HP Sprocket Photo Printer: The Perfect Smartphone Companion for the Holidays

Technology and social media have given us the opportunity to capture memories and connect with our friends in new, more immediate ways. However it has also sped up the way we enjoy those connections and memories, giving them an intangible quality. Instead of printing photos to share with friends and family, many of us allow them to get buried in our social media feeds and camera rolls. While running out to your local photo center to print every photo might not be a practical solution, pairing a portable printer with your smartphone’s camera might just do the trick.


Whether you’d like to have a little fun with friends and family this holiday season, or simply give the photographer in your family the perfect gift this Christmas, a portable photo printer might be the right solution.


HP Sprocket


The HP Sprocket is a handy, slim printer that is small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. Using Bluetooth technology and a companion app, it connects with your smartphone, enabling you to print 2-inch by 3-inch photos instantly. What’s really cool though is that, using the app, you can edit your photos before you print them. You can add captions, borders, and stickers to liven up your photos.


The printer takes special HP Sprocket Photo Paper and prints using ZINK Zero Ink Printing Technology, so you won’t ever have to worry about replacing the ink or toner. The photos it prints are both water and tear resistant, making them virtually indestructible. It’s also rechargeable via Micro USB so you’re not relying on batteries.


The HP Sprocket is the perfect holiday gift for anyone who loves to snap photos with their smartphone and share them with friends and family, giving them the opportunity to do so in real life, not just online. Teenagers will have the most fun with this little device, snapping photos and decorating lockers or notebooks with photos of their favourite friends and memories.


HP Sprocket Photo Printer 2-in-1


While the Sprocket is a fantastic little gadget, the HP Sprocket Photo Printer 2-in-1 brings things to a new level. Like the Sprocket, the Sprocket 2-in-1 allows you to print photos from your smartphone via Bluetooth and the companion app but it also has a built in instant camera so you can snap pictures right from the device. It also allows you to save the photos you snap right to a microSD card.


Similar to the HP Sprocket, this device is rechargeable via Micro USB so you’ll never have to worry about batteries.


The HP Sprocket Photo Printer 2-in-1 makes a great gift for anyone who enjoys snapping photos with their smartphone but it’s also great for users who enjoy a little freedom from their phone. Thanks to its built in camera, this device allows you to get away from your phone while still being able to snap and print photos.
