Polaroid Opens Stores That Only Print Photos From Mobile Devices
Fotobars are expected to pop up across the U.S. and allow consumers to edit images at work stations.
Polaroid is embracing digital photography with plans to open several Fotobars across the U.S. These stores will allow customers to print their photos from their mobile phones or social networks into prints, canvases, and merchandise.
Originally, Fotobar opened as an online-only service in October. Users were able to select photos from their phones, or photo-sharing services like Instagram, Facebook, and Picasa. Using the online software, users are then able to easily edit the photo using various tools and apply different filters. Once they’re happy with the end-result, they can can then choose to save, share, or print the photos.
