I hate to admit, when client’s ask me about a guest book idea for their wedding, I have been saying the same thing for 4 years and I do hate sounding like a broken record. The Polaroid Guest Book. My favorite version is 12×12 black acid free sheets filled with gold or silver loving messages from their guest accompanied with a picture of how they looked at that moment. My favorite end product is storing them in a square archival box, unbound and loose for them to look at.

Yesterday, I went out and purchased the newest product from Polaroid. The Polaroid PoGo – Reinventing Instant Photography for the Digital Age™. It is a nifty little printer that prints out in about 1 minute. Sometimes a little more and sometimes less. You can send pictures from your phone (must be compatible) or your digital camera. When I heard about this, I just had to have it. It debuted at Best Buy on July 6th and you know I was there on the 7th. My kids and I love it. I have had a few photos in my palm centro that I wasn’t sure how I was going to get out of the phone and printed.

The great thing for wedding is that it comes with a sticky back and the size – 2″x 3″ borderless images. I can’t wait to use this for someones event, but just on a personal level, it has been fun. The cost per print is also less than a regular Polaroid. 33 cents per print vs. $1 per print. I have found the pictures from my centro come out better than my digital camera. Regardless, I love t his little thing… However I will recommend 8×11 sheets of archival paper for weddings as opposed to 12×12.
