A template print I made


I have just received a new wireless HP printer (Hp Photosmart Premium All-in-One C309g) as a trial and have been exploring it's functions. This is a huge upgrade from my existing Canon Pixma; the prints are superb and it was so simple to set up even I could work it out! I can't see a difference between the prints done with the Hp Printer and professional photos.

It's been fun exploring the functionality. Being w
ireless means that I can take my laptop to another part of the house and still make prints. Or, using the touch screen I can make prints directly from a USB, a memory card or I can log into my Snapfish account.

I can also make different types of prints directly from the touch screen. These could be Album Pages, Panorama Prints, Wallet Photos, or Passport Ph
otos.

I have made a few 'template prints' from the W
indows software that is bundled with the printer. These are a great way to group holiday snaps or birthday photos together in an interesting way. The one above I made from the photos from our Phuket holiday earlier in the year (yes, a very photogenic place). It took about 5 minutes to put together and prints beautifully.

Even better, the people from Waggener Edstrom, the PR company I have been liaising with, made me a wonderful Singapore Kid's Places scrapbook, just to show me what the printer was capable of. They did a fab job (thanks Amelia!) and it is something I can keep forever as a little hard-copy piece of this blog.


Pages from the scrapbook made for me


Are you impressed? I certainly am. And I have an HP printer to give away FREE to one lucky reader! It is not the exact model I have been using, but the HP Photosmart Plus All-in-One with TouchSmart B209a, worth SG$269.00. These printers are superb for home use or small office, so make sure you enter! I have given you a couple of examples of what the printer can be used for, but there are many more capabilities.

too bad it's only for singapore residents, cos i could certainly do with a printer that could bring give the whole family many 'moons' of fun photo projects to make, and to keep...
i love your recommendations, and am using some of your ideas at home and at school with my classes.
yes, my kids and i love the singapore sciece museum, as well as the national museum. there are so many educational and kids friendly places in singapore. you are lucky. (we're not.)

Hi, I love HP printer. It's always my first choice. I used it to print photos, DIY books and other art and crafts for my son. Now I used it to print recipes for my cooking. Hope I will be able to upgrade mine with this new model.
