On a daily basis, we normally have to check the ink level ourselves and when it runs out – we have to go to the store. HP Instant Ink is to be a solution that will allow us to forget about these matters, because when there is such a need, the inks will appear at our doorstep by themselves. The manufacturer promises an end to the frustration related to the ink running out at the least opportune moment.
In short: HP Instant Ink is a subscription service. We pay a specific amount, adjusted to the frequency of printing, and the monitoring of ink levels and ordering of catridges is then carried out automatically. It is worth noting that the courier will also bring us a prepaid envelope into which we can pack the used cartridge and send it for recycling.
Many questions may arise in connection with a rigid price list of services established by the company. Fortunately, some of them are answered by the company. Examples of questions:
1) What if we don’t use our page limit? – The remaining pages will carry over to the next billing period.
2) What if I exceed my page limit? – The additional package will be automatically activated.
It is also important to note that a page is counted regardless of how full it is – so one page can be only one line of text as well as a color photo for an entire A4 sheet. Needless to say, the service pays off the most when you print the second way most often.
Instant Ink can be purchased separately, but it is also one of many elements of the service offered by the manufacturer. It is something completely new, encompassing the whole printing experience.
