Dedicated Post & Mother's Day Giveaway - PRESTO prints emails and photos without a computer


Do you have a family member or friend who is offline and doesn't have a computer or email at home? Or a parent or grandparent you'd love to send digital photos to on the same day you take them, but they don't have a computer or internet access?

We introduced Presto to Popgadget readers a few months ago, highlighting the simplicity of this service, which delivers emails, photos and other content to people who don't use a computer. Presto enables you to send emails and photos to the recipient, which then automatically pop out of their HP Presto printer (the HP Printing Mailbox) without any action on their part.

So, considering Grandma never set up a computer, how is she going to set up her Presto printer and service and learn how to operate it? Not to worry, getting started is a breeze. You can go online and set it up for her so that all she needs to do is plug it in, or she can call the Presto Customer Care toll-free line and get it all set up for her. Then the messages are automatically set to print up to 5 times per day (you or Grandma can set the schedule) through an existing phone line.

When you send an email or photo, the printer on the other end produces full color photos and emails without the need to activate anything. Grandma can receive unlimited emails, photos and content from anyone she gives her presto.com email address to. Presto even transforms plain emails with colorful designs.

The printer sells for $150 US and the service fee is $10 per month. And, between now and Mother's Day only, Presto is taking $50 off the cost of the printer, so it's a good time to pick this up for your disconnected friend, parent, or grandparent.

But, of course, one of you is getting it all FREE! Presto is giving away an HP Presto printer to a Popgadget reader and including 3 months of service for free (total value of giveaway is $180). The service is only available within the U.S., so this contest is limited to U.S. residents for use by a U.S. resident.

To enter the contest to win a Presto printer with 3 months of free service, send an email to brook.lenox@presto.com with the subject line "popgadget giveaway," and include in the body of the email your full name and U.S. address. Winners will be selected at random from all valid entries submitted by midnight of Mother's day, May 13, 2007. See the full Popgadget contest rules.

stephen hong:

Interesting! Especially so many of the older generation that is computer illiterate. It simplifies the process by cutting out a step.


Was this a paid ad? I think readers of this blog expect such things to be disclosed..


Curious as to the ink it uses. Is that included in the $10 service fee?

Teresa Nelson:

Woohoo! I won this awesome Presto Mother's day giveaway package. Thank you, PopGadget!
