Professional quality photos with the HP Photosmart Printer line
Looking for a comprehensive print solution that can also produce lab-quality photos? You’ll want to check out our powerful HP Photosmart Printer line, designed to provide full-function hubs for professional quality standard and photo printing.
Switch seamlessly between standard paper and our varied HP photo paper selection to produce fade- and smudge-resistant photos right at home and for much less time and trouble than you’d spend at an office supply store.
The powerful and affordable HP Photosmart All-in-One Printer
The HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer is an affordable and durable entry into the line. It’s capable of providing an easy one-stop-shop for photographers who also handle a typical document load throughout their year.
Print, scan, copy, and fax whenever you need with a compact and quiet all-in-one. While not intended for higher volumes or larger offices, it does boast zippy print speeds - 12 pages per minute in black ink and more than 8 pages per minute in color. On draft settings, you can come close to tripling that speed when you’re in a rush or handling low priority tasks.
Simple and convenient wireless printing
Whether work keeps you on-the-go every day or even just occasionally, you’re sure to appreciate an HP photo printer designed for easy wireless operation.
To get started, just download our HP ePrint app to your smartphone or tablet and you can print from just about anywhere. The built-in HP Auto Wireless Connect feature also ensures a quick connection every time.
Print more with HP Original Ink and high-yield cartridges
With an HP Photosmart Printer, quality doesn’t mean sacrificing efficiency. You’ll get high-quality prints with each job, whether it’s a draft print of routine paperwork or a high-quality photo, all with our standard HP Original Ink.
When it’s time to resupply, you’ll want to get a new, recyclable HP 564 Black Original Ink Cartridge. Or, you can bundle and save with our HP 564 3-pack Cyan/Magenta/Yellow Original Ink Cartridges.
Want to cut out the hassle of ink replacements or refills? Consider our high-yield options, ranging from HP 564XL High Yield Black Original Ink to a full color line. Print up to twice as much with each cartridge and go that much longer before having to worry about changing it out.
Designed for comfort and ease of use
The HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer is compact and easy-to-use thanks to the generous gesture-enabled touch screen display and independent paper trays for both standard and photo format paper. That means no extra setup is needed when you cycle between photo printing and standard office printing.
With ENERGY STAR® qualification and a frame produced partially from recycled post-consumer plastics, this HP Photosmart printer is also designed to reduce environmental impact.
If you need a printer capable of handling it all, you’ll want an HP Photosmart. We’re confident you’ll love it just as much as we do.
