Scrapbooking Made Easy with ZINKhAppy Wireless Printer
I’m excited to share with you that I have partnered with ZINK Imaging to give you a peek at the wonderful and creative things that this handy dandy little machine has to offer. We have been playing with our ZINK hAppy printer for a few months now and I have to say, our entire family is in love with all of it’s capabilities!
In case you are not familiar with ZINK Wireless Printers, then let me fill you in. These little printers are amazing! You can find them on Amazon here, and let me tell you: GREAT gift idea!! Affordably priced, and there are so many fun uses for these compact little printers.
Wireless printing from your phone!
They work by printing wirelessly right from your phone and get this, the don’t use any ink! You just purchase zRolls (printer paper) and insert them into the unit and then use the ZINK hAppy app to create graphics and print them out! The zRolls come in a variety of sizes and they have sticker backing so these work perfectly for scrapbooking, label making, etc.
One of our favorite things to do with our ZINK hAppy printer is scrapbooking. My daughter has been working on this fun K&Company Smashfolio Scrapbook (available on Amazon here and amazingly awesome for kids!)
How it works
You download the ZINK hAppy app to your smartphone and then use the app to create your graphics. Seriously, so easy. As you can see, this printer unit is not much bigger than a phone, so it is really easy to move as needed, and really easy to work with. It has very few buttons so if you are tech-challenged like myself, it’s still very easy to use!
So easy, that my 9 year old is using it to create her summer scrapbook. Here’s how she is doing that:
As you can see, it’s quite a simple set up. Since I take most of our photos on my phone, we went through together and selected the ones that she wanted to print. The ZINK printer has a really cool feature that allows you to swipe your finger across the groove on top to cut the printer paper off, and my daughter loves being the one to “cut” the photos off.
Since the ZINK printer paper has sticker adhesive on the back, she was able to peel it off and stick them in her book. I have to add, I am very impressed with both the quality of this paper and the actual “stick”.
After we got all of her photos printed, she literally sets up her art area and works for hours on these projects.
As soon as she finishes a project, she can’t wait to start the next. I love to feed her creativity so this ZINK printer is perfect because it’s easy to use and I love the wonderful memory books that she is making. She has even inspired me to start printing out memories and sticking them in my journals. It really is a very simple way to store those precious memories.
These examples are just a few of the reasons that I think ZINK printers make awesome gifts. I’ll be sharing more ideas and features in the coming months, so be on the lookout for those.
The folks at ZINK hAppy also provide quite a bit of awesome ideas on their website and you’ll also want to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for more product announcements and inspiration as well!
