HP Print Apps
Darling brought home a new toy for me to play with last week. It’s a HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 4515 e-All-in-One Printer. It’s amazing how advanced technology is these days. Gone are the days when a printer’s function is to just print. These days, we can print content from the Web directly from the printer without the need to use the computer! Don’t believe? Well, not any printer can do it but this HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 4515 e-All-in-One Printer definitely can.
I’ll explain more about it in a bit but first, let’s unbox it.
The multi-functional wireless HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 4515 e-All-in-One Printer that can print, scan, copy and fax.
What’s in the box:
HP 678 Black Ink Cartridge (~480 pages)
HP 678 Tri-colour Ink Cartridge (~150 pages)
1.8-meter USB cable.
HP Photo Creations
Yes, they even include a pack of photo paper in it so I can start printing pictures straight from my smartphone (as this printer has a built-in wifi function) before I lose them should my phone crashes AGAIN *touch wood*
Now, let the guys set up the printer.
Little Ayden wanted to help too!
Once the printer is set up, I need to make sure that it is Web connected so we can print direct from the printer. But before that, let’s download the HP Print Apps.
It’s very simple even Ethan can do it. All we have to do is:
Create an HP ePrint Centre account at hp.nu/C3qCA
Collect our printer’s claiming code by following the instructions here: hp.nu/C3rdV
Click “Add a device” on the Devices tab and enter our printer’s claiming code.
All set! We can now browse through the exclusive HP Printables and download them into our HP Printer.
This printer comes built with a 2.65-inch (6.7 cm) colour touchscreen controller and memory-card slot. The touchscreen controller makes it so much easier for Ethan to use.
With HP Print Apps, we get access to a wide-range of content from HP and companies such as Dreamworks Animation and Rovio (Angry Birds) for FREE! We can choose to print on the spot or schedule for automatic delivery on days most suitable for us.
Remember I posted on FB this simple Cootie Catcher I made for Ethan? What happened was he came home from school earlier that day and told me that his friend had this awesome ‘toy’ that was made of paper. He also told me that his friend can make the toy ‘talk’ and that was when I guessed he was referring to a cootie catcher. True enough, when I made that, he was extremely happy and kept thanking me like as if I’m the smartest Mommy in the world! ^_^
Imagine Ethan’s delight as he was browsing through the HP Printables from the printer and saw this:
Angry Birds Cootie Catcher template printables!
He immediately printed it out. Here’s how easy it was for him to print it. Watch this :
Once printed he excitedly got me to help him with it. The printout is laser-sharp and super nice!
I guided him to fold the cootie catcher and there he got it, his very first Cootie Catcher – Angry Bird no less!
He also printed out many Origami instructions from the HP Print App as he is an origami die-hard fan.
He has been folding origami since 2 years old as seen in this picture taken from our craft blog.
These are some of the origami he has pasted on the wall in his room.
I really like the super sharp print quality!
I helped Ethan with this origami monkey. It was nice to spend the evening together folding origami. I think I’ll start Ayden with simple origami too in the near future.
Ethan and his monkey friend :D
With the year-end school holidays just around the corner, this printer will prove to be handy. I can foresee Ethan printing lots of activities for the holidays but it is okay as the ink cartridges are very affordable. What’s more important is we get to spend quality time doing origami, crosswords or even arts and crafts printed from the printer.
I was on Facebook and found out that HP Malaysia Facebook Page is currently running a HP Print Apps contest. All you need to do is print the Origami printables and upload photo of your kids and their origami on HP Malaysia Facebook page. Weekly winner can win home shopping vouchers worth RM100! Do check out their FB page here for more info.

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
