You can store thousands of photos on your phone, but there's still something precious and intimate about having your memories printed out. You can choose to stick them on your wall or corkboard, keep them at the back of your phone or wallet, or even attach them to a handwritten letter you plan to give to someone special. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of 7 portable photo printers you may want to consider for your next purchase.

The Kodak Mini 2 Retro Photo Printer has a yesteryear style that will surely bring you nostalgic memories. Its technology, however, is far from outdated as it prints photos via Bluetooth from your phone using the Kodak Printer Mini app. The app allows you to edit your photos before printing, having various stickers, frames, and text options. It also lets you choose whether you would like your photo to have borders or not.

The device prints 2.1 inches x 3.4 inches, with all photos being solar-resistant, water-resistant, and fingerprint-resistant. Suppose you’re looking for a Kodak printer that can accommodate a bigger photo size. In that case, we recommend that you look at the Mini 3 Retro, which prints 3” x 3” photos. Other Kodak portable printers come with a built-in camera, namely the Mini Shot 2 Retro and Mini Shot 3 Retro.
