I'm just going to come right out and say it- we love HP Social Media Snapshots. The new application and sticky backed paper make it easy to take your social media posts and save them into tangible memories. Rosie and I were so excited to get an HP Envy printer and the 4×5 paper to try this out in the mail. Originally, we were going to try to test it at a dance event, however the timing didn't work out, so we had a girl's night at our home to give it a whirl.
First, I set up the printer in the living room where we'd have easy access. Before the event, I had everyone download the HP Social Media Snapshots application to their phone. I also tested the application with my teen first to make sure I knew how it worked. It's super simple. You can choose to print from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr or your own gallery of photos. We tested from Facebook and got this little gem. Keep in mind that since I've scanned it, the resolution's gone done. The pic looks amazing in person and since the paper is sticky, it's now on my teenager's wall.
Rosie thinks HP Social Media Snapshots are cool because they look like Polaroid pics and you can customize the background. Plus, you can print straight to the printer from your phone for immediate gratification. The other cool thing? The photos are removable and don't damage walls so she can decorate her room over and over. Take a look at this adorable pic of Toby that she printed from Facebook. It's so cool that you can customize the backgrounds.
As for my friends, they had a good time. When we get together, we love to drink wine, eat great food and talk about everything. And, yes, we always take pictures. Here's some of the fun we had that night.
While we all loved HP Social Media Snapshots, the true test of anything technological is the reaction of the teens. Both of them thought it was cool and in an interesting turn of events, the printer has now been claimed by Rosie. Now she doesn't have to print to one of ours. She'll have tons of fun.
Want to try HP Social Media Snapshots for yourself? The paper is sold exclusively at Staples and you know what? It would be perfect to #StickAPick for a holiday party this year. Add it to your holiday excitement and watch the fun happen.
