Canon’s PIXMA Printing Solutions Helps You Hold On To Precious Moments

If you’re like me, you probably have about 700 photos on your iPhone at any given time. Going one step further, you most likely load the pictures onto a hard drive somewhere and then forget about them. What about the one in a hundred that are actually really great shots? What if I told you that you could snap the picture and then print it out at home from wherever you were at that moment?

With Canon’s PIXMA Printing Solutions you can do just that! Not only can you print your photos from wherever you are snapping them but you can also print off documents, concert tickets and whatever else you don’t want to forget about, and it can all be done from the comfort of your mobile device. You want to scan and print something using only your mobile device? PIXMA Printing Solutions can do that, too!

No more transferring all my photos to the computer and then sorting through all of them until I find the ones I like. From now on I will simply snap a photo, add filters if I’d like and hit print from my phone or camera and then pick up the photo from the printer when I get home. With a busy family, multiple hobbies and a career to juggle, cutting out one middle man is really important to me and the Canon PIXMA Printing Solutions does that for me. Check out the video below for more info on how the app works.

Disclosure: I was compensated for my participation in this program. That said, I really do have over 700 pictures on my phone and will be printing off the best ones remotely just to say that I did it!

Win An HP Envy x2 With Printer In The “HP Loves Dads” Giveaway!

HP Envy X2 Laptop Tablet

This Father’s Day, HP Canada would like to give one of my readers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to think outside the box and win a brand-new HP ENVY x2 and HP ENVY 120 e-All-in-One printer. You are invited to participate in the “HP Loves Dads” Father’s Day Gift Challenge. To enter, you must complete ONE of the following THREE TASKS:

1. HP Loves Dads: Nominate a special father in your life and share why they should receive a new HP ENVY x2 and HP ENVY 120 printer for Father’s Day. Please explain how your father would use the new PC and printer in their everyday life, to balance being productive and staying connected with their loved ones. You can express your nomination through words, photos and captions, or video.

2. Dad’s First Gadget: Nominate a special father in your life and share what his first tech gadget was and what it meant to him.

3. Think It! Make It! Build It!: Create a unique, personalized Father’s Day gift and share it with me. It could be an old, cherished jersey, niftily framed for dad’s “man cave”, a recipe book of dad’s favourite dishes, or a video of the kids doing a choreographed dance created especially for dad. You will be required to share step-by-step instructions on how you created the project and will need to provide a photo or video of the finished Father’s Day gift once complete.

The winning entry, as chosen by me and a panel of great Dads in my life, will be featured on the blog, along with step-by-step instructions on how to recreate it at home, a couple of days before Father’s Day. Sound good?
