Make Your Adventures Last with the FujiFilm Instax Square Share SP-3!
The Revolutionary FujiFilm Instax Square Share SP-3!
If you know me, you know that I love to travel. That goes hand in hand with enjoying each destination with my family and capturing the special moments. While we are left with incredible memories, we are also left with thousands of pictures that just sit on our devices. However, that has all changed since I got my hands on the FujiFilm Instax Square Share printer.
If you are like me, you have no desire to sit down and go through all your photos on your phone or tablet. Let alone try to organize them to order prints through an online service. Once you do that, you have to head to a store to make prints. Well, I don’t have time for that either!
After all, we all have a busy life that we are capturing in photos, and the proof is in those pictures! If you can print pictures to use right away at home, why wouldn’t you? Plus, the creative things you can make and gift with the help of the FujiFilm Instax Square Share printer is endless. Read on to see how you can make your adventures last beyond your adventures!
Make it Instant!
When I saw that Fuji was coming out with the FujiFilm Instax Square Share SP-3, I knew that I had to have it! I mean, who would turn down the opportunity to own a printer that they can use anywhere? Not me!
It is portable, lightweight, and wireless, so I can use it at home or when I am traveling. It is small enough to pack with the rest of my gear. Plus, the FujiFilm Instax Square Share SP-3 allows me to print real, square photos from my phone or tablet whenever I want. I can even print photos from my social media feeds from Instagram and Facebook. With a teen at home, she has lots of pictures that she wants to print out too, so it’s a godsend!
I set up my new printer in minutes. I basically slid the FujiFilm Instax Square Instant Film inside, added the battery and then plugged the printer in to make sure that it was completely charged. While it was doing its thing, I downloaded the Instax Share app onto my devices. This is a necessary feature that you will all need because this is what you will be using to print the actual pictures.
Once everything was ready, I turned the printer on. Then I connected to it through WiFi and clicked on my new app and chose print from the gallery. After I clicked on the picture, I was given choices to edit, filter, and change it to black and white. I lightened my image and simply clicked okay and my picture printed immediately.
So easy, and no waiting for pictures to arrive in the mail or driving to pick them up!
As I explored the app in a little more depth, I was amazed to see that I could also take a picture and print it immediately or share photos on my social networks. I could also create a collage starting from two to nine different photos or add a color text to a photo before printing.
The best feature though, in my opinion, is the #tag print mode where you can search and print from the same hashtag. If you have your own hashtag that you filter your images in, it makes it easier to have them all in one spot to choose from. That is how I would use it!
Put Them Down on Paper.
We just came back from Florida and we visited Disney World, went on a Disney Cruise and hit up Universal Studios. It was a busy but, incredible vacation. You can bet that I took tons of pictures to capture all the fun we had. Another thing you may know about me is that I love to journal. I thought, why not put them both together?
I just started my newest bucket list journal and one of my bucket list wishes was to snorkel at Disney’s Castaway Cay. Let’s just say, check! I printed off one of the pictures from Castaway Cay and taped it into my bucket list before I started writing! It definitely makes my journal come to life.
Display Those Memories!
Now that I have the power of printing in the palm of my hands, I want to display them. So I got creative! I always give the girls a little spending money when we travel so I figured, I’d have Mimi save a few coins to contribute. She has been asking for a coin bank, so a light bulb went off.
I hit up the dollar store to pick up a coin bank, paper flowers, tape, and cardstock paper. I found a super cute travel themed coin bank that said ‘Road Trip Fund’ and decided that I’d personalize one for Mimi to save for our next road trip or vacation.
It was super simple and with a little creativity, the FujiFilm Instax Square Share SP-3 printer and a hot glue gun, it was personalized. We taped pink cardstock onto the back of the coin bank to cover up the picture it came with.
With a fine tip marker, Darasak drew a travel-inspired design onto the cardstock. He also added one of my favourite quotes, “Not all those who wander are lost’ and I even have it on my bookmark. You can get creative as you’d like with it.
Afterward, I taped a square picture that I had printed with my Instax onto it. I hot glued the flowers on and ta-da! What I loved about it was that with the use of tape, we can interchange the picture anytime.
You can pick up your own printer to create your designs and display the memories you capture. It is available at Annex Photo Concept by FUJIFILM, Best Buy, Indigo and Henry’s for $249.99.
I know I am going to continue to love using my FujiFilm Instax Square Share SP-3. I have a Fuji FinePix XP 120 camera that I use and can connect to my printer too. So, I am going to give it a try because I travel with it all the time.
If you love taking pictures but aren’t a fan of spending hours ordering prints, you will want to get your hands on this printer. I know that you will love it just as much as I do!
How often do you print pictures?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!

What an interesting product! I come from the era way back when, when the instant cameras were all the rage. But this is way better.
Yes, it is so awesome.
I’m so glad cameras like these are making a comeback! I’ve always thought they were so much fun! I’ll have to snag one of these.
It does look like a camera but, it is a printer.
This is so fun! I would love it and my daughter would too! One thing I miss about today’s tech is printed photos! Sure we have them on computer but it’s fun to get creative with printed photos too and the fact they are instant – just love it!
Yes, I completely agree!
I’ve been wanting to get one of these for my kids. It takes me back to my childhood when we had a polaroid.

What a great device. I love instax printers. I have the smaller one and use it all the time. I would love this bigger one too
I love that it is square!
I rarely print out photos. They stay tucked away in my phone, on instagram, or facebook. I would love to be able to print a few photos occassionally.

Same! That is why I love it.
Just like the good old days! I wonder if I would catch myself waving it back and forth trying to get it to develop faster?!!
OMG, totally guilty of this.
When digital photography was fairly new my husband would print out our good pictures and we have albums of great shots. Now we don’t print anymore so this is a great way to save all those memories.
