Print without ink. Yes, you did read that right.

How it Works

ZINK® stands for Zero Ink® - a technology that produces photo-quality, full-color print without using ink cartridges, ribbons, or toner. The technology encompasses both the ZINK Paper® within each zRoll™ and the intelligence embedded in every ZINK Smart APP Printer™ The fundamental concept is simple, yet extraordinary: Heat from the hAppy or hAppy+ activates the unique color-forming crystals embedded in the layers of ZINK Paper. Color then emerges to form a full-color print.

ZINK Paper® -- Innovations in Physics

The cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals that enable the magic of ZINK, were invented by ZINK Imaging scientists through a rigorous discovery process. Each molecule is finely tuned, colorless and invisible to the naked eye. When activated at very high temperatures for fractions of a second, the crystals move from colorless to colored to create beautiful images. When cooled, the crystals new color state is permanently retained.

ZINK® Dye Crystals -- Magic Molecules

With each zRoll is more than 19' of ZINK Paper®, an advanced composite material composed of multiple layers of color-forming chemistry. The multiple layers are coated as a think "stack" onto a base layer. A polymer coating protects the layers from moisture, UV exposure, and fading. Amazingly, all the layers combined is less than the thickness of a human hair. ZINK Paper looks like regular white photo paper until heat activates the different color layers independently to create full-color.

The "idea" of this printer is not bad. But I just can't get past the cost.

It's outrageously expensive. Not only is the printer itself expensive, but the rolls of "tape" are also very expensive. (I hate to say this, because I love Amazon, but you can find them a lot less expensive from Zink directly, at least at the time I'm writing this review. I've notified Amazon, and hopefully they will lower the price to at least match Zink.) Also, you have to use a "cleaning" roll after every 20 - 30 prints, another expense. Not using ink is not really a "benefit", cost wise, when the rolls of "tape" cost so much. Also, a ¼ inch is "wasted" on each end of each label. Often, when you purchase a printer, the printer itself is inexpensive because the printer company hopes/knows/believes you're going to buy their brand of ink, so that's where they make their $$. It would be nice if Zink were the same way. Charge a MUCH lower rate for the printer if you're going to charge so much for the "tape".

The picture is a little misleading. It shows a 2" tape. But the printer comes with a ½" (short) roll. You can't really do a lot with a ½" roll. Return address labels. .. . perhaps labels for file folders. . . .and of course scrapbooking.

Speaking of scrapbooking, that's really the main reason I see that you might want to use this printer.

It took a bit of "work" to set-up the printer with my iPad. . . .but I didn't have any trouble setting it up. It just took a bit of time.

It has a very "odd" way of cutting the tape. You have to press and run your finger along what looks like a dark black strip on the top front of the printer. This is actually an indentation. Why on earth they didn't just have a button to press to cut the tape. . . or. . .

Although I think inkless printers are a great idea, the quality and price are just not there yet.

I don't like that you HAVE to create an account with Zink (you MUST provide an email for this) in order to use the app and printer.
Also, in the "Terms and Conditions" section, you cannot deselect the "Receive hAppy emails and offers" box. I resent that. I DON'T want to receive emails and offers! It remains to be seen how often they will be emailing me. I hope it's easy to unsubscribe or else I will have to mark their emails as spam.

Setting up the printer to connect to my iPhone and iPad was not difficult, but took several minutes.
The app was fairly easy to use. You can choose from any of the provided images and fonts or use your own photos.

The quality of the prints was just okay. I would have loved this product if the image was better resolution. The images seemed a bit fuzzy to me. You really notice this with text.
The images are overprinted so that you don't get white edges on either side. That is great but I am getting a bit of a white edge at the top right of EVERY printout. (It is about 1mm at the top right and fades down to nothing about 1 ½ to 2 inches toward the left.) I don't know if this is a problem from the printer or a problem from the print cartridge. I won't know until I buy a new cartridge and test it out.

The paper itself is glossy and very durable. You cannot tear it with your fingers. You need to cut it with scissors.
I don't like that each printout wastes 8mm on either side of the print. That's 16 mm total (0.63 inches) per printout. That may not seem like much but since the refills are really expensive that really is a major issue.

Length: 5:21 Mins
There are a lot of restrictions or stuff that you have to do with this printer:
*Have a smart phone (I think it would work on tablets, too)
*Install the very lengthy android/iPhone application (It took about 30 minutes for me, and it failed once during the installation. That's forever in android app install time.)
*You can't use a PC or a Mac to interface with this at all. You need an android phone or iPhone.
*You really need to get the 2" printer paper. This printer only comes with the 1/2" printer paper, which is way too skinny for most projects.
*You need to use WiFi. You can't use a 3g or 4g connection to do any printing.
*You need to do a bunch of reconfiguring the options before you can just print out a picture, without printing out a long trailing label

But, if you understand all of that, and if you do all of that configuring, this little device is awesome! It basically turns your phone into a photo booth. And, the configuration software is pretty cool, too. You can either directly print off photos, or you can spend some time configuring a nice label with photo, text and backgrounds.

Pros:
+It does come with a full-sized print cartridge (19 feet long), but it is only a 1/2"
+Turns your phone into a photo booth
+Pretty good photo editing software
+All of the pictures are also labels

Cons:
-You have to be connected to the same WiFi network. So, you can't print your pictures at home while you're across town.
-Since all of the pictures are also labels, you have to use everything as a label
-It takes a while to learn the software and get comfortable with everything
-I know I said this already, but the only connection is Smart Phone via WiFi
-You need to also get the 2" paper roll in addition to this printer
