Edited to add: I e-mailed my contact at the PR firm coordinating this giveaway and the shipping. They WILL ship the printer to Canadian residents.
As promised in this flashback post of polyester fabulousness, I am having a giveaway for a Kodak Easyshare 5300 printer sent to me recently by a PR firm to review. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to find that it slices, dices, and will even cure your New Year’s Day hangover.
I’ve been very pleased with this printer, which is an all-in-one product that scans, copies, and prints. Honestly it’s been like an early Christmas present for me and I’ve been using it to scan old family Polaroids. It’s been taking me less than 5 minutes per photo to scan and touch them up and even crop them using the Kodak software. The printer was easy to install and the hubby, who set it up for me, was impressed that the 5300 actually came with a USB cable. He’s never seen that with any printer he’s purchased, and trust me, he has purchased lots of printers for clients. Now if you want to get super fancy with cropping and photo retouch, you’ll need to save your photo after scanning it and then use your own software as the Kodak software has basic options. Personally, that’s fine by me. I’m not a Photoshop girl (and I don’t even have Photoshop on my computer.)
I recently ordered online digital prints from Target and the quality of the photos I printed at home on the 5300 matches the quality. You can also stick your digital camera memory card directly into the 5300 without uploading them first to your computer. For someone who takes a bazillion photos, like me, this is like having a digital print kiosk in your own home. The Kodak 5300 also offers inexpensive replacement ink cartridges. The color ink cartridges sell for $14.99; the black and white cartridges sell for $9.99.
To be entered into the drawing for an Kodak Easyshare 5300 all-in-one printer, just leave a comment telling me what you would use the printer for, should you win. For two entries in the giveaway, leave a comment telling me what you would use the printer for AND link to this giveaway post on your own blog. You just need a valid e-mail address to enter (no blog required for one entry) and be a resident of the United States or Canada. I’ll draw a winner from the comments, which will be open until midnight CST on Saturday.
For another chance to win this fabulous printer, Kodak is featuring a Pricey Ink Stinks contest at Brickfish through Friday.
