The Polaroid Snap is a new take on the company’s iconic instant photo printing technology. Instead of the easily recognizable square photos with the big white border, the Snap uses a landscape layout with 2-by-3 inch photos, which you can also save to a microSD card if you’d rather not print them out right away. It’s a neat new camera for a whole new generation of young photographers, and we’ve compiled some of the best Polaroid Snap accessories to help take your experience to the next level.
The paper you’ll need
Polaroid ZINK Photo Paper
Until 3D printers are small enough to attach to today’s best instant cameras, you’ll still need some paper if you want to print out your photos. You need Polaroid Premium ZINK Paper for your Snap. This bundle includes 50 sheets of 2″x3″ paper to get you started. You can also pick up packs of 20 sheets if you tend not to print much.
Store all the memories

Instant printing with your Polaroid Snap is incredible, but sometimes you want to share your photos online. For that, you’ll need a memory card.
