HP Instant Ink for Teachers

Digital Learning, Tech Tips

Written by: Angie Olson

Teachers are constantly printing things for their classroom but the unfortunate thing about that is that if you print from home, it can get expensive.  The good news is that it doesn’t have to be expensive.  Let me tell you about the HP Instant Ink program and why it is perfect for teachers like yourself.

What is HP Instant Ink?

HP Instant Ink is a program that you sign up for, pay a monthly fee, and the company sends you ink as you need it.  No more ordering ink because you run out.  No more spending the amount of money that you may be used to spending!  The plans are based on the number of pages you print and you can choose the plan that best fits your printing needs.  If you don’t use all the pages allotted to you for the month, the pages rollover to the next month.

What are the different plans?

HP Instant Ink offers four different plans.  The great news is that there is no annual fee and no penalty for cancelling…but trust me, you won’t want to cancel once you realize how amazing this program is to have!  I just mention this because there’s no pressure to try it out.

Do I need a special printer?

Here is a list of eligible printers that qualify for the HP Instant Ink program.  This list is current as of December of 2017.  I have the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 Series and LOVE IT!  It prints 24 pages per minute, prints double sided, holds 250 pages of paper at a time, prints from my phone, wireless, and has a scanner and fax!

    Does the printer you have print well on card stock?

    • Angie Olson

      Hi Dede!

      I typically print on regular paper and then laminate my cards and things, so I can’t answer this question fully for you. I have great success with the regular paper but cannot comment on card stock at this time. Thank you for reaching out!

    Is this offer available in Australia?

    • Angie Olson

      I’m not sure about this. I would suggest that you reach out to their customer service on their website or via telephone.
