A story of 3 printers

The other day I was asked about where I print my photos so I thought I would confess another one of my little secrets. I have not 1, not 2, but 3 printers in my office and I use them all when I scrapbook.

My everyday printer is a cheap HP 3840. This is my default printer it was under 50 bucks this is where I print just about anything, from coloring pages for Corinne to my journaling for my layouts. This printer gets a serious workout.


My main photo printer is an HP 7350 Photosmart. This is my oldest printer I bought it from Costco years ago. I can't remember when I bought it but I know I had it several years before we built our house so it's got to be pushing at least 10 years. I think I am going to cry when this thing decides to finally stop working. I will probably have a ceremony and bury it in my backyard. I credit the fact this printer still works to the fact that I only print photos on it nothing else.


I didn't go looking for my 3rd printer it kind of found me it's my wide format HP 9800. This printer totally changed the way I scrapbooked. It revolutionized how I looked at design and my journaling. There would be no more trimming 12x12 cardstock, re-taping and hiding seams. This printer is also great for printing over-sized photos.


I have no connection with HP I just had good luck with my first HP printer so I bought another one and then another one. And that is the story of my 3 printers.

Have a great day :)
