What do I get?

Once enrolled, you’ll receive a Welcome Kit delivered to your door. The ink cartridge you receive is special and only works with HP Instant Ink. Your next shipment of ink will be sent only when ink or toner levels are low, not monthly. No need to worry, because your printer drops us a note and your next set of cartridges will be automatically dispatched.5 Simply return the old cartridges with prepaid recycling.4


How do I pick a plan?

The best plan is based on your usage. If you don’t know how much you print, no worries- you can change or cancel your plan at anytime, at no extra cost.3 Your dashboard in the HP Smart app will help you keep track of the number of pages you’ve printed for the month.


The average family uses the 100 page plan and the average small business uses the 700 page plan (For toner users we recommend the 800 page plan for small businesses.


How do I save?

We make larger cartridges with less packaging, only ship before ink or toner is needed, and recycle cartridges. HP passes these savings on to you and the environment. 


With ink, go ahead and print in colour because colour prints are the same price as black and white. 


What if my printing varies?

Don't worry. You can change or cancel your plan anytime.3 And there's no annual fee. If you print less one month, pages rollover. If you print more, then you can purchase extra pages.
