This convenient, portable printer makes it easy to instantly print and share photos at parties, special events or family gatherings.”
The Epson PictureMate Show also offers a large 270 MB internal memory to automatically store hundreds of photos, run slideshows and reprint images any time.

Here’s an interesting technology only from Epson: The PictureMate Show can deliver durable, smudge, scratch, and water resistant photos that resist fading up to 96 years under glass and over 200 years in dark album storage – up to four times longer than traditional, film processed photos. You can also print custom sizes from 0.3” x 0.3” to 4” x 6”, great for passport photos, filling unusual frame sizes, photo key chains and photo bracelets. The “Show” offers versatility with various layouts and color effects, such as classic borders or borderless options, mini-wallet, wallet, and 4”x 6”, as well as black and white, sepia, or color
