. We designed Prynt in Paris with an emphasis on an authentic camera experience that’s integrates seamlessly with your phone.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Building a team and watching the people that have joined us develop. We are also really proud of the diversity in our team; because everyone brings a different point of view, we are able to be even more creative as a company.

This product is a little deceptive because it is not just a printer. I was hoping for a simple device that I could print pictures, and I feel like it was advertised as such, but this is not the case. It requires you to use their app. It stores the pictures that are printed on its cloud server, and it forces the user to either record a video or choose a gif with each picture printed. I value my privacy and it is just ridiculous that I need to go through this whole process just to print a picture. I will absolutely not use this unless there is an update in the app allowing just simple printing without storing (even temporarily) on their servers. I will go with a simple bluetooth printer instead. (I would return it if I could, but alas, I threw out the packaging. All I can do now is hope for a software update.)
Please do your research and know exactly what you are getting before purchasing this.
- (1) Prynt device (the adaptor is not included and is sold separately)
- (10) Prynt ZINK papers
- (1) USB charger
- (1) Simplified instruction manual with the website link for detailed instructions on the back.
Some of the features that make Prynt such an exceptional product are as follows:
- What caught my attention immediately was Prynt's design. Prynt incorporates a retro look and feel with the instant photos, while still maintaining its contemporary design by using ink-less printing and the fact that with a simple scan (through the Prynt app), the photos come to life through their videos.
- No batteries! The developers of Prynt got it right when they decided to make the case charge through a USB, rather than being battery operated. It makes charging much easier (and not having to constantly replace batteries is a HUGE plus!). The Prynt app comes in handy as it tells you the battery life of the device, so I like to open the app as soon as I connect my iPhone to make sure Prynt has enough battery to capture my endless photos!
- I love love love the fact that Prynt allows you to print photos already stored in your photo library! That's one of my favorite features because there are tons of photos I have saved on my iPhone that I wanted to print out and I was afraid I would not be able to, so when I saw that I could, I was beyond excited!
[Easy to use]
- Prynt is very user friendly and as easy to put together as it is to take apart. Because I have an iPhone 6, I had to connect the iPhone adaptor to fit the respective port. I pressed the white button on the side, securely clipped on the adaptor, released the white button to make sure the adaptor was securely in place, then I pressed the white button again to slide my iPhone in, and voila!! That's it! Set up took less than a minute.
- Once I had my iPhone attached, I opened the app, pressed the button to take a photo, and Prynt did the rest.
- This is probably the coolest feature and what makes Prynt so unique! The fact that it can scan a photo and show the video pertaining to that photo is quite impressive! I just started using my Prynt device and every single person I have showed it to is in awe at how cool/different this little device is!
- Once you press the button to take the picture using the Prynt app, it automatically takes the photo and continues to take the video along with it. No need to hold down the button or press it again for the video. The video can also be stopped by pressing the button twice.
**Some personal tips**
- When charging Prynt, I press the button on the top of the device to check the charging status. When it is red, it is still charging, when it turns green, it is fully charged.
- Download the app before connecting Prynt. Have the Prynt device already set up and ready to go and then just let the app do the rest! It walks you step by step on how to use Prynt, with visuals, making it a breeze to use!
- When detaching the adaptor, I press the white button on the side first to pop up the adaptor, then I use my nail to pop up the sides of the adaptor and then I pull the adaptor back and out and it comes out with no force! The first time I tried to take it off I had a hard time because I was just trying to pull the adaptor off rather than popping the sides first, so I felt that I was trying to force the adaptor off rather than letting it come off as it should.
Overall, I am very impressed with this product. The idea is very unique and revolutionary and an absolute worthwhile investment for photography lovers (for both newbies and professionals!), like myself!
I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. However, my thoughts are my own and are based on my personal experience with the product. I give every product the review it deserved, regardless of the discount.
I received a detailed email from the Prynt people and I am making an attempt to amend some items and re-explain others. The text in quotes is directly from the email I received. Underneath each section is my response.
“There seem to be some misunderstandings however in your review that I would like to clarify:
Prynt is not a social media site. You do need an app to use the Prynt Case, but that is true of most, if not all, photo printers that work with smartphones. From my own experience, I have used two printers, the Polaroid Zip and the LG Pocket, both of which use an app. Neither of these save your photos, but Prynt does. That is because of the video aspect. Videos are linked to a photo and for this reason need to be stored. Your Prynts are stored in our cloud, on a secure server. People do not have access to your photos or your account. The only way someone can see your prynts is: if you save the photo to your phone and send it to them or if you give them a physical copy of your photo.”
“I see on Amazon you stated that the fact that the company can access your photos make this seem social. I would disagree here, as we are not sharing your photos or using them. Prynt is closer to the way Apple has access to photos on iCloud or Google has access to images on GoogleDrive than to social media sites.”
MY RESPONSE: Okay, Prynt is not a social media site. But, I don’t want my photos stored in Prynt’s cloud. I don’t want Prynt employees seeing my personal photos or messages to others (per your wording above, “we are not sharing your photos or using them,” but you did not say you are not viewing them), which I’m sure the company does in order to find glitches and to keep improving the app (hopefully not as entertainment). I’m also not sure that when I delete the image from the app, it automatically and forever deletes from the Prynt cloud. I value my privacy.
“We're sorry to hear you're not enjoying the video feature! This is part of what makes Prynt special and sets us apart — Prynt photos contain a hidden message. I definitely understand that sometimes you just want a photo or want to print an existing image. When printing existing images, you can select a gif instead of a video and that speeds up the process. You can also set your video to private so that others are unable to view the video. Although it may not be the most ideal situation for what you want, you can also just record a video of whatever or point it at the wall — the video is not going to be visible unless you go into the app and scan it (or you give your photo to someone and they scan it, if you set it to public). I would definitely suggest that you try it out though or share it with friends/family; it can definitely create some cool things and people love the surprise of seeing photos come to life.”
MY RESPONSE: It’s not that I don’t enjoy the video feature. In some instances, I agree that video is a very cool thing. You send someone a pic, they scan it and get the secret message. This does make Prynt special. BUT, I want the OPTION to add a video when I want to send someone a surprise or secret message. Why must I be REQUIRED to record one every time? Why must I point it at the wall (seriously?) or select a gif? The simple solution would be to allow people to choose when they want a video and when they want a simple photo printed to give someone as a remembrance of something. I think the flexibility would make more people interested in having this. The other thing is that you can only print one photo at a time. So I printed a cool picture of me and the longtime BFF (of almost 40 years!) and I couldn’t print two copies at once – one for each of us. In order to print two copies, you have to go through the whole process twice (meaning I would have to film the wall twice and wait). Why can’t the app have a feature for printing more than one at a time? I think it’s wrong for Prynt to assume that people will not be annoyed by all of the wasted time incurred trying to print photos. We live in a world where people will find this process daunting and look for something that is more user-friendly, especially for $150 plus the cost of the paper. It’s not a good use of a person’s time nor of the app. These are valid complaints that are in the company’s best interests to consider. Here is an example. I was thinking of having a little get together and I thought it would be cool to take a funny picture and record a video message about it. I would include a physical printed photo in each invitation with instructions to download the Prynt app and to scan the image for the secret message. But in order for me to do this I would have had to re-record the message for each of the 20-25 invitations I was sending because I couldn’t record one party message and print 20 actual photos with the same exact message. What I’m getting at is that even if I record one video and then record “the wall” for the other 19, each photo is individually coded so even though the image is the same, only the first person will get the correct secret message and everyone else will get “the wall” coded into theirs. I guess this is not an issue if you are sending something electronically. I also thought about setting up a little photo booth type of thing at my niece’s upcoming 13th birthday party but it’s the same problem – say you have three kids in a photo, I take the photo and the kids record a goofy message with it but only one will print with the original message. You would have to print two more photos by recording the video again. The app should recognize images it has printed and ASK if you want to re-record or keep the same video. I think these are pretty reasonable observations, no?
“The Prynt Case should definitely not be dying after just a few photos. A fully charged Prynt should last for about 20 photos. Do you have the latest app and firmware updates on your case? Make sure you have the updated app from the app store and when you open the app with your case connected, you should be prompted to install a firmware update. This should fix the battery issues you are having; we had some bugs with this early on but we added a firmware update pretty soon after noticing so that fixed this.”
MY RESPONSE: My particular Prynt case does not hold a charge long and it does not light up in the green or red when it’s supposed to. I updated the app today and I’m still having the same issue with the charging process. Not sure why.
“Your adapter should not be stuck. It can be a little hard to remove when you first try, as it is different than most products. See the following link for a video containing instructions to remove the adapter: [sorry, couldn’t get the link to post]. We are always working on updating both the app and firmware, so if there are any changes in software or from Apple, we will be sure to make any updates accordingly to ensure everything continues to work smoothly.”
MY RESPONSE: I have watched the video and I am not inept with electronic products or mechanically. My adapter is indisputably stuck and will break if I try to remove it. I know the difference and I am fully capable (yes, even though I am female) of understanding mechanical concepts. This is not actually a problem for me because I don’t need to change the adapter. Which brings up the question – why would anyone need to take the adapter on and off? I have the iPhone 6 adapter and it works fine with the iPhone 5 and 6.
“Your photos should be saving to your camera roll. If they are not: go to "Account" on the app menu and adjust the option "Save to Camera Roll.” It sounds like you may not have the updated app version, so make sure to check that :)”
MY RESPONSE: Done, thanks. And yes, I do now have the updated app. There is also a folder in my albums list called Prynt.
It has taken me a long time to review this item because I am conflicted about how I feel about it. On the one hand, this produces beautiful paper images that look and feel amazing with vibrant colors and a nice finish (they're also stickers). On the other hand, in order to print one, you have to go through all kinds of hoops to actually get a print. All I really want to do is go to my camera, select an image and print it. That’s not what happens, however. This works through the Prynt app, which FORCES you to record a video message about the image (every image). It also gets saved to a social media site (but you can lock it from others seeing it), which I also hate. The biggest problem is that I feel like I don’t have options or control. My issues are with the process and not the quality of the device or the output. I want to print some images without a video and some with. But you have no choice in the matter.
Let me back up a bit, though, and talk about how this works. First, the device is pretty cool. It’s nicely crafted and build quality is good. You get the printer and an adapter for whatever phone you happen to have – I have an iPhone 6 and an iPhone 5. I have the iPhone 6 adapter but the 5 works in this too (but a 6 wouldn’t fit the 5 adapter) and that snaps to the front of the printer easily. Then you add the Prynt paper to the printer (I think it holds about 10 slices at a time) – very easy and then you have to charge it. The device holding a charge was the first problem I encountered. I charged it to full but it doesn’t really hold a charge very long. Even when plugged in, I sometimes don’t see the red charging light (turns green when charged but mine doesn’t turn green sometimes at all, not sure why, even when I press the button for charge status). You can print a few pics but then it needs a recharge. Maybe the phone is eating some of the juice when it’s attached to the printer – not sure. This printer requires no ink because the paper is treated to produce the colors. The paper and the colors are amazing.
Included in the well-designed packaging is the Prynt printer, an adapter based on whatever phone you have, a 10-pack of their ZINK paper (the size of business cards with a barcode sheet the device reads before printing), the charger/cable and a (very) basic instruction sheet (you really have no choice but to go to their website for proper set up instructions). I was surprised by how amazing the packaging and concept of this is but how lacking the instructions are and I also don’t like being forced to go to a website for instructions – I like to have something in front of me (old school style). Maybe having to go to the website helps the company increase their web traffic numbers, so I guess I can understand that.
The adapter is supposed to come off of the Prynt device but mine is stuck on one side, which is not really an issue for me since I don’t actually need to take it off. But it’s definitely and firmly stuck on the one side. I’m curious about Apple certification for use of the lightning pin, meaning I wonder if this will continue to work if Apple updates the software (although this may not be an issue since this is not actually an iPhone accessory in the normal sense). To situate your phone in the adapter, just squeeze the side and the adapter will expand so that you can attach your phone to the pin and then release and it will re-situate itself. Very simple operation. Do this in reverse to remove the phone from the adapter.
Moving on. So I was happy that I would be able to print photos already in my camera roll but, even if you print a picture from there, you are still FORCED to record a video in order to print it. I can’t emphasize enough how much that annoys me. Maybe I’m just in the wrong generation for this product’s marketing. And that video requirement adds extra time to the printing process – it’s just not a smooth process from selecting an image to printing. The video is actually kind of a cool idea – you take a photo, you record a secret video message so other people can scan your photo and get the secret message. It’s a fun idea, yes, but it should be optional so if you just want to use the device to print some quick wallet pics of your kids to give to the grandparents, you can. You also have to print each picture individually and go through the video process every time (I couldn’t figure out how to print more than one at a time.)
I think the concept, the device execution and the actual photos that print are excellent. They really are. The problems I have with this are frustrating and they are about controlling my personal information (images). I don’t want my images on a social media app. I don’t want to record a video for every picture I want to print. I don’t want to have to go through a song and a dance (literally) every time I want to print a picture and then have to go and delete them from the app so no one has them but me. I just want to take or select an image and print. And I would like the OPTION to have a secret video message behind an image for those times when I want to share one with someone. The process is just not user friendly. I have an aversion to being forced into doing anything (what can I tell you, I have an attitude problem, I guess). I also haven’t been able to get the images I take through the app to save to my camera roll but that could just be a user error because I can’t believe you can’t save to the camera roll (I’ll eventually figure it out).
At the end of the day, I still have mixed feelings about this. I want to say that the people behind this, however, are super nice and the customer service is very good. I’m thinking that this is still an evolving product and that some of these issues will eventually be ironed out. They seem like the kind of company that cares about their users. So no doubt, this will get better in the future.
I can recommend this for people who don’t mind the video feature. Otherwise, I remain neutral.
