Who needs to send their pictures off to be printed?


We did a post awhile back about the HP A526 and have been loving the convince of being able to print our photos online. We even printed our own birthday invitations and thank you cards with the A526. The only issue has always been that it only prints 4x6 prints and I end up having to send my 5x7 photos out. Its so rare that I print anything larger than a 5x7 but usually if I do its normally for a gift so those I send out for professional printing anyways.

I almost had a heart attack when I heard that the new A536 would print not only the 4x6 photos, but 5x7s, and even 4x12s. (All of which can be printed without a computer except for the 4x12s!)

In comparison the A526 and the A536 are both great home picture printing options, both are totally portable, both offer 4x6 and 4x12 prints.. but there are some major diffrences as well. The A530 is a massive upgrade with the ability to print 5x7 prints as well as having a truely flip up LCD screen instead of a fixed screen. The coolest upgrade is the one that is the least obvious. The A530 has built in internal memory and when you hook it up to any computer it installs its own software. No cd to bring with you.. no reason to download drivers. They are all there right on the printer the moment you hook up the usb cord. That really brings a whole new aspect to the ability to the fact that you really can take you printer everywhere and hook it up to any available computer to edit and print photos. Otherwise the most obvious change you will see is that the A530 is a bit wider and a tiny bit heavier than the A526 but it has to be to print the 5x6s.

You know I have always been a bit skeptical about photo printers. Back when they were first popular it was a neat option but sometimes the colors ran and the print quality was acceptable but still obvious that it was not a photo lab print. These days and especially with the A536 side by side with my professionally printed photos there is absolutely no way to tell with the naked eye which one is the professional print and which one I printed at home. Ironically I just recently had some photos taken at a major photo chain which prints them there while you wait and I took the same photos home on CD and printed out a few extras to give to family and the ones I printed at home were far nicer than the ones I had printed at the photo place itself! I actually ended up giving away my originals and kept the ones I printed for myself.

If your looking for something a little diffrent, you can edit your photos without ever having to hook the A536 to your computer. That even includes adding designer tints or changing your pictures to black and white. I just printed the cutest picture of Connor in his new super hero cape in a metallic overlay and it came out really neat!

The best selling point about the A536? Well thats really simple, though its not available yet for sale when it is its said to be priced at around $99 which is super super cheap for all those options! Talk about a perfect gift for the grandparents!

I am so excited about the A536 that I decided this would be a perfect time to give away our A526 that we tested a few months ago.

The print quality on this looks amazing (4800 x 1200 dpi). I'd print out a ton of pictures of my 3-yr old twins and maybe finally put them in a nice album!

Thanks,
Maureen

Stephanie said...

Print speed as fast as 27 sec (with border, direct connect). Would use to print photos of my baby boy (no more waiting for online orders in mail -- yeah!)

I like that the 536 is compatible with both Windows and Mac - so it is great for couples with mixed preferences!

If I won the 526, I woud print mostly nature photos - I use them as postcards. Or I would give it to my Mom, who would use it to print family photos.

Mekhismom said...

Hi fellow momblogger! I like the fact that the A536 prints so quickly and that I can use it with my Mac. If I had the A526 I would print more photos of my little one. I have tons of photos on my computer but I haven't done anything with them yet, it might help me jumpstart my scrapbooking!

fluggy said...

I love the fact it prints several different sizes of prints and the built in internal memory is awesome!!

This would be one sweet printer to own!

Thank you for the great giveaway!

My favorite feature of the new A536 is the ability to print 5x7's. I scrapbook, so this feature would be great to have!!
Thank you!!

louiseb130 said...

I love the small size and handle!

seeryusfam@msn.com said...

I like the speed that the A536 has. Printing in 27 seconds...for a photo! That's awesome!

I take pictures of my kids all the time because their Grandpa lives across the country and so that way he can see the kids grow up through photos!

MCS Girl said...

I like all the new various printing sizes of the photos. I would give this to my mom if I won as she is a major baseball fan and would use it to print off pics of her with her favorite players.

Sue Farrell said...

I think the price is a great feature--so low--plus it seems pretty fast at printing the photos. I would print a lot of pictures of our animals and try some closeups of my flowers.

Tuesday Girl said...

I love that it has software available for free download! I would love to print pictures of my three kids!Can't have enough of those!

Tina12312 said...

I think the feature I love best is that it prints 5 x 7's, that is so great! I'd probably print vacation photos, and holiday photos the most on it. Thank you so much!

Melissa said...

I like that you don't have to be connected to a computer to print! That would be so nice. As for what I would print with it? Everything! I'm terrible about printing out my pictures because I don't have a photo printer! jeepcutie82 at msn dot com

Stacy said...

I can't believe the print speed is only 27 sec.
I would print a ton of pics of our 6 month old.

Alice H said...

I like that the printer is Energy Star certified. I'd most often print family stuff - family pictures and documents. Thanks! afdr3d@umkc.edu

Robyn's Online World said...

I like that the A536 is Energy Star Certified! If I won the A526 I would mostly print photos out for my grandmother to send to her. The rest of the family we just email photos and people print what they want, but Grandma doesn't want a computer so we still print out pictures for her.

aBookworm said...

Wow, this seems so much better than all those other photo printers. Besides being able to print different sizes (a definite plus), I also like the fact that you can edit pictures without hooking up to a computer. Especially since Kiddo's grandparents are still happily computer-free and this will help tremendously when we go visit them.

Thanks for yet another fabu giveaway!

Jennifer said...

I love that it's compact & fast! I would print out all the pictures I need for scrapbooking projects should I win! Thanks for the chance!

Have a great weekend!

jag said...

I love the fact you don't need to have a computer connected to print photos. I could see printing pictures DURING a party. I would print pics of my kids the most (to keep the grandparents happy!)

D said...

I like the fact that you can print the photos off right away. Mine stay on my camara for months, because I forget to take it with me to the store!
I would print lots of photos for immediate scrap booking/framing!

ryan said...

i like the convenience it brings me to print my photos at home and its options to print varieties of projects from photos to thank you cards. If i get pick. i would print most my experience in the military while i circle the world on my missions.

gunzie said...

Well, compared to the printer I have now this one is a lot more compact and a lot cheaper! I like the fact that you print out different sizes of paper and I would love to win this to print off my pictures of my kids! That's mainly all the pictures I'm taking anyway!
Thanks for the great giveaway!

mverno said...

i like the quick printing

brianpiero said...

...the built-in memory, photo editing software, ability to print multiple sizes, and the flip up LCD screen are all great improvements on the A536; and you can't beat the price, 99 bucks.

I would like to print my own family photos using some of that neat editing software; it might come in handy for some work related projects as well.

Macey said...

This looks like a perfect little printer-I like that it prints as fast as 27 sec and that it is portable. Very cool!

Michelle said...

I only buy HP products because I KNOW they are quality! I like that its compact because I have so much stuff on my desk already.

I have really been trying to get my scrapbooking together so I can focus on it and this photo printer would help me do just that.

mar said...

The feature I like is that the copied pictures look just like the originals, making it hard to tell the difference. I would use this printer for copying photo shots of my grandchildren. thank you

misty said...

I love the fact that it can be as fast as 27 seconds. I would print out recipes with pictures and all of the thousands of pictures I take of my little girl. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

I LOVE this! I love that it will print from memory cards and it will print so quickly! I would use this to print pictures of my twinsies and my four year old prince charming!

Thanks!

peg42 said...

I love that this prints different sized photo's. I would use this mainly for printing digital pictures. We have a digital camera, but not a photo printer. Right now we bring them to our local drug store to have the digital photo's printed out. This would be a great help.
Thanks for this awesome giveaway.

Kimberly said...

I love that it has a GREAT dpi print out and that it prints fast. Much faster then my regular printer that is for sure.

I would print out the zillion pictures of my kids that are sitting on discs and on my hard drive waiting for me to upload them all to Walmart or CVS and have copies made. I would certainly be much quicker to print out picture immediatly if I had a great photo printer then I am when they pile up dozens (if not more) at a time on my hard drive and burned on CD's.

Thank you for an AWESOME prize give away!

jepnet said...

I am most excited about the feature to print borderless. I already own two photo printers that will not print without a margin. Full-bleed printing produces far more professional looking pictures. I make cards all the time, so, having a printer that does what I want it to would be great.

The Boy, Sagan said...

speed speed speed baby! If I won this thing I'd probably have a stroke. You can print pics so much faster on this thing than my fossil of a printer!

Sage Cambria said...

I would print pics of our almost 3 year old & our little on the way jellybean! :0)

I like that you can print them without a computer!

sphinx63 said...

What I like best is that you don't have to have a computer to print your pics! So I could take this with me to a party and print pics for everyone right from my camera. Thanks!

Judith said...

The easy hook up is the best feature in my opinion because I am scared to hook anything up for fear of ruining it.I have had a new printer for months and haven't got it hooked up yet as everyone is so busy lately.

EuropetoOhio said...

the hp a536 is one sleek fast printer. I have to print invoices daily since I work from my home office and this is one sweet printer that would get the job done for me daily. I would love to have this printer as it is exactly what I need>

2Tall said...

This printer would be great. I have never seen a portable printer. The 4X6 size would be no problem, because I need to print out lots of pictures to put in photo albums. That would be the two features that would be most important.

jenstill said...

I love it's small size, yet fast printing. I have a very small desk/computer area so the size is important. But, I don't want to be waiting forever to print out all my snapshots of my beautiful babies! We just got back from Disney and I'd like to print out a lot of the photos I took for the scrapbook.

mom2boys said...

Wow this would be awesome to have for all my kids pictures. I have so many on my laptop I need to print off. Thanks for the chance!

Nicole (SAHM Ramblings) said...

Honestly, the memory slots are huge for me. I love being able to pull the card out of my camera and kick it right into the printer.

What would I print? Hmmm. Probably picture note-cards. I love sending thank you notes with a picture of my child holding the gift that we're thanking them for!

Kristie said...

I love that the A536 prints both 4x6's and 5x7's!
The A526 would be great for my in-laws. I was just out with my mother-in-law a couple weeks ago and she had to go in the store to crop a few pictures to put in her son's memorial garden. It would have been so nice if she could have just done that from her own printer. I'm sure she'd love to print pictures of the grandkids too! :)

Channah said...

I like the fact that it's got card readers, so I can just pop my memory card in, and print away!
I'd print up pictures of my son, so I could send them off to relatives!

Happy Friday! For the A536, I like the speed and high dpi. The A526 would be so fun to win. Because of its' small size, I could take it with me. I could do photographs at the pool, family get-togethers and birthday parties. Baseball games would really be a blast of impromptu photos. Many thanks, Cindi

This is a fantastic printer! Nothing would be better than being able to print at home for all of the photos needed for those last minute school projects! Thanks for a great contest! I will email you my email address.

tutugirl said...

Love that it has it's own software so whatever computer I hook it up to, it will work. That's a great feature to have. I would probably use it the most to print out the pics I always promise to send people but never get around to actually doing it.

Hil'Lesha said...

I like the idea that it prints out pictures from your digital camera. I'd print pictures of friends and family.

Molly said...

I like that the printer prints so quickly. I hate waiting for my pictures to print! I would print pictures of my son constantly!

Cynthia said...

I like the fact that it can print 4x12. It's a unique size and it would make eye catching cards - which is what i would use it for!

Missy said...

I am amazed by the different sized photos this printer can print. This would be perfect for my scrapbooking hobby. I would definitely print off lots of photos of my little girls with it. Thanks for this excellent giveaway!

Preppy Mommy said...

I'd love to throw my hat in the ring for this one. I like the fact that you can print 5x7. I can only print 4x6 on my older HP model. I've got 3 kids so I've got to print lots of pix for me and the extended family =)
Thanks.

thanks for the giveaway. like the fact the cartridges are easy to find and affordable, another factor is the fast rpinting, you don't have to wait minutes for one, the quality looks awesome.
I teach and we use pics to make scrapbooks for the kids throughout the year and they take them home to show how they have grown and changed..its pretty cool.

Buki Family said...

i like that it only takes 27 sec to print a photo. I would mostly print pictures of my son and send it off to friends and family

Uniquely Yours said...

I like the fact that it can print as fast as 27 sec. With all the pictures of my daughter I'll be printing it has to be fast! lol

Dana Lynne said...

I LOVE the versatility of this printer and how user-friendly it seems! I would definitely print A LOT of 5x7s! It seems that that's the size I always want to frame and hang in the house, but I just never seem to get around to ordering them online!

danalynne719[at]yahoo[dot]com

Anam said...

The built in internal memory sounds amazing. This would be an incredible tool fior me being handicapped. I don't have a vehicle and to be able to make my own pics at home would mean my Mum would actually get some photos of me and her grandaughter!

it's a great all around printerand we would use it to print all our printing needs.

strawberry3d said...

i like the printing features on the a526 and if i won i would print out sexy pictures for my sugarpie.

Emily said...

I would have to say the quality and speed are big deals to me. I also like the small size. I am a lover of photography and a scrapbooker, so I would use the printer to print my many photos so I can be a bit more behind on my scrapping! ;)

coriwestphal said...

As fast as 27 seconds? No way. i'd have to see it to believe it. I would definately be printing some of the 400 pictures I have on my camera right now. I have to learn to stay on top of these things. If only i had a printer that would print them in under 30 seconds... Thanks for the great contest!

randycur0962 said...

I like the fact that this printer has it's own internal memory and there's no software CD that needs to be installed. I also love all the different size print option, can't wait to win and see the quality.

toasters lie said...

I like that it's compatible with XP.

My biggest thing is print quality. I resisted the digital revolution from the get go, since I studied black and white photography in college (developing your own pictures, film...remember film??). This looks great for a home printer...4800 x 1200 dpi!?!
I would print out travel photos and pictures of my two kiddos!

Jenni said...

I love the print speed on this model. And sadly, we hardly ever remember to break out the camera unless its of our 15 month old, so I'm sure we would print pictures of him.

Thanks!

the print speed and dpi is amazing- 5x7's too
this would be so great for pics of my grandaughter and my puppy

It would be great to print pictures off as fast as 27 seconds right from my home! Of course most of my pictures would be of my son Tristan.

I guess I'm printer illiterate because I didn't understand what all the features were, but I did see that the printer was fast, has a whole lot of memory space and comes with a year warranty. I need this for prining my baby's photos. I haven't been able to develop them yet. Would love to do it myself!

The fact that it prints in color is the best feature for me. I work with students who cannot talk. So, I print out a lot of pictures for them to be able to use in order to express themselves to others. Color is a must!!

I think it's awesome that it prints 4 x 12's. We take TONS of pics of our son and also do some hobby photography around town. It would be great to have a high tech photo printer like this to print out our best pics immediately from home!

Anonymous said...

I would use it for all of my printing needs.

NateAndJakesMom said...

I love the price of this product - so reasonable. I also like the speed!! Faster than running to the store to pick them up.
I plan on getting all the pictures into a scrapbooking album before the new baby is born. That way I can procrastinate on one baby's pictures and not two!

Just not having to order prints would be perfect, in my opinion! I like that it's compact, quick, and has a built in card reader.

I like that you can use it without hooking it up to your computer and that it will print different size photos.

I would mostly print photos of my friends and family from parties and BBQs so that I could give them nice hard copies of their own.

carmen said...

I love the fact that you can use a memory card in the printer! I would print out photos that are just sitting on our computer and in memory cards of our first child that is 19 months old and then be able to print photos of our baby due in September! very cool

Wow! 27 seconds is fast! That's my favorite feature. I am in desperate need of a photo printer and would love to win this one. Thanks for the giveaway!

ziggy789 said...

I love the fact that I can create all different sizes of photos. I have an OLD photo printer, but it will only print out 4x6 prints, so this would REALLY be nice!!

Princess Golden Hair said...

I really love that the 536 is compatible with both Windows and Mac. The print quality sounds AMAZING. I'm going to have to check this printer out just in case I don't win.

llinda29 said...

I like that the A536 prints so quickly If I had the A526 I would print more photos of my grandchildren and pets

susan1215 said...

I like you can print different sizes. I would print out pictures of my kids.

redfantum said...

I love the fact that you don't need an installation cd. We use our printers on several computers, drag them to work sometimes, etc. This would make it so much easier. As for what I would print, Christmas Cards! I love photo cards, hate the price, having to order,etc. This is perfect.

Sundi said...

I love that the A536 prints pictures bigger than 4x6 in a portable photo printer! Like you said -- great for holiday cards and greetings!

If I won the A526, I'd print out pics of my kids to send to my grandma who doesn't own a computer -- she still needs the prints to see her great-grandkids!

The print quality and print speed definitly sound appealing to me, I mean, if your going to take the time to print out all those special pictures of your little one(s) you want them to be worth perfect. I would absolutley use it to print out tons (and I do mean TONS)of pics of my sweet baby girl!

Thanks for the contest. I just found your blog thru "mommyology".

I'm not really up on all the technical lingo for the a536 but I do know that 27 seconds to print is fast, Energy Star Rated is going to save me money and it's under a 100 bucks to begin with! Your review filled in the blanks. Your a526 would alot me to print from home thus saving me time, gas and money. Wonderful.

PS said...

Energy Star! YAY!! I didn't even know that printers could get that rating!!

ISUamanda said...

I like the price and speed of the 536. We would print out pictures of the boy to send to his greatgrandparents who don't have computers and really appreciate actual photos!

djolsen said...

We have hauled ourselves into the 21st century and bought a camera and have started taking pictures of our new lifestyle (retirement).
I had no idea what a printer could do until I saw your blog. I would have so much fun. Well, we would.
I hate standing at Walmarts not knowing how to work their machine.

Bebemiqui said...

I like the different sized prints that you can do.
Great giveaway! Count me in. bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

Sweetpeas said...

What a great price! I've always thought of photo printers (at least good ones) as being totally out of my price range. I'd love to actually get the past 5 1/2 yrs of kid pictures printed & into albums, but the cost of sending all those pictures off to be printed makes me keep putting it off.

Jen said...

I like how quickly the a526 prints as well as not having to be directly connected to a computer. This makes portability easier. I would probably print more photos at home and actually get more scrapbook pages completed that way.

ANNE S said...

speed and lack of margins

julie said...

fast 27 sec and the software is free to download ...pics of my daughter of course

travellingmomof2 said...

The sprint speed would be great in my house. Always on the go and when I need that quick picture of a vacation memory to show people the kids smiles, this would be great.

Internet Finds said...

We have several HP products and love them all. A printer is not one of them. This is great that it prints 5x7 too. I love it

Chic Gal said...

Oh for me it's all about the price! I have purchased several different photo printers and so far my face is still buried in the instruction manuals. Thanks for this opportunity!

shimmala said...

Can't beat how fast those prints come out--wow! I'm scared about how much $$ I'd spend on photo paper! Would love to win...

Kristinia - Loving Heart Mommy said...

The printing speed is super fast, the quality of the images sounds crystal clear and this would just be a lifesaver instead of having to run up to my local one hour photo stop! Another plus about not needing to hook up to the computer too!

JenO said...

I'd use it when I go to scrapbook retreats to print just the pics I want to use on my pages.

I love that it doesn't need a computer, so it's nice and portable!

Leane said...

I luv how compact the A536 is and how fast it prints!
I would use the A526 to print some of the thousands of digital pics that I have on my computer that need to be printed and sent to relatives and friends.
Awesome giveaway! Thanks.

Cuddle Cottage said...

I love that you can edit photos without even having to connect the A536 to your computer, very convenient! I would use it to print the many, many photos of my daughter I have stored on my desktop!

I like how small it is and I would print lots of pics of my daughter. We have one of these photo printers by kodak, we got it a few years ago but it never really printed right so we dont use it much. we got it as a gift and didnt have the receipt so we were kinda stuck with it. Great giveaway, thanks!

Lucky said...

I like a lot of the features lke fast printing - not having to be hooked up - one year warranty, but my favourite thing about it is its Energy Star Certified. Now that's cool.

Hey thanks for hosting such a great contest. I think a lot us readers of your blog are likely moms who are constantly being asked by moms and moms-in-law for photos!

Kari said...

I'd love this! The quality resolution of the pics looks fabulous!! Im a scrapbooker and take tons of photos and usually just order them online but this would seriously rock!

vboackle said...

that it can print 5 by 7 prints.

Jennifer said...

The print quality is beautiful and I love that you have a good size selection.
I would print all my childrens pictures for personal photo albums.

Wow, my wife wants a new photo printer for her birthday, this one is perfect! I like that is prints quickly, unlike our last photo printer. I know she would use it to print out pics of our kids!! And she needs it to print out documents for her business!

Mya said...

I love that's it's Energy Star rated.
I would print lots of recipes! And be able to put them nicely in 5X7 size!

Amber said...

Well, I currently do not have a printer, so I would appreciate all its features.

I am doing Project 365 in which I take a photo a day for a whole year. I would absolutely love to print them from home.

Thanks for a second chance to win.

Meredith said...

Well,the price is great,it prints all the important sizes,don't need it hooked to a computer. Now, if it would only get it's ink color free by magically sucking it out of the color spectrum by separating wave lenths like a rainbow!

TheAngelForever said...

I love the size. It can easily be stored and has the ability to be wireless - excellent to keep away from the kids. I would use mine to print photos of my boys for our family.

Thanks for the amazing giveaway :)

A Cowboy's Wife said...

The print quality looks awesome. I would like it to print only photos. I have an all in one but the photo quality is not near as good as a this.

DePro said...

I like the small size and would use it to print photos.

divrchk said...

I like how the card fits right in. This would be great!

Tiffany said...

I can't say what I'd print most. Editing would be my most used feature. I'd print lots and lots of 4x6 sizes for grandmas, and scrapbooks too.Oh what fun I'd have giving photos at Christmastime w/o all of that running around!

Grateful Gramma said...

I like the speed and the print quality. (That part I understood....a lot of the rest of it was over my head!)

I'd print more pictures of my beautiful granddaughter.

Teresa said...

I like that its compatible with so many different systems! I hate it when I buy something, forget to check the requirements, then have to return it!

Ginny said...

I love the compact size & the price is to good to beat!

Sara G said...

27 seconds...that's incredible! I hate waiting for color prints to finish. Great printer!

carol drury said...

Would love to win this - thanks!!!
cdrury@gmail.com
I would use it primarily to print photos directly from my camera - I am not terribly techno smart and I dont do a lot of crafts but I take tons of photos!!!

jbubolz-miller said...

im excited about the quickness of printing! also the fact that it is compatible with many types of software. Our camera just died- so i know we're in the market for some new technology
I'd love to use it for my graduation from nursing school!

kristine hanson said...

I have to have all my photo's printed at Costco, I don't have a printer, this would be lovely! Thanks for the chance! I love how small/compact it is, would not take up a lot of space on my computer table

Doreen said...

I think the wireless option sounds fab! Lord knows we could use LESS wires!! :)I would like the chance to just print ANYTHING at this point...from confirmation of paying online for things to pictures and coupons! I want to print things soooo badly! I don't have a Printer! :( I've been without one for so long. I'm really hoping to win one of these!
