HP Office Jet Pro 9015e Printer

Home printers are not as popular as they use to be, but we recommend investing in one if you’ll be printing your own planner pages. Printing at Staples of Office Depot is an option, but depending on how many copies you need, it could get pricey!

The HP Office Jet Pro 9015e prints every planner page crisp and clear. The tray is also easily adjustable to any planner page size. Most important? This printer doesn’t use a ton of ink!
