more pogo

I thought you might like to see some of the fun things I've been doing with my pogo printer
(see this post)



I discovered that you can manipulate the prints  to get different effects ...

Try

soaking in water (for about 20 minutes):


and blast with heat (like an embossing tool or blow drier):


or try sanding the photo paper
before printing:

you can also sand it again after printing:


or do all of it ... like in the lower right hand picture here

someone had assumed that it only prints in black and white
(because of my earlier examples)
but you can print whatever is on your digital camera 
- whether it's black and white, color, cropped or doodled -

(hey - I ought a get money from polaroid for pushing their product - but that's not gonna happen to this 99%er)

Looks like you are having fun with your new gadget. I had a portable printer but once hubby bought the wrong cartridge and I didn't realize it until I tried to force it in. Kinda think I messed something up as now it won't print properly. :/ This Polaroid sounds great because you don't have to worry about toner replacements. Love how you are always trying something new. Have a fabulous Friday. Tammy

Hi Kimmie, these are really great results - I absolutely love the scratched effect on the dog photo. You are obviously having great fun with these. Thank you for your visit. penny x

You seriously should send them an email and ask...why not? But, what do you mean by "this 99%er"?

Steph said...

I didn't run out and buy one after reading your first post about the Pogo - nope, I didn't make it that far. I jumped over and bought one on ebay before I finished reading your whole post. I've been running to the mailbox every day like a kid waiting for a letter from Santa Claus. :)~

so yes - Polaroid should definitely be giving you a cut of their profits. lol
