Christmas is fast approaching, ideas from us!

Featured

christmas party At InknTonerUK we are preparing for our Christmas party and we are pretty sure that many of our customers are too! We want to give more ideas on things you can do to prepare yourselves for the festivities. All you need is a printer and a bit of imagination!

DIY Christmas crackers

Creating Christmas CrackersAll you would need for this is a template and some artistic flair and you can have yourself some very fun and stylish looking crackers. Personalize it with family photos, remind everyone of the great time they had in the year prior. Or just draw faces and other goofy images on them. And don’t forget to put that corny joke inside too. If you need any inspiration we have been posting many godawful cheesy jokes on our twitter and google+ page.

Christmas party hats

Christmas elf hatsSet the tone of Christmas by making your very own Christmas hats. From elf ones and  all the way across to Santa Claus. There are an endless assortment of ideas for you to try out! Just make sure you measure the heads of those you will be giving the hat to(seen as you actually want it to fit!).

If by any chance you require Inks or printers feel free to take a look at our site.

Be creative this Christmas and you will feel a lot more accomplished when the big day arrives. We do have other ideas on our previous Christmas blog entitled D.I.Y this christmas. And we hope we gave you some more good ideas to get yourself started. Merry Christmas from us at InknTonerUK!

The HP AMP 125 Printer, Our review.

Featured

Hp AMP 125 Printer The new HP AMP 125 printer is a unique take on the idea of making the most out of your space. With style and innovation in mind. Anyone looking for great Bluetooth speaker and printer will definitely kill two birds with one stone with this one.

All-in-one features

The HP AMP 125 has an array of features that expand when you download the HP smart app. With this app you are able to access and print photos straight from your social media(Facebook, twitter etc….) the cloud and your regular camera roll.

High quality speakers

You can easily connect to the speaker portion of the printer via Bluetooth and stream music from all of your favourite apps like Spotify, sound cloud and many more! With Smart Amp Technology, enjoy crystal clear quality and exceptional bass. You can even accept phone calls with its built in mic feature.

Utility

You can connect your phone or other devices to this printer in a variety of different ways, if you are in another room but you need to print you can! This printer comes with wireless connectivity as well as a USB cable for direct connectivity so you are never short of ways to get connected. And yes, for those apple users this printer is compatible with Apple’s Airprint feature. Note that you can also use this printer to charge your hand held devices.

We recommend this printer to students who need to print but without compromising on style and space. This is also a great Christmas gift, no one wants to get a printer for Christmas. But a printer with speakers would definitely fit the bill for a cool present idea. If you already have this printer or you need to look for cheaper inks for it we sell them here at InknTonerUK.

christmas printer

At InknTonerUK we are getting ready for Christmas( We really are! We have a snowman with a hat and everything!) and for the last few years we like to think we are very knowledgeable when it comes to what you can do with paper and a printer in this festive season. So, here we are bequeathing that wisdom to you, the customer. Here is a list of various printables that can get you started in the run up to Christmas!

  1. Gift boxes: Yes gift boxes, if you have any small gifts like jewellery, or maybe you need a place to stash those mini cholates in consider making a foldable Christmas themed gift box. They don’t cost much to make but at the same time it comes across as very thoughtful and gives that personal touch to gift giving!Image result for christmas paper gift boxes

 

  1. Xmas Envelopes: Using those plain old white envelopes to put your card in really makes the card itself that much more underwhelming. Add some xmas flair to it, really make it your own and see for yourself how much of a difference it makes to people’s faces.

Customization envelopes

  1. Tags: Wrappers in themselves always look very good. They are supposed to look fun and exciting. So why not print out your own tags to not only personalise yourprezzies but to make your gift look that much more enticing!customizable tags
  1. Origami: If you really want to test your creativity how about using the origami technique to make flowers, hats, reindeer and much much more! This is a great activity so bring the whole family into it. Christmas day will seem that much better when the whole family has been a part of the preparation.Image result for christmas origami

Microsoft affecting epson printers with latest updateIt has been reported that the November update for Microsoft has affected the overall functionality of some Epson models. Users have mostly reported issues with the Epson LX-310, Epson FX890 and the Epson LQ680. A bug in the update is causing Epson SIDM and Dot matrix computers to be unable to print on x86 and x64-based systems. At InknTonerUK we understand that this may end up affecting some of our customers so we’d like to offer what we know on this issue and how you may want to go about resolving it.

Microsoft themselves have confirmed the issue but have yet to release a fix for it. The issue also isn’t caused by printer drivers, meaning installing different drivers for the Epson printers will not rectify the issue.

You will know if you have this error when your print jobs are terminated with the error message “Win32 error code returned by the processor. 2147500037”.

Microsoft and Epson have determined the cause of the issue and are working on a solution so if you want to be able to use your printer there is a solutions that can help, windows users and admins fix the issue on afflicted machines.

The first option is to go into your control panel and Uninstall the following updates. Be aware that they may have patched security issues on windows machines.

  • KB4048955 for Windows 10 version 1709
  • KB4048954 for Windows 10 Version 1703
  • KB4048958 for Windows 8.1
  • KB4048960 for Windows 7 SP1
  • KB4048953 for Windows 10 Version 1607
  • KB4048957 for Windows Server 2012 R2

 

Apart from that you may just end up having to wait until the next update rolls round to be able to use your printer again. If you have any other issues regarding inks or printers you have bought from us don’t hesitate to contact us on our website https://www.inkntoneruk.co.uk/ where we have a chat feature you can use to get in touch with us.

Extending the life of your printer.

Extending your printer life

Here at InknTonerUK we are passionate about printers and inks. We are also very keen to help our customers keep up their printers longevity and to help avoid common problems. So in this blog we’ll give you a few tips to help you do just that.

  1. A) Cleaning your printers interior

Keeping your printer clear of debris and excess paper and dust is important to keep your printer functioning the best that it can. To do this you should open up the printer, look for the excess and gently wipe it away from the interior. You could also use a can of compressed air to blow the dust from the printer. You need only do this once a month or so.

  1. B) Keeping your printer in standby mode

Finally, turning your printer on and off at the mains can have a negative impact so keep it on standby mode to prevent cartridges from becoming dry and the print head becoming clogged.

If you follow these steps you will drastically extend the lifespan of your printer.

  1. C) Keep the manual feed tray closed when not in use

Make sure when you aren’t using your printer, to keep the feed tray closed. This is to prevent you from knocking over the printer and any other breakages.

  1. D) Replace cartridges before they dry up

Make sure not to wait until the print cartridge is completely dried up before replacing them as a completely dry ink cartridge can lead to wear and tear on your print head (if your printer has one that is separate to the cartridge that is!).

  1. E) Take care when replacing a cartridge

Cartridges need to be replaced quite frequently, but you must be very careful when doing so. Pay careful attention to the instructions and avoid touching the bottom of the cartridge, as doing so can reduce the quality of the print, while also lowering your printers overall longevity.

Epson announces their 3D printing expansion plan

Featured

Epson announces their 3D printing planEpson has announced that they would be expanding their operations globally, along with plans to increase their global revenue “by more than 50 percent” across the next seven years. A new industrial printer will be one of the main products releases they are eager to push into production over the next few years. Epson are very keen in wanting to capitalize of the interesting growth of this market.

The company itself has a very strong grasp over the manufacturing of 2D printers, with both laser and inkjet models having great success with consumers  as well as businesses. Their latest industrial model (the WF-C20590) can deliver printing speeds upwards of 100 pages per minute (ppm) and the company still plans to double this speed with their next iteration.

Five years prior, Epson’s president Usui initially stated that Epson would be heading towards the 3d printing market, but at that time the consumer market for these devices were too niche and wasn’t worth much investment. However the tables have turned, the technology has grown, and 3D printing is becoming a norm for a wide range of professional and industrial applications.

Other avenues Epson are looking to consider include robotics and smart wearables. The company plans to introduce smart glasses with an augmented reality display for commercial and industrial use in Southeast Asia in the fourth quarter. they have also recently acquired Orient watch as part of its high valued watch segment for sensor-based watches for healthcare, sport and fashion.

At InknTonerUK we have a wide range of Epson Printers and inks that are of high quality, as well as being great value for money.
