Save up to 50% on ink1

Instead of buying Original HP cartridges, you pay a low monthly fee that includes ink and delivery from $0.99 a month.

Ultimate flexibility

Unused pages rollover6 and extra pages cost just pennies, plus you can change your plan or cancel at any time at no cost.3

Hassle-free recycling

Prepaid recycling is included for easy recycling of your HP ink cartridges.4

How does HP Instant Ink work?

Instead of buying a traditional HP ink cartridge, Instant Ink is a subscription based cartridge where you can print a certain number of pages a month. Photos and black-and-white documents all cost the same. With Instant Ink, you no longer have to worry about finding HP ink at the store or comparing prices.

Looking for ink cartridges?



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 color because color 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.

What happens to my unused pages?

If you do not use all your plan pages in a month, the unused pages will be kept in your account as rollover pages. Ink plans can roll over 3x the number of pages in your plan (150 pages if on the 50-page plan) and toner plans can roll over 2x the number of pages (100 pages if on the  50-page plan).6
