Solved!

Can the HP ZINK Sticky-backed 20 Sheet Photo Paper be used in any HP printer?

HP ZINK 20 Sheet

Hello everyone,

 

 

I was considering whether there is the possibility of using the HP ZINK 20 Sheet sticky-backed photo papers in any HP printer.

 

I would like to apologize if my question seems senseless but I would really like to know if there is a way to do so.

Sorry, no.  The ZINK paper has special thermal coating that changes color based on a thermal printhead in a ZINK printer like the Sprocket.  This paper would not work in an Inkjet or Laserjet printer.  None of the HP printers other than the Sprocket are compatible with this paper technology.

 

If you have an HP Inkjet printer there are third party adhesive Inkjet photo papers available that may meet your needs.  Most HP printers can accommodate printer paper down to about 4"x6", you could print four 2"x3" prints on each sheet and then cut them apart.
