Kids all over the country are readying themselves for the first day of school.  Many many years ago, I recall this being one of the most highly anticipated days of the year.  Part of the fun was the preparation.  These days kids have an amazing arsenal of tools to get them ready.

HP’s new Photosmart e-All-in-One printers are a must have in any family’s household.  Being an HP printer household ourselves, there is no limit to what these printers can do.  Not only will the kids be able to print out all of their homework assignments and photos for show and tell, but they can also access new print apps including Crayola for coloring pages, PBS Kids for literacy, math and science activities or Disney for fun and educational after-school activities including coloring pages, games and crafts. Starting at just $99, e-All-in-Ones are also equipped with ePrint, a unique simple email address assigned to the printer that allows the sender to deliver a print the same way they would send an email message.  For some parents that are still not very tech savvy, that’s an awesome feature and still keeps us “cool” with our kids.  They’ve got a printer for every level of need, from a family who prints homework and occasional pieces of artwork and photos to the family with a professional parent who works from home or at home.

Parents will also love Snapfish photo gifts that are practical for the daily routine including personalized notebooks for keeping those notes in order (available for $9.99) or a desktop organizer to display a favorite photo of family and friends while keeping all those school supplies handy (available for $26.99).

Tired of looking at the same old book cover and locker?  Download and print free book covers and locker posters from the HP Creative Studio for FREE!  The HP Creative Studio also offers bookmarks, flash cards and mini journals to keep you on track and record your special memories from the year. In fact, while you’re out shopping for supplies, pick up a pack of HP’s Multipurpose Paper, Everyday Photo Paper or Advanced Photo Paper. With each purchase of these select products, parents can unlock the magic of Mickey & Friends to create their own collage masterpiece from the Disney Print Center presented by HP. For more, visit
