It's compact, fun to use, and doesn't rely on inkjet printing. This is why the CP1300 is our No. 1 choice for the best photo printer of 2017. Picking up the optional battery pack will ensure the unit will be able to print out memories, taking full advantage of its portable size and wireless connectivity. There are also some fun little features that really add to the overall experience.

It has the ability to print on postcard-size paper, not to mention label sizes, square and even eight small stickers at a time. That opens up a number of possibilities when you snap a stunning photo or a keepsake memory. There's even a 3.2-inch touchscreen for managing everything easily.

For a mobile world, Canon has worked on the official app solution that makes it effortless to print something from a smartphone running Android or iOS. If smartphone photography isn't quite your thing, card slots and USB ports let you hook up a camera. Overall, it's a great little unit that won't destroy your bank balance.

Conclusion

All-in-one printers and scanners are common, but there are some real gems out there depending on your requirements. Should you wish to take advantage of more accurate dye transfer, we'd direct you to the Canon Selphy CP1300, which will produce top quality photo prints.
