Inkjet printers work by placing very small droplets of ink onto paper or other types of media to create an image or text. These are the most common type of printer you’ll see - you might even have one at home right now. Inkjet technology was actually conceptualized in the 20th century and was first seriously developed in the early 1950s. In the late 1970s, inkjet printers could recreate digital images made by computers - one of the first companies to provide this technology to the public was HP®.
Inkjet printers: technology for all of your printing needs from home to business
HP InkJet printers have come a long way since their beginnings of slow processing times and limited functions. Today, these devices are more powerful and dependable than ever. Whether you’re a parent who needs to print out your children’s school projects or you’re an avid concert-goer who prefers the tactile feel and security of a printed concert ticket over a virtual one, there’s an HP InkJet printer that can complement your needs.

A cost-effective option for the modern consumer
HP InkJet printers are generally more cost-efficient to purchase compared to laser printers, although you will have to decide which type of device complements your particular workflow.
Need to print on a different surface than just regular paper? You can with HP InkJet technology. Print on a variety of different media like glossy photo paper, stationery, and even fabrics.
HP InkJet printers are best for photo printings, graphics-heavy printing, small to mid-size businesses, and home office use.
HP PageWide means a more efficient printing experience
Boasting best-in-class cost of ownership along with best-in-class energy efficiency, HP PageWide technology
takes advantage of inkjet processes but introduces a revolutionary way to generate your printouts.
Instead of a traditional printhead moving side to side across a paper to create your photo or text document, the printhead spans the entire width of the paper so each line is printed simultaneously as the paper moves through. This means faster results so you’re never standing around waiting at the printer to be done.

Need a printer-scanner? HP has a full range of printer-scanners plus other kinds of HP all-in-one printers
to solve all of your home office device quandaries. You can find inkjet technology in HP printers capable of printing, copying, scanning, faxing, emailing, and printing out gallery-ready photographs.
