Print from the web and mobile devices—PC free5
Create the crucial connection between your business and your documents. HP ePrint technology lets you print at your convenience using any internet-capable printing device. HP ePrint technology liberates printing from your home or office by allowing you to print content while traveling or simply out and about from your mobile phone, laptop, mobile device or any other email enabled device.
Because larger documents, presentations, and PDF files can be difficult to read on small, handheld device screens, you can print documents from your mobile device to read or take with you.
Easily print on the go using one of two methods:
1. Download the app (ePrint) from your provider and you're ready to print. Use your mobile device to locate the printing device closest to you. Then simply send your documents to a web-connected printing device and pick up the pages.
2. Attach your document to an email message. Forward that message to a web‑connected printing device from your email-capable device and collect your printed document.
For further protection, HP offers you the option to place your printer in "protected" mode. This mode lets you limit access to your web-connected printer by creating a "preferred sender" list of the email addresses of family members, friends, business associates, or others that you allow to send email to your printer. Only email messages indicating they are sent from a preferred sender will be sent to your printer.
You can place your printer in protected mode and specify who is allowed to print to your printer by visiting www.hpeprintcenter.com and registering your printer. You also have the option to disable the ePrint service at any time.
To get started with ePrint, you simply need to press the Wireless button on the front panel of your HP web-connected printer, and select the Web Services menu. From here, you can turn the ePrint service on or off, view your printer‟s email address on the front-panel display, and print an information page (some updates may be required to enable certain functionality). For more detail, please see the Setup Guide included with your printer.
Produce professional-looking two-sided documents without standing by the e-All-in-One and handling every page. Automatically scan, copy, or fax two-sided documents. Routinely printing documents on both sides reduces your printing costs, virtually doubles the device's input capacity, and makes paperwork more manageable.
Load documents and walk away. The e-All-in-One includes a 50-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF). You can copy, scan, or fax up to legal-sized originals from the ADF, including two-sided document scanning. (Refer to the "Product walk-around" on the page to learn which options are available for this model.)
Add input capacity and replenish the paper tray less often by adding an additional 250-sheet input tray.

Count on affordable printing
Original HP supplies
Ink is much more than just coloured water; the unique, hi-tech formula for HP ink is designed to work with all the mechanical parts of the print cartridge, and the printer itself, to deliver high quality results across a wide range of papers, in a variety of environmental conditions.
Why Original HP Inks?
It takes up to three years to develop new inks, so a huge amount of work goes into producing Original HP Inks, from the selection of superior ingredients to precision engineering of both the chemical formula of the ink and the high-performance ink cartridge components.
The print cartridge itself is the product of years of research and development and is much more than just an ink tank. The integrated print head on an HP cartridge includes an intelligent circuit that controls the hundreds of nozzles, each finer than a human hair, which deliver the ink onto the page. Each drop of ink is fired onto the page on the back of a tiny vapor blast of heat 7 times the intensity of the sun that lasts for just two millionths of a second; this energy blast exposes the ink drop to forces up to one million G's. Some of the latest Original HP ink cartridges can deliver in excess of 29 million drops per second.
In many of HP's home printers, over 50 percent of the printing technology is contained within the cartridge itself; which means every time you replace your Original HP Ink Cartridge you are installing a brand new print engine. Original HP Inks are developed in conjunction with HP papers to ensure maximum compatibility and performance. The result is the perfect balance of colour, permanence and reliability.
Value XL cartridges
For High Volume printing choose high capacity XL cartridges:
- Best Value for large volumes of printing
