Here's a small inkless printing system that works off your tablet. Ink crystals are embedded in the paper, rather then having a cartridge of ink Has anyone gotten one yet and tried it, and would you recommend it?

I think I saw something like this that said print straight from your smart phone and never buy ink again. I wondered how it worked!

I bought it from HSN. It was the TSV on one of the crafting days there. It is called the Zink Happy. The crystals are embedded in the paper and it is true, you do not buy ink for this printer. It's really small and portable. So far, I really like it! Smile There are different sizes of paper ranging from the teeny tiny 3/4" all the way up to 2".

I have a Zink printer, too. It works fine but I don't think the images or text are very sharp. It is true that you don't buy ink, but the paper isn't exactly cheap.

I agree. It isn't very sharp to me either. Especially the pics. I even use the vivid mode. But still not sharp. I should have known how they would print as I have a Polaroid ZINK printer and that one printed worse than this one.
I am just keeping it for all the possibilities that I can see using it for. I sure pray that it gets better with updates. I ONLY purchased it because I had a 15% coupon that I used which took the price to $186.
I am sure that the price will go down a whole lot more later.....Wish I could wait and not have to have everything when it comes out.LOL
