HP has announced new printers and printer technology that enables the user
to add creative touches to images and produce stunning photos and vivid
documents – "just like the pros", according to Charlotte Saayman, IPG
Consumer product manager.

Highlights of the announcement include two stylish, compact and portable
photo printers: one that boasts more than 300 creative features and the
largest touch screen available on any portable photo printer, and another
that includes an adjustable display and prints photos up to 5 x 7 inches –
the only printer at its price to offer photos of this size.
The HP Photosmart A630/A636 features a 4.8-inch touch screen – the largest
available on any portable photo printer – and includes more than 300 ways to
edit, draw, touch up and customise photos up to 5 x 7 inches – with or
without a PC.
The HP Photosmart A530/ A532 produces personalised, lab-quality, smudge- and
fade-resistant photos up to 5 x 7 inches, anywhere. Users can get creative,
for example, by adding borders and clip art to create fun photo projects.
These versatile, energy-efficient printers have convenient fold-up paper
trays, adjustable displays and built-in handles; plus, with the optional HP
Bluetooth adapter, users can wirelessly transfer photos from a
Bluetooth-enabled camera phone or other device.
The HP Photosmart A636 and A532 Compact Photo Printers are expected to be
available in August priced at R1999 and R1399, respectively.
The HP 110 Photo Value Pack offers customers increased savings with 150
sheets of 4 x 6-inch HP Advanced Photo Paper and four HP 110 ink cartridges
filled with HP Vivera inks in cyan, magenta, yellow and photo black, all in
one box.
HP offers easy recycling of HP 110 cartridges at no extra charge through
Planet Partners, available for inkjet supplies in 42 countries and
territories around the world.(3) HP ensures that all HP print cartridges
collected through Planet Partners are recycled responsibly – never sending
them to a landfill.
With HP 110 ink cartridges and HP Advanced Photo Paper, customers can enjoy
fast-drying prints with improved water and smudge resistance. Now, with
improved features such as deeper blacks and more vibrant colours, HP
Advanced Photo Paper enables customers to generate lab-quality, highly
vibrant colour photo prints that dry instantly.
This mid-weight, durable paper has a sturdy photo feel and is available in a
wide range of sizes from 4 x 6 inches to 13 x 19 inches, with glossy and
soft-gloss finishes. When used with the new HP 110 inks, HP Advanced Photo
Paper demonstrates more than 60 years of display fade resistance.
