Instant photo prints with a printer in your pocket

Jul 26, 2017

Sharing your memories and experiences on social media is great, but sometimes it’s even better to have something more tangible to remember a special day. With the HP Sprocket Photo Printer, available through Tarsus Distribution, people can take a smartphone-sized printer with them everywhere they go.

Sprocket is a portable, palm-sized printer capable of producing 2x3” stick-able snapshots from a mobile phone or tablet via Bluetooth in less than a minute. It’s like taking a snap with a retro instant camera, just with a better finish, no film and no need to shake the photo like a Polaroid picture.

The vivid prints are produced using ZINK Zero Ink Technology, which means they are smudge-proof, water resistant and can be shared immediately. HP ZINK Photo Paper delivers bright, glossy photos without ink or toner cartridges -- all the colour required for printing is embedded in the HP ZINK photo paper itself.

Peel off the backing, and the vibrant, tear-resistant photos become stickers to decorate bags, scrapbooks, journals, and walls. A free HP Sprocket App for iOS and Android lets users quickly customise and print smartphone and social media photos by adding frames, text, stickers, filters and more.

Says Magda Snyders, HP Consumer product manager at Tarsus Distribution: “This stylish miniature printer is sure to be a hit with teenage and millennial fun-seekers who want to make the most of every social occasion. It’s perfect for a snap-happy generation that loves to collect and curate every moment of their lives.”
