Bringing back the fun in printing photos

Millennials today are experience junkies. From short out of town breathers to weekend adventures, exploring new heights and highs has become this generation’s way of living their lives to the fullest. 

With the younger generation’s “fear of missing out” (FOMO) attitude where everything just has to be caught on camera for everyone to see, a lot of social media gimmicks in the form of Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter are rapidly emerging today. But beyond the likes, comments, and shares, these moments can be much more valuable once made into real, tangible keepsakes that can last for generations.

To make these memories stand out, HP Inc. introduces the Sprocket, its newest, smallest, and hippest lifestyle printer yet. No matter what the occasion is, users can instantly snap and print by simply connecting the pocket-sized device to any smartphone via Bluetooth and the accompanying app.

Revive your best moments

Aside from printing photos, this device also lets the users show their personality through well-curated images, made possible by the HP Sprocket app. Compatible with both Android (v4.4 and later) and iOS (iOS v8.0 and later) smartphones, it is downloadable for free in the Google and App store. It also supports a variety of formats including BMP, GIF, and JPEG, as well as TIFF for iOS devices which means any photo can be printed out with ease, whether grabbed online or taken straight from a phone camera. 

HP makes printing photos cool again with Sprocket that prints high quality pictures in just 40 seconds

In just 40 seconds, users can get ahold of vibrant, high quality photos with the use of the HP ZINK® technology (zero ink) 2 x 3” photo papers that are smudge-proof and water and tear-resistant1. The photo papers also come with a peel-and-stick back, perfect for crafting personalized items, gifts, or souvenirs. 

Reinvent the now

“We at HP aim to encourage our users to reinvent the way they capture their experiences. Millennials today belong to a snap-happy generation, where they can document their entire lives in just a click of a button. Through the Sprocket, we want them to hold onto those memories in the most convenient, mobile and personal way,” says Pallasena Viswanath, HP Inc. Philippines Managing Director.

The Sprocket, which comes in black and white, is now available in the Philippines through Lazada and may be purchased directly at
