Finished your Christmas shopping already? Well, aren’t you lucky! For the rest of us still scrambling, we’ve got about a week of last-minute shopping left, so even if your gift isn’t quite there yet, why not make it look like you put a little more thought towards your present than you actually have? How, you ask? With HP’s Sprocket Photo Printer. For the Christmas keeners, it will add a lil something extra to your present. For Team Procrastinators, it’ll look like you tried.
Simply download the Sprocket app, connect to your phone via Bluetooth and print out a cute, sentimental photo. Since the printer requires no ink, you’ll never have to mess around with replacements. Just load it up with HP Sprocket paper (20 2″ x 3″ sheets cost $10) and you’re good to go. The device can even pull photos from your social media. And not only that, you can add frames, words and stickers to the pictures (and yep, there are plenty of holiday ones to choose from — even a ‘to and from’ tag). Not satisfied with the 2D world? Scan your pic through the Augmented Reality function and see it come to life.
Sure, you’re not going to get HD quality prints with the Sprocket, but for something quick, easy and fun, this lil’ printer gets the job done real well. Like if you’re kinda unsure about that candle you bought your cousin? Print out a fun photo of them, decorate it all festive, and stick it on the wrapping paper. It’s the thought that counts, right? And no can deny these labels took some thought.
