Polaroid Fotobar is Perfect for Florida Fans (Giveaway)!

Polaroid Fotobar LogoBeing the scrapbooker and photo/memory keeper that I am, I’ve been excited for awhile to try out a new store that is tailored to Instagram and photo lovers…Polaroid Fotobar! One of my New Year’s resolution is to not let my beautiful photos stay on my phone. I want to see them each day, and smile. Fotobar is definitely going to help me with that!

I was finally able to get to the Orlando store before Christmas and try out this awesome new concept store. I was even more excited when I saw that many of their products are the perfect shade of ORANGE and BLUE!

Polaroid Fotobar stores are a one-of-a-kind, fun, new retail concept that invites customers to turn their favorite photos into an extensive selection of custom and unique photo products from a variety of materials including canvas, metal, bamboo and more.

The store also offers the ability to instantly print your picture in the Classic Polaroid format complete with white border in five different sizes. More than ever, we are a photo-obsessed society, and it can be difficult and time-consuming to print photos. Polaroid Fotobar provides an easy way to print all those photos from your phone as well as from your social media accounts.

The Orlando Fotobar’s customer service was wonderful as well. I’m pretty tech savvy so I just needed to be pointed in the right direction, and I was on my way, but the staff are there to help everyone from product selections to using the photo upload software.

With five new stores around Florida as well as a great website, Polaroid Fotobar is a fun, convenient way to print your fave pics and savor those memories. Gift cards are presented in a beautiful holder that not only holds the gift card, but doubles as a frame for your recipient to use. AND, they have Birthday Party options for children as well.

Creating a photo display is easy at Fotobar!

Creating a photo display is easy at Fotobar!

Step 1: Come ready with your smart phone, Instagram, Facebook or other photo account logins.
The in-store computers are easy to use to access your photos. Even if you don’t need frames etc., Fotobar can print your photos using an HD printing process to print directly onto ultra thick, non-bendable, silky mat board. The photos are sturdy and come in sizes from Small ($1 each) to XXL (up to $40 each) to create the highest quality Polaroid Picture.

Step 2: Inspiration abounds throughout the store!

Step 2: Peruse the store for ideas.
I was enthralled just thinking of the potential here! From shadowboxes and frames to unique clothesline displays and canvases, I wanted to create my own gallery!

Step 3: The software was easy to navigate and I could see a preview of my images inside the frames.

Step 3: Pull up a seat.
I created a Fotobar account, then logged into my Instagram account. There, I selected the photos I wanted to print. I could then add a caption to the photos (like you used to do on Polaroids), and select products to go along with my photos. Fotobar offers numerous filters to help enhance your photos, or, since I had used filters already on Instagram, I just skipped over that part. Again, super easy.

Blue Shadowbox and prints

A perfect blue shadowbox for a Gator photo. This single size comes in multiple colors including orange and blue. I printed extra images so I can swap out images in the shadowboxes.

The Shadowboxes work with a magnet system. I just love this size! They have a larger option as well. Also available in orange and blue!"

Step 4: Checkout
After I submitted my photos, I went to checkout. I paid for my images and was told it would be about 45 minutes to print my images (it takes time to print of course), allowing me time to get more of my holiday shopping done. They also sent me an email notification when my images were ready.

Just attach the provided adhesive magnet, and your photo is all set for display! Additional magnets are available so you can easily have replacement images on hand to change out your frames.

Checkout my finished products! I bought a Shadowbox Size 1 & 2, extra prints for only $1 each, and an orange stand (view below under Orange and Blue ideas). These were some of my hubby Jesse’s Christmas gifts and he loves them. Plus Lily loves looking at the photos as well!

I know I’ll be returning to Polaroid Fotobar to print my Gator Gameday photos to fill these! Visit Polaroid Fotobar’s website for additional sizes and products.
