Mom’s Home Assistant

Expression Premium XP-7100 Small-in-One Printer

How many of you have a home office – a room dedicated solely to getting all administrative and creative tasks at home completed? We have a home office, but I find myself often at the kitchen table plugging away at a blog post, in the kitchen creating a new recipe, or in the backyard taking photos for Instagram (natural lighting is so great in the spring and summer months!)

Our home printer stays in the home-office, so it’s just a matter of zipping downstairs to grab anything I print. Not a big deal most of the year, but a bit annoying during year-end and tax season, admittedly. I wanted to have a printer on our main floor – something small enough to fit in our mud-room (which is the laundry-room/back entrance but somehow mud-room sounds better?) but efficient and cost-effective. Then, just like a Fairy Godmother, Epson delivered the Expression Premium XP-7100 Small-in-One Printer to my door.

At just over 20 pounds, this printer is tiny enough and light enough that you can transport it from our basement to the kitchen table with ease, or tuck it onto a shelf in your mud-room for as-needed use close by.

Epson did all the thinking for busy households in creating this printer. It offers a 30-page Auto Document Feeder; auto 2-sided print/copy/scan; and multiple media feeds. I used the printer to print tickets for the Rock of Ages Tour we just went to last weekend, and with two sided printing I had everything I needed on one sheet of paper, without having to think about it (I impress myself sometimes!)

Where this printer excels for home use is in it’s photo-printing capabilities. With the Creative Print App you can easily print your Facebook and Instagram photos; plus create custom cards, collages and more making photo printing super-easy. You’ve got 5 Claria Premium ink cartridges right in the box: 1x 410 Black ink cartridge; 3x 410 color ink cartridges: Cyan, Magenta and Yellow; 1x 410 Photo Black ink cartridge. You can even print photos up to 8’10 size (borderless). So many of us keep all our photos on our phones – this is a great way to get into the habit of printing the really great ones to frame or (gasp!) put in a photo album!

Now here is where things get really fun! With the Epson iPrint™ App, users can install convenient shortcuts on their iOS device allowing them to print and scan on-demand, without having to navigate software and menus. Need a quick print? Take a picture and ask Siri to print it in seconds. Not sure how much ink you have left? Ask Siri to show you. I love this! Finally an assistant in my household who not only listens to me, but listens on command and responds promptly! I love Siri. (Voice-activated, hands-free printing is now available using Alexa, Siri® and Google Assistant.) Take a look here at all the potential of the Epson iPrint App for more insight and ideas!
