Compact and affordable, the OfficeJet Pro 8720 offers wide ranging features in a space saving package, giving your business everything you’ll need from a colour printer to increase productivity at a price that won’t break the bank.

Low ongoing costs

Save up to 70% on inks and ensure you never run out just before a deadline ever again. Original HP inks are constantly monitored by your printer to ensure that you will never be left without the ability to print. The HP Ink cartridges are larger, XL cartridges, meaning they will last longer, saving you money.

Mobile printing capabilities

With mobile technology changing the way we work, it can be important to pick a printer that is up to the task when it comes to mobile printing. The OfficeJet Pro 8720 features a number of features that allow you to work in a way that best suits you. Wireless printing from Android, Apple, Windows and Amazon devices is a breeze. Furthermore, you can print out of the office by emailing documents directly to the printer.

  • Fred Rix 13 June 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Excellent HP Printer 8720

    great printer for black and colour printing

  • Mal Morrison 21 June 2017 1.5 / 5 Value 2 Features 2 Quality 1 Performance 1 Slow, lumbering very disapointed

    I purchased this model to replace a similar spec printer, but it is unbelievably slow, even copying simple black and white docs. It prints bits you dont want it to print (bits that aren't supposed to print and dont print on other printers). Registration is different so I had to re-align everything to print with equal margins. You can't adjust the colour so you get unexpected results. I gave in in the end and purchased a cheaper model from another company. This will print 10 booklets in less time than the HP takes to print 1! Basically very disappointing all round.

  • R newton 14 December 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Printer

    Good value for money as didn't need the cables just used my old printer ones. Cheaper than PC world. Easy to install and set up.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Please note. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk. Printerland is unable to provide support for Airprint compatible printer software and any such advice should be readily available from the relevant manufacturer or developer.


Voice Activated Printing with Amazon Alexa

Once you’ve enabled the HP Printer Skill from your Amazon Alexa app printing becomes just as easy as talking. You can print various pre-formatted documents such as shopping lists, calendars, puzzles or even colouring pages - and all you need to do is ask!

How to Print

Firstly, you’d need to obtain your HP printers email address to link it to Alexa. This can be located via your printers control panel, or by printing off a Web Services information sheet.

Now you can enable the HP Print Skill from your smartphone or tablet using the Alexa App, or you can enable this skill via the Amazon website if you’re using a computer.

Then all you need to do is enter the email address for you printer, tap finish and start printing.

You can now ask your Echo or other Alexa device to print straight to your HP printer:

“Alexa, ask my Printer to…” and then follow with the content you wish to print. It’s as simple as that.

What can you ask Alexa to print?

Your Alexa device must be set up and connected to your local network, and your HP printer must also be connected to the same local network. This can be by an Ethernet cable or a wireless connection. Please note: The HP Print skill will not work with USB connected printers.

Your printer must also support HP ePrint and Web Services as this cloud-based service is what allows you to print with an Amazon Alexa device.
