How long do Polaroid pictures last?

Approximately 100 years in dark storage. Allow your Polaroids to dry for several weeks before putting them in albums, cartons, or other containers. Avoid direct sunlight. Store them in archival cardboard or other archival-rated materials in the dark.

Do Polaroids still fade?

Polaroids, like regular printed photographs, can fade or get damaged over time. Fortunately, there are some easy treatments that may be used to slow down the ageing process and prevent them from fading. For example, keeping them in an ablum or somewhere where sunlight will not harm them.

How long do Instax prints last?

Instax films use organic dyes that last roughly as long as traditional chemical colour prints. They will endure for decades if stored in a dark, dry, cold spot, such as a picture book, or somewhere away from direct sunlight.

Why is Polaroid photography not popular nowadays?

Polaroid photography is more costly than conventional digital photography. Fujifilm Instax cameras, such as the Instax 11, are also less expensive, with film costing £0.75 – £1 each photo compared to polaroid, which costs more than £2 per shot.
