With gift giving season now upon us, I’m finding myself at odds not only over what to get for everyone but, also, what to give it in. I am a firm believer in the fact that half of the gift is found in its presentation. Yes, I am “that” girl; the one that spends hours neatly wrapping gifts and uses entirely too much tape. Whether it’s fancy, colorful paper or I’m getting crafty with plain brown craft paper, I am adamant about making it nice, making it pretty. Oftentimes, it is the tag that shines. Now, over the years (when it comes to gift tags) I’ve probably done it all… or so I thought. This year, I was introduced to a wonderful new company and product that will surely take my gift giving to a whole new level, ZINK.
The ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer – Yes! A printer! – opened up the doors to a great world of decorative possibilities. Surely, you’ve all tried printing homemade gift tags with your home printer and, of course, we’ve all seen the classic, store bought sticker gift tags, right? Well, the ZINK Smart App Printer is a wonderful combination of the two and then some.
With the ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer you can now print full-color gift tags (of course!), photos, labels, decorations, business cards, and so much more directly from your smartphone or tablet! And all of this, with no ink!
The portable, Wi-Fi app-accessory that allows you to print directly from smart phones and tablets. Just download the free ZINK Design & Print Studio app, load a ZINK zRoll (photographic-quality ZINK Paper in roll form), design, and then wirelessly print to the hAppy Smart App Printer.
You can create just about anything with the ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer. With five different sizes of the unique zRoll paper, you can take on projects, both, big and small. The sizes range from 3/8” up to 2” in width and you can make them just about as long as you’d like.
The ZINK Design & Print Studio app helps you to create the perfect masterpiece. With thousands of professional art elements, such as frames, fonts, art, backgrounds, and tons of beautiful ready-made designs, your creativity with the ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer is just as infinite as your very own imagination. Add in their Idea Book and you can dream up a hundred more projects! With step-by-step instruction might I add! They even have a slew of great project ideas available online (like this holiday one), too!
I have had an incredible time coming up with and creating project after project with our ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer and my kids have had a blast, too! It is an absolute breeze to use. Simply hop onto the app via any smartphone, tablet, or iPad and get your creative juices flowing. Simply choose which designs you like best, create your own, add in photos, edit the text to your liking, paste pre-existing images, swap the colors, and do whatever your little heart desires. Here are a few things that we’ve made thus far:
The sticker backing makes it great for putting just about anywhere and on anything! Address labels are a great starter idea, too! And they’re especially helpful when Santa can’t have the same handwriting as Mommy (wink, wink!).
And, hey, if my little guy can manage creating this on his own then I’m quite sure anyone could easily do the same…
You can purchase the ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer directly from the ZINK website and select Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores nationwide for an ARV of $199.99.
