      @tlow Thanks a lot for supporting Instaprint. The funding for this project was unsuccessful, so your pledge was never actually charged and the rewards were never distributed. Instaprint is available as a rental service for events, if you're interested please check out more info at

      I never got my insta-print. Could someone reach out to me?

    3. Adam Willis on April 29, 2012

      The problem was it would cost $400 to get a tiny printer with ink that is probably expensive to replace. Make me a printer that I could buy for $100 and I'd have one in each room of my house and every bar would have one too. I was thinking Polaroid i-Zone when I first saw this project but of course using instagram and an iPhone.

      I loved the project:
      Very technical, very well designed. Beautifull.

      Maybe the only pitfall is that your goal was much too high (500K$): it discouraged many people.
      Do it again but with a pledge of 150 000 .
      This is what I would do.

      Thanks for this project.

    5. Marcus Frasier on April 29, 2012

      Welp... they sort of asked for it...

    6. lastSKYsamurai on April 27, 2012

      Same here. I'd like at least one more update to let us know what they plan to do now, now that the project didn't reach it's goal.

      I am curious as well if there will be any special orders. Please let us know as I would be very interested.

      Sad that this won't get the full funding. I pledged the Pro pack to hoping to add something new to my business. Any chance to get this made special order?

      Damn....kind of a drag to see this might not happen

    10. DJ Paine on April 23, 2012

      only 5 days to go. so sad this is not going to happen... what do we do now Breakfast?

    11. the lovely lo on April 23, 2012

      I think that it is effin' ridiculous that this project isn't backed yet. I don't even own the shop I work at and I pledged for one! I mean, as much as people use Instagram... really?! Someone call Mr. Zuckerberg and tell him to fund everything!!! GEEZ!!!

    12. Aldo Valadez on April 22, 2012

      I'm amazed that the Instaprint team did not rally for their kickstarter campaign. no updates sorry two, and almost no support. I guess they did not want Instaprint to happen. too bad and Sad...Best Wishes. @Rafael Pebble is rockin it.

    13. Rafael Rodrigues Colombo on April 22, 2012

      6 days to go and $288000+ missing! I will use my money for Pebble!

    14. lastSKYsamurai on April 22, 2012

      Nothings impossible. Projects generally spike near the beginning & right at the end, don't give up guys! We can do this : D

      All we have to do is commit this week to our week of Instaprint! Social Media, Photography Blogs, friends who know friends who know friends, who know that certain someone who preferably works at Facebook, haha. Print some Posters out about Instaprint & put them around town!

      Maybe ask your Mums & Dads that you want them to donate to the Instarprint kickstarter as your years Birthday/Christmas Present. Drive it People!

      9 days to go and still 300.000 missing, looks like this isn´t going to happen...

      GREAT Video, showcasing sleek design, smart engineering, charming characters + filling a market need.

      I have been fortunate enough to be capable of getting the home kit. Wish I could give more because this is truly awesome. Wish you guys the best of luck.

    18. Steven Verhoest on April 13, 2012

      Does anybody knows somebody that works at Facebook?

    19. Steven Verhoest on April 12, 2012

      I just upped my pledge to have 2 home kits. My sister lives in India and I would like to give her an instaprint. I would place the other with my parents. This way we they can print images to each other. But we need it to get funded first. Hope that Facebook funds all the rest of the amount. What's a mere 500K if you spend 1billion. I want my instaprints to.

    20. lastSKYsamurai on April 12, 2012

      Hope everyone is spreading the word, Put some posters up around your town/City, Play the backer Video to all your Insta buddies, Hack a national News channel & stream the video, something! Over 5000 likes for this project & only 765 pledges, Get moving people! I want my Instaprint.

      The acquisition of Instagram by Facebook leaves many unanswered questions that may derail this project. It would be a shame to get one of these printers only to have Facebook change, or end Instagram and render this product useless?

      I would like to hear from the project team regarding the ability to update the software after release (i.e. if Instagram goes away, could this printer pull images from Twitter?).

      This uncertainty has given me pause to reconsider my pledge. It would be a shame if this hardware became obsolete before it was even released. the lack of interaction by the project team is worrisome

    22. Rafael Rodrigues Colombo on April 9, 2012

      I've just tweeted, at @iRafaelColombo: "Now that Mark Zuckerberg acquired INSTAGRAM, it's time to support INSTAPRINT at KICKSTARTER.". I hope the next 20 days may be better for this project.

      That would be fantastic news!

    25. Carleton Torpin on April 8, 2012

      Those wondering why the team is not updating their project page should be aware that this project is likely going to be produced regardless of their funding on Kickstarter; hence the perceived apathy. It wouldn't be that difficult for a company like this (with a nearly ready-to-go product) to find an outside investor or two and begin commercial production. They likely expected a larger influx of backers initially and now they've just relegated their Kickstarter project to the back burner. I could be wrong but they don't seem too keen on jumping on this comment to correct me... :(

    26. SEXCoffee on April 7, 2012

      This product seems like it would be awesome! And a great device to have on tour so that fans can print photos at shows!

      Matt on April 6, 2012

      I just reduced my pledge from $399 to $1. Love the idea but I can't see how the team is ever going to produce the product if they can't provide their backers with an update.

    28. Missing avatar

      Harry on April 4, 2012

      I certainly don't want anyone to pull their pledge. I just wanted the team to really generate some buzz. Its a great product. I'm a backer. I want more backers so they make their goal. I want them to really try their best to make the goal happen.

    29. oxoboxo on April 4, 2012

      I'm really hoping now that Instagram has landed for us Android users, more buzz for this will be created and this thing actually happens!

    30. Aaron Miller on April 3, 2012

      I agree with Harry. I'm pulling my pledge. It's a great concept, but the team doesn't seem like they're really invested in making this happen. They're certainly not active with this community. It makes me wonder how they'd be with follow through if it were funded.

      Just went straight for the Home Kit and promoted it on ma blog - hope that helps to get the much needed money to make this product a reality

      Harry on April 3, 2012

      Great job? If I was trying to raise money, I'd be on this comment area constantly. They have not responded to anyone in weeks in this comments section. I see no form of promotion taking place to get the word out. What an awesome concept and product. It's a shame that nothing is done to promote it by the team. Very strange.

    33. lastSKYsamurai on April 2, 2012

      It's a shame really. I wonder how many potential backers were lost when they thought the home kit didn't have wi-fi! Shurly Kickstarter will allow you to fix this mistake!!!???

      Also please add Hipstermatic & PicFrame support : D

      Other then that, great job guys!!! If I didn't live on a small Island with 1800 other people mostly farmers I'd spread the word about this (other then with facebook) & spread posters & notes all around Melbourne City!!! So I encourage everyone else who can to do so!!! Let's help Breakfast get their goal.

    34. Robin Durden on March 29, 2012

      crossing fingers although it looks grim. you guys need to get some more attention!

    35. Wylie Fisher on March 28, 2012

      Is it possible to reprint a photo that has already been printed by Instaprint?

      1. When I receive an instaprint, can I be "self-suffient"? Meaning.. will there be any other ongoing charges per picture or per upload to the servers? (I'm not talking about the cost of buying paper).

      I want to buy the machine. But my paper. And use it without having to have to pay any other ongoing fees in order to use it.

      (I hope my post makes sense).

      I am really looking forward to seeing this project get funded. On the off chance that it does not get funded is there any way for you to produce some kits?

      We need some backers here!

    42. J.L. Branham on March 21, 2012

      Quick question, if this doesn't get funded will we still possibly see this come to fruition in the future? I'm worried that I won't get to use this great product in the future.

    43. Alex Camacho on March 19, 2012

      This thing is awesome so i really hope you reach your goal.

    44. Romy Kraus on March 17, 2012

      Good luck guys. Absolutely loving it.

    45. Aaron Miller on March 16, 2012

      As it says in the FAQ, "Absolutely." The home kit includes wifi.

    46. Missing avatar

      Becca Nichols on March 16, 2012

      The home kit IS wifi, right?? Definitely want/need it to be WIFI! I'll be using it for jobs, despite not wanting an entire "Small Event Kit."

    47. Shannon Yazurlo on March 12, 2012

      Best of luck and enjoy SXSW!

    48. BREAKFAST Creator on March 12, 2012

      Hey all. Thanks for all the great comments. For those looking for more answers we've updated the FAQ section at the bottom of the project page. If you still have more questions feel free to send us a message directly. They make it a bit tricky to answer them here. Thanks!

    49. Joshua Scott Koskinen on March 10, 2012

      for all asking.....the home kit DOES have a wifi module. At the bottom of the kickstarter page they answer that question.
