Previewing HP Instant Ink Ready Printers

By 9/17/2015 02:30:00 PM ,

From September all the way into the new year is a busy time for printing. From business contracts to holiday crafts and photos, there's LOTS of printing going on. This is not a good time to have my printer run out of ink in the middle of printing!

Note: I was invited as media to this event. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

If this has happened to you (it's happened to me!) then you'll be interested in HP Instant Ink replacement service. I recently spent some time with a HP Inkologist to learn more about this service, the technology behind HP Ink and HP printers are HP Instant Ink ready.

HP Instant Ink enables printers to track ink levels via the cloud and order Original HP ink before it runs out, offering customers the savings and convenience of having replacement ink cartridges and postage-paid recycling envelopes delivered to their doorstep (before you run out of ink!).

With three monthly plans to chose from, HP Instant Ink offers a plan to fit your various printing needs. Each plan is based on the number of pages printed, not the amount of ink used, so customers pay the same low monthly fee whether printing high-quality photos, black and white or color documents. In addition, there are no annual fees so customers can modify their plans at any time(2)

Considering that "a recent survey conducted by Harris Poll found 62 percent of those who intend to purchase a printer in the next year would be interested in an ink delivery service like HP Instant Ink.(3)", I think this is a great service!

Wondering what makes HP Ink different then other brands?

I learned lots and lots of research goes into getting the ink just right for printing needs. There's a whole lab dedicated to the technology of ink and how it works not only on paper but also the ink cartridges themselves.

After learning LOTS about HP ink, I moved on to learning about newest HP printers which are HP Instant Ink service enabled.
