Last-Minute Gifts with HP Photo!!

Hey, if you're still frantically searching for those last-minute gifts, I have a wonderful idea for you. This isn't something you'll have to pay an arm and a leg for super-fast shipping and delivery before Christmas. I'm talking about photo gifts that are ready the same day! And all done at your local Wal-Mart store, designed in the store on a super-neat kiosk, powered by HP

I was able to try out a few of the HP photo gifts, and wow was I surprised. I had no idea you could design and order all the different photo products at Wal-Mart, and have them in your hands the same day. I went in to design a photo book and an 8x10 mounted photo, and was impressed with how easy the process was. You can upload photos from a thumb drive, various memory cards, or pull them from the internet. After getting your pictures put onto the kiosk, you can create the photo item of your choice. For the photo book, I was able to choose a design theme, pick how many pictures I wanted per page, edit or crop any pictures, and personalize the book however I wanted. It was very easy, and in less than 20 minutes I had my photo book designed and ordered. 

The Mounted Photo was neat, because after choosing which picture I wanted for this item, it was printed and in my hand in 5 minutes. Then you have to bring it to the photo counter, and they will mount it for you. I had both my photo book and mounted photo in-hand that evening when I went back to the store! I was really stunned at the quality and speedy turn-around time on both items! Check these out:
This is the mounted photo-I love the stunning colors!

I was able to customize the front of my photo book

The other product I was able to create for my review was a 16x20 Premium Canvas. This one actually took a little bit longer than the same-day turn around, because our Wal-Mart was so packed with orders. I literally had to stand in line for 20 minutes waiting for a kiosk to open up-and we have 3 of them at our store! There was a line behind me also waiting, so I understand it taking an extra day for the canvas to be ready. And, after seeing how nicely it turned out, I am convinced that a photo gift from HP is the perfect gift idea! You really can't beat it!

Check your local Wal-Mart today and see all the different photo gifts they have available. Very reasonable prices, and super-fast service guarantee you'll have your gift in time for the holidays!

  1. The Mounted Photo looks fantastic and how quick to get it done in 5 minutes. Photo gifts area always special gifts and I do like to give them. I really like how the photo album came out. I didn't realize Wal-Mart had this service.
