One of the questions we get quite a bit is what printer we use for our photo and crafting projects, so we partnered with our friends at Canon USA to give you some tips on how to get started with printing at home! We print tons of photos and think it’s totally worth it to have a printer you can use at home. And what better way to get started than with a fun Instagram giveaway?! 🙂 Details on the prize and how to enter on are below, but trust us, you’re going to want to enter this one!
Canon PIXMA TS9521C – This is the newest printer from Canon USA and our whole team is super excited about it. It can print up to 12×12 AND is multipurpose, meaning it can be used for printing, scanning, copying … pretty much for any project you dream up.
Canon IVY – How cute is this mini photo printer? Canon just released this earlier this year and we’re loving the colors it’s available in. To use it you connect it to your phone via Bluetooth and it prints out 2×3 prints that have a sticker application on the back. It comes in mint green, rose gold and slate gray.
Inks – Canon’s ink is developed to be compatible with their printers and the colors are gorgeous. And since we know ink isn’t the most exciting purchase … you should check out the giveaway details for a chance to win a stash! 😉
PIXMA TS8820 – This is also a great option if you’re wanting a lower priced option for a printer. It doesn’t do the large format printing, but the quality is really great and it’s still multipurpose.
A Design Kit – Dress up your photos with different brushes, stickers and text using our newest app, A Design Kit, available on iOS.
A Color Story – We use A Color Story Desktop or our app on our phones to edit photos before we print them. Have you tried the new color select feature? We’re having so much fun with it to make certain colors pop in our photos!
Tattoo Paper – If you want to make a temporary tattoo (because why wouldn’t you?), this is the paper we recommend.
Luster Paper – This is our go-to photo paper. It comes in a variety of finishes and sizes, and our favorite is the semi-gloss for everyday prints and projects.
Vinyl Paper – There are so many fun applications with this paper! We’ve used it on multiple projects and we’re super impressed with how the color was still strong on a different type of material.
Needing inspiration on how to use your printer at home? Below are some of our favorite printing projects from over the years. If you try any of them, make sure to tag us so we can see!
