I was pinning some teacher memes on Pinterest last night, and this one caught my eye!
I'm pretty sure it was because I was super stoked that the mailman finally delivered my long awaited I N S T A N T I N K!

BUT THE COST OF INK!!!!!!!Instant Ink is great because you can print absolutely any document for only three cents! All that color?!?! Don't worry about it!
|By the way, my friend, Jacqueline, made this awesome set!|
I recently heard about Instant Ink. It's a product that HP sells to take the worry out of printing in color. Basically, you pay a monthly fee, and then you can print up to a certain number of pages a month. If you go over, you pay per page at the same rate as the subscription. If you don't use them all, they roll over into the next month. I subscribed to the $9.99 plan, and I can print 300 pages per month.

|Included in my first shipment were extra high capacity cartridges and a postage paid return bag.|
- You can print all those task cards and teacher resources with no guilt or worry.
- You can print photographs in full color.
- You'll never have to go to the store to buy ink again.
- You'll never run out of ink while mid-project.
- Instant ink can be much cheaper than traditional cartridges.
- You can get a month free with the code FREEINK at checkout.
- (I guess you could even get your free month, print 300 posters for your class, and then cancel after your month so your classroom decorations would be provided by HP.)
- You can cancel anytime.
- If you print a lot of black and white documents, it may actually be much more expensive. You are paying for 300 pages. It doesn't make a difference if that page has one tiny word on it or if it is completely saturated with colored ink. Either way, it costs three cents.
- If you go over the 300, you are automatically charged for the extra pages you have printed.
- You have to have a computer that's compatible with Instant Ink. Click here to see those. I bought a new one just so I could get Instant Ink. It was on sale for $99 at Office Depot, and it is awesome!
- If you print in color a lot, get it! If you don't, you'd be better off buying the high-capacity cartridges at the office supply store.
- Keep two printers at your house: one for black/white printing and one for colored printing.
- Keep track of your own printing for a couple of months to see how many copies you actually use.
- Keep a mental note of every time the thought of printing in color deters you from buying something on TpT or completing a particular lesson.
