Hi Friends! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to start thinking about back to school! We have been having such an amazing summer here, I will certainly be sad to see it come to an end and return to the structure and routines of the school year. Since my husband, Scott, is a teacher it has been so nice to have him home this summer. We have spent so much time together as a family—checking things off of our Summer bucket list and creating wonderful memories. Also this school year, specifically, will be a bit more bittersweet than most for me. My oldest son, Sawyer, will be starting first grade. In our school district Kindergarten is a half-day program so this year will be the first time Sawyer will be at school all day and eating lunch in the cafeteria. Although I am sad he will be gone for a longer school day, I am so excited to watch Sawyer grow and achieve great things this year — and, of course, be his biggest cheerleader. During this time of year, I’m always on the lookout for the supplies and tools that will help my family start the school year off smoothly. Today I’m thrilled to share with you HP’s most affordable wireless printer to date — HP DeskJet 2636 All-In-One Printer available at Walmart. I created 3 different back to school printables that I think you may like by using this printer, and I must say I really love it! I’ve outlined all 3 of my projects below and all of the back to school printables are available for free in the printable library.
If you have been following along here for a while, you know how much I love graphic design and creating printable projects for all of you! The number one question I receive, in regards to my printable files, is how to best print them. Where is the best place to print? How should I print this? What type of printer should I purchase? What features should I look for?…etc. Well, I hope this post serves as a resource and answers your printing questions. I am so impressed with this NEW Limited Edition Walmart Exclusive printer because it is so convenient, easy to use and the prints are such high-quality. You can print from your computer or directly from your phone or tablet. The initial set up was so quick too. Within minutes I was printing! Also, by using the HP Smart App, you can send your files to the printer wirelessly from your phone. I absolutely love this wireless feature and since it’s an all-in-one printer it can print, copy and scan. Print and scan on the go? Yes, please! My days are so busy. I can’t always be near my computer so anything that makes my day-to-day life a little easier is a win in my book!
Ok, now let’s see what this printer can do! (I think you will be impressed too!) All of the back to school printables that I created below are available for free in the printable library.
Back to School Printables — Project 1: Routine Charts
The first back to school printable project that I designed and created were these weekly routine charts. When it came to printing off these routine charts, I used my NEW Limited Edition Walmart Exclusive printer, the HP DeskJet 2636 All-In-One Printer, from Walmart. As I mentioned earlier, this will be a year of great growth and independence for Sawyer. To further encourage these skills, I created these printable routine charts — one for the morning and one for evening. After I printed them, I displayed them in 8×10 frames with the idea that each morning and evening Sawyer can use a dry erase marker to check off each task as he completes it. Then, at the end of each school week, the chart can be wiped clean to prepare for the next week.
As I mentioned above, the print quality is really outstanding (and I am super picky!) especially when you use HP Original Ink Combo Pack. The colors are so vibrant and really pop off the paper. By using the HP Original Ink Combo Pack, you can actually print twice as many pages — such a cost savings!
This HP DeskJet 2636 All-In-One Printer from Walmart comes in 3 different inspiring colors options — Gelato, Atlantic Blue, and Dark Sienna. I have a lot of blue accents in my studio so I chose the Atlantic Blue color. The shade is so pretty! Another nice feature that I noticed about this printer is how compact it is. It really does not take up much desk space at all. Also, since it’s wireless, I can even put it in a completely different part of my studio if I am working on a project that requires more desk space. I love this versatility!
Back to School Printables — Project 2: Lunch Box Notes
The second back to school printable project that I created is a collection of lunch box notes. Since eating lunch in the school cafeteria will be a new experience for Sawyer, I would love to ease any jitters he may have with a cute little lunch box note of encouragement. I made these illustrations using so many different colors, textures and fonts. I was really interested to see how they would print. I am so happy with the results — the print quality is fantastic!
Back to School Printables — Project 3: “Welcome Back to the Grind” Coffee Gift
Lastly, we can’t forget a little gift for our new teacher! You all know how much I respect, support and admire teachers and the work they do every day in educating our children. I strongly believe they deserve to be celebrated and recognized for their hard work. Much like a lot of my teacher appreciation gift ideas, I wanted to design a creative gift for Sawyer to give his teacher on the first day of school. Since the school year requires an early wake up call, I thought a gift of coffee would be much appreciated. Who doesn’t need a little caffeine kick at the start of the school year?! I designed a “Welcome Back to the Grind! So excited for a great year!” coffee label that would be paired with a gift of coffee grounds.
To assemble this “Welcome Back to the Grind” coffee gift, follow these 4 steps:
- First, download the free printable (located in the printable library). The printable PDF file contains editable fields for the name. You will need Adobe Reader to personalize the labels. If you don’t have Adobe Reader you can download it for free here.
- Next, open the PDF in Adobe Reader and type the name you would like to include. Then just click “save” and print.
- Next, cut out the entire perimeter of the printable coffee label.
- Lastly, glue or apply double-sided tape to the coffee label and attach to the outside of the bag of coffee grounds. Done! Super easy and a really cute gift!
