Whether you want to print the romantic reds of Valentines Day, the cheerful reds of the Chinese New Year, or the bold colors of Black History Month, the HP Activity Center has just what you need for less freeze and more fun.
From decorations and gift boxes to iron-ons, cards and zodiac calendars, you can zip your way through these FREE projects with HP printers and supplies. They're designed to work better together to help you get the right print the first time to help you save time and reduce wasted paper, ink, and money.
Make your friend and family visits more vivid from day one with colorful print projects from HP. Spread luck with a Fortune gift box kit, infused with Asian-inspired designs. Celebrate the Year of the Rat with these 3-D Chinese zodiac animals. Print and find your sign on the Chinese zodiac calendar or display it with pride with Chinese zodiac iron-ons.
Print, cut and paste Chinese New Year Party decorations to guide wayward spirits to your door and welcome guests with beautiful wall hangings that capture the spirit of the celebration. Then, join the Lantern Festival with votives depicting colorful characters or illustrations and top your table with Chinese New Year candle wraps.
February is Black History Month and the HP Activity Center has more ways to remember the people and events in American Black history.
Learn about famous figures and notable facts within the vibrantly colored pages of this Black history calendar.
Record your own history with a Family history scrapbook. The HP Activity Center has printable backgrounds, borders, stickers, photo corners and tips on how to start your scrapbook to save memorable moments.
Share your sentiments with Black history greeting cards depicting courage, diversity, perseverance, family bonds and music designs that communicate the experience.
You can also pass on that heritage to your children while you test your own knowledge about influential men, women and events with Black history flash cards.
At the HP Activity Center, you can put your heart into your projects, not a lot of work. Print and make one of these Valentine treat bags or candy wrappers to wrap up a romantic evening.
Upload your favorite photo to the Valentine Photo card web page to make a personalized greeting, or send a Card from the heart with whimsical designs to woo you know who.
You can also make a Paper flower bouquet or a Valentine coupon filled with your personal favors, from babysitting to back rubs. There's also fun for the young with Finger puppets, a Kids' animal valentines kit and a Groovy love mail kit. (Also good for you Baby Boomers who coined the term "groovy.")
Whether you're honoring the old, ringing in the new or rekindling a romance, the HP Activity Center can help you make the most of it. Stop by today!
