HP Instant Ink at-a-glance
The hassle-free, money-saving ink subscription service, starting at $1.25 a month.

Save money

Our plans are based on how many pages you print (not how much ink you use). HP Instant ink cartridges hold more ink, use less packaging2, and ship automatically3, bringing down costs for HP, so we can pass the savings on to you.

Never run out

Your printer knows when it’s running low on ink and automatically sends more, so you never run out.4 You will receive cartridges when your printer runs low, not necessarily every month.

Watch video

Every page counts the same

You can print as many color photos or presentations as you want for the same price as black and white documents. So you'll never worry about rationing ink again.

Complete control

Keep track of every page you print and monitor your usage.5 Unused pages rollover, and you can add extra pages if you print more.6 Plus you can change or cancel anytime.8
