Like it a lot

I wanted instant prints for a photo journal. Today everything is on line, in social media & photo albums are all but gone. On the other hand grandma's photo albums or mom's scrap books are bulky. To me Photo journaling maybe a good compromise. Hp Sprocket is great for that purpose. Small, easily fits into a purse. Now as far as quality of the prints: I want to preface by saying that I am yet to take a digital pic that did not need to be tweaked or edited for one reason or another. In reading Sprocket reviews other owners stated that prints are somewhat matted, reds lean towards brow and whites have a slight tint. That is accurate. Knowing what to expect, I use photo editors (the one provided by Sprocket or any other I may prefer) to routinely "brighten" and boost up colors of the images I plan to print on Sprocket . The resulting images do not have the vibrancy you would see in your smartphone, but they have that soft quality that fits with journaling.
The setup was easy. It works off your Bluetooth. Manual not included in the box but easily Googled on line. Photo paper is easy to load: it is stacked correctly in the packet with glossy side up and blue configuration card on the bottom. Printer cover slides off, paper is loaded, cover replaced and long press on the side button gets printer started. Remember to bind phone and printer via Bluetooth and to turn on bluetooth on your phone each time you are printing. When reviewing an item its important to know what it does how it does it and if it fits with what you need it for. In isolated cases you would see negative reviews because of mechanical issues, but a lot of times review is negative because the item's specifications from the start did not fit in with the purpose someone got it for. If you expect Sprocket to produce studio quality prints-you would be disappointed. If you are looking for small prints that illustrate a story of where you've been and what you've done, selfies etc- Sprocket is vey nice for that purpose.

FUN, PORTABLE PRINTER
Posted by: Carolina from: on
Absolutely love the HP SPROCKET. My first portable printer that I bought just for fun and it is awesome. You have to download an app on your phone to print out pictures but you are able to link instagram, facebook, flickr and photos from your camera roll to print out. You can also edit pictures from the app; plenty of filters to choose from, borders, ability to crop and add text!

Love this Printer!!!
Posted by: LivingaFitandFullLife from: on
The Hp Sprocket Photo Printer is so much fun! We used it to take silly photos at my daughters birthday and were able to print the photos out for guests directly from my phone. Guests were amazed and loved their photos of the kids. The Hp Sprocket Photo Printer is incredibly easy to use and took only a few minutes to set up. I love that it's the size of my phone and allows me to print photos whenever I want!

Great for Memory Keeping
Posted by: townsendhouse from: on
As a mom, I am in charge of memory keeping for my family. Unfortunately, sitting down to make a beautiful scrapbook never seemed to work for me. With three children now, I know that I want to record the memories that we have as often as possible. Enter the HP Sprocket. I absolutely love how I can easily print pictures on this cute little printer to put in my Erin Condren planner as a memory keeper.
I take a lot of pictures of my kids, but almost always they are on my iPhone. Having an easy way to print those out whenever I want has been an absolute dream! I love the color, and the ability to print two pictures on one page. I can then cut them in half and they fit perfectly in my planner, which is now my memory keeper for my three children.
I especially love that there is no separate ink to buy, this makes it incredibly convenient and portable. It is easy to bring with us to family events so that everyone can get involved in the fun! One of my favorite things, that I hope to do more of as we have more events, is to bring the printer with me to family events. We then set up a little "photo booth" with props, and I can print the pics off for family to keep and bring home to commemorate the time we spent together. Awesome product!

Nice little printer for pictures taken by I phone
Posted by: Webby from: on
This little gadget prints great pictures from my kids I phones. It is like having a Kodak instant camera with the ability to edit photos via software and apps before printing. Very compact and easy to use even the youngest member of the family has been able to utilize it. No special training is needed. Great addition to a family that takes lots of photos.

Really fun gadget at an excellent price!
Posted by: MinnesotaMomof3 from: on
I received the HP Sprocket the day before an event I was hosting so I brought my Sprocket to the event. I had such a great time taking photos, editing them and printing them for myself and the other guests. This is a really fun, small tech tool. It actually was slim enough to fit in my back pocket!

Excellent product. Take tons of pictures and never got around to printing them. Can now do so with ease. Perfect size photos for the children's project my Sunday school class did this Christmas.

We have had so much fun with this little printer! If you have someone on your Christmas list who loves the latest and greatest tech gifts, definitely check this one out. This photo printer is the same size as an iPhone (the normal one, not the Plus), prints wirelessly, doesn't need ink (it's somehow magically already in the paper), and the photo paper comes with a back you can remove so your photos turn into stickers! The app is really easy to use - I'll be printing some of our favorite Disney photos to use as gift tags in the coming weeks!
