It’s that time of year where everything just gets a little too much. I’m pretty sure this past week has gone in a flash and because everything has been pretty hectic at the moment with work and everything in between I’ve run out of time to blog! So right now it’s 11pm on a Monday night and I’ve finally been able to put a post together (yes!)
You may remember a couple of months ago I did some work with HP about their new deskjet printer (here) and I was delighted when an email popped in my inbox to work with them again. If you know me or if you’ve read my blog for a long time you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE photos. I have them in my purse, on my bedroom walls, in frames, pretty much everywhere you could display a photo and one of my favourite photos I’ve had made into a phone cover!
The HP Sprocket is a mini photo printer, which prints out your photos instantly over Bluetooth, and it’s literally like having Polaroid snaps on the go! It’s so compact you won’t even notice it in your handbag! You can also edit the photos through the sprocket app (which is available for free on Android & IOS) which allows you to add borders, change filters, customise your photos with text and even add stickers too. What’s even cooler about these prints is you can peel off the back and your photos can be used as stickers too!
As you can see from the photos above, I’ve used the sprocket app to add stickers and text to a photo before sending it to print!
I think this is a great way to print out your memories instantly and I can’t wait to take mine to London with me next weekend when I go away for a Christmassy get away with my boyfriend! Despite having a Christmas trip away planned, I couldn’t wait to test out this printer and so I printed some of my favourite photos of the year with it and added borders and stickers to the photos using the sprocket app.
I’ll be using this on my weekend away and around Christmas time when I’m spending time with my family and it’s great to have those instant memories. This printer reminds me a little bit of my Polaroid camera but its more controlled as you can edit the photo before it prints.
I think this printer would make a great gift for any photography lover this Christmas or just a treat for yourself if you love taking photos! It costs only £99 and it comes in back and silver too. If you’re into making memories the ‘old fashioned’ way and not just posting on Instagram, then this is the Christmas present for you.
