Celebrate Moments with your Instax Photo Wall Clock

Memory is transformative. It has an enigmatic power of bringing people to other places and times. Pull a string – and you’re in your grandma’s kitchen, biting that very first tender crust of her plum pie, catching sun rays jumping on the table. Pull one more – here’s your toddler with its very first self-made all-in-one breakfast, smiling at a complete mess left behind. The first touch of a loved one’s hand, that special trip you went to with your dad… Each moment is so precious, so why not celebrate it?

With INSTAX, it’s easy! Let us show you how to transform an ordinary wall clock into a personal time machine with your favourite INSTAX photos.

You’ll need:

  • a plain clock without numbers or a DIY clock kit (you can easily find these at a craft store or online);
  • a cardboard or a foam board (optional);
  • a level (optional);
  • a nail or an anchor;
  • pencil;
  • a coloured carton / paper / any other material that can be used to cut numbers or as decorations;
  • a double-sided tape or glue;
  • your favourite INSTAX photos;
  • an INSTAX camera for new shots.

Step 1

Decide where you would like to place a plain clock and hang it. Make sure you inserted a battery (if required) and set the time.

You can also collect a DIY clock kit yourself. It typically includes the clock mechanism, clock hands, and a mounting hook.

How to attach the clock?

First, identify the mounting point on the back of your clock. It may be, for example, a keyhole or a hook. Using a level, make sure the clock is straight, and then mark the spot on the wall with a pencil. Use a nail or an anchor to hang the clock, aligning with your marking. After that, you can adjust the height if necessary.

Step 2

Shape numbers 3, 6, 9, 12 with various items and take their photos with your INSTAX. They will help you better navigate the clock.

Step 3

Select 8 personal INSTAX photos you want to use instead of other numbers and decide on the arrangement. You can choose a pattern, a creative layout or any design you prefer.

Step 4

Use a double-sided tape or glue to attach the photos around the clock. Make sure they fit around the clock hands without obstructing them.

If you’d like, you can also use a cardboard or a foam board as a backdrop for photos. Just cut it into a shape that matches the design you have in mind for your clock. Then you can add decorative elements like stickers and markers to make it unique.

Step 5

Now you can step back and travel to your cherished memories whenever you check the time!

TPO-free Fujifilm inks at Labelexpo 2023

To make a change, it’s not enough to keep up with the time, you must race against it – and look further. On 11-14 September, Fujifilm shows a new definition of printing quality presenting its UV inkjet technology for label and package printing at Labelexpo 2023 in Brussels.

As pioneers in UV inks, we’ve made a breakthrough by using TPO photoinitiators to achieve the best printing results. Due to the recent regulatory change in Europe, we re-thought the approach and now we are the first to introduce our innovative TPO-free ink solution.

It allows our original equipment manufacturers benefit from lower heat output and gives them an opportunity to avoid SVHC substances in their products. What’s important, new formulations ensure the same extraordinary speed, quality and high performance as traditional TPO-containing inks while fully complying to the latest sustainability regulations.

“Born in a Diamond Mine”: essay for the future

A 25-year-old Dutch photographer Isa de Jong presents her on-going photo project ‘Born in a Diamond Mine’ at Encontros da Imagem in Braga on September 15-18.

Using photography, drawings and notes, she portraits the face of Gen Z – with its personal and in-depth stories, dreams and fears planted in times of a crisis, environmental disasters, and global technological change. She aims to create a time capsule bottling the honest and vulnerable truth told by her contemporaries about their vision of the future. Through collaborative portraits, she offers a unique glimpse into their anxieties and uncertainties while also uncovering the shared experiences and lessons they’ve learned during the project.

Isa’s talent have been recognized by FOTODOK, which has selected her as one of the participants in the FOTODOK TALENT EMBASSY program. Thanks to the Pictoright Fund’s support, Isa and nine other emerging photographers got the opportunity to develop their skills and show their work at international photography festivals.

During a pop-up presentation at Palácio do Raio, she will display selection of portraits and handwritten notes beautifully printed and sponsored by Fujifilm Original Photographic Paper. We are happy to help with the preparations and support the project.

The works will be on display from September 15 to September 18 at Palácio do Raio, Braga. Save the date!
