HP Sprocket: Prints Photos Directly From Your Smartphone


The HP Sprocket pocket is a palm-sized, portable photo printer that prints 2×3” sticky-back photos directly from your smartphone via Bluetooth. Sized to be  smaller than a smartphone, the  Sprocket is capable of printing individual photos that can be shared with friends and printed at get-togethers rather than just shared on social media.

The printer, available in white with rose gold accents and black with silver accents colors is equipped with a 10-pack of HP ZINK photo paper (20 sheets per pack), that packs magical power within each paper-thin design.

The paper requires no cartridges to print, but rather have all the various colors required embedded into the paper itself. This allows the HP Sprocket pocket photo printer to operate without the need for a physical cartridge and thus making the smartphone peripheral inherently more portable.

Aside the free HP Sprocket app for iOS and Android , the printer allow users to customize and print smartphone and social media photos by adding frames, text, stickers, filters and more. The printed snaps are vibrant, smudge-proof, water-resistant and tear-resistant( trust  Owanmbe Junkies to love this ). Users can peel off the backing and the photos can become stickers to decorate bags, scrapbooks, journals and walls.
