What is HP Instant Ink?

You probably recognize it. You have designed an invitation with great effort, selected your holiday photos or want to print invoices, but they come out of your printer with stripes, or in faded colors. You no longer have new ink cartridges, and once you have found time to order them, you need to find out the type number of your printer and the cartridges. And where do you leave the old cartridges? HP offers a simple total solution for all these problems: HP Instant Ink.

HP Instant Ink

What is HP Instant Ink?

HP Instant Ink is a plan that you can cancel every month and that allows you to print a fixed amount per month. The cartridges are automatically delivered to your home. Your HP WiFi printer will alert HP if the ink is about to run out. Afterwards, you receive ink suitable for your HP printer. How often you get a new cartridge depends on your chosen print plan. That's why you do not get new ink at a certain period every time, but only once your ink is running out.

Why HP Instant Ink?

  • You don't have to do anything, your printer automatically orders the right cartridges.
  • You save up to 70% on your costs for original HP ink.
  • The plan can be canceled every month.
  • Did you use less ink than you received? Take the ink you have left with you to the next month.
  • Put your old cartridges in the included bag, and HP will recycle them for you free of charge.
