Instax Square Film Tips
I promised to share some Instax Square film tips with you to make sure you get the best value for money and of course great photos too! The key to this is purchasing your film from a reputable source and then storing it appropriately to prevent damage.
Instax Square Tip #1 – Fuji Instax instant film is sensitive to heat and light exposure so to ensure the highest quality photo’s you should always store your film in a cool, shaded location.
Instax Square Tip #2 – even though it has the highest cost per sheet of the Instax camera range, the Instax Square SQ10 has a unique cost-saving advantage which is that you can edit, trim and choose which photos you want to print whereas all the other Instax cameras print automatically every time you snap a photo even if it’s blurred, distorted etc.

In case you are curious how the price of Instax Square film compares with Instax Mini and Instax Wide film, I have crunched the numbers for you. In case you are not familiar, here is a size comparison of the 3 film options available from Instax depending on which camera model you have.

When the Instax Square camera launched the only option to buy film was in 10 sheets. Since this article was written in May 2017, the price for 10 sheets has dropped from around $17 to under $14 which is moving in the right direction but still pretty damn expensive and therefore buying at the best prices is critical to help reduce your printing costs.
The introduction of Instax Square film bulk options of 20, 40 and 100 sheets is a welcome one and as I have shown in this article the best value is the 40 sheets option which equates to a cost per photo of $1.32.
While the cost per photo for the Instax Square is more expensive than the Instax Mini and Instax Wide, the unique advantage that the SQ10 offers over other Instax cameras is that you can edit, trim and select the photos you want to print thereby saving cost by not printing poor quality shots, blurred photos etc.
As with most products today, there are a variety of places you can choose to purchase your Instax Square film in bulk from including your local shopping mall, retail stores and of course, online.
I would strongly recommend ordering from your Instax Square film bulk order from a reliable source because it is sensitive to light and heat exposure so you want to be sure that your instant film will be handled carefully once it’s shipped.
