There’s nothing more special than homemade Christmas cards, the kids and I always make some for the grandparents. We like glueing and sticking sparkles to our cards and we make sure they’re nice and colourful! We also like to print out our favourite Christmas photos and use these on our cards, it’s always a lovely gift for someone special.
So when IJT Direct contacted me asking if I would like to try out some of their ink cartridges this Christmas, I jumped at the chance! As well as plenty of ink, I was sent a very stylish new Canon printer, apparently one that’s great for printing photographs.
IJT Direct sell recycled inkjets and toners, which can cost up to 80% less of other manufacturer branded inks. Not only does this save on printing costs for the customer, but it also helps to save the planet as it reduces the pressure on landfill sites, all with no loss to the quality! They also have some great deals on branded printers such as the Canon Pixma MG5750 that I was sent, even offering printers for free when you purchase printer ink or toner cartridges!
The printer I was sent was simple to set up and I soon had it connected to my phone and laptop. The kids and I decided what we wanted to print and we got started. Printing was easy as it is wireless so I could print straight from my phone.
We printed a range of things including some Christmas colouring sheets and even some advent calendars. These printed out well and looked great but we were really impressed with the quality of the photographers we printed.
We chose a couple of festive photos from the other weekend to print so we can make some cards for grandparents. The standard and quality of the prints were very high, the photographs look great! We used glossy photo paper and they look fab!
The kids then spent the next few hours colouring and sticking. The Christmas cards they made look lovely, I’m sure their Grandparents are going to love them.
