4 reasons why the HP Sprocket Select is the ultimate summer travel companion

Summer is here; the road trips are planned, our festival tickets are booked and our outfits are planned…

And top of our packing list for every summer occasion is the HP Sprocket Select, the newest member of the HP Sprocket family of portable photo printers which is the perfect accompaniment for festivals, road trips, weekends away, barbeques and any social gathering. Not to mention, it makes a very good pressie for pretty much anyone in your life: your travel-loving bestie, your budding-photographer niece or as a thoughtful gift for your other half.

We’ve rounded up the top reasons why the HP Sprocket Select is our beach bag must-have this summer.

1. Capture memories on the go

Spontaneous road trips, festivals and exploring hidden swim spots are some of the best things about the warmer months but capturing and sharing these moments is made even easier with the HP Sprocket Select. You can now print and share your snaps with your friends straight from your smart phone for the ultimate summer keepsake. This new Sprocket prints 30% larger stickable photos with cute stickers and frames available in the updated HP Sprocket app so you can personalise your pics even further. And what’s even better is the HP Sprocket Select is made up of 46% recycled plastic. Nice!

2. The perfect gift for the travel and photography lover

Sometimes finding the perfect gift for someone special can be a little tricky, but for the traveller in your life, the HP Sprocket Select ticks all the boxes. With the new design being slimmer and lighter (making it easier to pop in a bag or suitcase while on the go) you’ll be able to hold onto those moments spent exploring rather than having your holiday snaps get lost in cyberspace.

3. Create a photo journal for someone special

If you’re feeling a bit crafty we suggest making your very own photo journal for a loved one. The HP Sprocket Select allows you to print 2.3 x 3.4 sticker-backed photos that can go straight into a journal or album and is super easy to use through Bluetooth straight to your smartphone. Top tip – leave some blank pages so your loved one can add more photos throughout the summer!
