“In today’s world, photos of special moments tend to stay in our social media feed. At Canon, we want to challenge that by encouraging spontaneity through the Canon Mini Photo Printer’s ultra-compact nature. Sharing print photos with friends and family can now be immediate,” said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. 

“Testament to Canon’s promise to provide innovative products for different lifestyle needs, the Canon Mini Photo Printer reinvigorates the power of print by bringing these memories to life with the ease of a click.” 

The Canon Mini Photo printer uses ZINK Zero Ink technology, a dry-printing technology that enables printing in colour without the use of ink cartridges. The glossy photo prints are smudge-proof and scratch-resistant, with a peel-and-stick reverse side that adheres easily to just about any smooth surface. 

Designed with a built-in battery, the Canon Mini Photo Printer will print up to 20 photos when fully charged. Printing photos from a smartphone can be done through Bluetooth pairing, activated with a button located at the side of the Canon Mini Photo Printer. 

Through the Canon Mini Print app*, brimming with photo-editing tools, creative filters, photo frames, creative stamps, and text boxes, users can add a personal touch to snapshots. There are also options such as augmented reality (AR), face distortion and image doodling right before printing. Users can either snap a photo through the in-app camera or retrieve the photos from online platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, and Dropbox.

Beyond the 2” x 3” print, there are options to create collage prints of up to four images, and also a tile print feature which splits a single image into four or nine prints to create a personalised jigsaw puzzle.


The Canon Mini Photo Printer has a white lid and baseplates that come in a choice of Rose Gold, Mint Green and Slate Grey**. It is now available at all Canon authorised dealers. 

With every purchase of the Canon Mini Photo Printer in Singapore, users will be entitled to a promotional bundle of Tokidoki premiums, which includes a special edition Tokidoki pouch, lanyard, charm and printer body stickers.
