Prynt: the first instant camera case for iPhone and Android

$1,576,011

Plug in your phone, take a picture, and get a photo in seconds!

Then watch your photos come to life on screen magically!

Prynt is compatible with iOS and Android phones including:

 

Forbes: “Prynt is perfect for those of us that want to quickly frame a photo shortly after taking them — without having to worry about ordering copies online or printing them at a retail store.” 

CNN: “The smartphone case that can print your selfies and cameras that fit just about anywhere was among the highlights from the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show.” 

NBC: “It's like Instagram, but in real life! This case turns your smartphone into a Polaroid-style camera that prints photos. Bonus: Those photos turn into augmented reality videos when viewed on the phone's screen” 

TechCrunch: “This is genius! It’s a Snapchat that you can hand off to someone and so much more.” 

Slash Gear: “Prynt Case: Using their app, one can see those printed pictures come alive, giving it the Harry Potter universe's living portrait feel.” 

Engadget: “So what is the Prynt Case? Only the greatest thing to happen to mobile photography since Instagram” 

  
         

Ever wanted to share a photo with a friend and not have to put it on the internet? Now you can, with Prynt: the first ever instant camera case for smartphones. Just plug in your iPhone or Android device, snap a photo or choose one from your favorite social network, and print it out in thirty seconds!

Prynt is portable, lightweight and fun! Snap and print photos anywhere, anytime. 

It's ideal for when you're out with your friends, sightseeing, or capturing a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Gifts and cards become more special when you include an instant photo. Take it with you on the go and never miss the chance to shoot and share some everyday magic.

We also designed Prynt to be modular so it can fit different types of phones. The part of the case that contains the dock can be easily changed based on the phone model. That means if you upgrade or change phones, you don't need a whole new Prynt Case, just order a new dock adapter from us and keep printing.

Lastly, we worked hard to design a beautiful object you'll love to carry. We think our black, white, pink and blue models are gorgeous and the matching (animal-friendly) leather grips are quite chic.

Plus, you'll never have to deal with ink or cartridges because we use a special paper with the ink embedded inside. Just load the paper and print away!

The case holds 10 sheets of paper, and refills will be available through our app. We'll include one pack of photos (10 sheets) with each Prynt Case reward on Kickstarter. Want more paper? For every $25 you add to your pledge, we'll send you 50 extra sheets.

Each print-out is more than a photo — it's a video! While you're posing for a photo, our app records a short video and stores it in the cloud. When you hold your phone over the printed image, our app will automatically scan and recognize it, showing your movie on screen in augmented reality. 

You can see the videos in your friends' photos, too! Print and pass your photos around for a creative new way to tell your story. It's like a secret message in every photo — embed any kind of surprise you can think of!

The Prynt app is under development and will be released this summer. Our goal is to carry the beauty and simplicity of the case onto the screen of your smartphone for a seamless experience.

In addition to taking a picture, you can select one from your camera roll, Facebook or Instagram. You'll also be able to enhance your photos with frames, filters and personalizations in the app.

To embed a video in a print, use the app to record your movie, then select the frame you want to print:

Order more paper through the app too, and we'll send it right to you! The app can monitor your paper usage and let you know when it's a good time to reorder so you'll never run out! Plus, your shipping and billing info will be stored so reorders are a breeze.

Want to see Prynt in 3D? Press play:

We were inspired by classic instant cameras and wanted to recreate the magical experience of sharing physical photos with our loved ones. We were also convinced we could enhance this experience by incorporating our smartphones, which are always with us and help us stay connected.

After developing the alpha prototype, we were the first French startup selected for Haxlr8r, a hardware accelerator program based in Shenzhen, China. We came away from the experience even more dedicated to our original vision of a modern instant camera that would be both portable and beautiful.

Then Prynt was asked to exhibit at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Over four days, we took hundreds of selfies, met lots of great people, and were even named by CNN as one of the four best products of CES! 

It seemed like the perfect time to come to Kickstarter to get the support needed to finally put Prynt in your pocket! We're so grateful for all your enthusiasm and would love for you to help us make Prynt a reality. 

 
And a big thank you to M&C SAATCHI Little Stories for helping us throughout the process of our Kickstarter campaign and also to our amazing video team,Vincent Vermandel and Little Big Man Production!

Risks and challenges

We are really excited about launching the first ever instant camera case for smartphones. However, the most important aspect of this project is that we fulfill our promise to you, our backers!

We put a lot of work into designing and building the first prototypes, but as a hardware project we are also aware that there will be challenges of manufacturing, production, shipping worldwide and more. Our promise is that we'll rise to meet all these challenges and more with the combined experience and passion our team brings to this project.

We've given a conservative estimate for our delivery dates. We are committed to keeping you informed of our progress both during and following our campaign. We assure you that we are all working very hard to produce a sensational product that not only arrives on time but is of optimum quality!

We are excited to get Prynt into the hands of you, our backers!

Thank you,
Team Prynt
