Technology has made photography so much more accessible, but physical photographs have a certain charm that digital photos just don’t have. There’s just something about being able to put your most precious memories on display — whether at your desk, in a scrapbook, framed on the wall, or even just in your wallet. But going to a physical store to get our pics printed is such a hassle that most of us don’t print as much as we’d like. That’s where a mini portable printer can come in. These handy gadgets let you print photos from your phone whenever, wherever. Best part? There’s one for every budget!
