Portable printers for smartphones have become a household essential in 2023. They’re the easiest way to transfer the hundreds of pictures taking up space on your phone, to display around your home.  There’s nothing quite like having physical pictures, is there?

And according to shoppers, the Canon SELPHY Photo Printers are some of the best – just ask John Lewis shoppers, who rate them both as “excellent” in their reviews. And the best part? They're on sale right now - shop shop shop!

Canon SELPHY Square Qx10 Mobile Photo Printer is cable-free (which pleases our aesthetics) and portable, and allows you to print and share your smartphone snaps quickly, saving you the hassle of printing them all online and waiting for them to arrive in the post, or paying to have them printed in a photo shop. 

It’s small size means it won’t take up an enormous amount of room, either, and it prints 68 x 68mm photos, the perfect size for plenty of small photo frames. You can even print them as stickers, and with a thicker writing edge to personalise your pictures too.

The reviews of the Canon SELPHY are brilliant, and make a case for your household needing one of these handy pieces of tech.

Scoring an impressive 4.1/5 rating on John Lewis, the reviews speak for themselves. “Lovely photo printer, good size and good quality of photo prints, it's a sticker too so you can stick it into a photo album or hang the photos on a wall. Very easy to print photos from your phone or any mobile device. Definitely recommended!” remarked one happy shopper.

Another said they “love this”. “It's really simple to connect to your phone and print moments off. Nothing like having the physical tangible thing sometimes and the quality is really good - the best I think in the market. Go buy. You won't be disappointed.”

Others dubbed it “excellent” and another said they’d gifted it to two friends, it’s that good.

This printer hooks up to your smartphone or device wirelessly, with links through Wi-Fi, Apple Airprint and the Canon PRINT app, to allow the user to print when they’re out and about. 

With use of SELPHY Photo Layout app, it is a fast, easy way to create and print beautiful, customised photos, stickers and bookmarks direct from your phone. Choose from a wide range of layouts and finishes. There’s even a Party Shuffle mode to connect multiple smart devices for mixed collages of pics from your friends – fun!

Customers rate it for how its “easy to set up” and “top quality photo printing”.

“Initially this stood out from other "portable" printers, by the fact it can print 6*4 post card sized photos,” one shopper wrote. “The machine does this with remarkable ease, very quickly and produces a far better than anticipated high quality photo.

“It's absolutely fantastic! Worth every single penny and I'd highly recommend it.”
