I’m kind of obsessed with the polaroid guest book, but with FH being a photog, he thinks it’s so silly to buy film at the price you’d have to now due to the film no longer being made. I know, it will be made again…next year though.
So we thought about using the PoGo instead…smaller and doesn’t have the retro vibe to it…but it’s got potential I think.
Has anyone else used it? How’d it work for you?

I’ve been wanting one too! I hope other people reply with their experiences.

ready2bmrsd – have you thought about whether you’d do the printer or camera? I believe the printer can be used with any camera through a usb, and may be able to handle more paper than the camera. Don’t quote me on this, still have some investigation to do.

My sister used her PoGo for my bridal shower!
She made me and every guest take a picture together- and at the end of the bridal shower- my maids presented me with a cookbook. Each page had the guest’s favorite recipe, a picture of me and the guest, and a note from the guest to Mr. Blush & I.
It was a wonderful wonderful idea and my sister LOVES her PoGO. Two amazing things about PoGo is 1) you never have to buy ink! and 2)you don’t have to hook up any wires (Although you do have the option.)
If I were to have any qualms with the PoGo it would have to be it’s speed. The pictures do not come out very fast – certainly not as fast as a polaroid. I’m not sure how many guests you have, but for a guestbook it might create unwanted traffic.
You could always get a couple PoGo’s but that would be pricey-
If you have any other questions let me know!
Hope this helps

I was going to go this route also. I’m still debating it- the camera, not the printer. My ultimate goal is to make my guestbook apart of my picture book that I’m doing with MyPublisher. At first it seemed like regular polaroids were the best option because you could just take a picture of yourself, write a note on it, and put it in the box, but now I think that during the cocktail hour I will go and take individual pictures of everyone and have them write notes on slips of paper and put it on a corkboard instead. Ah, decisions decisons. Either way, I’m buying a PoGo. From what I’ve seen on Youtube, the quality of the photo’s aren’t super awesome so you may want to consider that

I always thought that setting up a traditional printer would be too much hassle, so I never considered it. My SIL has already offered to manage the guest book, so I think setting her up with my little point and shoot and a usb would make it fairly user friendly.
It didn’t even occur to me that it would take more time for the pictures to develop. Thanks, Blush for the insight! I hope that if people take pictures and sign the book in order, it will be easy to match the couple with the message by the end of the evening.

I’ve never heard of a PoGo but it sounds like so much fun!
