    HP Creative Studio Review

    Reviewing a printer, ink cartridges, toner cartridges and any other printer related accessories is one of the missions of this blog. But what about all those services, programs, software’s and web pages that make your printing life so much easier?

    That's the reason we took some time, downloaded, and even tested some of the projects before writing a review of the great initiative HP has to deliver printing solutions.  Ideas are easy when you have the “gift” but most of us craft-handicapped people actually spend hours just researching to find if someone else has already done it and shown how to do it the easiest way. Side note here… what did we do before Internet? Oh yeah we bought craft magazines and swapped ideas with more crafty people.

    Anyway as we said the HP Creative Studio has tons of Ideas, projects and tips ready to edit, click and print. Some great features are:

    HP Creative Studio for Home Use
    : Well obviously it is aimed for home crafters, parents, kids, teenager printing people that use it for fun, decoration or school and realize personalized is better than bought. Just to give you an idea of the projects…. Photo books and scrapbooks, greeting cards, calendars, photo borders, party decorations, games and toys, you can even design and print your own wrapping paper.

    HP Creative Studio for Business Use: Most definitely a must for start ups and small businesses. You have marketing templates; you can design your logo, use payroll for free, print postage from your PC, design and print your business cards and much more.

    HP Daily Surprise - A new craft delivered to your desktop for free everyday. It gives you a fun, easy craft idea from the HP Creative Studio and obviously related to the day in question. For example 4th of July cards, summer crafts and much more, for me it was a time saver honestly I knew that I had an idea related to the holiday or special day and ready to go for the kids to ensemble, color, or just enjoy. So my Mommy Thumps up for this one!

    How to print great cards

    Honestly I love going to greeting card stores and spend hours reading all the different cards. Most of the time I find that even thought there are thousands of cards, none of them say exactly what I need to convey. So I always end up in front of my computer designing the cards myself.

    Cards can be used for all types of occasions; Birthdays, Holidays, Announcements and Halloween of course!! You’ll always find that people love getting printed cards, don’t get me wrong, e-cards are wonderful but impossible to decorate with them or to pin on your cube at work.

    Let’s get started then with some tips and ideas for printing great cards.

    Creating the Card:

    Obviously there are plenty of software applications that have greeting card features such as PageMaker, InDesign, or any other desktop publishing software.

    • Pick a greeting card format or template
    • Choose graphics.
    • Select a font.
    • Create a consistent look.
    Proof and print the greeting card:

    When it comes time to print your final greeting card, don't forget that final proof. Before putting your creation on expensive photo paper or greeting card stock print a final proof in draft mode.
    • Check text and graphics and layout.
    • Check margins and alignment.
    • Fold your proof and make sure everything lines up correctly.
    • If printing multiple copies of the final card, first print just one at high quality on the desired paper. Check color and ink cartridge coverage.
    Make a 3D Card

    While some photographs have a 3D look to them, you can really make them pop off the page by printing it twice and layering the two photos on top of each other.

    • Create a Greeting Card in Your Software Program
    • Cut Out Your 3D Photo Elements
    • Apply Foam Squares to the Back of the Cut-Out
    • Attach Cut-Out to Photo Card

    Printable Pumpkin Carving Patterns and Printing Tips

    Halloween is just around the corner and it wouldn't be the same if you didn't carve your own Jack-o-Lantern!  Luckily the other day I met a great fellow squidooer like me on twitter and he shared with me his latest squidoo lens than in turn I'm sharing with you that has an awesome array of pumpkin patterns to give you an idea or just print them and carve.

    Here is his and two other great twitter people that I found with spectacular ideas:

    @nukemdomis: Not another list of free Halloween pumpkin carving patterns

    @delloween: HGTV-Exclusive Pumpkin-Carving Templates

    @americanpapist: Pro-Life Pumpkin

    Now for some printing tips:

    1. Remember that the end product is your pumpkin so be sure to print with black ink on draft mode to save on ink.

    2. Another thing you can consider is using slightly used paper, those that you printed by mistake with a few words or just the date and obviously you recycle for this kind of things.

    3. After you carve your master piece take a picture because your pumpkin won't last for long but a picture last forever!  Now that picture you should print in the best quality possible.

    4.  Now that you took pictures of your Jack O'Latern use them next year for decoration purposes or party invitations.  Great Idea huh?

There are many things to consider to have the perfect Halloween. We are just going to focus on one today. How to print your own Halloween mask. You'll find links to the best places where you'll find ready to print color masks or to color yourself before printing. 

    HP Creative Studio: Obviously Halloween with out Dracula or Frankestein doesn't seem scary enough. HP has this two ready to print masks for you.
    Disney Family Fun: Well you don't necessarily need to be a monster. Superhero masks are a must when thinking about the perfect Halloween party. Here you'll find all you need to be the best superhero of the party.
    Pastiche Family Portal: Has a good collection of masks and also gives you other mask options other than attaching ribbon or strings to it. You'll find printable masks for lion, pinguin face, phantom, mummy, dracula, big bald dude, clown and others.
    Fantasy Jr: My personal favorite site for great and unique masks. You'll find Gizmo Alien, Brain Eating, Monster, Creepy Gargoyle, Lizard Man, Slobering Ogre, Eyed Alien and other very good masks.
    Free Halloween Masks: A bit more on the cute side than scary this masks are perfect for little kids. They have ready to print Lion, Hippo, Crocodile, Bear, Hyena, Elephant and other cute animals. 

    Printing Tips:
    • Make sure you preview your mask before printing. It takes a few minutes more but you'll be sure it is all with in printing borders.
    • Use thick paper. Obviously in order for your mask to hold on through the scary night use cardboard paper.
    • Full color is better than draft mode. Don't try to save ink because the effect will not be the same. If you are taking the time to make your own mask, print it full color all the way.
    • Adding contact paper after printing before adding the strings will make your mask stronger and why not water proof, who knows what might happen during the night, trick or treating can get wet sometimes.


    How to replace Xerox Phaser 8550 Solid Ink Cartridge - Video

    Xerox offers a verified color printing technique called solid ink that uses solid sticks (actually they look more like blocks) that basically melt inside the printer. The ink is non-toxic and because it’s solid say good-bye to leaks and carpet stains. The solid ink produces amazing results with the advantage of being environmental friendly and cost-effective.

    A great Xerox solid ink printer is the Xerox Phaser 8550 Printer. Some of the benefits of using Xerox Phaser 8550 ink sticks are:

    • They are easy to use by just dropping them into the printer compartment.
    • Non-toxic and can even be handled by children.
    • Can’t leak and thus are safer and cleaner.
    • More storage space available because ink sticks are small (fit in a desk drawer).
    • Less packing material and waste to enter landfills.

    When you wish to contribute to preserving our planet Earth and take a part in protecting our environment, your printing methods can assist in this greatly. Using a printer that prints with solid ink is a benefit not only to your business and savings along that line, but saves our planet as well.

    The following video shows how to replace the ink stick cartridges on the Phaser 8500 Printer:
