What’s in the box?

When I first saw the Phomemo M02S, I was instantly charmed by its adorable design. Shaped like an elegant envelope, it’s compact, lightweight, and exudes a nostalgic vibe that makes it perfect for any aesthetic.

How to set up the thermal pocket printer?

Once the mini printer was charged up, I couldn't wait to start printing. The setup process is super simple – just download the app “Phomemo” on your smartphone, connect it to your printer via Bluetooth, and you’re good to go. The app is user-friendly, with a plethora of free templates, fonts, and graphics to choose from. Whether you’re tech-savvy or a newbie, you’ll find it easy to navigate and create beautiful prints.

The key features of the thermal pocket printer

  • Eco-Friendly and Low Maintenance: One of the best things about the Phomemo M02S is its eco-friendly design. Unlike traditional printers, it uses thermal printing technology, which means no ink or toner is required. This not only saves money but also reduces waste. The thermal paper rolls are easy to replace and come in various styles – from standard white to colorful and patterned options.

  • Portability: The size of the Phomemo M02S is only 3.3”x3.3”x1.6”. The compact size and lightweight design make it incredibly portable. Whether you’re traveling, attending a workshop, or simply moving from room to room, you can easily take it with you. The  built-in 1000mAh rechargeable battery ensures that you can print on the go without worrying about finding a power source.

  • High-quality printing: The Phomemo M02S pocket printer has a printing resolution of up to 300DPI, and you can intuitively feel the clear picture every time you output a picture, which is really rare for a pocket printer. Because the thermal printer uses the print head to heat the printed sheet and prints by thermal reaction, the thermal printer is black and white, so it can only print black and white pictures. Generally, the lighter color pictures print better.

  • Versatility: Phomemo M02S supports thermal labels that can print in three sizes: approximately 0.6 inches, 1 inch, and 2.1 inches. The 2.1-inch size is more suitable for printing photos, study notes, and similar items. The other sizes are suitable for printing small labels, such as name labels.
