WhatsApp Instant Print
Other than using our smartphone for communication purposes, the fact is, most of us use our smartphone as a camera as well. Just visit any event, and you will be sure to see people taking our their smartphones to capture photos and happenings. Instead of keeping all these photos as soft copies on one’s smartphone, with our WhatsApp Instant Print service, your guests can now have these photos printed out instantly. All they have to do, is WhatsApp the photo they haven taken to us. Our automated WhatsApp Instant Print system will then automatically embed the photo with your event’s custom design printout template and get it printed out instantly.
This service is particularly ideal if you wish to have an instant print service for an event whereby your guests are not that Instagram savy (ie, our Live Instagram Printing service will not be suitable) but you would still wish for them to take photos using their own smartphones and getting these photos printed out.

How Does Our WhatsApp Instant Print Works
Take a photo using your smartphone.
WhatsApp the photo to us. Do note that you do not have to manually add our number into your smartphone contact list before you can WhatsApp us. We will display our QR code around, and all you have to do is use your smartphone to scan this QR code. After which, you will be re-directed to WhatsApp and a conservation between you and us will appear.
Photos will be processed and will then automatically appear on our printing portal. Proceed to our printing portal to select the photo that you wish to print.
Selected photo will be embedded on the event’s custom design printout template, and get printed out instantly
Our WhatsApp Instant Print Package
Below shows 3 sample printouts from our past events in Singapore. In the first printout (a wedding printout design with the words “Enjoy Every Moment”), the photo that was WhatsApp to us is in landscape format. As such it is resized accordingly to fit into the white frame (color can be decided by you) that is in the printout design.
In the second printout (the one branded with Citroen branding), the photo that was WhatsApp to us is in a square proportion. Thus, no resizing needs to be done. It can directly fit into the square frame that is on the printout design.
In the last printout (the one with Bvlgari branding), the photo that was WhatsApp to us is in portrait format. As a result, it has to be resized accordingly to fit into the orange frame (color can be decided by you) that is in the printout design.
- Unlimited printouts
- Choose 1 printout size out of the available 4 options (see next tab)
- Fully customised printout design (with Instantly.sg branding) 1
- Note that the photo that is being WhatsApp-ed to us will be put into a square frame that is on the printout design. This is because, different smartphones capture photos in different aspect ratio, resolution and orientation. Thus, we need to have a way to ensure that all photos that are being sent to us can fit into the final printout design nicely without destroying its original aspect ratio and orientation. Please see photos on left/top for better understanding.
