The Kodak Mini 3 Retro pocket photo printer produces good-looking 3-by-3-inch images quickly and inexpensively. It’s a great smartphone partner if you can live without 4-by-6-inch prints.

MSRP $156.99

    • Fine photo quality in 3-inch square print format
    • Prints both borderless and bordered photos
    • Comes with enough consumables for 68 photos
    • Bluetooth only; no Wi-Fi connectivity
    • Android or iOS only; no Windows or macOS support

Kodak’s Mini 3 Retro Portable Printer ($156.99) is a snapshot photo printer that prints on 3-by-3-inch square media, as opposed to the 2-by-3.4-inch paper of the Kodak Mini 2 HD Instant Photo Printer reviewed here in April 2018. Like the HP Sprocket Studio, the Kodak printers use dye-sublimation (commonly called dye-sub) imaging technology, instead of inkjet or the zero-ink (Zink) process of other Sprocket and competitive models. Dye-sub printers and their four-pass imaging process usually produce photos superior to those of their Zink rivals, and its handsome output and low running costs render the Mini 3 Retro an excellent take-it-anywhere photo printer and our latest Editors’ Choice award winner in the category.
